Eames 3473 Sofa (1964)
Made by Herman Miller
This is a 3473 sofa, originally designed by Charles and Ray Eames for Herman Miller in 1964. It is constructed from aluminum, iron, and plywood. It was recently recovered (2021) in black naugahyde, which was Charles Eames' preferred material for these. It was aptly named after its catalog number, 3473. The 3473 was only in production for 9 years (1964-1973), rendering this piece quite rare.
The sofa is 29 inches long, 72 inches wide and 34 inches high. It has a seat height of 17 inches. It is in terrific shape, the matte naugahyde is pristine. There are some small scuffs to the aluminum base. Overall, this sofa is in very good vintage condition with minimal wear to the upholstery and light wear to the frame. Please see photos.
