3473 Sofa (1964)
Made by Herman Miller
Listed for sale is a very rare Eames for Herman Miller 3473 sofa with recent (C. 2021) black upholstery, masterfully re-done by Forthright NYC, the noteworthy upholstery shop based in NY and CT. The 3473 sofa was a limited-production piece, which was quickly discontinued by Herman Miller due to the considerable labor and cost that was involved with production. This example is upholstered in the most iconic upholstery choice for these 3473 sofas, which is a black naugahyde. The 3473 was indented to be more luxurious than the similar Eames sofa compact. It features cast aluminum supports and a robust metal frame.
