Today in discarded timeless classics



EVG reader David shares this photo... showing an Eames Lounge Chair and ottoman (black/rosewood) discarded on the curb outside 217 E. Third St. between Avenue B and Avenue C.

Currently priced at $4,500.75 online.

and BOOM, it is gone.

Congratulations to whoever snagged this!
I have a soft spot in my heart for East Village Eames furniture.
On the same block, my block, in about 1997, iI found a 1952 seafood green SAX chair.

Cheers, David

It's too new looking to be the real deal and left on the street. Knock-off.

Still, knock-off or not, I hope someone snagged both pieces. The waste in this city is gross.

That was either a joke, or revenge.
