Last night after dinner at Serendra, I dragged Jeroen to the Herman Miller store on the second level.
Jeroen had never been up there. We looked at the SMEG refrigerators for a future house, some beautiful FLOS lamps, and finally this shop:
The Herman Miller showroom is very small and was relaunched last November 2012.
Jeroen really liked this setup
I liked the Airia media cabinet
There’s the iconic Nelson marshmallow sofa
The Eames molded plywood chair
The Eames wire chair
The Nelson coconut chairs
and finally the Eames Rocker—the real thing
So gorgeous, I’ve always wanted one. This was taken in Hong Kong in 2010
I thought I got a good deal when I found one in Beijing and brought it home
Then I found out last night that real Eames rockers are matte—not glossy—according to the lady in the showroom. No wonder it was affordable! So Ely, you and I have copies pala. Ngek!
Matte, not glossy. Bullet day, I’ll have a real one.
