Estate Sale finds!

Well I took Friday off, to get some work done. While I am slowly getting all of the birch plywood installed, I am down to the small intricate pieces, so while it seems like I got a lot done this weekend the pictures don't do it justice. Friday on my way to grab a sandwich for lunch I saw a sign for an estate sale right up the street from me. Since it was around 90 on Friday, I was in no hurry to get back to work to sweat some more so I decided to stop in and see what they had to offer. I walked in and immediately saw the Knoll desk, then I walked in the living room and spied the eames Lounger. I immediately recognized the knock-off (its a plycraft knock off). Then I took a good look at the chair and the price and decided that while I would love to have the Herman Miller 50th anniversary Eames Lounge Chair (http://www.dwr.com/productdetail.cfm?id=9170) I decided that this would be just fine for 1/10 of the price. Its in extremely good shape for an old chair, I was told that it has been in storage for 15 years and was assembled for the sale. Its missing one button on the chair but the leather is in really good shape. The knoll desk is in really good shape as well. It may be a bit big for the new office/bedroom but I couldn't pass up a good deal.
The last item shown is the credenza I purchased from the original owners of my home. I don't know who made it, so if any of you have any information on any of these pieces let me know.
