Own a true icon of modern design
Like all classics, the Eames lounge chair and ottoman get better with age, in part because of how they are made. From the innovative hardware that fastens the cushions to the shell without marring the appearance of the wood to the fact that each piece continues to be assembled by hand, the combination of craft and manufacturing consistency results in pieces that are genuinely authentic.
Both the chair and ottoman are hand-assembled with great attention paid to the details. Shells are 7-ply veneers. Cushions are individually upholstered and replaceable. The back braces and bases—of both the chair and ottoman—are die-cast aluminum. The chair base has a built-in swivel mechanism. Shock mounts are resilient natural rubber. Stainless steel glides are adjustable. The details are what makes the Eames Lounge Chair stand the test of time.
The Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman has become so recognizable that its configuration is a registered trademark. That form and the materials used to create it are an integral part of the experience the set delivers. Today, the chair and ottoman are available in two sizes, a variety of veneers, and a choice of leather upholstery options to fit any style. The same high level of quality and workmanship is guaranteed, regardless of the selection you make.
Luxurious Comfort and Support
The comfort and support built into the Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman help explain their enduring popularity. As Charles Eames put it, It is the perfect combination of elegant design and perfect comfort that has made this icon "a special refuge from the strains of modern living."
A modern take on the nineteenth century club chair
When the set was introduced in 1956, there was nothing like it, and there is still nothing to equal it. The Eames’ modern take on a nineteenth century club chair has not only endured for more than 50 years, it has become one of the most significant furniture designs of the twentieth century—instantly recognizable and enduringly fresh.
