Introduced by two of the most influential designers of the 20th century, Charles and Ray Eames, the Herman Miller Eames Lounge chair has remained a modern design icon for over 60 years, setting an enduring standard for comfort and elegance. Lean and modern, playful and functional, sleek, sophisticated and beautifully simple, it epitomizes the “Eames look.” This is a chair that fits practically anywhere in your home, from the living room to the office, and in Charles' words, functions as “a special refuge from the strains of modern living.”
The most important aspect of the Eames Lounge Chair is undoubtedly how comfortable it is. The designers wanted the chair to have the warm, receptive look of a well-used first baseman's mitt, and in this regard the chair's aesthetic of comfort differed from the prevailing Spartan look of other modernist furniture of that era and still sets it apart today. Some of the chair's distinctive features include:
- Flexing headrest and backrest
- 7-layer plywood frame/shell with Walnut or Santos Palisander wood veneer
- 6-in. thick urethane foam Cushions upholstered with rich leather
- Die-cast aluminum back/bottom supports, die-cast aluminum swivel base
The timeless look of the Eames Lounge chair has earned it a spot in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York, and it makes a distinctive, luxurious addition to your home and office.
Designed for living
When they were conceptualizing the chair, Charles explained that the designers wanted it to have the “warm, receptive look of a well-used first baseman's mitt.” As Charles and Ray’s home provided the backdrop for the couple’s gracious hosting of a famously eclectic group of friends and associates, providing “a special refuge from the strains of modern living,” so too the lounge chair and ottoman were conceived to provide welcoming comfort to the body.
The Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman debuted on national television in 1956. Charles and Ray Eames appeared on the NBC television network Home show hosted by Arlene Francis. Stardom ensued for both design and designers. Yet, as popular as the lounge chair and ottoman have become, they remain grounded in the handcrafted details that continue to distinguish this classic, authentic design.
