The chair that defined an age.
Made from seven layers of moulded plywood over an aluminium frame with soft, high-quality leather and real wood veneer, the Lounge Chair - and its perfectly judged, matching Ottoman - becomes an old friend the moment it first enters your home or office reception.
A perfect contradiction – the Eames Lounge Chair was designed as an update of the traditional, English club chair using unashamedly modern and luxurious materials. The result, recognised as an instant classic on its 1956 unveiling, is something that is at once both sophisticated and contemporary yet also familiar and timeless. Charles Eames described it as having "the warm, receptive look of a well-used first baseman's mitt." You don’t have to be a baseball fan to understand what he means the first time that you sink into the seat.
Shown here in white Italian leather, a great alternative colour for your Lounge Chair's upholstery that brings this design into the 21st century.
