Product Description

Eames® Lounge Chair and Ottoman

Today it’s one of the most widely recognized and imitated furniture designs, but Charles Eames's goal for the Lounge Chair and Ottoman, featured in the Museum’s collection, was much more modest. He wanted to build a chair with "the warm receptive look of a well-used first baseman's mitt." He nestled supple leather-covered cushions in molded-plywood, veneer-covered forms and connected them with die-cast aluminum back braces. The cushions were then set on bases painted black with bright polished aluminum trim and adjustable stainless steel glides.

Now an icon of modern design, the chair has been produced continuously for over 50 years by the original manufacturer, Herman Miller®. This authorized version is made of molded, seven-ply veneered plywood and is upholstered in an environmentally friendly top-grain leather made from 100% all grain hides. Each hide has an inherent natural beauty that gives the leather a more unique look and much softer feel than traditional leathers that are sanded and pressed. A light water-based protective coating offers added durability without sacrificing the leather's rich texture and distinct touch.
