Eames® Lounge Chair & Ottoman

Charles and Ray Eames
Who doesn't love the Eames lounge chair and ottoman? It's the quintessential example of mid-century design -- elegant and profoundly comfortable. The heritage of the chair goes back to the molded plywood chairs pioneered by Charles and Ray Eames in the 1940s. Charles Eames said his goal for the chair was that it be "a special refuge from the strains of modern living."

When the Eames chair and ottoman was introduced in 1956, there was nothing else like it. The design was completely new. It has not only endured for more than 50 years, it has become one of the most significant furniture designs of the 20th century. Instantly recognizable. And still fresh.

Like all classics, the chair and ottoman just get better with age. Both are hand-assembled with superb attention paid to the details. Shells are natural cherry (+$80), walnut, santos palisander (+$950), ebony (+$1000, available in ebony leather only) or white ash (+$1000, available in MCL pearl, MCL ivory or MCL almond leather only). Leather options are black, graphite, smoke, ivory, olive, wheat, mink, tobacco, copper, honey and canyon; for ebony shell only, ebony; for white ash shell only, MCL pearl, MCL ivory and MCL almond.

All veneers used on the chair and ottoman are from sustainably managed forests. Herman Miller uses 28% recycled materials in the chair, which is 37% recyclable, and uses 28-30% recycled materials in the ottoman, which is 31-37% recyclable. It's much more likely, however, that you will pass this chair on to another generation.
