Originally designed by Charles and Ray Eames in 1956 as a gift for the director Billy Wilder, the all black Classic Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman is crafted by esteemed manufacturers Vitra.
A contemporary and luxurious interpretation of the traditional gentleman’s club chair with matching ottoman, the chair was conceptualised as a "a special refuge from the strains of modern living."
Combining modern sculptural lines of black lacquered ash veneer shells and removable supple natural leather upholstery to create a design classic, the pairing is comfortable and visually stylish.
Boasting a die cast aluminium frame that rests on shock mounts for flexible movement, a quirky signature five arm base and a functional swivel action, each Lounge Chair and Ottoman carries Charles and Ray Eames’ signature as a mark of authenticity.
Praised by our founder Sir Terence Conran as "the perfect example of design, innovation and beauty all coming together in one package," the Eames Lounge Chair and ottoman are truly iconic design pieces that would enhance any home.
