Description

The first Eames lounge chair and ottoman was designed by Charles and Ray Eames as a gift for Billy Wilder, the director of classic film 'Some Like It Hot'. Making its public debut in 1956 on Arlene Francis's Home show, Charles Eames said his goal for the chair was that it be "a special refuge from the strains of modern living".

The chair, which is manufactured by Vitra, is a contemporary and luxurious interpretation of the traditional gentlemen’s club chair with matching ottoman. It combines modern sculptural lines of Santos Palisander wood veneer shells and removable supple natural leather upholstery to create a design classic that is comfortable and visually stylish.

It has a die cast aluminium frame on shock mounts for flexible movement, a quirky signature five arm base and a functional swivel action. It is available in black and white. Each piece will carry Charles and Ray Eames signature as a mark of authenticity.

Care instructions: Leather should require no more than a wipe with a warm, damp, soft cloth to remove any dirt, followed by drying with a soft cloth - avoid using detergent.
