Making its public debut in 1956 on Arlene Francis’ ‘Home’ show, Charles Eames said his goal for this iconic chair was that it be “a special refuge from the strains of modern living”. The first Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman was designed by Charles and Ray Eames as a gift for Billy Wilder, director of the classic film ‘Some Like It Hot’.
The chair, which is manufactured by Vitra, is a contemporary and luxurious interpretation of the traditional gentlemen’s club chair, provided with a coordinating ottoman for superior comfort.
The Classic Eames Lounge Chair combines modern sculptural lines of cherry veneer and supple chocolate leather upholstery to create a design classic that is as comfortable as it is stylish. Its basic dark powder coated steel frame on shock mounts provides flexible movement, as well as a unique five arm base and functional swivel action.
The Lounge Chair is one of Charles and Ray Eames’ most famous designs and has attained the status of a classic in the history of modern furniture. Each Lounge Chair and Ottoman carries Charles and Ray Eames’ signature as a mark of authenticity.
