Design by Charles & Ray Eames, 1956.
Made in the U.S.A. by Herman Miller.
The Eames® Lounge Chair and Ottoman are considered among the most significant and collectible furniture designs of the 20th century. When the set was introduced in 1956, there was nothing else like it. The design was completely new and merged comfort with a clean, yet welcoming aesthetic. Today, the pair remains a true icon of modern design. Built by hand, just as it was originally, the meticulously constructed set includes rich wood veneer shells with supple leather upholstered seating.
The timeless and luxurious Eames® Lounge Chair and companion Ottoman feature molded veneer seat and back shells, 6" thick foam cushions with leather upholstery and black enameled bases with polished aluminum trim. Cushions are individually upholstered and replaceable; back cushions are interchangeable and shock mounts are resilient natural rubber. Shells are made of a durable seven-ply wood veneer with base and back braces in die-cast aluminum. All pieces are hand assembled here in the U.S., and are produced from wood harvested exclusively from sustainably managed forests.
