Who doesn't recognize the Eames lounge chair and ottoman? They live in museums like MOMA in New York and the Art Institute of Chicago and in the most stylish interiors around the world. They have been the subject of documentaries and books. The quintessential modern classic, the set is now available in an expanded range of materials, to suit any interior and every taste.
Charles and Ray Eames designed the lounge chair and ottoman as a gift for their friend Billy Wilder, the director of "Some Like It Hot" and "Sunset Blvd." Celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2006, the Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman are considered among the most significant and collectible furniture designs of the 20th century. The rich veneer and supple leather suggest old-fashioned luxury translated into modern forms, setting an enduring standard for comfort and elegance.
As popular as it’s become, the lounge chair remains grounded in the details that continue to distinguish it. In addition, the lounge chair and ottoman are also available in a veneer called Palisander that captures the original's unique look. The Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman is the culmination of Charles and Ray Eames' efforts to create comfortable and handsome lounge seating by using production techniques that combine technology and handcraftsmanship. Its heritage goes back to the molded plywood chairs pioneered by the Eames in the 1940s. Charles Eames said his goal for the chair was the "warm, receptive look of a well-used first baseman's mitt." Everyone is a special refuge from the strains of modern living. The first lounge chair and ottoman, produced in 1956, made its public debut on Arlene Francis' Home show, which later became the Today show.
