Designed by Charles and Ray Eames for Herman Miller®, 1956
"A special refuge from the strains of modern living." — Charles Eames

Comfortable and classic, authentic and approachable, this design by Charles and Ray Eames takes a stunning turn in a new black incarnation. Ebony veneer and supple black leather combine for an appealing sophistication equally appropriate for upscale and casual interiors alike.

The Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman are instantly recognizable. The subject of documentaries and books, part of the permanent collections of major art museums, the lounge chair and ottoman provide both sophisticated style and luxurious comfort in your home.

Comfort Always Comes First
The lounge chair has been described as a 20th century interpretation of a 19th century English club chair. The seat is angled to take the weight off the base of your spine; the lower back piece supports your lower back. The angle of the upper back piece that supports your chest allows you to move around comfortably while you're sitting.

The Design Story
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, and it's part of the permanent collection of New York's Museum of Modern Art.

Charles Eames said his goal for the chair was the "warm, receptive look of a well-used first baseman's mitt." Every one is a special refuge from the strains of modern living.
Herman Miller® is a pioneer in the furniture industry, an innovator whose human-centered, problem-solving approach to design introduced new ways of living and working for over 100 years. Environmentally-friendly design, lean manufacturing, ergonomics, the open office, even American modernism itself: Herman Miller and their designers—Gilbert Rohde, George Nelson, Charles and Ray Eames, Bill Stumpf, Yves Béhar, and many more—have had a hand in shaping it all. And as Herman Miller continues to live out our commitment to authentic design as a method of change, they are shaping the new kinds of spaces where people will live and work for years to come.
