Designers: Ray and Charles Eames, 1956
"A special refuge from the strains of modern living." — Charles Eames

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.

Updated to complement today's lighter interiors, this white ash version of the design by Charles and Ray Eames is a fresh take on the authentic Eames chair and ottoman. Offered here in MCL Leather for the cushions; the shells are a white ash veneer finished with a process that arrests wood in its "freshly cut" state. A comfortable fit both at home and in workspaces, it remains "a special refuge from the strains of modern living."

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.

Priced here in Category 11 Pearl or Ivory MCL Leather,and Category L, Mohair Fabric.
Unparalleled Craftsmanship
Herman Miller still assembles the chair and ottoman by hand, with 7-ply wood veneer shells. The leather-covered cushions are individually upholstered and each can be replaced if necessary. The back braces are die-cast aluminum. The chair base has a built-in swivel mechanism.

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.
