The Eames Lounge Chair is internationally recognized as an icon. Having lived in museums and homes around the world, the modern lounge chair has proven itself time and again that it is a timeless classic. From the creative minds of Charles and Ray Eames, the lounge chair came to be through their studies on molding plywood and an eagerness to improve upon the typical lounge chair. Drawing inspiration from the English club chair, Charles Eames took to redesigning the familiar site and updating it with a modern profile while offering the warm receptive look of a well-used first baseman's mitt. Popularity was instantaneous with the release of the modern lounge chair. Since 1956, the iconic seat has lost little momentum in its acclaim to fame within the design industry. Undoubtedly, there was nothing quite like it nor anything close to being its equal; and even to this day, the modern lounge chair continues to steak its claim even as it ages.
Built for optimal comfort, the Eames Lounge Chair is permanently tilted in order to redistribute weight placement towards the back of the chair, rather than the lower spine, while providing support for the lower back and chest. Needless to say, the modern lounge chair offers unparalleled and consistent quality stemming from a combination of innovative hardware and a mix of hand crafting and manufacturing. Between its authenticity and durability, the icon ensures lasting excellence along with minimal care for its premium grade materials. While the cushions promise to never flatten or clump over time, the leather upholstery guarantees graceful aging and the finishes promise to keep its original luster so long as minimal effort is taken to care of it (such as periodic hand oiling of the wood veneer and intermittent dusting of the lacquered finish). Little has changed within the realm of the modern lounge chair's merit from its expansion of options since the original rosewood finish; each finish and upholstery meet and exceed expectation when being fitted with its new arrangement. Being one of the most significant furniture designs of the 20th century, the Eames Lounge Chair from Herman Miller offers a design lift to any situation due to the instant recognition as an icon an enduring, fresh design.
