Design by Charles & Ray Eames, 1958.
Made in the U.S.A. by Herman Miller.
Herman Miller introduced the Eames Aluminum Group in 1958 as Charles and Ray Eames' response to the need for high-quality indoor-outdoor furniture. It soon moved inside exclusively. This upholstered ottoman has a lightweight polished aluminum frame and 0.5" glides for hard floors or carpet.
The Aluminum Group, upholstered in traditional fabric or leather, is ribbed at 1-7/8" intervals for a clean, refined appearance. The Eames Aluminum Group Ottoman is ideally paired with Aluminum Group Chairs.
Select base/frame finish, then upholstery textile color.
Tested and warranted for use by persons 300 pounds and under.
Material(s): Aluminum with Messenger fabric (78% post-industrial recycled polyester, 15% polyester, 7% nylon)
Dimensions: 21.5" W X 21" D X 18.25" H
Much taller and larger than we expected
By: Lorraine (NYC)
At first we were sure that this ottoman could be lowered but we found no hardware to lower it. Finally we realized that (only) when you lean way back in the chair, then the fixed height of the ottoman is appropriate. I guess the only time one really wants an ottoman is when one leans way back in the chair -- so that is logical. But as I am less heavy than my husband, I cannot easily get the chair to lean back as far as he can, and so the ottoman is a bit too high for me. Also it is rather large as a surface . . . so we use it like a side-table now. Or just store it way off to the side . . . We are glad we have it for when we do need it, but it is about 20% larger in scale than we think it needs to be and wish it were adjustable in height. It is a beautiful object and goes well with the chair, in any case.
Eames Aluminum Ottoman in 2111 Graphite Leather
By: Alex, Homeowner (Vancouver, Canada)
I purchased this ottoman along with an Eames Aluminum Lounge Chair. I love both pieces. This is a classic design. My only slight hesitation is that I find the ottoman quite large in contrast to the lounge chair. The chair is sleek and low profile, taking up very little space and great for a small, urban apartment. I often find myself storing the ottoman though, as it is much larger/taller in contrast and just takes up too much space in my living room. I'm glad I ordered them together though, as who knows whether you'd have much luck getting the leather matched down the road, just keep your space in mind when considering both the chair and the ottoman. I would have loved to have seen it 20% smaller.
Designer: Charles + Ray Eames
A chair that looked like a potato chip. Another that resembled a "well-used first baseman's mitt." A folding screen that rippled...
With a grand sense of adventure, Charles and Ray Eames turned their curiosity and boundless enthusiasm into creations that established them as a truly great husband-and-wife design team. Their unique synergy led to a whole new look in furniture. Lean and modern. Playful and functional. Sleek, sophisticated, and beautifully simple. That was and is the "Eames look."
That look and their relationship with Herman Miller started with molded plywood chairs in the late 1940s and includes the world-renowned Eames lounge chair, now in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York.View other products by Charles + Ray Eames
