Design by Charles & Ray Eames, 1956.
Made in the U.S.A. by Herman Miller.
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.
Want something more to love? How about durable construction: cushions are individually upholstered and replaceable; back cushions are interchangeable and shock mounts are resilient natural rubber. Shells are made of a durable seven-ply wood veneer; the base and back braces are die-cast aluminum. All pieces are hand assembled, and are produced from wood harvested exclusively from sustainably managed forests.
New in 2011, Herman Miller has focused considerable effort on retaining the original design intent of Charles and Ray Eames for this model. To this end, new oiled finishes are now available. The oiled finish closely matches the look and feel that was originally offered on this design and gives these veneers a lustrous appearance. Just like the original oiled finish, it will need to be maintained for years of enjoyment. And the fit and finish of the Eames Lounge cushions has been altered to their original design as well. "The leather cushions do have built-in wrinkles to start with, but that is a clue that spells comfort to come, like the warm receptive look of a well-used first baseman's mitt." (Charles Eames).
The fixed-height Eames Lounge Chair features a molded veneer seat and back shell. It has 6" thick foam cushions with leather upholstery, a black enameled base with polished aluminum trim, and a swivel mechanism. Select wood veneer or new oiled finish. Then select leather type and color. Also available in the new Eames® White Ash Lounge Chair.

Material(s): Molded veneer, foam and aluminum with Metallic Dream Cow Leather (100% leather)
This classic design is always a winner!
By: Stanley K., Homeowner (Baltimore, Maryland)
This chair is a beautiful addition to our family room. The classic design and the combination of the Palisander and brown leather makes for a real show stopper. Ordering this chair through Y Living was a pleasure. They were thorough in making sure that this chair would match the chair we already have. The chair was shipped within the time frame given. The delivery company was prompt, courteous and professional making sure that the chair was in perfect condition before leaving our home. We couldn't be happier!
if I was shorter , it would be 5 starts easy!
By: Bookwormwmb, Homeowner (bethesda maryland)
I love the design of the chair . it is so comfortable for my back which gets kinked in many chairs. I love the color which is sage green. it is almost a neutral without being either darkening the room or being light and hard to take care of. I have kept my sofa which is squash colored and they look fine together I think. my design request would be you need a tall size of this chair. the chair is low to the ground and the chair ends behind the shoulders of a tall person. make the back a little longer and have the base be adjustable, like many of your other chairs, and then it would be a 5.
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
