"Who would say that pleasure is not useful?" -Charles Eames

The Eames Lounge & ottoman is now offered upholstered in Maharam Mohair Supreme upholstery, a 100 percent mohair textile. This new upholstery option hugs the creases and folds of the upholstery pattern beautifully and adds a luxurious feel to this iconic design.

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 Eameses in the 1940s. The Eames lounge chair and ottoman are considered among the most significant and collectible furniture designs of the 20th century and are part of the permanent collection of New York's Museum of Modern Art.

Every lounge chair and ottoman manufactured since the original have received the same meticulous handcrafted attention. The rich veneer and supple upholstery suggest old-fashioned luxury translated into modern forms, setting an enduring standard for comfort and elegance. In addition, the lounge chair and ottoman are now available in a veneer called santos palisander, a lustrous veneer that has the same characteristics as the original rosewood, color and grain.

The chair has 6-inch thick urethane foam cushions and rich Mohair Supreme upholstery available in your choice of colors. The wood is harvested exclusively from sustainably managed forests and is available in a variety of finish options. The 5-star base is black-enameled with polished aluminum trim on the walnut, ebony & santos chairs. The White ash version has a 5-star white-enameled base with polished aluminum trim. All pieces are hand assembled with a built-in swivel mechanism.

Eames

Husband and wife team Charles (1907-1978) and Ray (1912-1988) Eames played a major role in the world of modern architecture and furniture, as well as working in industrial and graphic design, fine art, and film. Charles completed two years of study at Washington University in St. Louis. With his design and life partner Ray, he designed prize-winning furniture that expanded upon the wood molding techniques of Alvar Aalto. Ray-Bernice Alexandra Kaiser Eames began as an abstract expressionist painter, having graduated from Bennett Women’s College in Millbrook, NY and later studying under Hans Hoffman while living in New York City. She co-founded the American Abstract Artists and has a painting in the Whitney museum’s permanent collection.
Herman Miller was a West Michigan businessman who helped his son-in-law, D.J. De Pree, buy the Michigan Star Furniture Company in 1923. De Pree had been working at the company, which opened in 1905, since he was hired in 1909 as a clerk. De Pree knew his father-in-law was a man of integrity, so he decided to rename the company after him. By the middle of the 20th century, the name Herman Miller had become synonymous with “modern” furniture. Working with legendary designers George Nelson and Charles and Ray Eames, the company produced pieces that would become classics of industrial design.
