"Recognizing the need is the primary condition for design." -Charles Eames

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 hand-craftsmanship. 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 leather suggest old-fashioned luxury translated into modern forms, setting an enduring standard for comfort and elegance.

Perfect for today's lighter, airy interiors, the Eames Lounge chair and ottoman are being offered in an all-white version—pearl MCL Leather and a white ash shell that complements the white leather. The ash veneer is finished with a process that arrests the wood in its natural, "freshly cut" state—a creamy white that will not turn yellow or golden over time.

The metal components of the chair have been updated to a white finish that highlights the polished aluminum accents on the base. Together with the new premium leather in pearl, the chair takes on a fresh, lighter look that is sure to be a complement to contemporary interiors.

All pieces are hand assembled with a built-in swivel mechanism.

Herman Miller was a West Michigan businessman who helped his son in law buy the Michigan Star Furniture Company in 1923. De Pree had been working at the company since he was hired in 1909 as a clerk. De Pree knew his father in law as 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 & Ray Eames the company produced legendary classics of industrial design.
