If you are looking for a comfortable yet stylish place to sit back, put your feet up and read a good book, look no further than the Eames lounge chair and ottoman. The Eameses were known for experimenting with new materials and building techniques and employed a molded plywood frame with the lounge chair. Essentially, several thin layers of wood where glued together under heat and pressure to form the curved shells that form the backbone of the chair. Embellished with walnut wood veneer and soft, Italian black leather upholstery, this modern classic furniture icon is at once inviting and sophisticated. Set atop a five-pronged swiveling base, this classic lounge chair features armrests on each side and is composed of three separate cushions with the wood veneer frame attached to each other by metal rods. The ottoman is also composed of a walnut veneered wood frame with a plush leather-upholstered cushion to rest your tired feet. The base, which also swivels, matches the base of the chair, albeit with four prongs instead of five. While both the chair and ottoman swivel, they are stationary for added stability. This lounge chair, designed by modern furniture designers Charles and Ray Eames in 1956, became so popular that it is still featured in New York’s famed Museum of Modern Art as an icon of modern classic furniture design.
Husband and wife team Charles and Ray Eames are among the foremost modern classic furniture designers of the 20th century. Married in 1941, the couple moved to California and established a design studio in Venice. Over the next four decades, the couple tackled modern furniture design, architecture, fine art and filmmaking together, designing their own home in the Pacific Palisades in 1946, which still stands to this day and is a California historical landmark.
