Description

A modern masterpiece.

Charles and Ray Eames had ideas about making a better world, one in which things were designed to bring greater pleasure to our lives. Their iconic Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman (1956) began with a desire to create a chair with “the warm, receptive look of a well-used first baseman’s mitt.” The result embodies what it really means to lounge. In continuous production since its introduction, this set is widely considered one of the most significant designs of the 20th century. Combining soft, inviting leather or mohair with the sleek form of molded wood, the Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman is the culmination of the Eameses’ efforts to create a club chair using the molded plywood technology they pioneered in the ’40s. Even today, each piece is assembled by hand to ensure the highest level of quality and craftsmanship, and you’ll be pleased to discover the set gets even better with use and age. This is the authentic Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman by Herman Miller. Made in U.S.A.



Available in standard or tall.

Herman Miller and the Eames Office, still run by the Eames family, developed the taller size in response to the fact that the average height of people worldwide has increased about an inch since the chair was designed. The variations in size are subtle to the eye, but for taller individuals, they make the difference between “I love Eames” and “Eames loves me.”

  • A modern classic in continuous production since 1956.
  • Stamped with a medallion on underside of chair to signify authenticity.
  • Chair set on swivel base, ottoman on fixed base.
  • 5-year warranty.

Design is for living. That maxim shaped a widespread shift in design during the 1940s and 1950s. It was a revolution of form, an exciting visual language that signaled a new age and a fresh start – and two of its prime movers were Charles and Ray Eames. The Eameses were a husband-and-wife team whose unique synergy led to a whole ...

Herman Miller Is The Best Eames
This name brand Herman Miller $7,000 Eames chair was far better than the $700 Eames knock-off that I bought. Even though it's exactly the same wood, finish, and Italian aniline leather, the thought that it has the genuine Herman Miller seal of approval makes it so totally worthwhile spending another $6,300 for a chair. I feel so much better and spiritually complete knowing in my heart that it's name brand, even if it has the same build quality and comfort.

Not for the elderly
Was a terrific chair at age 50. But at age 80 it is
difficult to exit due to lack of agility. Herman Miller
refuses to recognize this problem and provides no
solutions.

The best gamin chair! The best looking chair! Enough said

The nicest thing I own
I felt a little guilty spending this much on myself until I arrived and I sat in it for the first time. As I sank into the leather's embrace, it reminded me that life is to be lived. Every time I sit in it, I exhale and relax. It is priceless.

Best Lounge Chair Ever
Top notch quality and comfort! I was shocked at how little packaging it came in. On the one hand, good the environment. On the other hand, seemed a bit risky they way it was shipped, but I inspected it carefully and it was in perfect condition.

A legend in my house
They may seem somewhat common and they may have inspired knock-offs and replicas to beat the band, but the real deal is every bit as lovely as its iconic status would suggest. I've always wanted one and now I have one!

Wow!
Not only are the chair and ottoman beautiful, but the chair is the most comfortable I have ever sat in. The lumbar support is wonderful--I can totally relax my back. Thank you!

THE CONSUMMATE ICON
Not sure what can be added to the review of this chair and ottoman; only, that if I had but one item of furniture, this is the item that I would have. After owning a 1960’s iteration of this chair, I chose to purchase a new one - heaven :-)

WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENCES IN THE LEATHERS?
MIMI MAZER on Nov 13, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi Melissa,

The main two differences in leathers on the Eames Lounge Chair are different textures and smoothness, the Vicenza leather offers a smoother feel and not as deep grains. While the All Grain leather is thicker with deeper grains you can feel easier, you may always request free swatches of all the different leathers we offer for the Eames Chair on our website.
