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 ...

Exceeds Expectations
One of my goals was always to own one as one as my grandpa had one growing up. Sitting in it alone is an experience that just takes you away. You are just awestruck at its design as it sticks out and feels like a Heisman Trophy is in your living room.

Happy Customer
Have had the chair for a little over two weeks and love it. Currently enjoying the NFL Championship. I am 6’3” and the tall fits perfectly. So odd to own a functional work of art that probably will outlive me!

my new chair
when i was ordering the chair i was thinking maybe i should get the tall, but i'm only a little over 6', i don't shop at the big and tall shop. unfortunately the regular sized chair is a little too small. with my tailbone against the seat back, l'm looking at the ceiling while using the headrest. what would be involved in moving to the tall? thanks

Some things are worth the price.
I’ve wanted this chair for years and could finally afford to buy one. It’s the most expensive piece of furniture I own but some things are worth the price. A timeless classic. A work of art. And a damn comfortable chair. I had researched extensively and knew I wanted the real deal vs a knockoff. I also wanted it in black leather. But on the day I went to buy it DWR had a version in Mohair. To my surprise I loved it. So I took another week to think about it and ultimately decided on the mohair. So glad I did. It’s warm and inviting and gorgeous. If you’re reading this you most likely want one. Take the plunge!

Forty two years later
My girl friend and I were very impressed with this chair when it was designed in 1962. She and I both coveted it. I am now a happy owner and still love the chair. My hats off to the designer and Herman Miller. Well done.

I saved up for my chair. When I turned 50, I knew I had to have the best lounge chair available.

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.

Great for all ages
Our first family Eames Lounge chair is going on 50 years old. It was used by Grandpa, and then until recently, by Grandma until she passed at age 89. It has been given to us now and looks a great as it did way back when. It is a classic. Our two year old daughter already loves

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.
