About the Designer
Charles & Ray Eames Charles & Ray Eames United States 

Charles Ormond Eames, Jr (1907–1978) and Bernice Alexandra "Ray" (née Kaiser) Eames (1912–1988) were American designers, who worked in and made major contributions to modern architecture and furniture. They also worked in the fields of industrial and graphic design, fine art and film.

Celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2006, the Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman are considered among the most significant and collectible furniture designs of the 20th century. The rich veneer and supple leather suggest old-fashioned luxury translated into modern forms, setting an enduring standard for comfort and elegance. As popular as it's become, the lounge chair remains grounded in the details that continue to distinguish it. The 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, and It's part of the permanent collection of New York's Museum of Modern Art. Charles Eames said his goal for the chair was the ''warm, receptive look of a well-used first baseman's mitt.'' Every one is a special refuge from the strains of modern living. The first lounge chair and ottoman, produced in 1956, made its public debut on Arlene Francis' Home show, which later became the Today show.

Classic, comfortable and timeless

 from Dallas, TX– Verified Buyer– Top 500 Reviewer

The Herman Miller Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman is such a classic set. I ordered the Santos Palisander in Royal Hide Leather (Gold color) for a client, and it is just stunning. The description is not clear, but the Santos Palisander does not require the periodic oiling that the Oiled Santos Palisander does -- so if you want low maintenance, go with the Santos Palisander. The wood grain is just as beautiful. Paired with Gandia Blasco circulos rug, the gold colors complement very well -- and it's classic mid century modern.
