Eames Lounge chair and ottoman

Supplier:
Matisse

Who doesn’t recognise the Eames lounge chair and ottoman? These pieces live in museums like MOMA in New York and the Art Institute of Chicago, in stylish interiors around the world, and as a tattoo on a devotee’s arm. They have been the subject of documentaries and books. The quintessential modern classic, the set is now available in an expanded range of materials, to suit any interior and every taste.

When the set was introduced in 1956, there was nothing else like it. The design was completely new. It has not only endured for more than 50 years—it has become one of the significant furniture designs of the 20th century. Instantly recognizable. And still fresh.

Two different varieties of high-quality leather. Two different finishes available for the wood veneers. The same high level of quality and workmanship, regardless of the choices you make.

The comfort built into the Eames lounge chair and ottoman helps explain its enduring popularity, compared to other chairs that are also considered icons of 20th century design.

Like all classics, the chair and ottoman just get better with age. Both are hand-assembled with great attention paid to the details. Shells are 7-ply veneers. Cushions are individually upholstered and replaceable; back cushions are interchangeable. The back braces and bases—of both the chair and ottoman—are die-cast aluminum. The chair base has a built-in swivel mechanism. Shock mounts are resilient natural rubber. Stainless steel glides are adjustable.

In keeping with our environmental commitment, we replaced the endangered Brazilian rosewood used on the original chair with santos palisander, a richly grained veneer that looks like the original rosewood but is a sustainable product. All veneers used on the chair and ottoman are from sustainably managed forests.

Perfect for today’s lighter, airy interiors, the chair and ottoman are 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.
