Husband and wife team Charles and Ray Eames are considered amongst the most influential designers of the 20th century, making groundbreaking contributions in many fields, not the least being furniture design. Their style was sleek and modern, while at the same time being playful and ever functional. They have left us with an impressive legacy, and a long list of iconic and timeless designs still popular today.
This replica Eames Lounge + Ottoman is a tribute to Charles and Ray Eames' original, which was inspired by their desire to create a modern version of the English club chair. An icon of American design, their lounge made use of the moulded plywood technology that they had pioneered in the 1940s, and their vision was to create "the warm, receptive look of a well-used first baseman's mitt." Our replica is made from a moulded plywood shell, in the same thickness and curve as the original design. The wooden shell consists of 7 layers of birch plywood, with a palisander wood veneer. The cushions feature durable and comfortable injection moulded polyurethane foam, upholstered in premium aniline leather, and true to the original, can each be removed. This elegant chair sits atop a black lacquered aluminium swivel base, with the ottoman attached to a non-swiveling version. Supremely stylish and universally recognised, this lounge would bring ultimate comfort and a regal sophistication to any home.
Please note that colours may vary slightly to what is pictured here. Variations in colour and grain are due to the natural characteristics of leather and wood, and contribute to the uniqueness of each piece.
