Eames Lounge Chair Classic & Ottoman - Replica

The Lounge Chair Classic by Charles E. was first featured on NBC’s ‘Home’ show broadcast in 1956, and it has been in popular demand ever since. The blend between outstanding comfort and modernist forms makes up the receptive, yet sophisticated look of the design. The chair was E.'s first product targeting the high-end market with a design that proved its timeless value. As a piece of art, the Lounge Chair is part of the permanent collection of the New York Museum of Modern Art.

We produce the seats of the Lounge Chair Classic and Ottoman with several layers of moulded plywood, coated with laminated wood shells and upholstered in either pony hair or classic or premium leather in a variety of colours, combined with a choice of high-quality wood. The frame has a polished finish and can optionally be supplied in black lacquer. The chair and ottoman base are produced in aluminium.

About the Designer

Charles Eames

Charles Eames

Considered as one of the most influential designers of the 20th century, Charles E. was born in St Louis, Missouri. Perhaps decorated as the finest American designer of his generation, Charles E. was heavily influenced by his uncle’s workings, the great architect William S. Eames.

Despite a healthy education studying architecture at Washington University in St. Louis, Eames best began to put his ideas into motion whilst working as a labourer at the Laclede Steel Company in the town of his birth. Here, he received first-hand knowledge and experience in engineering, drawing and architecture, learning the moulding and treatment techniques he would later become famous for.

Both Charles E. and his wife Ray are still heavily celebrated on an international scale, especially for their work in the field of modern furniture. Both collaborated on numerous projects, earning them the AIA Twenty-five Year Award in 1977 and the prestigious Royal Gold Medal Award in 1979, a year after Charles passed away. Their work is still showcased at MoMA in New York, whilst in 1985 IDSA accredited Eames as "The Most Influential Designer of the 20th Century".
