THE EAMES LOUNGE AND OTTOMAN
THE ULTIMATE MID-CENTURY ACCESSORY
No bachelor pad is complete without one and martinis are said to be tastier when sipped from its butter soft leather curves. The Eames Lounge and Ottoman released in 1956 by design duo Charles and Ray Eames is a quintessential Mid-Century masterpiece of moulded ply-wood and leather. Its iconic design is not only an aesthetic delight with four identically proportioned segments and flawless exterior surfacing due to unseen engineering and seemless assembly, but also designed for true comfort offering a high level of lumbar support. Since its introduction in the 60′s, the Charles Eames Lounge Chair has been in continuous hand crafted production by Herman Miller and is available today in a variety of finishes including Santos Palisander, Oiled Walnut, Natural Cherry, and a strikingly modern White Ash. The Eames Lounge and Ottoman can be purchased and customized by the official American manufacturerHerman Miller or at authorized dealers including Jules Seltzer in Los Angeles. Prices start at $4,495.
Charles and Ray Eames’ legendary contribution to film, architecture, and furniture was always guided by the principal that “Design is the appropriate combination of materials in order to solve a problem”. Never too much, never too little. And although nothing exemplifies this principle more than the lounge and ottoman pair, the Eames were responsible for many familiar classics which now figure into a global design vernacular.
