Charles and Ray Eames had ideas about making a better world, one in which things were designed to bring greater pleasure to our lives. Their iconic Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman (1956) began with a desire to create a chair with “the warm, receptive look of a well-used first baseman’s mitt. ” The result has become the consummate lounge set. In continuous production since its introduction, this set is widely considered one of the most significant designs of the 20th century. Combining soft, inviting leather with the sleek form of molded wood, the Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman is the culmination of the Eameses’ efforts to create a club chair using the molded plywood technology they pioneered in the ’40s. Even today, each piece is assembled by hand to ensure the highest level of quality and craftsmanship, and you’ll be pleased to discover that this set gets even better with use and age. The configuration of this set is a registered trademark, and this is the authentic Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman by Herman Miller. Made in U. S. A. Herman Miller and the Eames Office, which continues to be run by the Eames family, developed this taller size in response to the fact that the average height of people worldwide has increased about an inch since this chair was designed. The differences between the two sizes are subtle to the eye, but for taller individuals, they make the difference between “I love Eames” and “Eames loves me. ”
