Eames® Lounge Chair and Ottoman
Description

An icon of modern furniture design and an object in MoMA’s collection, the Eames® Lounge Chair and Ottoman was conceived by Charles and Ray Eames in 1956. Charles Eames' goal was to build a chair with "the warm receptive look of a well-used first baseman's mitt." (Other anecdotes mention that Eames wanted the look and feel of a “gentleman’s club chair.”) Marrying beauty and comfort, the Eames® Lounge Chair and Ottoman is a work of art designed for everyday living.

At MoMA Design Store, we offer the Eames® Lounge Chair and Ottoman in an exclusive cherry wood veneer with black leather upholstery. We also offer one in walnut wood with black leather and brown MCL leather.

The Eames®  Lounge Chair and Ottoman has been produced in the USA for over 50 years by the original manufacturer, Herman Miller® . This authorized version is composed of three separate curved 7-ply veneer shells: the head rest, the back support and the seat, all topped with upholstered leather cushions. The leather is highly durable medium-grain leather that will develop a softened patina over time. When first conceived, their modest desire was, according to Charles, to create a chair with “the warm, receptive look of a well-used first baseman’s mitt”—translating the soft, comfortable look and feel of a genuine leather baseball glove that has been properly broken in. The seat pivots on a five-pronged base, moving effortlessly with one’s body movements.

The Eames® Lounge Chair measures 32.75h x 32.75w x 32.75"d while the Ottoman measures 17h x 26w x 21.5"d. The chair’s weight limit is 300lbs.

Why We Chose This
An object in MoMA's collection, the original Lounge Chair and Ottoman, designed by Charles and Ray Eames in 1956, was made of molded rosewood. When the Museum acquired the chair in 1960 from the Herman Miller Furniture Company, the curators noted, "This is one of the very few modern designs intended specifically to give maximum comfort for people of all sizes and shapes."
