The now iconic Eames lounge chair and ottoman were designed by husband-and-wife duo Charles and Ray Eames and first released by the Herman Miller company in 1956. This chair was intended to be luxurious and inviting, providing “a special refuge from the strains of modern living.” Today the lounge chair and ottoman are considered icons of mid-century modern design and remain symbols of luxurious comfort around the world. That the design is still produced today is a testament to its popularity and lasting appeal. Browse the range of Charles Eames lounge chairs listed here at Vinterior to discover lavish modern seating that will undoubtedly make a statement in your living room.

Why choose Charles Eames lounge chairs?

A magazine article on modern design famously claimed that this chair “sank the sitter into a voluptuous luxury that few mortals since Nero have known.” Said to be inspired by the nineteenth-century English club chair, this high-end seat is expertly crafted from moulded plywood and quality leather upholstery.

Today the Eames lounge chair is considered a classic in the history of modern furniture and is a stunning luxury item for any cool, sophisticated interior. Infinitely more elegant, modern and comfortable than the traditional club chair, this seat is sleek, featuring a curved plywood headrest, backrest and seat which have been heated, bent and shaped before being attached to the smooth aluminium spines and base.

Eames chairs with leather armrests

Cushioned leather armrests add a sumptuous finishing touch, ensuring that the chair provides exceptional comfort. The end result is the embodiment of Charles Eames’ original vision: a chair with “the warm, receptive look of a well-used first baseman’s mitt.”

This chair is a must-have item for fans of mid-century modern design, but it can also become a lavish statement piece within any style of room, as it is the kind of visually appealing piece of furniture that will harmonise with any style of décor.

We love new, too

As well as offering authentic vintage Eames furniture, we also feature numerous modern styles of the much-loved lounge chair and ottoman. The iconic chair is still produced today by Herman Miller and Vitra, who have been using the same manufacturing methods since the 1950s to provide an authentic, handcrafted item that showcases the original design and offers the same level of exceptional comfort. In addition to producing the chair with classic dimensions, a new, larger version has been developed so that taller people can enjoy the luxurious feel of the Eames lounge chair.

In consultation with the Eames brand, new combinations of leather upholstery colours, wood veneers and bases have also been made available to create a wider range of stylish, individual pieces that retain the same sense of character and quality craftsmanship.
