In continuous production since its introduction in 1956, the Eames Lounge Chair is widely considered one of the most significant designs of the 20th century. It was the culmination of Charles and Ray Eameses’ efforts to create a club chair using the moulded plywood technology that they pioneered in the ’40s. In Charles Eames’ words, the vision was a chair with the “warm, receptive look of a well-used first baseman’s mitt.”

A timeless design, it’s constructed to last lifetimes: Entirely hand-assembled, all parts are replaceable by Herman Miller. The seat is balanced on a five-star, die-cast aluminum base with adjustable stainless steel glides for uneven floors.

Herman Miller now offers this classic in a number of finishes:

  • Available in Spinneybeck® Vicenza leather – a high-quality, Greenguard-certified leather with a breathable finish that protects against UV rays and spills.
  • MCL Leather – Similar to the aniline leather used on the original Lounge Chair and Ottoman, this option will develop a rich patina over time.
  • Edelman All-Grain Leather is a GreenGuard Certified European full-grain leather with a soft texture and durability for use in high-traffic areas.

This original is an authentic, fully licensed product of Herman Miller®, Inc. Eames is a licensed trademark of Herman Miller.
