Description

Detailed product description taken from Herman Miller website:  

The Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman have their origin in Charles and Ray’s investigations into molding plywood and a desire to improve upon a familiar fixture in many living rooms: the lounge chair.  Today, these pieces not only live in museums, but continue to offer comfort and style to interiors everywhere.  When the set was introduced in 1956, there was nothing like it, and there is still nothing to equal it.  The Eameses’ modern take on a 19th century club chair has not only endured for more than 50 years, it has become one of the most significant furniture designs of the 20th century—instantly recognizable and enduringly fresh.
Like all classics, the chair and ottoman get better with age. Both are hand-assembled with great attention paid to the details.  Shells are 7-ply veneers.  Cushions are individually upholstered and replaceable.  The back braces and bases—of both the chair and ottoman—are die-cast aluminum.  The chair base has a built-in swivel mechanism.  Shock mounts are resilient natural rubber.  Stainless steel glides are adjustable.
The comfort and support built into the Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman help explain their enduring popularity.  A dynamic blend of hand-craftsmanship and mass production techniques makes this possible.
