Classic Design for Modern Living – The Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman

Words Thida Sachathep

With a universally recognised form, the Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman continues to bring comfort, style and timelessness into the home.

Introduced in 1956 by Charles and Ray Eames, as a modern take on a 19th century English club chair, the Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman is one of the most significant designs of the 21st century. Displayed in museums around the world, the undulating forms and voluptuous luxury provide “a special refuge from the strains of modern living.”

Combining masterful craftsmanship with exceptional manufacturing, Charles and Ray Eames wanted to design a chair that welcomed relaxation to every sitter. The Eames Lounge Chair is deliberately designed to a tilt to ensure that weight is distributed evenly throughout the chair. The sculptural form of the Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman is emphasised by the innovative moulding of the hardwood and the voluptuous leather cushion, which is designed to mature over time. “The leather cushions do have built-in wrinkles to start with, but that is a clue that spells comfort to come, like the warm, receptive look of a well-used first baseman’s mitt,” explains Charles Eames. Designed for longevity, without forsaking style, each Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman has its own unique personality.

The iconic Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman is available nation-wide exclusively from Living Edge. Now is the perfect time to own a piece of design history, with Living Edge providing a special offer on the Eames until the end of June.
