We have one Eames Lounge Chair in stock in the new dimensions in Santos Palisander wood, black premium leather and the base in polished aluminium with black sides. It was designed in 1956 by Charles and Ray Eames, and is now manufactured by Vitra. It is now a classic of modern contemporary design that people wish to own for many years, and gain tremendous pleasure from handing it down to future generations. The design of the chair was inspired by the traditional English club chair, and by a soft, comfortable baseball glove. Due to the incredible quality of materials and craftsmanship, the Eames Lounge Chair is hard wearing and still looks like new after years of use in the family home.
Santos Palisander is the closest to the original design, when the Eameses specified a Brazilian rosewood shell and black leather. The Lounge Chair is now also available in a larger version that allows maximum comfort for taller people.
COPY WATCH: This is one of the most copied chair designs of modern times! We only sell genuine, authorised original Eames furniture manufactured by Vitra, under license to the Eames family.

Charles and Ray Eames understood design to be a continuous process one that did not end when production began. The main goal of the Eames Lounge Chair was to offer users maximum comfort. Since the Lounge Chair went into production more than 50 years ago, the height of the average human depending on region has increased by as much as 10 cm. To enable larger people to experience exceptional comfort when sitting, Vitra has in coordination with the Eames Office adjusted the dimensions of the Lounge Chair. In doing so, the proportions of the seat and back shells were carefully extended in such a way that the overall visual appearance of the Eames Lounge Chair seems to hardly have changed at all.
