Since 1956, the Eames Lounge Chair has combined ultimate comfort with both materials and workmanship of the highest quality. 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. This 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. An early design by the Eameses featured light coloured leather upholstery. Now, developed in cooperation with the Eames Office, Vitra has introduced a new interpretation of the classic chair. Light coloured leather, polished aluminium base and a light pigmented walnut veneer shell offer a brand new take on the traditional dark leather and wood. You can choose between snow white, clay, and olive Premium leather, snow white Grand leather, or dark sand natural leather.
Please note that VItra's natural leather is a soft and supple aniline leather made of cowhide with an open-pored, natural grain. Natural markings such as scars, insect bites, and neck folds remain visible. They are not defects, but are viewed as features of the leather, an evidence of its genuine premium quality.
The white version of the Eames Lounge chair harmonises perfectly with more modern, light interiors, and contrasts beautifully with classic spaces. The Lounge Chair is now also available in a larger version that allows maximum comfort for taller people.
