Long live the Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman

A revered icon of mid century design and feat of unparalleled craftsmanship and comfort, the Eames Lounge and Ottoman, continues to impress with new and contemporary colourways.

Long live the Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman

65 years ago, an icon of American furniture design was born. With an unmistakable silhouette and timeless finishes, the Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman set remains the pinnacle of seating today.

When Ray and Charles Eames were designing the Eames set, they were inspired by the notion that furniture serves both our aesthetics and our bodies. So, they drew from the “warm, receptive look of a well-used first baseman’s mitt.”

The chair envelops its occupant in a soft embrace, providing the same sort of refuge Charles and Ray envisioned their stylish and welcoming home to be. This legacy has stood the test of time, with the Eames set remaining sought-after by creatives, professionals, families and design enthusiasts alike.

To celebrate the beloved pieces’ 65th anniversary, Herman Miller are offering a new range of finishes in addition to the longstanding range. Cozy Flamiber bouclé brings a new level of comfort to the chair and ottoman’s interior, with 6 vibrant colourways available in the spirit of Ray and Charles’ eclectic taste. An additional shell finish of white oak wood veneer gives this landmark design a lighter finish, perfect for enhancing bright and open spaces.

Charles once noted that the details of designs are much more than merely mundane details – rather, “they make the product”. It is this very attitude that underpins the longevity of the Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman. With details of finishes remaining versatile and refined, the Eames set is truly iconic. There was nothing like these pieces at their inception in 1965, and the design’s creativity continues to endure unmatched.

To bring an authentic and universally revered piece of design history into your space, Herman Miller offers both the classic and latest range of finishes.
