Herman Miller Eames® Lounge Chair and Ottoman
Who doesn't recognize the Eames lounge chair and ottoman? These pieces live in museums like MOMA in New York and the Art Institute of Chicago, in stylish interiors around the world, and as a tattoo on a devotee's arm. They have been the subject of documentaries and books. The quintessential modern classic, the set is now available in an expanded range of materials, to suit any interior and every taste.
Charles and Ray Eames made the lounge chair and ottoman as a gift for their friend Billy Wilder, the director of "Some Like It Hot" and "Sunset Blvd." When we began manufacturing the set in 1956, we maintained as much of the hand-craftsmanship as was possible with mass production. Throughout the Eames/Nelson era, we came closer than anyone else to incorporating craft ideals into the mass production of furniture.
