Eames® Soft Pad Lounge Chair
Designed by Charles and Ray Eames for Herman Miller®
Sophisticated, refined, with a graceful silhouette. Soft Pad chairs are available in a selection of colors, materials, and bases that allow them to sit well in homes and offices.
It’s uncanny how a chair designed in 1958 as outdoor seating still manages to look both classic and contemporary in twenty-first century interiors. The chairs’ clean, trim lines make them appropriate for all kinds of places, from classic and contemporary homes to elegant offices to hip start-ups.
Never being ones to favor style over substance, Charles and Ray Eames gave both chair designs an innovative suspension that creates a firm, flexible "sitting pocket" that conforms subtly to the body's shape. They created that suspension by stretching a continuous piece of seat-back upholstery tautly between lightweight aluminum side ribs. The foam cushions of Soft Pad chairs will not flatten or clump over time.
