This is the large version of the Eames Lounge Chair & Ottoman by Charles & Ray Eames from Vitra. The original went into production in 1956 but since then the average human has grown an extra 10cm. In conjunction with the Eames office Vitra has adjusted the dimensions of the Lounge Chair to enable taller people to experience its exceptional comfort. This has been achieved by carefully extending the proportions of the seat and back shells in such a way that the overall appearance of the Eames Lounge Chair seems hardly to have changed at all. The ottoman dimensions remain the same as the original.
There are a number of variations to the Lounge Chair design. The shell veneer is in cherry, Santos Palisander (rosewood) or white pigmented walnut with leathers available in specially selected shades to suit the wood tones. The base is black with polished aluminium detail on the horizontal surfaces.
Whilst there are a number of inferior copies of the Lounge Chair available online at a fraction of the price, often labelled as 'Eames inspired', true connoisseurs will appreciate the quality of this original. The Lounge Chair is a bespoke piece of furniture which will give many years of lounging pleasure. Besides anything else it's a truly comfortable chair - anyone who already own one of these will vouch for this.
