The Eames Lounge Chair - available here in a range of wood shell options and upholstered in Nubia - is the epitome of a furniture design classic. Manufactured under license from the Eames estate by Vitra, this is one of the most famous original designs by Charles & Ray Eames. Created in 1956, the Chair was originally designed as a modern interpretation of the traditional club chair. 

Ultimate comfort was one of Charles & Ray's primary goals when developing the lounge chair. Their quest for a soft, pleasant sensation led them to experiment with a range of fabric and leather upholstery options. Following the 1956 launch, a fabric-covered version was available for just a short period and only a small number were ever produced. 

In 2023 Vitra relaunced the Eames Lounge Chair with a fabric cover. Nubia is a soft boucle textile with a lively appearance, which gives the furniture icon a warm, cosy look.

Please note: This listing is for the Lounge Chair only. The Lounge Chair & Matching Ottoman is available here.
