The Eames chair has worldwide popularity. Designed by husband and wife team Charles and Ray Eames in 1956, this stylish, iconic chair was created with high quality leather for ultimate comfort and a sleek finish. Wooden frames with ash or beach veneer, adds to the luxurious, stylish design that is perfect for all office and lounge areas.

Shortly after the chair was designed, Charles and Ray created the matching ottoman for director Billy Wilder, who used the furniture piece in the film ‘Some Like It Hot’. The chair is still seen in TV and cinema today and has recently featured in the hit US TV series Gossip Girl. The creation is timeless and can blend in with any home and office styles or decor. The Eames chair is often seem paired with a stylish chrome floor or desk lamp and matching bookcase or desk, representing the sophisticated work area the chair can create.

The worldwide popularity of the Eames lounge chair has led the design to feature in top art museums such as the MOMA in New York and the Art Institute of Chicago. It’s fair to say there aren’t many lounge chairs that have a high profile like the Eames chair. The artistic creation has been the subject of many documentaries and books since its debut in the late 50s and there are now many reproductions offering several different colours and styles of the design.

If you are considering purchasing an Eames lounge chair reproduction, it is essential that you purchase the piece from a well established, reliable supplier. There are many reproductions, particularly over the internet that appear to look like the original high quality design, however when people have received the chair it has arrived looking worn and cheap. Although it is always tempting to go for the cheaper option, the Eames chair should be created with the highest quality materials, including luxury leather and foam or down feather and should not be a cheap or knock off piece of furniture.

Ideally you should go and see the chair in the flesh before you make your purchase. However, purchasing online can be a completely safe and reliable option, providing you ask for a wide range of photographs of the chair, enabling you to determine the quality of your chosen design.

Once you have purchased your chair you should take some time to look after your new furniture piece. This will allow your chair to retain its quality for years on end. Simple cleaning such as dusting the leather seat and arms with a soft, dry cloth and applying a pre-softened paste wax to the legs of your chair will remove any marks and keep it looking brand new.
