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’. More recently, the Eames set has appeared on the hit 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.
Thinking of purchasing one is these fabulous designs? When purchasing the Eames chair it is essential that you order your reproduction 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 may be tempting to go for the cheaper option, the Eames chair should be created with the highest quality leather and thick cushion made from foam or down feathers, therefore it should not be a cheap furniture piece.
Ideally you should go and see the chair in the flesh before you make your purchase. However, if you are selecting your chair from a well established online supplier, they should be able to send you a wide range of photographs taken at different angles, enabling you to determine the quality of the design.
Once you have purchased your chair you should take some time to look after your new furniture piece. This will enable the chair to retain its high 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.
