The Eames Lounge Chair & Ottoman are considered among the most significant & collectible furniture designs of the 20th century. The rich veneer & supple leather suggest old-fashioned luxury translated into modern forms, setting an enduring standard for comfort & elegance. The chair has been on display for decades at museums like the Art Institute of Chicago, & New York's Museum of Modern Art, & the reams of scholarly, critical, & fan writing & correspondence is enormous. It's truly one of the most famous & well-respected chairs ever built, & now it can be yours through Smart Furniture & Herman Miller (Herman Miller secured the rights to sell Eames furniture, & there isn't a more fine or trustworthy furniture company out there). The Eames Lounge Chair & Ottoman can also be purchased together. The Eames Ottoman's shell is one molded, curved plywood shell. The shell is made w/ several thin layers of wood veneer adhered together & shaped under heat & pressure. The plywood & cushions are the shaped the same (i.e., composed of two curved forms interlocking to form a solid mass). Charles Eames' innovation in material selection is also apparent in the ottoman cushion. Instead of stapled or nailed upholstery, the cushion is sewn w/ a zipper around the outer edge that connects it to a stiff backing. The backing is adhered to the shell w/ hidden clips & rings. This design allows the visible veneer to be unmarred by screws or bolts. The Eames Ottoman has glides that are threaded so that the chair may remain level. There's good reason that Herman Miller has stayed true to the same design that was thought up so long a read more
