Born in St. Louis, Missouri, Charles Eames grew up in America's industrial heartland. As a young man he worked for engineers and manufacturers, anticipating his lifelong interest in mechanics and the complex working of things. Ray Kaiser, born in Sacramento, California, demonstrated her fascination with the abstract qualities of ordinary objects early on. She spent her formative years in the orbit of New York's modern art movements and participated in the first wave of American-born abstract artists.

The couple married in 1941 and moved from Michigan, where they had met at the Cranbrook Academy of Art, to Los Angeles and established an office together. With a grand sense of adventure, they turned their curiosity and boundless enthusiasm into creations that established them as a truly great husband-and-wife design team. Their unique synergy led to a whole new look in furniture. Modern and minimal. Playful and functional. Sleek, sophisticated, and beautifully simple. That was and is the Eames Look.

Classic Eames Lounge Chair & Ottoman

The Classic Eames Lounge Chair & Ottoman in Black Leather & Santos Palisander against a white background.

The first Eames Lounger was designed as a gift for Billy Wilder, the director of the classic film 'Some Like It Hot.' Making its public debut in 1956 on Arlene Francis's Home show, Charles Eames said his goal for the chair was that it be, "A special refuge from the strains of modern living."

The Vitra-made chair is a contemporary and luxurious interpretation of the traditional gentlemen’s club chair with a matching ottoman. It combines modern sculptural lines of wood veneer shells and removable supple natural leather upholstery to create a design classic that is comfortable and visually stylish.

It has a die-cast aluminium frame on shock mounts for flexible movement, a quirky signature five-arm base and functional swivel action, available in countless shades and finishes, each carrying the Eameses' signature as a mark of authenticity.
