Eames Lounge and Ottoman by Herman Miller

Designed and built by the genius duo of Charles and Ray Eames, the Eames Lounge Chair is the gold standard of the lounge chair.



Whether you're looking for your home or office, the Herman Miller Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman offer everything you want in a lounge chair - iconic style, incredible comfort, and the durability to last for years. 


Design Story

When they were conceptualizing the chair, Charles explained that the designers wanted it to have the “warm, receptive look of a well-used first baseman's mitt.” The Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman debuted on national television in 1956. Charles and Ray Eames appeared on the NBC television network Home show hosted by Arlene Francis. Stardom ensued for both design and designers. Yet, as popular as the lounge chair and ottoman have become, they remain grounded in the handcrafted details that continue to distinguish this classic, authentic design.

Part of the permanent collections at New York’s MoMA and the Art Institute of Chicago, the chair and ottoman have been the subject of documentary films and books; they were the sole subject of a museum show at the Museum of Arts & Design in New York. They are featured prominently in television series and stylish movie interiors. Although the word “icon” is overused, it's exactly the right word in describing the Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman.

What is the difference between Prone Leather and standard leather?

Prone is a premium full-grain leather from Maharam, produced in a boutique tannery in Northern Italy. Prone is minimally finished to highlight the natural beauty of leather and the inherent quality of superior raw materials. The texture of the grain offers a supple hand, while a light silicone finish lends protection against wear. Prone is GREENGUARD Gold Certified.
