About The Designer
Charles and Ray Eames
The Eameses’ modern approach to mid-century design has not only endured for more than 50 years, but it has also left one of the most significant legacies in furniture designs of all mankind. Their work comprises instantly recognizable masterpieces that remain fresh to this day.
Charles and Ray Eames were both well-known architects from the University of Washington. Famous for their work for Hollywood movies, the architect duo created a new philosophy in design: the banana leaf parable. The banana leaf transforms and adapts into something very ornate. This philosophy will be palpable in their remarkable designs in furniture that were all usable and had an outstanding aesthetic value.
One of our best selling pieces, the mid-century lounge chair and ottoman, as well as the Eames Office Chair replicas, pay homage to the Eameses work, with no parallel ever since its introduction in 1956. There is still nothing to equal the mid-century lounge chair and it probably never will. The Eameses work brought special refuges from the strains of modern living to homes, offices, and interiors around the globe.
