You may have seen an Eames Lounge Chair at some time in your life, but you probably didn’t realize how significant a piece it was whenever you did. The distinctive molded plywood and fine leather lounge chair, along with its ottoman, has been considered a mid century modern design icon since it debuted back in 1956.

Creative partners and sweethearts Charles and Ray Eames had a successful career, making significant contributions in furniture design, industrial design and architecture. Being pioneers in making furniture out of molded plywood, the Eames Lounge Chair is undoubtedly their most coveted design.

The Eames chair replica consists of a molded plywood shell with a top veneer. Now, you may choose between walnut wood or palisander wood veneer, leatherette, Aniline leather or Italian leather. The uniquely attached cushions don’t harm the plywood shell, while showcasing  a distinctly worn-out but refined appearance the Eameses were aiming for. With an aluminum base, the Eames Lounge Chair reproduction has a built-in swivel mechanism.
