Celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2006, the Eames lounge
chair and ottoman are considered among the most significant
and collectible furniture designs of the 20th century. The
rich veneer and supple leather suggest old-fashioned luxury
translated into modern forms, setting an enduring standard
for comfort and elegance. In addition, the lounge chair and
ottoman are now available in a veneer called santos
palisander that captures the original's unique look.
The veneer of an Eames lounge chair and ottoman is cut from a
single log and laid together in sequence so that grains are
matched; the edges and surfaces are hand finished.
