According to Charles Eames, this chair was designed to emit the “warm receptive look of a well-used first baseman’s mitt. It was designed as a special refuge from the strains of modern living. The iconic Eames chair is three curved plywood shells: a headrest, backrest and seat. Two metal spines set on spacers supporting the reclined rosewood-veneered back and sumptuous leather cushions (designed by Alexander Girard). “ *

We will be restoring this iconic 1970’s Eames Lounge chair and ottoman (670/671) in Rosewood and yellow leather by removing the old worn shock mounts and replacing with all new shock mounts. The rosewood shells will be in excellent newly refinished condition once we are finished. The yellow leather has a beautiful and perfect patina, we will be repairing old cushions.

In 1961, Playboy sang the chair’s praises by saying the Eames Lounge Chair and ottoman “sank the sitter into a voluptuous luxury”. Give this chair a try and you will understand why so many hail it as the world’s most comfortable chair. A piece of history and luxury, an icon of design.
