Charles & Ray's aim for the Lounge chair was to combine utmost comfort using only high-end materials and high-quality finishing. The chair conveys the impression of a well used baseball glove, inviting the user to sit back and relax. The Ottoman provides even further relaxed comfort.

The Ottoman is the same size for both the 'Classic' and 'Large' Lounge Chairs. There are four finishes of shell with the choice of a completely polished base, polished with black sides or completely chromed base.
