The Vitra Eames Lounge Chair is a design classic that will remain timeless. Designed by Charles and Ray Eames for the Herman Miller furniture company and manufactured under licence by Vitra since 1957. The Lounge Chair & Ottoman are ideal for both residential and contract interiors, adding a touch of class to the room.

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.

Vitra have recently produced a new version with increased dimensions making it more comfortable for the taller generation of today. The 'Classic' chair is the original dimensions whilst the 'Large' version has a slightly higher back rest and deeper seat. There are four finishes of shell with the choice of a completely polished base or a polished with black sides base.
