An icon of modern furniture design and an object in MoMA’s collection, the Eames® Lounge Chair and Ottoman was conceived by Charles and Ray Eames in 1956. Charles Eames' goal was to build a chair with "the warm receptive look of a well-used first baseman's mitt." (Other anecdotes mention that Eames wanted the look and feel of a “gentleman’s club chair.”) Marrying beauty and comfort, the Eames® Lounge Chair and Ottoman is a work of art designed for everyday living.

At MoMA Design Store, we offer the Eames® Lounge Chair and Ottoman in an exclusive cherry wood veneer with black MCL leather upholstery. We also offer one in walnut wood with brown MCL leather.

The Eames®  Lounge Chair and Ottoman has been produced in the USA for over 50 years by the original manufacturer, Herman Miller® . This authorized version is made of molded 7-ply veneer and is upholstered in premium full grain MCL leather. The 100% natural leather used for the chair and ottoman is not sanded or pressed, and will soften and patina over time for a luxurious feel. The chair’s leather upholstery is made more durable with a water-based protective coating. Because the coating is light, it does not compromise the leather’s rich texture. Over time, the leather will develop a softened patina, revealing its unique personality. 

The Eames® Lounge Chair measures 32.75h x 32.75w x 32.75"d while the Ottoman measures 17h x 26w x 21.5"d. The chair’s weight limit is 300lbs. 

Why We Chose This

An object in MoMA's collection, the original Lounge Chair and Ottoman, designed by Charles and Ray Eames in 1956, was made of molded rosewood. When the Museum acquired the chair in 1960 from the Herman Miller Furniture Company, the curators noted, "This is one of the very few modern designs intended specifically to give maximum comfort for people of all sizes and shapes."
