The Eames Lounge Chair is one of the most famous, and one of my favorite, design classics. The Lounge Chair and the ottoman, designed by Charles and Ray Eames, are made of plywood and high quality leather. After years of development the chair and the ottoman were released in 1956. It was the first chair that the Eameses designed for a high-end market. Examples of these furnishings are part of the permanent collection of New York’s Museum of Modern Art.
