The Eames Lounge Chair

Eames Lounge Chair

We know some of you were more interested in the chair from these photos we posted this morning. And that is OK to admit, because it’s a beauty. The Eames Lounge Chair was designed in 1965 by the husband and wife team of Charles and Ray Eames. Using leather and bent woods the design is functional and comfortable, while retaining a beauty not often seen in furniture design. Somehow it is beautiful and masculine at the same time.

Charles and Ray Eames are considered masters of 20th century design. Their catalog of designs remains vital and stylish today, 50 plus years later. But we’ve already told you that.

Those photos this morning got us all excited partly because of Micky and partly because of the Eames Lounge Chair. We’re design fags. Sometimes chairs and boys both can get our blood pumping. The chair may cost more, but unlike the boy, it will last a lifetime.
