The iconic Eames recliner is one of the most recognizable and classic furniture pieces of all time. Loved by millions, it has been in continuous production and demand since its release in 1956. It was designed by Charles and Ray Eames, for the Herman Miller Furniture Company, and was the first chair that they designed for a high end market. Made of molded plywood, covered by a veneer of either, cherry, walnut, or a sustainably grown Palisander rosewood, and leather, the Eames, as Charles put it, “has the warm, receptive look of a well-used first baseman’s mitt.”
There are many reasons to love it. Just take a look.
