Charles and Ray Eames made the lounge chair and ottoman as a gift for their friend Billy Wilder, the director of "Some Like It Hot" and "Sunset Boulevard".
When the set was introduced in 1956, there was nothing else like it. The design was completely new. It has not only endured for more than 50 years—it has become one of the significant furniture designs of the 20th century
Since then who doesn't recognise the Eames lounge chair and ottoman?
These pieces live in museums like MOMA in New York and the Art Institute of Chicago, in stylish interiors around the world, and as a tattoo on a devotee's arm.
They have been the subject of documentaries and books. The quintessential modern classic, the set is now available in an expanded range of materials, to suit any interior and every taste.
