First introduced by famed designers Charles and Ray Eames, a husband and wife team in 1956. Today it's one of the most widely recognized and imitated furniture designs, but Eames' goal for the lounge chair and ottoman was much more modest. They wanted to build a chair with "the warm receptive look of a well used first baseman's mitt." So they nestled supple leather-covered cushions in molded-plywood, veneer-covered forms, connected them with die-cast aluminum back braces. Eames set them all on bases painted black with bright polished aluminum trim and adjustable stainless steel glides. Now an icon of modern design, the chair has been produced continuously for over 50 years.
