The Eames Lounge Chair is an object that has aroused such admiration that it has been compared to the most coveted and acclaimed luxury cars on the automotive market and other luxury products. Comparatively, the design was said to be a cross between a Mercedes-Benz and a Barcalounger. The best part is that many critics and furniture design analysts have agreed that this description is very accurate. The list of celebrities and famous people who have got an Eames Lounge Chair is endless, and this over time, has done nothing more than to reboot again and again the fame that the chair already brought thanks to its famous creators Charles and Ray Eames.
The data on some of the ways the chair has been used is legendary. For example, the Shark Tank set features a large number of them as they were added for modernization before filming season 9. The fame of the armchair is not merely mediatic, but it’s a piece that is present in different museums around the world. Among the most important are the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Michigan, the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, and 20 other major museums around the United States and Europe.
Interestingly, it was film director Billy wilder who created the initial prototype of the chair, but it was nothing more than a crude model with plywood beams and trestles. Later, the Eames dramatically improved the design and made it more modern and sophisticated. Currently, people have the possibility of acquiring an Eames Lounge Chair replica like the one from Manhattan Home Design, an Eames Lounge Chair reproduction that emulates with great fidelity all the technical and aesthetic characteristics of the original piece.
