Eames Lounge Chair & Ottoman

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 Blvd. When we began manufacturing the set in 1956, we maintained as much of the hand-craftsmanship as was possible with mass production. Throughout the Eames/Nelson era, we came closer than anyone else to incorporating craft ideals into the mass production of furniture.
