The Vitra Eames Lounge Chair. 
Vitra Eames Lounge Chair
The Eames Lounge Chair from Vitra is one of the mo
st famous designs by Charles and Ray Eames. Created in 1956 it is now a classic in the history of modern furniture.
The Vitra Eames Lounge Chair brings together the raw materials and fabrics with the hard, dedicated workmanship to provide the highest quality of seating pleasure. The Vitra Eames Lounge Chair was based around the design of the English Club Chair, and this was an inspirational classic in Charles and Ray Eames's eyes. The original design of the Eames Lounge Chair came in dark wood veneer and the highest quality black leather. The Eames can now be found in a variety of shades and fabrics. 
My personal Favourite was the 60 year anniversary edition in Black Twill, although the Eames Lounge is a stunning chair in any fabric. 

Between 1st of November 2017 and the 31st of January 2018 when you purchase a Eames Lounge Chair you will receive either:  Occasional Table (TLR), the Eames House Bird (in either black or white) or a Vitra Ceramic Clock!
