This is basically lesson 1 in modern furniture class, as well as my personal favourite. This is why I believe everyone who reads my blog, should know about the most legendary chair of all time:
Lounge Chair & Ottoman by Charles & Ray Eames, 1956
The Lounge Chair is one of the most famous designs by Charles and Ray Eames. Created in 1956 it is now a classic in the history of modern furniture.

Since 1956, the Eames Lounge Chair has combined ultimate comfort with both materials and workmanship of the highest quality. In the tradition of the English club chair, which inspired this classic design by Charles and Ray Eames, the original appearance of the Lounge Chair was defined by a dark wood veneer and black leather.
However, the Eameses also created an early version with light-coloured leather upholstery.
Developed in cooperation with the Eames Office, Vitra now introduces a new interpretation of the Lounge Chair. With white leather, polished aluminium and walnut veneer in a light finish, the new version harmonises perfectly with light-coloured interiors.
The Lounge Chair is now also available in a version that allows maximum comfort for tall people.
