Description

The Eames armchair, inspired by the original Lounge Chair design by the American designer Charles Eames, is available in either leather or wood. Originally designed as a relaxation armchair for a filmmaker friend, it soon became the most popular and desired chaise longue for classy living rooms. The armchair is still recognised as a symbol of comfort and domestic interior design, as well as being an iconic piece with timeless elegance.
The base is a swivel base, the seat is upholstered and covered in leather, fabric or faux-leather, and the frame is made from curved plywood which has been manually treated with a wax finish. The backrest is very soft thanks to the padding, and also offers the right amount of support, thanks to its shape.
This armchair is a reproduction produced in an Italian craft workshop which specialises in leather and metalwork.

Material Specifications
Calf Leather: cowhide originating from European and non-European slaughterhouses, chrome tanning, dyeing in accordance with CEE legislation, average measurements 4/ 5 m2, 0,91 mm thick. Calf leather, or “contract” leather, is a proper-grain leather. It is a competitively-priced leather which is soft to touch and lasts well over time. An excellent balance between quality and price.

Full-grain Leather: cowhide originating from European and non-European slaughterhouses, chrome tanning, dyeing in accordance with CEE legislation, average measurements 4/ 5 m2, 1,4 / 1,6 mm thick. Printed Grain leather (“grain” leather) is also a proper-grain leather but is thicker than calf leather. This gives it added durability over time and helps it to last longer. The surface of the leather is usually slightly more rough to the touch, in comparison to other types of leather.

Aniline Leather: cowhide originating from European and non-European slaughterhouses, chrome tanning, dyeing in accordance with CEE legislation, average measurements 4/ 5 m2, 1,1 / 1,2 mm thick. Aniline leather is the finest leather used for furniture. The grain on the surface is completely natural and has not undergone any corrections, so much so that you can make out the pores, veining, and grooves. This means that the surface is not as uniform as the other types of leather. Aniline leather is soft to touch.

Fabric: a composition consisting of 63% cotton and 37% linen, weighing 380 gr/m2, 140cm in height.
