Eames® Chaise Lounge

SKU: ES106 Made To Order

Indicative of the designers’ playful imagination, a gently sloping frame cradles the body in a healthy, relaxed position. This narrow chaise induces your arms to slip after just a brief period of rest, resulting in the ideal nap duration.

This product is currently out of stock and unavailable.

Charles and Ray gained inspiration for their Chaise Lounge from director Billy Wilder, who said he needed an office couch where he could take catnaps while filming on location. The Eameses recalled Wilder saying he would sometimes rest on a plank of wood supported by two sawhorses. The design duo thought they could come up with a more relaxing option for him, so they created the Eames Chaise Lounge with its long and narrow but contoured design.

Charles and Ray made this piece so that Wilder would instinctually cross his arms over his chest upon lying down. Once he fell asleep, his arms naturally dropped to his sides, waking him up from his nap.
