Design classic (12) – Eames lounge chair

Friday Friday Friday, Friday Friday Friday!  Sorry am a smidge excited about the weekend, we have a corker lined up.

Erm, so I’ve been spending a great deal of time recently oogling Eames Lounge Chairs (both real and replica – eek) and thought it was about time I gave them a little limelight on le blog. 


Designed by hubs/wife team Ray and Charles Eames in 1956 for the Herman Miller Furniture Company, the Eames Lounge and Ottoman (to give it the official name) is possibly the most iconic piece of furniture ever designed.  Giving the perfect dose of masculinity to any room, I particularly love them (you guessed it) combined with more eclectic furnishings, not just the bog standard minimalist white decor you so often see them paired with.

Ooh and here’s a really useful article I found on my internet ramblings about how to spot a fake/buy a good fake…ahem.

So first up am loving this hint of industrial chic with the concrete walls, and am slightly smitten with this staircase – oh yeh, and the chair’s not bad either…

I actually really love it in tan leather too, think this might be my fave – ooh although I just spotted that it is a bad fakey, the arms and legs are no good at all.

More divine cowhides:

And I usually make a point of scoffing at anything made out of white leather, but this little vignette is actually quite cool:

Seems to be a very popular choice for libraries:

And lastly, I’m not ususally one for baby pics but how cute is this?!

Have a fabulous weekend all, what are your plans?
