In 1955, while filming on location, director Billy Wilder discovered he could take quick naps on a plank held up by sawhorses. This prompted Wilder to tell his friends Charles and Ray Eames that he needed a narrow office couch. The Eameses remembered that conversation and in 1968 introduced the Eames Chaise, giving the first one to Wilder. It has been produced by Herman Miller ever since.
The chaise is a work of art with its trim lines and sculptural frame and base. It’s available in three colour combinations: aubergine frame with black leather and fabric sling, black frame with black leather and fabric sling, and white frame with pearl leather and white fabric sling.
Six foam cushions upholstered in our premium MCL leather, a semi-aniline, dyed leather with 100% natural full-grain. Two additional loose cushions let you support back, neck or legs. A gently sloping frame puts the body in a healthful, relaxed position, with the head and legs slightly raised.
Stable and durable, the chaise is made of a die-cast aluminium frame and base. Its cushions are joined by flexible zips and secured to nylon fabric slung tightly on the frame. Frame finishes, which are electrostatically applied, resist scratches.
