Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman by Herman Miller White Ash and Select MCL Leather designed by Charles and Ray Eames
What You Get: The classic Eames Lounge Chair and its partner in crime, the well-proportioned Ottoman in the new White Ash finish.
At A Glance: This is a new introduction that combines select colors from Herman Miller's MCL Leather collection with a White Ash veneer. The latter undergoes a special finishing process to arrest the white ash in its creamy, "freshly cut" state. This is the first time these colors have been made available.
What's To Like: For starters, it's the same form and function as the classic Eames Lounge and Ottoman. The only change is purely aesthetic.
What's Not to Like: There are limited options here - a white ash frame with pearl, ivory or almond leather. If one of these is a deal breaker for you then you might want to look at our main Eames Lounge Chair page for a veritable plethora of options.
The Bottom Line: The tones in the leather and veneer create a pristine, smooth appearance that we find refreshing. It really seems like the new Eames Lounge Chair should be sitting on top of a cloud somewhere.

Charles and Ray Eames Designers, artists, thinkers, and filmmakers- the Eameses were married for 37 years, and operated the Office of Ray and Charles Eames together for 35 of those years. They were partners in every sense of the word, sharing a home, an office, and collaborating on every piece of furniture and film they made together. For many years it was thought that Charles had been the driving force behind most of their design work, but recent findings have proven what had always been obvious about the two; they were inseparable, and the ideas they had and the projects they worked on were mutual and cooperative.
Charles and Ray collaborated on some of the most stunning and beautiful film and design projects of the last century. They are responsible for the Powers of Ten film, Tocatta for Toy Trains (film), The Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman, the Eames Aluminum Group furniture, the molded plywood chair, the TimeLife chair and stool, and various award winning museum exhibitions, including Mathematica. The Eames left not a stone unturned in their lifelong quest to bring the "uncommon beauty of common thing" into modern design, and practically no medium was ever eschewed when it came to getting their point across. Separately they would be ranked extremely high on any respectable list of great designers in the 20th century, but together they were unstoppable.
The Office of Charles and Ray Eames is still operating in California, with family member Lucia (daughter) and Eames Demetrios (grandson) running the family business. A great place for innovative and now historic film, toys, furniture and exhibits, the Office of Charles and Ray Eames is a California treasure.
