Herman Miller Eames Aluminum Group Lounge Chair with Headrest
Tilt & Swivel Base, Leather Upholstery
designed by Charles and Ray Eames
At A Glance:
The Eames Aluminum Group Chairs were originally designed to function both indoors and outdoors, but they soon transitioned to solely indoor pieces. At first glance, it is easy to see why - these pieces are as much art as they are pieces of furniture, and when something looks this good you don't keep it outside.
The Lounge Chair features an exposed, lightweight aluminum frame like other pieces from the Aluminum Chair group and has a high back and reclined position for a sitting position that encourages you to relax rather than work. The frame supports the suspended upholstery, available in a wide variety of leather colors. These leather options make the Eames Aluminum Lounge Chair a long-lasting, elegant place to relax in luxury. The integrated headrest is also upholstered in the same leather with a foam pillow.
Also available with fabric upholstery.

What's To Like:
The Eames Aluminum Lounge Chair is clearly meant for rest and relaxation. A chair to watch movies and television in, to read in, or to simply take a nap. The Eames Aluminum Group Lounge Chair is the perfect fit for any modern living room. The integrated headrest is a luxurious touch, both in terms of comfort and style. This is a chair that looks great, feels good, and is at home in nearly any setting. One adjustment to the chair that makes it more comfortable than other Aluminum Group chairs is the extra curve in the back, for natural support and extended comfort.
What's Not To Like:
In the office, this chair would really only be of use in particularly luxurious, or particularly large, offices. The kind of office where you could nap without being disturbed, for instance. Depending on your business, it could be an interesting addition to the lobby area, where customers or clients might enjoy it. But in general, this is a design that's limited to the home, not the corporate office.
The Bottom Line:
Wherever you use the Eames Aluminum Lounge Chair, it's going to keep you comfortable and in style. And that describes the perfect lounge chair. It also meshes well with most design schemes; the leather colors include many tasteful options. But this chair could also work in your bedroom, or in your kids' room or guest room; anywhere where someone might want to take a break from their day and simply relax, read, or think. Always comfortable and always beautiful, it's a chair anyone can enjoy.
