Frame Color

The Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman veneered frame is available in six different finishes including Walnut, Santos Palisander, White Ash, Ebony and two oiled finishes.

Which is most popular?
Walnut by far.

Why does the oiled finish cost so much more and is it worth it?
Hand-oiled finishes are labor intensive to apply and require many coats on a rigid schedule that can only be done by hand. They are finished using a boiled linseed oil (don't worry, your very own care and maintenance kit comes with your purchase) that was original to the chair when originally constructed. When reapplied quarterly the finish retains its original look and feel from year one to year thirty. The lacquer finish (standard for all non-oiled versions) is less expensive as its very easy to spray coat the veneer but over the years when exposed to sunlight the wood can yellow slightly. So, basically oiled is richer, requires more maintenance but is the original method used on the chairs back in the 50s. Lacquered requires no maintenance but can leave the veneer lackluster over time.
