Despite its prodigious popularity, one complaint has beleaguered the Eames Lounge, especially in the last few years: its smaller size. While perfect for people between 5'2" and 5'10"—much more common in the 1950s than today—anyone taller will find the original size a bit lacking. The problem resides in the seat depth and backrest height—it just doesn't accommodate rangier people. Herman Miller was able to identify the problem, and as a solution, they developed the Eames Tall Lounge and Ottoman. This new model has all of the same sinuous curves and plush cushions as the original Eames Lounge except with a deeper seat and taller headrest. Sometimes, in the course of human history, it's necessary to improve on good designs. Now anyone can reap the comfort and aesthetic benefits that the Eames Lounge provides by purchasing the Eames Tall Lounge Chair and Ottoman!.
The Eames Tall Lounge Chair and Ottoman® by Herman Miller is a modern masterpiece that has stood the test of time. Its timeless design has remained relevant for over 60 years and continues to capture the imagination of design enthusiasts worldwide. Charles and Ray Eames designed the chair with the user's comfort in mind, creating a chair that was both inviting and visually appealing. The chair's molded plywood technology was groundbreaking at the time and continues to be highly regarded for its durability and strength.
The Eames Tall lounge Chair and Ottoman® is the culmination of Charles and Ray Eames' efforts to create comfortable and handsome lounge seating by using production techniques that combine technology and handcraftsmanship. The Eames Lounge Chair® first appeared on the Arlene Francis Home broadcast on the NBC television network in the US in 1956. Immediately following the debut, Herman Miller launched an advertising campaign that highlighted the versatility of the chair. However, its heritage goes back to the molded plywood chairs pioneered by the Eames in the 1940s. The Eames lounge chair and ottoman® are considered among the most significant and collectible furniture designs of the 20th century and are part of the permanent collection of New York's Museum of Modern Art.
