Watch a Vintage Eames Lounge Chair Get Assembled

The Eames Lounge Chair is probably the single most iconic piece of high modernist furniture ever made. Designed by famed modernist designer couple Charles and Ray Eames for the Herman Miller furniture company, the Lounge’s sleek wooden curves and sumptuous leather have pretty much become a byword for wealth and luxury in the design world. In fact, the Lounge Chair was the first luxury product Charles and Ray Eames designed. Check out the original 1956 commercial for the chair that showcases its modular construction, plus a vintage interview with Charles Eames and a modern version of the first ad.
