1. Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman
You might have heard interior designers speak of the Eames Lounge Chair with hushed tones of deference, and it’s easy to see why. Design-wise, it’s superior — combining different materials like soft leather, plush down feathers, moulded plywood and steel through a combo of painstaking hand labour and technology.
In the words of Charles and Ray Eames, the American husband-and-wife architect duo who designed it in 1956, this decadent lounge chair and ottoman prioritised comfort above all else, designed to project the “warm receptive look of a well-used first baseman’s mitt.”
Today, the Eames lounge chair has been displayed in museums like the Museum of Modern Art in New York and can be spotted in some of the most luxurious homes around the world.
