You don’t have to be an expert on MCM furniture pieces to know that the Eames Lounge Chair is one of the most popular designs worldwide. Not only within the furniture design world but also in other areas that probably its creators, Charles and Ray Eames, never imagined. When they introduced it to the market in 1956, after several years they dedicated to perfecting and fine-tuning each of its details, never suspected how famous it would get.
One of those areas is the artistic medium because, since the year in which it appeared, the chair has had frequent participation in several movies, TV shows, and even recently appeared in Shakira featuring Black Eyed Peas video “A Girl Like Me”.
What’s the secret to its appeal, and why even some products like the Eames Lounge Chair replica by Manhattan Home Design so faithfully emulate even its tiniest features? We can name a few reasons in this article. First of all, it is an imposing chair.
When it’s next to its ottoman, it forms the perfect seat that any contemporary person would want to rest on from the arduous routine. It’s a superb piece at first glance, with fine finishes, generous dimensions, and materials that, from the first meeting, show a high category nature.
It’s no coincidence that even the Eames Lounge Chair reproduction has also become one of the best-selling products in the vast majority of modern furniture stores. Furthermore, its continued popularity over several entire decades is the most obvious and resounding proof that it’s a design of immortal beauty.
