Montage: Eames Lounge

At first glance, if you’re not (gasp!) a connoisseur of the mid-century modern, the Eames lounge may look frumpy. I’ve heard from a couple of women that I interviewed for articles, that their husbands “didn’t get it” at first, but then went on to love and live in it. I would so love one in white leather, with a walnut shell. I would keep in Cape Cod, positioned towards the ocean view, adn there you would find me, ensconced (with my Mac Air of course) pretty much always. Like most mid-century modern pieces, the Eames lounge works well in most d├ęcors, from rooms filled with old antiques and Oriental rugs to the sparest of minimalist spaces. Here is a sampling of well-designed rooms that included this iconic piece designed by Charles and Ray Eames.

  3. *Sigh* – I’ll take one on black leather, please, and place it in my log home, near the window overlooking the river.


Let's talk style.
