The one piece of furniture I’ve longed for, lusted after, craved, dreamed of is a very specific modern lounge chair—the Herman Miller Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman, preferably in creamy white leather, and I think, a white ash shell, though I also love the palisander and walnut finishes. I suppose it would depend on where it lived. At $6,000, it is definitely a dream.
(If you’re in the market, the 15% off Herman Miller sale just started at StyleCarrot partner sites DWR and YLiving. In addition to the modern lounge, you can stock up on Eames fiberglass side chairs and swag leg desk; George Nelson slatted bench, bubble lamps, and that Marshmallow sofa; the Aeron desk chair; and more.)
When I searched for side chairs for our living room, we didn’t have the luxury of considering elongated or flamboyant modern lounge chairs, like the iconic creations of the mid-century masters, such as Arne Jacobsen’s Egg chair or Harry Bertoia’s Bird chair. Instead, I needed much smaller pieces, and actually found a pair of small scale, mid-century modern Danish lounge chairs on eBay.
Still, I can’t help imagining life with an Eames lounge. I love the Jens Risom too, which is much more reasonably scaled. Here are 25 modern lounge chairs from StyleCarrot partners in all sorts of colors, shapes, and sizes, as well as a variety of price points.
