- Product information
In 1955 while filming on location, director Billy Wilder discovered he could take quick naps on a plank held up by sawhorses. This prompted Wilder to tell his friends Charles and Ray Eames that he needed a narrow office couch.
The Eames' remembered that conversation and in 1968 introduced the Eames chaise, giving the first one to Wilder. It has been produced by Herman Miller ever since.
The Eames Chaise is soft, comfortable and just 457-mm wide. When you lie on it, you naturally fold your arms over your chest. Should you doze off, your arms soon fall to your sides, waking you up. It’s a beautiful place to relax for a while in a study, living room or executive office.
Six foam cushions upholstered in our premium MCL leather, a semi-aniline, dyed leather with 100% natural full-grain. Two additional loose cushions let you support back, neck or legs. A gently sloping frame puts the body in a healthful, relaxed position, with the head and legs slightly raised.
