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. Model ES106 Available in Herman Miller black leather. This chaise has six 5Omm thick foam cushions with leather upholstery supported by a fabric string, nylon glides to base. Base and frame finish is in Eggplant powder coat. Includes two additional base cushions.
