Eames Lounge and Ottoman, White Ash

Designers: Charles and Ray Eames
The authentic, timeless designs of the Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman, so well-known in their black leather incarnation, are now also available in a whiter shade of leather and a pale ash wood. This stunning version of an Eames classic has a light, airy look, perfect for today’s interiors. The shell is a white ash veneer that’s finished with a process that maintains the wood in its natural, “freshly cut” state—a creamy white that resists yellowing. We even updated the base with a white finish.

Eames Lounge Chair

Luxury, Sophistication, Comfort

When we began manufacturing the Eames lounge chair and ottoman in 1956, there was nothing else like it. There still isn't. The set continues to be among the most coveted and beloved Eames pieces.

We still assemble the chair and matching ottoman by hand, and we pay serious attention to the details. The cushions are individually upholstered. The veneers are 7-ply. The hardware fastens the cushions to the shells without marring the appearance of the wood. The permanent tilt of the seat takes weight off your lower spine, so you feel relaxed. And while both pieces are 29 percent recyclable, it's more likely that you'll pass these heirloom pieces on to another generation.

  • Unparalleled Craftsmanship

    Unparalleled Craftsmanship

    We still assemble the chair and ottoman by hand, with 7-ply wood veneer shells. The leather-covered cushions are individually upholstered and each can be replaced if necessary. The back braces are die-cast aluminum. The chair base has a built-in swivel mechanism.

  • Comfort Always Comes First

    Comfort Always Comes First

    The lounge chair has been described as a 20th century interpretation of a 19th century English club chair. The seat is angled to take the weight off the base of your spine; the lower back piece supports your lower back. The angle of the upper back piece that supports your chest allows you to move around comfortably while you're sitting.

  • Own a Real Icon

    Own a Real Icon

    Part of the permanent collections at New York's MoMA and the Art Institute of Chicago, the chair and ottoman have been the subject of documentary films and books; were the sole subject of a museum show at the Museum of Arts & Design in New York; and are featured prominently in the television series "Frasier" and "House," as well as in numerous stylish movie interiors. Although the word "icon" is overused, it's exactly the right word in this case.

  • The Genuine Article

    The Genuine Article

    It seems that any piece of furniture designed by the Eames team and manufactured by Herman Miller is sooner or later copied and copied again. Cheap knockoffs of the original try to fool consumers. Rest assured: There is no copy that feels or looks or performs as beautifully as the original.

Eames Lounge chair replacement parts

My Eames lounge chair and Ottoman are in good shape with the major exception of the cushions which desperately need to be replaced.

When I purchased the chair I was told that the cushions could be easily replaced because they just "snap" into place.

It would be wonderful if this is the case because I cannot tell you how much I love this chair. Besides it's functionality, comfort and sheer beauty, it is like a piece of art to me. I think it gets the most use in our home. Unfortunately our former feline pet also loved the chair and her rear claws also got into this wonderful chair and ottoman!!! I am praying that you can help me replace the cushions for this masterpiece!

Can you? I need to know If the cushions are available for replacement and who or where I can get them replaced with the authentic Herman Miller cushions. I have the black leather.

Thank you. Lin

Answer: 
At this time we are only offering the white MCL pearl leather for the Eames Lounge Chair & Ottoman in white ash. We do offer many different leather options for our Eames Lounge & Ottoman in the following finishes:

- Natural Cherry Stained Veneer
- Oiled Walnut Veneer
- Walnut Veneer
- Oiled Santos Palisander Veneer
- Santos Palisander Veneer

Since the white ash veneer is a relatively new finish option, anything is possible as we consider future product options!

Eames Lounge and Ottoman, White Ash 5 5 1 1
Stunning and beautifully crafted. This is my fourth Herman Miller chair and first classic Eames lounge chair. It's definitely not for everyone; my mom thinks it's too low. But I absolutely love it; it's extremely comfortable for me to read, watch TV and lounge in. Beautifully crafted and the white leather on white ash is stunning. Herman Miller has the most wonderful customer service, too! March 26, 2014
