The tendency to search for the perfect reading chair is common and popular for several reasons. One of them is the existence of models that offer superior ergonomics and are, in fact, highly recognized for being technically appropriate designs for this type of activity.
Among the chairs that meet these characteristics and are within the catalog of recognized pieces, there’s no doubt that the Eames Lounge Chair has a special place for being a highly sold model for more than fifty years for similar purposes, since it’s a piece suitable for both office and indoor environments (especially living rooms and studies) and outdoors such as terraces, patios, and balconies.
The Eames Lounge Chair was in development for several years before the chair went on sale. Its designers, Charles and Ray Eames, sought perfection. They wanted to deliver a product that could fulfill the demands of an audience that wouldn’t care so much about the price but the quality of the piece.
In other words, a chair aimed at modern high-end consumers who wanted something really new, made by professionals. The end result turned out to be so momentous that it became a reference for different uses. Today, the chair is not only present in reading rooms, libraries, and studies but also public areas and many others.
