(June 2019) Morten Bøgebjerg just left a new 5-star Trustpilot review of Iconic Interiors Ltd:

The Eames Lounge & Ottoman has arrived, and it’s beautiful. I’m a wood worker designing and building custom musical instruments, so I have attention to detail. After inspecting the chair I can honestly say, that the quality of the leather, the veneers, the finish of the metal parts, the assembly is all amazing and very high quality. As you say in one of your videos: You will not be disappointed, and I can tell you, that we’re very happy that we choose to buy from you. Thank you Mark. More reviews on our Trustpilot Review Page.

The Full Story

In the 1950’s, Charles Eames set out to design a modern answer to the Edwardian English club chair as a birthday gift for his good friend, the Academy Award-winning film director Billy Wilder. The famed designer wasn’t out to change the world. All he wanted was to make his friend a comfortable chair that had “the receptive look of a well used first baseman’s mitt”. In baseball terms, you could say Eames and his wife and partner hit a home run with their creation.

Today, the Eames Lounger and Ottoman is one of the most recognised and admired pieces of furniture of the 20th century, occupying many illustrious living rooms, studies, lounges and dens – and a permanent place in New York’s Museum of Modern Art. Ironic, since Ray Eames first reaction to the chair was to tell her husband that it looked “comfortable and un-designy”.

Perhaps because of its illustrious first recipient, the Eames Lounger and Ottoman was the first chair the Eames designed for a high-end market. Like most of the work they created for the famed Herman Miller Furniture Company, it began with plywood – in this case, three curved plywood shells created from several thin layers of wood veneer. But unlike previous Eames creations, the Lounger and matching Ottoman were upholstered in thick, comfortable leather. The Lounge Chair stands out among their work for its unabashed luxury and meticulous handcrafting.

The Eames Lounger and Ottoman have spent most of their fifty-plus years in the spotlight. After brightening Billy Wilder’s birthday, they appeared on NBC television on Arlene Francis’s “Home” show. They also graced the apartment of the ever-discerning Frasier Crane, and starred in a famous advertising campaign that placed the chair and ottoman in various settings including a Victorian parlor, the middle of a hayfield, and on the porch of an “American Gothic” style house complete with pea-shelling grandma.

No doubt it will look just as natural in your home.
