        Beautiful styling that really influences a room. I didn't really understand my style until I put this lounge chair and ottoman in my living room. Now I see I'm a modern gal! So comfortable and beautiful! Great for just hanging out and chatting or reading a book or watching tv. I wish that it could recline then it would be the most perfect chair in the universe. It's worth every penny. I got it in the white leather :) You may want to put it in a room where your kids don't play as you will have a heart attack if they drop something on it or decide to spruce it up with crayons and markers. ENJOY!

              Service and delivery comments:

              Delivery was prompt, the men were courteous and careful, and I will definitely shop Room and Board again. This was our first experience and loved it. Our salesperson, [@], from the University Village store was so helpful arranging everything. He is the reason we went with you instead of another design store that had the same chair on sale.

                I first saw this chair in the 50's in a San Francisco museum. In fact, I even wrote a paper on it's design. For 50 years, I have wanted this chair, and now I have my own. I love it and sit in it whenever someone else has not taken it over. It is the most comfortable chair I have ever owned.

                    We had been looking to get a new accent chair for our living room after updating our couch to a mid-century modern style. After considering other cheaper options, we saw the sale that Room & Board was having on Herman Miller furniture, which included the fantastic Eames Lounge Chair.

                    Having made the decision to invest in such a beautiful designer chair was the right decision. It looks great and immediately draws you to it. When you sink into the soft leather you don't want to get up. I admit to being a bit concerned how the chair would look after a few weeks of use, but it still looks fantastic and holds its shape very well. It is a pleasure to look at and sit in, and well worth the cost.

                        Q:

                        I'm trying to find out if the Eames Lounge chair height of 32 inches you show is from floor to top of seat back or from seat surface to top of seat back. The 32 inches seems pretty short for the chair that looks higher. Also, does it sit upright also or just the recline as shown?

                          A:

                          The Eames lounge chair does sit low. The seat height is 15”h, the top back of the chair 32” high up from the floor. It does not sit upright as there is no adjustment, rather it will always have that slight recline.
