Charles Eames, Jr (June 17, 1907 - August 21, 1978) was born in St. Louis, Missouri. Charles was the nephew of St. Louis architect William S. Eames. By the age of 14, while attending Yeatman high school, Charles worked at the Laclede Steel Company as a part-time laborer, where he learned about engineering, drawing, and architecture (and also first entertained the idea of one day becoming an architect).

In 1930, Charles began his own architectural practice in St. Louis with partner Charles Gray. They were later joined by a third partner, Walter Pauley.

Charles Eames was greatly influenced by the Finnish architect Eliel Saarinen (whose son Eero, also an architect, would become a partner and friend). At the elder Saarinen's invitation, Charles moved in 1938, to further study architecture at the Cranbrook Academy of Art, where he would become a teacher and head of the industrial design department. In order to apply for the Architecture and Urban Planning Program, Eames defined an area of focus: the St. Louis waterfront. Together with Eero Saarinen he designed prize-winning furniture for New York's Museum of Modern Art "Organic Design in Home Furnishings" competition. Their work displayed the new technique of wood molding (originally developed by Alvar Aalto), that Eames would further develop in many molded plywood products, including chairs and other furniture, splints and stretchers for the US Navy during World War II.

In 1941, he married his Cranbrook colleague Ray Kaiser, who was born in Sacramento, California. He then moved with her to Los Angeles, California, where they would work and live until their deaths. In the late 1940s, as part of the Arts & Architecture magazine's "Case Study" program, Charles and Ray designed and built the groundbreaking Eames House, Case Study House #8, as their home. Located upon a cliff overlooking the Pacific Ocean and hand-constructed within a matter of days entirely of pre-fabricated steel parts intended for industrial construction, it remains a milestone of modern architecture.

Charles Eames died of a heart attack on August 21, 1978 while on a consulting trip in his native Saint Louis, and was buried in the Calvary Cemetery there. He now has a star on the St. Louis Walk of Fame.

Ray-Bernice Alexandra Kaiser Eames (December 15, 1912 - August 21, 1988) was born in Sacramento, California to Alexander and Edna Burr Kaiser. After having lived in a number of cities during her youth, she graduated from Bennett Women's College in Millbrook, New York, in 1933 and moved to New York City, where she studied abstract expressionist painting with Hans Hofmann.

In September 1940, she began studies at the Cranbrook Academy of Art in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. She met Charles Eames while preparing drawings and models for the Organic Design in Home Furnishings competition and they were married the following year. Settling in Los Angeles, California, Charles and Ray Eames would lead an outstanding career in design and architecture. In the late 1940s, Ray Eames created several textile designs, two of which, "Crosspatch" and "Sea Things", were produced by Schiffer Prints, a company that also produced textiles by Frank Lloyd Wright. Original examples of Ray Eames textiles can be found in many art museum collections. The Ray Eames textiles have been re-issued by Maharam as part of their Textiles of the Twentieth Century collection.

Ray Eames died in Los Angeles in 1988, ten years to the day after Charles. They are buried next to each other in Calvary Cemetery in St. Louis.

  1. Gabriel Q.

    I love this chair. Quality materials, simple design, and comfortable.

  2. Susan B.

    The chair is very comfortable, it supports ones back well, is very stable a good height and easy to alight from. One can fall asleep in the chair and not awaken with a cricked neck. The ottoman is very stable as well as a good height.

  3. Sue D.

    I’m very happy with the eames lounge chair. It is very comfy and relaxing after a busy day. It also looks great!

  4. Shane C.

    My Eames chair is everything I hoped and expected it would be given that I purchased without testing – much more comfortable than all other replicas on the market.

  5. Dee D.

    Bought this for the hubby’s 50th birthday and he loves it! Was worried ordering online and unseen, but there was no need to stress. Beautiful soft leather, great quality and stunning to look at.

  6. Michael E.

    We love the two Eames chairs. Something very special and relaxing about ending your day in the comfort of such a unique and classic design.

  7. Stewart W.

    Sipping your favourite espresso in the morning to quaffing your favourite red in the evening – you enjoy them both on the Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman.

  8. Ron T.

    I bought 2 early this year. They are great. The leather is soft and wonderful to touch. My grandchildren also love them.

  9. Nicole B.

    It is a very nice chair. The leather is super smooth and the swivel is too. The cushions are very thick all around. I got it really fast and it was easy to put together.

  10. Jaden F.

    I chose not to pay for it to be fully assembled. It took me about 15 minutes to finish assembling it myself. The chair and ottoman are very nice and have a very classic look. I am very happy with it so far.

  11. Lori R.

    This is comfortable and the matching ottoman is nice. Everything about it is nice. I got the regular Italian leather and it is just fine. It took about a week and a half to get here.

  12. Randy O.

    I’m very happy with the Eames Lounge chair in Pallisander wood and black leather. Coast to coast shipping was quick. I emailed the company with some questions about assembly and I had them answered the following morning. I highly recommend them.

  13. Rainbow R.

    This isn’t the NAME BRAND but it lives up to the craftsmanship, service, and overall quality. I’m blown away by how comfortable this chair feels. It’s now the centerpiece of my entertainment room.

  14. Chris R.

    Great looking and comfortable chair.

  15. Barbara S.

    Doing some research on the mid-century modernist style I found myself coming back to Camellia to take a better look at their catalog. It’s all so beautiful, I purchased this item a few months ago an I’m very satisfied.

  16. David W.

    You will love this Chair! very nice quality. The support at Camellia even better quality!

  17. Paula W.

    It is so comfortable, a DREAM to sit on and put your feet up.

  18. Fiona L.

    Our extended family own three eames lounge chairs – we love the practical design and comfort – and would recommend it as a chair.

  19. Ralph S.

    I have had my Eames for over a year now and its as comfortable and solid as the day I bought it, love it.

  20. Nick C.

    The chair is good. I like it and it is well made. The chair is very comfortable and the materials are very nice.

  21. Alex C.

    This chair embodies what a good replica should be like: quality craftsmanship, supple leather, quality wood veneer, and affordability. At its price-point, it’s an honest attempt at capturing the ethos of the original Eames’ design– that to be accessible for all.

  22. Daniel B.

    Impressive quality everywhere you look. I truly believe that I have made the best choice when purchasing this item. Couldn’t be happier.

  23. Carol F.

    I couldn’t tell this from the original design my friend has. It looks and feels exactly the same. Except mine was heck of a lot less expensive. The materials and craftsmanship is great and stays true to the original design. This chair makes me very happy every time I look at it.
