In 1955 while filming on location, director Billy Wilder discovered he could take quick naps on a plank held up by sawhorses. This prompted Wilder to tell his friends Charles and Ray Eames that he needed a narrow office couch. The Eameses remembered that conversation and in 1968 introduced the Eames chaise, giving the first one to Wilder. It has been produced by Herman Miller ever since.

The Eames chaise is soft, comfortable, and just 18 inches wide. When you lie on it, you naturally fold your arms over your chest. Should you doze off, your arms soon fall to your sides, waking you up. It's a beautiful place to relax for a spell in a study, den, or executive office.

Sleek Sophistication
A work of art. Trim lines, black leather, and a sculptural frame and base.

Beautiful Comfort
Six foam cushions. 2 1/2 inches thick and upholstered in soft leather; two additional loose cushions give support for the back, neck, or legs.
Gently sloping frame. Puts the body in a healthful, relaxed position, with the head and legs slightly raised.

Strong Support
Stable and durable. Die-cast aluminum frame and base.
Secure cushions. Cushions are joined by flexible zippers and secured to nylon fabric tightly slung on the frame.
Scratch resistant. Eggplant-colored coating is electrostatically applied to the frame.

Designer: Charles Eames Ray Eames
