An authentic Eames Lounge (670) and Ottoman (671) set by Herman Miller is, to me, the most iconic piece of furniture, ever. And, vintage models and new issues are - while amazing - super duper expensive. There have been a few companies who have produced copies - namely Plycraft and Frank Doerner from Canada - and they can be a bit easier to find. Though, due to their knockoff status, they haven't always been as well cared for.
The Eames lounge chair is a standard in many a manly room. It's welcoming shape, perfect height, and oh-so-essential ottoman make it a main supporter, but not a major focal piece in any room. It does it's job, and it does it well, but doesn't demand attention...well, other than when you have someone over for the first time and they say, "Oh my gosh, you have an Eames lounge?!"
Which is why Ana's makeover of a chair she knabbed for free and an ottoman she found for $10 is so unexpected...and yet, kinda works.
