Man Cave Essential – The Charles Eames Lounge Chair

Kamil Szybalski —  April 25, 2015

We all strive to have a fortress of solitude or man cave, if you will, in our homes and if we’re lucky enough to convince the girlfriend that such a space would be a good idea, then you’re going to need to think about how you’re going to furnish said man-cave. When it comes to your choice of seating, it really is a no-brainer. If you want your reflection space to resemble what Don Draper’s probably looked like, and why wouldn’t you, then you’re definitely going to need to invest in one of these immeasurably dapper Charles Eames Loungers.


Charles Eames was, without question, one of the coolest cats around when it comes to furniture design and his iconic pieces have gone down in history as being some of the most striking and visionary pieces of furniture ever designed. Born in 1907 in St. Louis, Eames crafted many pieces of stunning designer furniture but it is his lounge chair and ottoman for which he is most famed and you will definitely be in good company if you opt for this exemplary piece for your man-cave. Frasier Crane, for example, had the Eames lounge chair and ottoman throughout the hit comedy series.

The Charles Eames lounge chair and ottoman has become one of the most recognisable pieces of designer furniture of the 20th century and it is testament to how far ahead of his time he was as a designer that Eames’ signature piece is just as popular today is it was one he first released it over four decades ago. It is the ideal choice for any manly space and will be the most comfortable chair you have ever sat on bar none.
