This ad for the Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman was published in 1956. With the exception of the pipe perhaps, we think it would still look smart in one of today's publications!

The Eames Lounge and Ottoman holds a place dear to many a heart and we never tire of hearing of personal associations with the classic piece. Monique Rapell is head of interiors at the Whitehouse School of Design in Australia and recently blogged of her love of the lounge over at the Temple and Webster blog, here's an excerpt.
"The Eames Lounge holds you like a lover or a parent, depending on which you need most at the time. It is both sensual and deeply comforting....
While most chairs are static, this is dynamic. It not only suggests the curve of the hand, but celebrates the way the body moves with its touch. While always supportive, the chair is permanently reclined, literally begging you to put your feet up, while the swivel base allows you to shift focus while chatting, dreaming or creating."
Thank you Monique. You can read the full post here.

Compete in the Herman Miller Aeron Hockey Championships for your chance to win an Aeron chair, 2 nights in Hong Kong, and the ultimate prize of an Eames Lounge and Ottoman.
The inaugural Pan Asia Pacific Aeron Hockey Championship promises to be huge, and we want you to be part of the fun.
Join your local team, and vie for first place on your nation's leader board. Each nation's winning team will then be flown to Hong Kong to compete in the championship finals. Members from the winning team will walk away with an Eames Lounge & Ottoman, while secondary prizes will be awarded to the first and second runners-up.
And in case you're still wondering ...
Considerably more elegant than the original game, Aeron Hockey is a variation of 'office hockey' whereby players battle it out with a paper puck and a makeshift stick, while seated in sophisticated style on a Herman Miller Aeron chair.
Registration is now open. Contact your local dealer for more information.
