La Chaise Lounge Chair by Charles and Ray Eames

Isn't she a beauty? And besides being a sculptural gem, its really very comfortable! Charles and Ray Eames designed La Chaise in 1948 for a competition at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, inspired by ''Floating Figure'', a sculpture by Gaston Lachaise. It is the unbelievable elegance of this assertive seating sculpture that enables any number of sitting and reclining positions, which is so very appealing. It has long since established itself as an icon of organic design. They were truly ahead of the times!

Manufactured by Vitra, one of the preeminent names in European furniture.
