A White Eames Chaise Longue
A white Eames La Chaise longue.
In 1948 Charles and Ray designed this lounge chair for The Museum of Modern Art’s 1948 “International Competition for Low-Cost Furniture Design.” Its name references both its function as well as Gaston Lachaise’s Floating Figure sculpture, whose shape the Eameses thought would fit the chair perfectly. Additional Information Comprised of two bonded fiberglass shells, a chromed base, and natural oak feet, the chair exhibits a captivating elegance and allows for a wide range of sitting and reclining positions.
The Eames La Chaise was never sold during Charles and Ray’s lifetime. It proved too costly to produce; however, their Armchair design, which they entered into the same competition, won a prize and was produced in fiberglass with great success. It wasn’t until 1996 that the long-time Eames partner, Vitra International, began manufacturing and distributing the La Chaise in response to public interest and demand. Today, the chair serves as a long-established icon of organic design. It is available exclusively from Vitra.

The Design / Brand
Vitra believe that thoughts and feelings are shaped by our surroundings – whether at home, at work or on the go. Vitra founder Willi Fehlbaum first came across creations by Ray and Charles Eames in the early 1950s. This decisive moment marked Vitra’s beginnings as a design company. Vitra has collaborated with international designers and architects ever since.
