Eames Lounge Chair: The Perfect Man Chair

Eames Lounge Chair: The Perfect Man Chair


I remember watching shows and movies like Frasier, Mad Men and Iron Man thinking of how the classic Eames Lounge Chair seemed like such a manly icon, the best-engineered chair in the world.

But what makes the Eames Lounge Chair such a manly chair? I’m sure there are very particular and crucial elements that set the Eames Lounge Chair apart and from other chairs as being more appealing to men.

Let’s examine what makes the Eames Lounge Chair the Perfect Man Chair.

And if you’re like Tony Stark, don’t settle for anything than an icon for your home. I bet you can find a great place to buy an Eames Lounge Chair in this blog.

It’s a comfortable chair

When a man chooses a chair, not to say anything, the first thing in his mind is the function he wants to fulfill. When it comes to a chair, it’s comfort. Most men love a high back so they can lean their head back to relax at the end of the day. The Eames Lounge Chair features a nice high back and an angled headrest, both softly padded. If Tony liked it … you probably will too.

Leather upholstery

Leather Jackets, Chesterfield Sofas, Business Briefcases, all icons of manhood… but what do they have in common? Yup, they’re made of leather and more leather. We’re interior designers, not psychologists, so we can’t tell you why but men love leather.

There is certainly something about the look, smell, and feel of real leather that is irresistible to most men. Maybe it’s a primal instinct from when we were hunters. Whatever it is, if it has a rich leather, we’ll love it. The Eames Lounge Chair is not an exception.

The Armrests

Notice how the Eames Lounge Chair has armrests that easily fit the body when sitting on the chair? A man can sit all the way back in this chair, and his hands won’t be dangling over the end of the armrests. And you know what are armrests good for too? Putting down drinks, books, sports magazines, TV remote, everything a man might need.

The Ottoman

Or, basically, a place to put your feet up. The Eames Lounge Chair is sleek, softly padded and perfect for putting his feet up after a long day. There’s no much more a man can ask from a lounge chair.

A generous size

No matter the size, most men like a lounge chair that is roomy. The Eames Lounge Chair is neither thick nor bulky, but it has a generous size. And if it isn’t enough for you, you can always get a bigger, Tall Edition. Any tall man may appreciate a chair that the right size for them.

Rugged Manly Looks

When looking at the style of a lounge chair, a man looks for one that is just as ruggedly handsome as he is… Or at least as he thinks he is or would like to be.

The rich wood accent around the outside of the Eames Lounge Chair will also add to the masculine appeal. And there are those full-length armrests again.

If a man’s home is his castle, his chair is his throne. The Eames Lounge Chair by Charles and Ray Eames is hands down, the mid-century modern throne. What better chair for a man to sit in while enjoying his man-cave?
