La Chaise

5 roundup

The third Eames piece in the chair roundup is the La Chaise, designed by Charles and Ray Eames in 1948. I know it’s a chaise, not a chair, but it helps to fill out our collection with a uniquely organic design. As a very recognizable piece, it is unique in its sculpture like design. Vitra currently manufactures the La Chaise in Germany.

Although it was designed in 1948 it was deemed to expensive for production until 1990. It has been produced in small numbers ever since.

The list price of the La Chaise is $8,855. It is unlikely that an original La Chaise would be available at a budget price, but if you see one jump on it.
