i love the bent rose wood shell, and leather (or vinyl) are my favorite upholstery choices. in search of a great lounge chair for me, i like an ottoman chair combination. this is a great chair, but…
the leather is dark (black, usually), and it has a masculine look. i want a chair that will hold up outdoors, under a porch, but still out in the humidity, in florida. herman miller does make an aluminum lounge chair with ottoman, which they expect to be used outdoors.
again, it has a decidedly masculine look. not as soft. this one sells for $1,928.00, new. (click on the picture to link).
here is part 2 of the introduction of the 1956 eames lounge chair. note that a man is sitting in it, in the advert, and the woman is perched prettily on the footstool….. nice picture, but i want to lounge some too! (and i don’t think i perch so prettily…and not much perching at all, now that i think about it.)
