Like buying a large television set, an Eames Lounge Chair is a big purchase that requires some knowledge into the technicalities of the product before making the big buy. To ensure the utmost satisfaction with the lounge chair of your choosing, it is best to examine certain aspects of the chair before making your buy. Retailers of Eames chair reproductions often assert how similar the chair is to the original model. Despite the similarity between different reproductions, there may be hidden snags that lessen the durability of the chair. Or, there could be qualities that make the chair lacking. Below are some questions you should be pondering when looking at Eames chair replicas and models.
An important question to consider, as some Eames Lounge chairs have cushions sewn onto the body of the chair or the ottoman. Manhattan Home Design’s Eames Lounge Chair & Ottoman set have pillows that can be easily removed from the seat and the ottoman. What’s best is they are interchangeable, given that they both come in the same size of 32 ¾ “ x 21 ½.” Thus, if you feel you’ve tampered with the elevation of the seat, you can switch it with the one atop the ottoman and vice versa.
Comfort comes from cushioning that is able to revive after having pressure set upon it, which is vital for the entire cushioned area: the seat, the ottoman and the inner body of the chair. Our cushions are breathable, with air inlets lining the chair. With the entrance of more air, the cushions become equipped with a greater retention of their original shape. Additionally, the breathable quality protects against mold and residue buildup.
The foam inside our chairs is of the highest caliber memory foam. This injected foam has an impressive shelf-life of over 20 years. Memory foam is the best filling material for long-lasting chairs, as it is this material that is most responsible for shape retention. Memory foam slips into the position of your body, so you will never be in conflict with it. The foam moves with the shape of your body and when you get up or remove something from the chair, the cushion will return to its original shape, without any disturbances.
Manhattan Home Design enforces a hand-stitched piping along all the edges of the chair. An intricate method, albeit completely worth the quality attribute, our stitching features 1’2 inch of real leather stitched by hand. The piping is composed of 400 stitches with buttons that are also handmade and of genuine leather. It is sewn with metal clasps to hold the leather in a firm position for a final touch. Not every lounge chair is made with such a labor of love.
The recline of our lounge chair reaches a slick 15° angle for a true lounging experience. This allows you to literally sit back as the sit back, relax maxim suggests. A 15° is the mathematical degree for harmony in the incline of the back, as it is not too low, nor too high a reclining position. This makes for the optimal lounging experience.
