Soft Pad Chaise

Charles & Ray Eames, 1968

The idea for the design of the Soft Pad Chaise came from a longtime friend of Charles and Ray Eames, the film director Billy Wilder, who was in search of a recliner for taking short naps or for resting on during breaks between film shoots. Six cushions joined with zippers are attached to the aluminium frame, and two loose cushions provide extra comfort.
