5 Iconic Designer Chairs You Should Consider Purchasing


From the Louis XIV to the Monobloc, these seats stand the test of time.
As long as people have been furnishing homes, they’ve been designing (and shopping for) chairs to go in them. And, over the course of this long history, certain perches stand (or should we say, sit!) out as timeless classics, referred to time and time again as the cycle of design continues. From antique pieces that inspired modern interpretations to original designs that remain as popular today as when they were first introduced, these 5 chairs are the ones that have made the biggest impact on design history.

1. Charles and Ray Eames Eames Lounge Chair

While the Eameses are best known for their efforts to create inexpensive furniture pieces that could be easily mass-produced, their now-ubiquitous lounge chair and ottoman were the couple’s take on luxury. They endeavored to create the most comfortable chair possible, one that had the warm, worn feel of a “well-used first baseman’s mitt.” Herman Miller released the seat in 1956 in wood and black leather; it’s now available in a slew of upholstery and finish options and continues to appear in interiors around the world.

2. Ludwig Mies van der Rohe Barcelona Chair

When tasked with furnishing the German pavilion at the 1929 Barcelona International Exposition, German-American architect Mies van der Rohe conceived a chair fit for royalty — but in keeping with his modernist aesthetic. The leather-and-chrome seat (and accompanying ottoman) have been produced ever since. Homio's Barcelona repro has stood the test of time and its beauty and elegance have been purchased all over USA.
