Nov 07, 2016 | By Vimi Haridasan

Marking 60 years since it was first introduced to the world, the Eames Lounge Chair from Swiss furniture manufacturer Vitra, is back. This time, the creation by Charles and Ray Eames comes in a fabric-upholstered limited edition called the Lounge Chair Twill.

The chair took its inspiration from the English club chair, albeit with a few additional touches. The result was a leather-upholstered chair that was light, modern, soft and comfortable. While the manufacturer has produced the chair exclusively in leather since 1959, this year Vitra will offer a limited edition of the chair and ottoman covered in a twill fabric.

The Lounge Chair Twill will be offered in the classic color combination of black with dark-reddish palisander wood. Each of the fabric-covered Lounge Chair Twill and Ottoman’s will come with a “60 Years in Production” certificate and will be marked with a corresponding label. The chairs will be available from selected Vitra dealers till January 31.
