Eames Lounger in jumbo corduroy inspired by Hugh Laurie's House

Posted on 24th July 2012 by Mark

As all those in the creative field will know, inspiration is never far away. The latest addition to our Eames Lounger collection reflects just this – a cream corduroy upholstered Eames chair inspired from an episode of House with Hugh Laurie! I saw the episode some weeks ago and noticed how wonderfully comfortable the jumbo padding looked, whilst the corduroy material provided the alternative approach that caught my eye, something we are always on the lookout for at Iconic.

The following day I popped into my trusted local upholsterers with the chair pads and discussed the project, showing them a few grainy stills from the show and asking if they could recreate what they saw.

A few short weeks later and the finished product stands before us – and what a beauty it is. The corduroy does in real life what I felt it did on the screen, breathing new life into a classic design whilst at the same time offering supreme comfort and eminent relaxation.
