The Value of Comfortable Longevity

Replicas of the Eames Lounge Chair have flooded the market, making it difficult for someone to tell the difference between one version or the other. Even the "original" is an imitation of the iconic chair designed by Charles and Ray Eames. However, there are many features that can show the craftsmanship, care and materials put into furniture, separating a quality reproduction from a cheap "knock-off."

The Rove Eames Lounge Chair is undoubtedly a high end reproduction of the licensed furniture piece. In fact, it's hard to tell the difference, from the overall appearance all the way down to the type of padding. It's something very different from the competitors, who will often cut corners to get the lowest price. Rove uses 100% full grain Aniline leather handpicked from Tuscany, Italy. Instead of wearing out, it will develop a natural patina over time. The same grade is used throughout the chair, including the buttons. The leather is used generously on the seats, creating deep cushions and tufted appearance. There is a flush fit between the cushions and the frame of the chair. The padding also sets the chair apart from lower quality imitations. Since it is made of PU-injected foam covered with dacron, it will stay comfortable and not misshapen over time. And while all the measurements are the same as the original, every chair is unique; the frames are all made of real wood veneer sourced exclusively from Canadian, American and Brazilian companies. Longevity is key - the leather ages beautifully, the shape of the padding won't flatten, the wood is treated to prevent warping and even the cushions can be removed.

The Rove Eames Lounge Chair is a practical long-term investment. It really shows that luxury can be affordable.
