Desire/Acquire: Eames Aluminum Management Chair

Designed in 1958 by Charles and Ray Eames, the Eames Aluminum Management Chair ($2,299) is a revolutionary task chair that changed the face of office design. Its subtle shape and smart leather conforms to the body's shape, proving that comfort and aesthetics can exist simultaneously at a desk. The Eameses were some of the first designers to utilize affordable aluminum to create a lightweight, corrosion-resistant frame, and today the chair maintains its popularity, for those who can afford it. Unfortunately, that's a bit of a problem, as the price doesn't sit well with many! To hear where you can snatch up the next best thing,


You'll be hard-pressed to notice a difference between the Eames original and this Crate & Barrel Ripple Leather Office Chair ($259). This chair takes the business of ergonomics seriously and shares the looks and function of the Eames chair, but it'll cost you a fraction of the price. But when it comes to paperwork, that task is up to you!

Funny, I have seen these but had no idea they were an Eames ripoff.

I love the way these chairs look, but they're not so comfortable to work in for 10 hours a day. Maybe when I have my super library, I'll have one there for show.
