The idea for the ES106 Soft Pad Chaise came from a long-standing friend of the Eameses, film director Billy Wilder, who was looking for a recliner for relaxing in and taking short rests. Six cushions joined together with zips are attached to the aluminium frame and there are two loose cushions for extra support, making this one of the most comfortable and iconic pieces of furniture around.

Charles & Ray Eames are one of modern design's most recognisable partnerships. Born in the early part of the 20th Century Charles and Ray Eames married in 1941 and moved to Los Angeles, where together they began experimenting with techniques for the three-dimensional moulding of plywood. The aim was to create comfortable chairs that were affordable.
Playful and fun, the Eames' had a great energy that lives through their iconic products today. "Take your pleasure seriously" was a favourite saying of Charles Eames.
