My Wife And I Still Don’t Have Our Herman Miller Eames Lounge Chair, Yet They’re Marketing Child-Sized Versions

designer furniture for your children... small versions of furniture you can't afford

Edit: Please see the first comment below for clarification on this post.

I’ve been eyeing an Eames lounge chair and ottoman for about 5 years now but haven’t been able to justify the purchase of one. One day, I keep telling myself… one day I’ll have one in the living room.

Well, it seems that some children don’t have to wait for “One day” as you can now buy child-sized versions of Eames and other designer furniture. On the one hand I look at this and think, ‘ that’s soo cool’ and on the other I seethe with jealous rage.

I suppose that if I can’t afford the original I could hopefully buy a pint-sized version and position it carefully in the room to downplay its size.

  1. Just came across your post and wanted to correct a misunderstanding–HM is not offering “child-size” editions of our classic designs (Eames, Nelson, Noguchi, Girard, etc.), only the original designs/scale as we’ve been producing for 50 plus years. The link you offer references Eames incorrectly, but does clarify that it’s Knoll only–which has never had the designs of Eames, Nelson, etc. Anyway, just an FYI.
