Soft Pad ‘Billy Wilder’ Chaise by Charles & Ray Eames


Soft Pad ‘Billy Wilder’ Chaise by Charles & Ray Eames

The Eames soft pad chaise is perfect for taking a nap. It is very comfortable with its two loose cushions, one of them supporting your neck, the other your calves, yet it is so narrow that your arms will fall off your chest when you get into a deeper sleep, waking you up after exactly enough sleep to be freshened up. The chaise was designed for film director and Eames friend Billy Wilder.
In 1955, while on location shooting in Nova Scotia for the feature film The Spirit of St. Louis, Wilder took an afternoon nap in a lighthouse on an improvised bench: a 6-foot-by-12-inch plank resting on two sawhorses. Wilder remarked at the time that he needed a narrow office couch on which he could take brief afternoon naps. Charles Eames remembered the conversation, and with Wilders’ requirements in mind, the Eames Office began work several years later on the Chaise.
