The globally recognized Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman was introduced back in 1956 and has remained one of the most iconic pieces of modern furniture since. While the chair is available to purchase new, you can still come across them secondhand in a variety of conditions, from like new to RIP. Creative agency Reed Art Department (RAD) recently collaborated with furniture restoration company Parc to restore and customize three of the recovered mid-century classics with a custom gradient that goes from dark grey to white. With a nod to New York City asphalt and the visual play of early morning fog, the limited edition chairs feature rosewood shells with premium full grain leather that starts at its darkest by the headrest before transitioning to white on the ottoman. For an added pop, orange trim and buttons finish off the custom design.

The three limited edition RAD x Parc Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman designs are available at RAD Shop for $10,000 each.
