Relax, Dad

Finding the perfect lounge chair for Father’s Day.



The Eames® Lounge Chair and Ottoman

With Father’s Day approaching, help dad relax with an amazing, stress-relieving, back-fixing, problem-solving, dream-inducing lounge chair (not all, if any, of these results guaranteed)

The Eames® Lounge Chair and Ottoman

Designed by Charles and Ray Eames for Herman Miller®, Starting at $4,559 (above)

No architect’s home is complete without one (does it actually come with the degree?). The Eames Lounge Chair is a modern classic. Aside from its beauty, it is extraordinarily comfortable. The fill and leather are so soft you can’t help but breathe a sigh of relief as you settle in. This chair will not only thrill dad with its comfort but he’ll be impressed that it’s an investment that holds it’s value.

LaFuma Futura Clipper Lounge Chair, $190

The LaFuma Futura Clipper Lounge Chair folds flat and weighs only 18 lbs. It can go anywhere. In the backyard, camping or even at a soccer game. When fully reclined, the mesh fabric feels like a cozy hammock. Move the adjustable pillow into place and badda bing, dad’s set! The chair also comes in extra long and with additional accessories, like a mini desk and drink holder.

Sedgwick Recliner, $749

The Sedgwick Recliner’s simple lines and good looks will satisfy any couple’s squabbles over traditional versus modern. Plus this chair hardly looks like a recliner when upright so it doesn’t need to be banished to the man cave. Leather is an option if you want to add a little more gravitas (and if you want to add to the budget, approximately $500 more).

Togo Chair, $1,860

The only thing to fear about the Ligne Roset Togo chair is that dad will never get up! The low seat platform with foam interior and rippled back beckons him to kick back and relax. The Togo line ranges from the Fireside Chair (pictured below) to a longer Lounge Chair, plus there’s an ottoman, loveseat and sofa. With all the options available, everyone in the family can have a comfy seat!
