Ask any modern homeowner what their dream chair is, and chances are it’s an Eames Chair by iconic, midcentury-modern designers Charles and Ray Eames. And with the most coveted pieces like the Eames Lounge and Ottoman selling at US$4,960 online at Design Within Reach, owning the chair remains a dream for most of us (though their plastic Eiffel Chair sells at a decent, low five-digit-price tag locally at CWC Interiors).

But now you can own an original Eames for only P590—because our favorite basic clothing store Uniqlo has recently launched an Eames line of Men’s T-Shirts under their SPRZ NY collection. The T-shirts are printed with graphics of iconic Eames furniture pieces, like the Eames Wire Chair:

And of course, they have the famous Eames Lounge and Ottoman, deconstructed here to show how well thought out and intricate its construction is:


The Eames Lounge and Ottoman is one of the most iconic modern furniture pieces, because it was created using technology that was considered groundbreaking at that time, such as molded plywood. Here is the chair with the Eameses’ fiberglass La Chaise lounger:

Charles’ wife Ray Eames was an artist, and she produced several fabric designs, like this Dot Pattern seen on a black T-shirt:
