Eames lounge chair

The Eames Lounge Chair is, without a doubt, one of the most mesmerizing design feats. But to enjoy it to its fullest potential, proper assembly is required.

When you purchase your Eames Lounge Chair Replica from Manhattan Home Design, you can choose from two different assembly options. Full assembly by one of our in-house experts for an extra payment of $199, or 90% assembled for the regular price.

If you opt to assemble you Eames Lounge Chair on your own, you’ll receive a three-piece kit that is so easy you’ll have it set up in no time. 

Here is a 5-step guide to help you through the assembly process.

1- Open the box correctly. Make sure the box is facing upwards. Imagine the inconvenience of finding yourself with a new Eames Lounge Chair with structural damage due to opening the box inadequately.

2- Unpack carefully. The first thing you’ll see when opening the box is the chair’s base. Go ahead and place it where you want your Eames Lounge Chair to go. Doing so makes it easier to avoid scratching or breaking, so take your time to choose the right spot.

3- Adjust the chair’s base to the seat. Install the adjacent rod to the chair’s base. Attach the base with the seat in an upside-down fashion.

Pro tip: It’s easier to join the base and seat while the seat is still in the box. Once both parts are connected, you can remove the seat from the box and place it on the floor.

4- Take every remaining piece out from the box. For your convenience, the hinges are already installed. All that’s left to do is some light screwing, and you’ll be resting on your new Eames in no time. First, tighten the backrest followed by the armrests. Remember the importance of doing this with the chair already on the floor!

5- Carefully place the armrests on the sides and screw the hinges. Make sure the back of the chair is well adjusted with some slight reclining. It the armrests don’t fit right away, don’t panic. All you need to do is push the back of the chair a little until you can insert the screws correctly.

Now you’re finished setting up your new Eames Lounge Chair in your home. It will surely feel much better knowing that you were able to set it up yourself. So sit back, relax, and enjoy the ultimate lounging experience at home.
