An etymological study of furniture related language reveals some interesting pieces of trivia. The word chairman came about because only important people, like aristocrats or landed gentry, were privileged enough to have chairs. Everyone else was forced to sit on benches, stools, and even the floor. Another linguistic oddity related to furniture is that the word couch from an Old French term that means, to recline.
Reclining is an activity that is well enjoyed by someone who owns an Eames lounge chair. The Eames loungers are examples of high end designer chairs that are just as comfortable as they are beautiful to behold. The Eames lounge chair is a triumph of both form and function.
