My wife surprised me with one a couple years ago for our anniversary. I was looking for a new, comfortable reading/TV chair for my office and initially liked the looks of the Eames lounge chairs, until I sat in one. I must be one of the only people who doesn't think they're all that comfortable.I just bit the bullet and bought an eames for my study. I have always loved the look and it will work well in there. I also find it pretty comfortable for a reading chair. Now I just need to find the right side table and lamp. My wife happens to find the chair hideous but as long as it is in my office she doesnt have to look at it *shrug*.
Anyway, I probably should have told her (at some point BEFORE our anniversary) that I had changed my mind! Oops. On the rare occasion she actually spends any time in my office, she likes to sit in it and thinks it's comfortable. Most of the time the ottoman becomes a repository for mail and stacks of magazines (that I read at my desk). It's a very nice looking chair, though. I appreciated the thought, but another watch or a new set of golf clubs would have been put to better use. LOL.
