Before & After: An Eames Lounge Knockoff, Transformed

Pin it button big

Ok, the Eames Lounge chair is a classic. Such a classic that there are plenty of copies, knockoffs, interpretations and "homages" to it floating around. Which, in the hands of a creative DIY-er can be even better than the original, since it frees you up to do whatever you fancy! Check out Ana's one-of-a-kind re-upholstery job…

Ana FOUND her knock-off lounger and paid $10 for the stool, so she felt good about making upgrades and changes. She covered the chair with a thrifted Guatemalan hammock and it looks fantastic and fresh - a great, unexpected choice.

She said it was easy and just took a few hours on the weekend— very impressive!
