I could not get agreement on the domestic front over the Eames, in fact she does not really like the looks of these either, but then I got her to sit in them and that sold her. They truly are extremely comfy, seem solidly built, and the leather is very nice. We are playing with arrangement that varies but I think will end up with hers near the fireplace and mine on the far side of hers further from the fireplace with both facing a three seater sofa across an area rug and an occasional table between the two chairs. Basically we'll sit side by side with views of the fireplace and out our big bank of windows. Pricing was not bad with the showroom tag at 2k but I was able to land them for 1.4k each.
