I've always been a fan of the Paulistano chairs.

There was an episode of grand designs where an elderly couple built a Huf House and had a pair of Eames Lounge in the living room.
I believe I happened to pass by a television while this episode was on. Looked like the house was in upstate NY? Looked awful. The chairs were the only seating in a very large room. To my mind, I'd go with theater seating before I'd go with multiple eames recliners.

The key to double eames (or best, quadruple eames) is a single ottoman shared between them.
You need to poast more. I need to poast less.

Grand Designs is a British show...

1:41 is the money shot. Not nearly as horrible as one would imagine, but not great.

It's weird that they had the house custom built, knew they were going to use those sofas, and then didn't provide a proper amount of space for them. I'd get it if they were working with what they found, but they had the house built for them. See 2:15.

Big ups to FlyingMonkey for finding this.

Edited for timestamps.

I've always been a fan of the Paulistano chairs.

I like the look, however, I've found that most chairs with leather seats hung from tubing create a "U" shaped spot for your butt that holds you firmly in place rather than an easy, comfortable pivot. In a living area I want the ability to have more flexible movement, sliding in and out of a chair and pivoting from side to side. So something more along the lines of a Barcelona chair rather than a Wassily, or Corbusier LC2 (although I very much love the look of the classic LC2). I don't apply this functional standard to all chairs in my home. Only the ones in the more active, social living areas.

I don't love that the two chairs have different color leather...

If you like the look of the lc2, but also like to move around. That’s what the lc3 is for.

Sadly my wife hates them.

It's SOOOOO expensive, but I keep going back to the Paulin pacha chairs for the pair of living room chairs I've been looking for. No doubt not the most consensual choice but they have that weirdly charming, inviting vibe that makes me smile.

They're certainly whimsical. Most important thing is they speak to you.

I was just flipping channels and noticed this wonderful use of multiple Eames loungers...

I love those. Do they spin? They'd be a lot of fun if they did. I like the joining pillow:
