I was window shopping with hubby in Pacific Place Hong Kong when I saw the Eames Lounge Chair showcased in Lane Crawford’s window. I was introduced to the chair on Fraiser (my favorite TV series) and did not understand why Fraiser kept on saying it was a work of art as it did not seem particularly attractive. But I was completely wrong.
Once I sat down on the Eames Lounge Chair, I was hooked. I never sat on a chair so comfortable. Historically, lounge chairs and I never got along because it is mainly designed for the average man. However, sitting on the Eames was akin to resting on a cloud. In the future, I hope to place the Eames chair the way Fraiser has it in his apartment. It would be the perfect place to read my books. Hubby agrees as he always liked the look of the chair and finds it super comfortable as well.
The only thing we did not like was the cost. Lane Crawford priced at an eye watering $58,000HKD which is around $7,465USD! What made the sticker shock even worse is that the exact same chair costs around $3500 in the US. It is a prime example of how quality goods is twice as expensive in Hong Kong compared to New York. This is why I am dreaming of the US all the time. Nothing seems expensive anymore after Hong Kong prices.
