    Ah the retro & modernization look…not a fan of it. I love wood, traditional, sculpture, lines & details, plus textiles and lots over this selected chair/ottoman. It has to be comfortable and this chair does give you that.

    I guess thinking seriously about how this style is more offensive for me and why?

    The obvious and complete divergence of itself with it's contrast & opposing features. Every element is a overt contrast with it and they do not fit well together for me. Surfaces, colors, textures, & appearances as they are here. I didn't care for this style years ago, when it first arrived along with obscure, odd shapes, being loud, obnoxious and out of balance themes forced to fit into spaces and seated uncomfortably. Unique, unusual shapes thrown in for their newness without elegant dressings or details along with the full onset of plastic back then and since then.
    Thanks, you allowed me to think of the "why" I don't like this style much, with it's going against the grain.

    While I love modern design, the Eames lounge chair is a little too slick for my taste — I do think it looks better in brown leather, especially broken in like this one:

    One furniture piece by Eames I wouldn't mind having is this versatile folding screen:

    It even comes in a number of finish options, and would fit into any design style quite nicely!

    Yes It is an eye sore, but I bet is comfortable and sometimes you have to compromise.
