    Alex, Sure, they're easy to find, and are even still being made new! Search eBay for 'eames aluminum' (technically I think these are called "Eames Aluminum Group Lounge" chairs, but searching for 'lounge' tends to return mostly the bent-plywood & tufted-black-leather ones with ottomans, which IIRC are called simply 'Eames Lounge'). The Aluminum Group ones are available with or without arms, in the low-back (non-'lounge') form, and even in 'square-padded' (Time-Life?) versions. I don't know about the new ones, but the vintage ones were available in many, many different cloth or vinyl colors, and because they used commercial contract-grade material, they wear like iron.
