I also love the Eames chairs just by virtue of the working processes they developed and what it meant for ID.
Lovegrove's chairs look nice on the screen but then don't work well in reality.
I don't like all of Philippe Starck's playful designs but I do like most of his chairs, and they are excellent.
Travelling through France's cities' is basically a living Starck chair exhibition
My favorites are the Eros chair:
Bubble Club (surprisingly comfortable)
It is made of wood-plastic composites, a great material innovation combining wood waste chips with polymers.
