The lithe chairs of the Eames Aluminum Group have been a popular design since their introduction in 1958, and it’s no wonder. The graceful silhouette sits equally well in all kinds of home and workplace interiors. A wide range of material options allows a personalized look that, with its distinctive form, provides a statement of enduring design excellence wherever they are placed.
The Eames Chaise is soft, comfortable, and just 18 inches wide. When you lie on it, you naturally fold your arms over your chest. Should you doze off, your arms soon fall to your sides, waking you up. It’s a beautiful place to relax for a spell in a study, den, or executive office.
These desk and storage units complement each other, and each can stand alone. They provide ample storage, work, and display space. And at home or in the office, they look as striking now as they did when first introduced in 1950.
Comfort comes first with the Eames Executive Chair. Its seat has 4-1/2-inch-thick foam cushions; the back cushions are 3 inches thick. Armrests are well padded.
Adjustable seat height, tilt-swivel mechanism, and a five-star base add to the comfort. Available with casters or glides, the chairs can work well in a conference room, board room, conversation area, or behind a desk.
When the set was introduced in 1956, there was nothing like it, and there is still nothing to equal it. The Eameses’ modern take on a nineteenth century club chair has not only endured for more than 50 years, it has become one of the most significant furniture designs of the twentieth century—instantly recognizable and enduringly fresh.
Eames Molded Plastic Chairs are available as side chairs or armchairs, and in a choice of colors, including archival or new options. Armchair and side chair shells can be fully upholstered in a variety of textiles; side chair shells can be specified with an upholstered seat pad. A choice of bases rounds out your customization options.
Designers Charles and Ray Eames established their long and legendary relationship with Herman Miller in 1946 with their boldly original molded plywood chairs. The aesthetic integrity, enduring charm, and comfort of the chairs earned them recognition from Time magazine as The Best Design of the 20th Century. Time called the design “something elegant, light and comfortable. Much copied but never bettered.” (A locomotive came in second.)
Charles and Ray Eames applied the same breakthrough technology that resulted in their famous molded plywood chairs to create the simple, lightweight, imaginative Eames Molded Plywood Coffee Table Wood Base in 1946. The Eames Molded Plywood Coffee Table Metal Base features the same dimpled top supported by slim metal legs.
With its emphasis on beautiful materials and simplified forms, the Eames sofa exemplifies the best in modern furniture design. Its angled profile and clean planes showcase a harmonious combination of rich walnut or teak, soft leather, and polished aluminum. Equally fitting for the contemporary home or office, it’s a luxurious place to settle back and relax.
Why “compact” for a sofa that’s six feet wide and seats three? The clean profile of the Eames sofa compact is perfectly scaled for spaces too small for a traditional sofa—in executive suites, lounges, and homes. But you lose none of the comfort associated with the word couch. Impact and seating space in a sleek, slender, minimalist piece of classic mid-century furniture.
