    A Foundation for Modern Furniture Design

    George Nelson invented the concept of the family room. And with their exceptional comfort and enduring style, these chairs are perfect for yours.

    These Eames chairs are molded to fit the contours of the body, so sitting on this icon of modern design feels good. By molding thin sheets of lightweight veneer into gently curved shapes, Charles and Ray Eames managed to give a hard material a soft appearance and establish the foundation for the design of modern furniture. And with an added layer of upholstery on the seat and back, sitting in these chairs is a delightful experience. Add a layer of upholstery to enhance an already delightful sitting experience.

      Upholstery and Finish Choices

      These chairs can be upholstered in just about any fabric of you like. When upholstered, the chair's back and seat have exposed veneer on the back sides. Veneers are available in six wood finishes—white ash, ebonized ash, natural cherry, walnut, and santos palisander. Or you can have them in a richly grained birch veneer stained red.

    • Solid Construction

      Solid Construction

      The plywood has natural face veneers with hardwood inner plies and a five-ply seat and back, together with gracefully curved eight-ply legs. All of the veneers are obtained from sustainable sources. Natural rubber shock mounts absorb movement. The lounge chair is 26.5 inches high and has a more distinct slope than the dining chair.

    Best Design of the
    Century

    In 1999, in its Millennium issue, Time magazine named the chairs Best Design of the (20th) Century. Runner-up: a steam locomotive.

    Recognizing the Need

    It All Started with These Chairs

    The long and fruitful collaboration between Herman Miller and Charles and Ray Eames began in 1946 with these chairs. The molded plywood chairs were the couple's first attempt at creating a chair that didn't need upholstery to be comfortable and that could be mass produced easily. The result was their iconic chair, now offered with an option for an upholstered seat and back to suit individual tastes and comfort levels.


    How Far Could Wood Be Pushed?

    Not long after Charles and Ray were married, in 1941, they began experimenting with just how far wood as a material could be pushed. Playing around with a variety of wood-molding techniques, they made a number of discoveries that led to a commission from the U.S. Navy to develop plywood splints, stretchers, and glider shells used in World War II.

    Charles said that recognizing the need is the primary condition for design. With the war over and the post-war boom beginning, Charles and Ray recognized a need for furniture that was of high quality and affordable, and that could be used in a variety of ways in the rapidly changing average American home. And it occurred to them that the technology they had created for the Navy—molding wood using heat and pressure—could be adapted for furniture.

    Things Changed

    The introduction of the molded plywood chairs, with their lightweight, compound curves, and streamlined visual profile changed furniture design and manufacturing forever. Sculpting a seat and back that fit the contours of the human body, while using relatively inexpensive materials and mass production, the Eames team created a truly comfortable, not to mention revolutionary, chair that's as fresh in today's homes as when the soldiers came marching home from World War II.

    Plywood Furniture? Really?

    The American home changed dramatically after the war. The GI Bill allowed returning service members to get college degrees and better jobs, and most of those soldiers wanted a home of their own and a family. Among the many results of this movement were the baby boom and the extensive building of suburban homes, which needed to be furnished.

    Plywood was not a popular furniture material at the time—it was a building material. But Charles and Ray liked it because they believed it could be mass-produced using dimensionally shaped surfaces. They and their team experimented with plywood molding for years before perfecting the final process.
