Designers: Charles and Ray Eames
A classic piece of mid-century furniture. The first mass-produced plastic chair. And as stylish today as it was when it was designed in 1948. A multitude of color choices can be combined with a base in chrome or black and rockers in maple or walnut.
True to the original, but now made with eco-friendly materials, the Eames molded plastic armchair is what it has always been—an art object for your home that is also comfortable, useful, and durable.
It looks nothing like a traditional rocking chair, but it feels just as good. The rocker base is one of the original base styles. It’s a comfortable chair for the nursery, living room, family room, or wherever you like to relax or read.
Fulfilling the goals of every modern designer.Charles and Ray Eames View Design Story
As beloved today as when it was first introduced in 1948, the Eames molded plastic armchair features organic shapes and sleek lines. The first one-piece plastic chair offered without upholstery or other covering, it achieved a pervasive presence that proves the staying power of good design. It sits beautifully in many places in the home and in all kinds of décor.
Charles and Ray Eames believed that comfort was as important as looks. So comfort is built in. The shell seats have high, flexible backs, deep seat pockets, and waterfall front edges so you can sit comfortably even for extended periods.
Originally produced in only three neutral colors—greige, elephant-hide grey, and parchment—the chair is now available in 10 colors that range from vibrant to subtle, either chrome or black base, and rockers in maple or walnut.
Shells are made of polypropylene—which is 100 percent recyclable. The plating process used for our trivalent chrome finish reduces environmental and health issues associated with other forms of chrome plating.
