    • Design Staying Power

      Design Staying Power

      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 remains that way, in keeping with the designers' appreciation of honest industrial materials.

      The chair has 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.

    • Classic Comfort

      Classic Comfort

      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.

      Adjustable glides keep the four legs steady and level on uneven floors. The standard glide is also available with felt to protect hard-surface floors.

    • Color Variety

      Colorful Variety

      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, and either chrome or black base.

    • Good for the Earth

      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.
