Designers: Charles and Ray Eames
It’s been called “working art” since first exhibited by Charles and Ray Eames in 1949 at the Detroit Institute of Arts. The Eames storage unit is available in three sizes and several configurations to provide the right level of storage and display for you.
Choose the storage unit alone or pair it with the complementary Eames desk unit to create a functional, fashionable home workspace.
The desk and storage units complement each other and provide ample storage, work, and display space. And with their industrial aesthetic and color options, they look as striking now as they did when first introduced in 1950.

Storage Units are 47 inches wide and 16 inches deep. Choose from three heights—20 ½, 32 ½, or 58 ½ inches high. Perfectly complementary to the Eames desk unit, the storage units feature cases, cabinets, and drawers in five configurations for endless storage options.
The neutral color scheme uses birch veneer with white and black accents to create a sleek, high-tech look. The bright color scheme uses red, blue, black, and white hardboard panels and surfaces that are reminiscent of a Mondrian painting.
The steel cross-supports and uprights give the units an industrial feel, and the dimpled plywood on cabinet fronts and plywood drawer fronts and shelves reinforce the furniture's mid-century modern appearance.
Uprights, cross-supports, and perforated panels are zinc-coated steel; drawer fronts and shelves are smooth plywood; side panels are painted hardboard; storage unit cabinet fronts are plywood molded to form round dimples. Nylon foot glides are easy on floors.
