Designers: Charles and Ray Eames
A classic piece of mid-century furniture. As stylish and useful today as when it was designed in 1950. A multitude of color choices can be paired with either a chrome or black base.
True to the original, but now made with eco-friendly materials, the Eames molded plastic side chair is what it has always been—an art object for your home that is also comfortable and durable.
The organic shape and sophisticated lines of this chair, with the streamlined "Eiffel Tower" wire base, work anywhere—in the dining area, living room, family room, home office. Sit back and relax—comfort is built in.
Fulfilling the goals of every modern designer.Charles and Ray Eames View Design Story
Charles Eames and architect Eero Saarinen explored the first iterations of a single-shell chair in molded plywood in 1939. By the 1940s, Charles and his wife and design partner Ray began experimenting with their own plywood-molding techniques. Along the way, their efforts yielded lightweight, stackable leg splints (1942) as well as a glider seat (1943) for the U.S. Navy during World War II.
The Eames molded plastic side chair features organic shapes and sleek lines. Originally offered without upholstery or other covering, it remains that way, in keeping with the designers' appreciation of honest industrial materials.
The shell seats have high, flexible backs, deep seat pockets, and waterfall front edges so you can sit comfortably even for extended periods.
The side chair is available in 10 colors that range from vibrant to subtle, and either a chrome or black finish.
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.
