Durable Classic
Totally loving the 4 shell chairs I have for dining chairs. I got 4 different color options and they look great together. Just wish they could have been shipped stacked two in one box to save some cardboard and hassle.

Great dining chair for kids!
I recently replaced my upholstered dining room chairs with 7 Eames Plastic Chairs with Wire Bases. I have three little kids that are hard on chairs with spilling, etc. These chairs are awesome since they're light and incredibly easy to clean. I use a damp cloth to wipe them down and they're as good as new. I highly recommend these chairs!

The perfect little side chair!
I just got myself one of these for my apartment. I already have a very comfortable Eames management chair at my desk but I needed something as a secondary chair for my room. The chair is light, solid, stylish, and comfortable! The back flexes with your movement and it really has a nice feel. It is exactly what I was looking for!

Cleaning White Chairs

I have 6 white Eames Molded Plastic Side Chairs. After a year of use, and wiping them down weekly with a mild detergent, soft cloth.. the seat of each chair looks grey and blotchy. Is there a safe way to deep clean these? thanks
A shopper on May 17, 2015
Best Answer: Suggested Cleaners for Water-based Spills, Spots, and Stains, we recommend the following:

-Ultra Ivory Dish Liquid (Classic)
-Tide Powder Detergent Original unscented; diluted in water (1 tablespoon per 1 cup warm water).
-Simple Green All Purpose Cleaner

Is the Eames white plastic side chair with black base frame finish (wire base) rated for outdoors use?

I plan to use the plastic side chair with black finish wire base outdoors in the summer only, so it would be exposed to rain and sun for 3 or 4 months per year. Is the chair suitable for this type of outdoor use?
A shopper on Jun 29, 2015
Best Answer: None of the Eames Molded Plastic chairs are rated for outdoor use in any finish. Warranty does not cover damages from outdoor use.
