About the Designer
Charles & Ray Eames Charles & Ray Eames United States 

Charles Ormond Eames, Jr (1907–1978) and Bernice Alexandra "Ray" (née Kaiser) Eames (1912–1988) were American designers, who worked in and made major contributions to modern architecture and furniture. They also worked in the fields of industrial and graphic design, fine art and film.

Abstract chess pieces. Small tables. Low seats. The beauty of the Eames Walnut Stools is that they are all of these, quite surprising when you consider that their original purpose was to adorn a specific lobby in a specific structure – the 1960 Time-Life Building in New York City. Several pieces of solid walnut, turned to create interesting shapes, laminated and pinned together, give these stools a satisfying heft. The Design Ray Eames drew on her training as a sculptor to design a new kind of occasional piece for the lobby of the Time-Life Building in New York City. Eames walnut stools became her favorite seats and were liberally scattered about the Charles and Ray Eames home in Pacific Palisades. A museum curator once ordered two of these stools for his son and daughter. ''Graduation gifts?'' he was asked. ''No,'' he said, ''the kids are only five and three. But I want them to have the experience of growing up with something truly good that they can keep all their lives.''

Herman Miller ® Eames ® Walnut Stool


Expensive stool, but beautiful

 from Wesley Chapel, FL– Verified Buyer

I have 2 out of 3 of these stools (A and C). I love the look, feel, and weight of them. I think these are a great classic design piece, but a bit expensive. If you have $850 to blow on a stool then go for it!

Great everything!

 from Toronto, ON– Verified Buyer

This stool is not just a stool, it is a little table, an extra seat and an art piece all in one. Such a great addition to a room. I kept wanting see this stool more so we own several of them now.
