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!

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.

Through problem-solving research and design, the company seeks to develop innovative solutions to real needs in working, healing, learning, and living environments.

Herman Miller began in 1923 as a manufacturer of traditional residential furniture, became a leader in "modern" furniture in the 1930s and 1940s; developed lasting ties through the 1950s with legendary industrial designers who led the company in new directions; transformed the office furniture industry with the first panel system in the 1960s; invented and refined ergonomic work seating in the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s; reinvented the geometry of systems furniture in 2000, and is today the second largest office furniture company with customers and locations around the world.

George Nelson laid out five tenets of Herman Miller's design philosophy 50 years ago:

  • What you make is important.
  • Design is an integral part of the business.
  • The product must be honest.
  • You decide what you will make.
  • There is a market for good design.

While fashion and style have their place, the main criterion for a Herman Miller product has remained constant: Does it truly solve a problem that people care about in a way that improves upon other solutions, or pioneers a new and better answer altogether? The answer is Yes.
