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.

Introduced in 1958 as a special project by Ray Eames for a private residence being designed by Eero Saarinen and Alexander Girard, the Eames Aluminum Group originally was specified as ''leisure furniture''. Now used in numerous locations, their classic lines and comfortable suspension have kept them in demand for numerous years and spaces, from contemporary homes to elegant offices and hip startups. The Design Aluminum Group chairs were originally developed in 1958 as a special project by Ray Eames for a private residence being designed by Eero Saarinen and Alexander Girard., At the time, the furniture was called the ''leisure group'' or ''indoor-outdoor group'' since it was meant to address the lack of quality outdoor furniture on the market, The seat-back suspension was a major technical achievement and represented a departure from the concept of the chair as a solid shell, Wonderfully comfortable, the chairs became the basis for several other Eames designs, including the Soft Pad chairs.

    “Hi, what is the difference between all grain leather and dream cow leather?” asked by Ben

    "Hi Ben, All Grain Leather has a medium size pebble pattern in the leather and is very durable. It is very resistant to weather and it is recommended for high traffic areas. Dream Cow Leather is a butter soft leather and its pebble pattern is slightly larger. It is reccommended for a home office." Lauren from Wayfair

    Herman Miller ® Eames Aluminum Group Management Chair


    Classic design, pricey but worth it

     from Washington, DC– Verified Buyer

    Timeless, classic design. The original is expensive, but well worth the price. Note that this takes a month to two to ship, so plan ahead. Also worth waiting for the twice-annual 15% Herman Miller sales. I actually got two of these chairs, one in mesh and one in leather - find the leather actually more supportive but mesh more breathable.

    Nice conference room chair

     from Washington, DC

    This is a great classic conference room chair for occasional use, but theyre not very comfortable to sit in for more than an hour. I would not want one at my desk, but they do look great in our conference room.

    All Time Classic Chair

     from Boston, MA– Top 50 Reviewer

    Im sitting this this chair as I type. This is an amazingly well built time-less chair. Mine is in green vinyl. I will say that for the first couple days after it was out of the box the vinyl smelled a bit strong (like a new car). But that is completely gone now. These are well build and take a lot of abuse wether in a home of office environment.

    Be aware of cheep knock-offs, the metal, screws, caster and materials in general are very inferior. We have one at the office for comparison and it is scary.

    Manufacturer Details
    Herman Miller: The name is synonymous with innovation, design, operational excellence, smart application of technology, and social responsibility. Herman Miller, Inc. studies work and living environments and designs and delivers products and services that make these environments work better. 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. Their history of employee participation and ownership and technological innovation has long roots and continues to grow. They have always worked hard to be serious about both people and business. They look at their primary goal as creating great places to work.

    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.
