Herman Miller ® Eames DSR - Molded Plastic Side Chair with Wire Base

Charles and Ray Eames adapted molding techniques developed during World War II to mass produce this classic design. Today's Molded Plastic Chairs are true to the originals and are fully authentic, with updated materials to meet environmental requirements. Charles and Ray Eames, always interested in new materials, saw in plastic the chance to form organic seat shells that conform to the body's shape. The enduring forms and quality construction make the Molded Plastic Chairs - available here with a classic Eames wire base - comfortable, durable performers....New materials, especially those that held promise for doing more with less, fascinated Charles and Ray Eames throughout their careers. Their fascination led to inventive modern furniture, such as the Molded Plastic Chair. Designed in 1948, it was the first plastic chair to be mass produced....The current models look exactly the same as the originals. They remain un-upholstered, in keeping with the Eameses requirement that materials be expressed honestly and un-self consciously. In fact, these were the first one-piece plastic chairs to be left uncovered At the same time, the chairs are better than ever. For example, the shell is now manufactured using more environmentally friendly, high-impact plastic.

Iconic

Suzanne from Altadena, CA– Verified Buyer

These are classic, iconic chairs that blend in with so many types of decor. The only reason I didn't give it five stars is because I paid $18 extra per chair for the felt pads. I thought it would be something special, but it's not. They're just little circlular felt pads that you could buy at a big box store and put on yourself with a little bit of super glue for extra strength. (I did that before with some other chairs.) Also, they weren't all put on exactly right. Some of the pads are hanging over the edge, and you can see them. The pads are not worth $18 per chair! Install them yourself. You will save a lot of money and I'm sure you'll put them on correctly.

Oh beautiful chair...

aileen from lafayette, LA– Verified Buyer

This chair is a design classic. Beautifully made.

From the time is was delivered to the moment I sat on it was less than a minute : instructions open box, lift out chair, gasp at beauty, sit down.

It is the final touch in my studio.

Great Price and Fast Delivery

Teck-Hwa from KANSAS CITY, MO– Verified Buyer

Don't have to comment much about the quality or design of these chairs, they are Eames after all. I'm very impressed by the AllModern as these chairs arrived in original Herman Miller boxes less than a week. I almost bought the chairs from DWR but decided against it when I found out that AllModern offers the same authentic Eames chairs with no sale tax, free shipping and rebates in purchases. I am definitely a very satisfied customer.

Classic and Comfortable

Katie from Wenonah, NJ– Verified Buyer

We bought this chair in white for our kitchen table. We plan on buying the molded plastic Arm Eames chairs for each end of the table.The Eames style is functional and looks wonderful in my kitchen. If you are on the fence about buying this style chair, know that they are classic and will never go out of style.

Eames side chair

Bonnie from Los Angeles , CA– Verified Buyer

Comfortable for most. Those without much padding on their posterior need a padded seat cushion as an option. The casters are noisy when some guests move their seat. I need to attach a pad to the casters to remedy this situation. Easy to clean. Fit the room and can be used wherever extra seats are needed.

love them

Ido from Seattle, WA– Verified Buyer

Love these chairs, which we use as dining chairs with a wood dining table.

PROS:
- easy to clean
- look great
- comfortable
- light and a low profile
- one of the chairs had a defect and allmodern replaced it asap.

CONS:
- small children flip them easily
- the legs aren't balanced so they teeter, although felt feet mostly eliminate the issue

Great chairs - classic design

DB from Milton, TN– Verified Buyer

There is a reason these chairs have been around so long - they are a classic design, comfortable, and fit any area. We are very pleased with the chairs we purchased. Shipping was very fast - they arrived early, and all we had to do was pull them out of the box. Great packaging from the manufacturer.

Jeri

Jeri from Dallas, TX– Verified Buyer

I got the turquoise one. The color looks great with red or black or just about anything else. It serves as a chair to my desk. Although there are knock offs, you know this is an Eames.

A CLASSIC!

yvonne from Exton, PA– Verified Buyer

So glad I finally purchased these. I ordered 4 different colors - red, blue, black, yellow - for my boys' study room. They are grouped around a white round table w/my parents' 1970's globe pendant that was being stored in the basement.

Cons: non
