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.

Charles and Ray Eames adapted molding techniques developed during World War II to mass produce this classic design. Available in side and armchair versions, 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. The Design: 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 unupholstered, in keeping with the Eameses requirement that materials be expressed honestly and unselfconsciously. 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

a design classic

 from Boston Back Bay, MA– Verified Buyer

These chairs will never loose their value or appeal. I got the red with dowel leg base--very hot. One thing to note is that it's definitely NOT red--it's more of a bright orange and the maple legs are much lighter than pictures show but considering that they're real maple wood the tone will certainly deepen/darken over time and with exposure to light.

Enjoyed customizing this chair

 from Macon, Georgia– Verified Buyer

Awesome chair. Looks like it can stand up to my kids.
I use this chair for granite top work table for family everyday use. The plastic seems thinner than I imagined. But this chair is worth the money.

Beautiful design

 from WASHINGTON, DC– Verified Buyer

I love the color, very zen, and the wooden legs that soften the modernity of the design. Love it. And the big bonus...so comfortable.

Was this helpful? Yes / No

suitable for dining chairs

 from Houston, TX– Verified Buyer

Looks cool and is stable than expected. I use this for a part of my dining set and it works very well. I wonder if the color of legs were a little bit brownish, then it could be perfect.
