Eames RAR Molded Plastic Rocking Chair
Nancy from Austin, TX– Verified Buyer
Very comfortable and great chair. Modern and clean. Small so it doesn't take up too much room.
Good rocking chair
M from California– Verified Buyer
I haven't really used the rocking chair yet. But I've taken it out and put it on the bed. I've not had my baby yet. But from what I've seen with the rocking chair, it's seems to be a good one. It was also easy to put together.

smaller than expected
samantha from cincinnati, OH– Verified Buyer
I've always been a fan of Eames furniture, and was excited to get this when it came. But I'll admit--I was surprised when I opened the box at just how small it is. I thought for a moment that I'd accidentally ordered the children's size instead.
Until I sat down in it. It's the perfect height and width for an average sized adult, so long as that adult is under 6 feet tall. My son (teenage and just under 5 foot 10 inches) loves it. My husband (at 6 foot 2 inches) rolls his eyes when it's the only chair available.
I tend to be the one using it, since it fits me like a glove, and I find it very comfortable. The plastic gets a bit cold, though, so I recommend throwing a lightweight blanket along the back and seat area for the perfect sit.
Comfy little chair

Amanda from Atlanta
Love the rocker, I use it in my nursery for feeding the baby and it wipes clean in the event of spills.
Kelsey from Minneapolis– Verified Buyer
The product was delivered quickly and arrived in perfect condition. It is the perfect compliment to our living room. No assembly made it easy to take out and drop into place.
Jacob from San Diego, CA– Verified Buyer
Great rocker! Comfortable but no head rest. Looks very modern. 4 stars because of the low back but doesn't really bother me anymore.
In love with a chair.
Brian Conley from Chicago, IL– Verified Buyer
I sometimes longingly stare at this chair before going bed. It's becoming a problem.
No, but seriously, I like this chair more each day. I'm very glad I bought it.
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:
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.
