    Charles and Ray Eames Eames® Molded Fiberglass Stacking Side Chair (DFSS)
    Charles and Ray Eames believed “design is a method of action,” and they continually updated their work as newbecame available. “The chair that Charles and Ray were designing,” explains grandson Eames Demetrios, “is the chair that’s made tomorrow.” The duo originally designed their molded chair in metal and entered it as a prototype in MoMA’s 1948 International Competition for Low-Cost Furniture Design, then refashioned it in light yet strong fiberglass just two years later. In the 1980s, after determining fiberglass production was detrimental to the environment, Herman Miller ceased production to explore more sustainable options, eventually choosing recyclable polypropylene. The company never quite forgot about fiberglass, however, and it recently began researching greener production methods. The Eames Molded Fiberglass Chair (1950) is the end result, constructed using a cleaner process but true to the original with its beloved variegated surface. This reintroduced version comes in a range of reformulated semi-gloss color pigments that faithfully reproduce the vintage ones. Its deep seat pocket and waterfall edge keep you comfortable by reducing pressure on the backs of your thighs. The seat back is left unfinished to maintain a slightly rough natural texture for easier gripping with your hands. This is an authentic Eames product by Herman Miller. Made in U.S.A. DFSS stands for dining-height fiberglass side chair with stacking base (stacks up to 14 high). Made of 99% recyclableand covered by Herman Miller’s take-back program for environmentally sound recycling (should you ever wish to part with this chair).

    Charles and Ray Eames Eames® Wire Chair with Bikini (DKR.2)
    After refining their molded plastic chairs, Charles and Ray Eames began experimenting with a chair made of welded wire. To achieve this design, the Eameses had to figure out how to create the shape and strength they desired, while keeping manufacturing costs low. The answer turned out to be the use of a lighter-gauge wire forming the rim of the chair and doubled for strength, which won the Eameses their first American mechanical patent for a design, and resulted in the Wire Chair (1951). This original is an authentic, fully licensed product of Herman Miller®, Inc. Eames® is a licensed trademark of Herman Miller. DKR.2 stands for dining height, wire shell, rod base, with “bikini” pad. Includes a black leather “bikini” pad. The chair’s organic shape and airy silhouette are complemented by what’s commonly referred to as the Eiffel base. Contract quality.

    Charles and Ray Eames Eames® Executive Chair in Messenger Fabric
    Also known as the Time-Life Chair, this iconic piece was originally created for the executive floors of New York City's Time-Life Building in 1960. How those lucky executives were able to get an Eames chair designed just for them began with the Time-Life Chairman, Henry Luce. In 1959, Charles Eames asked Luce for photographs from the Time-Life archive to be used in a slideshow he was creating for the U.S. pavilion at the Moscow World Exhibition. Luce agreed, as long as Eames promised to return the favor one day. In 1960, Eames made good on that promise, and 50 years later, the world is still enjoying the results of that arrangement. This chair is an authentic, fully licensed product of Herman Miller®, Inc. Eames is a licensed trademark of Herman Miller. Made in U.S.A. This chair tilts, swivels and has a height-adjustable seat.

    Charles and Ray Eames Eames® Aluminum Lounge, Powder-Coated Frame
    When Charles and Ray Eames designed the Eames Aluminum Group (1958), they created a revolution in seating that has lost none of its edge. These pieces were originally developed as a special project for a private residence being designed by Eero Saarinen and Alexander Girard. Eschewing the Eameses’ shell forms of the 1940s, the designers combined a newly affordable die-cast aluminum frame with a sling seat, a “sitting pocket” that conforms to the body’s shape. The chair features a lightweight, corrosion-resistant frame that will endure years of use and a wide ergonomic seat that swivels 360 degrees on a four-star base for easy positioning. This is an authentic Eames product by Herman Miller. Made in U.S.A.
