Eames Molded Plastic Armchair, Dowel Leg Base
designed by Charles and Ray Eames


Dowel Leg Plastic Armchair At A Glance:
This iconic chair by one of the most renowned design duos of the last century is now available with a dowel leg base. A brilliant reintroduction - the wooden dowel legs give the molded plastic chair a softer feel, and yet the metal rods connecting the legs hint at the geometric form that this chair's base is famous for.

See the entire Molded Plastic Chair Collection.

What's To Like:
Charles and Ray Eames believed that comfort was as important as looks. The molded plastic chairs have comfort built in. The shell seats have high, flexible backs, deep seat pockets, and waterfall front edges so you can sit comfortably even for extended periods. A landmark design from Charles and Ray Eames, these were the first industrially manufactured plastic chairs. Their clean, simple forms cradle the body. Today's chairs are the authentic original design with updated, eco-friendly materials and manufacturing and a large selection of base, shell, and color combinations.

What's Not to Like:
If we're being picky, it is possible that those who are taller will find that the back of the chair doesn't provide enough support, and can end up being a bit uncomfortable. If you're not really tall, this shouldn't be a concern.

The Bottom Line:
More than accent pieces, Eames Molded Plastic Armchairs are comfortable, durable performers in homes, offices, libraries, museums - just about everywhere. Available in a range of colors, the Eames plastic armchair continues to brighten spaces of every variety to this day.

        Comments about Herman Miller Eames Molded Plastic Dowel-Leg Chair:

        Purchased these arm chairs to complement a purchase of four Eames side chairs made a few weeks prior.

        We were going to wait on this purchase but decided to go ahead and get them since the four side chairs alone looked like something was missing in our dining area. They really complete the look placed at the ends of our dining table.

          Comments about Herman Miller Eames Molded Plastic Dowel-Leg Chair:

          We love this chair. It's a timeless piece that can go in any room. The sparrow seat with the walnut base is a great color combination. It came pre-assembled. The only thing that disappointed me was that it's not a fiber glass blend, but it clearly states that it's made of 100% polypropylene in the description. My fault for not researching it properly. At least it's not a cheap looking plastic like the knock-off version. Also happy with SmartFurniture's service. They kept us updated on the status of the manufacturing and shipping of the chair. Would buy again.

            Was looking for new dining room chairs for months when I found these chairs on smart furniture website. First chairs my husband and I both loved. Such a classic and truly comfortable design from the legendary Eames design team. Mix of materials used for chair base adds warmth and interest to the classic molded plastic seats. Will have these chairs for the rest of our lives!
