Herman Miller Eames Sofa Compact
designed by Charles and Ray Eames
At A Glance:
Lean, smooth, and made for lounging, the Eames Sofa Compact brings a minimal, mid-century modern vibe to the home. The Eameses designed a built-in sofa for their Pacific Palisades home in the 1940s - and liked it so much that they adapted it to be a stand-alone sofa. No longer foldable like the original, the Sofa Compact is still the standard for sofa simplicity. Fill the space you have without overwhelming your room - the Sofa Compact stands at 6' wide and seats 3 people comfortably. Or, you can get friendly and seat 4.
The Eames Sofa Compact has been in continuous production by Herman Miller since 1954. View the entire Herman Miller Sofa collection.
What's To Like:
The light-scaled Eames Sofa Compact gives all the comfort usually associated with long, low, heavy sofas. Plus, it fits where bulkier, traditional sofas don't - such as an executive suite or lounge as well as a home's alcove, vestibule, study or nook. Combine that with its innovative, minimal look and you have a "just-right" piece of lounge furniture.
What's Not to Like:
Let's see ... the Sofa Compact is a Mid-Century Modern classic, so the price is about right; the cushions are situated so that comfort is equal across its width; and the seat angle provides exceptional support. We're not coming up with anything to complain about. Ah, here we go: there are no arms, and it's no good for sleeping on unless you like to sleep curled up, and on a tilted seat. So now you know what to expect.
The Bottom Line:
From 1954 until today, the Eames Sofa Compact has provided a comfortable place to sit in countless homes around the world. What could be better than a sofa that doesn't get in your way? If you need seating in a cozy place and are looking for classic furniture, the Sofa Compact is your cup of tea.
