Your Information


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.

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.
