Your Information


Eames Plywood Lounge Chair, Upholstered by Herman Miller
designed by Charles and Ray Eames


At A Glance: At the risk of outrageous hyperbole, this is probably the greatest chair ever made. Okay, okay, stop rolling your eyes and come back. Here's the checklist:
1) Greatest pair of furniture designers in American history, Charles and Ray Eames, built it.
2) Possibly the greatest furniture design invention of the last century, molded plywood, was invented for this particular product.
3) Absolutely gorgeous, yet playful and not at all intimidating.

4) In 1999, Time Magazine rated it the best design of the century

What's To Like: You heard the part about greatest chair ever designed, right?

What's Not to Like: One possible reason not to buy - if you don't want to sit low to the ground, then this chair is not for you. It's a real low rider.

The Bottom Line: Probably the best chair in the history of American design, a real piece of art history, and you can let your kids play on it. Not bad.

Leg choice. Wood or chrome-plated steel.

A Shape That Sits Well
Natural contours. The five-ply seat and back are designed to comfortably fit the body.
