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.

Charles and Ray EamesCharles and Ray Eames
Charles and Ray Eames are perhaps the most celebrated designers of the 20th century. Married in 1941, the Eames duo are responsible for some of the most critically acclaimed furniture designs of the modern era. Amongst their most famous designs are the wire chair and the molded plywood chair group. Although they are most often remembered today for their furniture designs with partner Herman Miller, the Eameses engaged in artistic expression across a broad range of mediums- including architecture and filmmaking.

Herman Miller and Charles and Ray Eames had a lasting collaboration that resulted in some of the great furniture of the modern American scene. From the Eames Lounge Chair to the Hang-It-All, their contributions to design have been unique and uniquely stellar. But it all started with the clever, deceptively simple, beautiful and challenging Eames Molded Plywood Lounge Chair. Smart Furniture is very proud to now have a role to play in this legendary partnership, and be able to sell this chair to our customers with the approval of Herman Miller and the Eames family. Get your Eames Molded Plywood Lounge Chair, whether it be a dining room version or a version with metal legs, today.


Design Story

In the early 1940s, when Charles Eames was working on MGM set designs, he would return to the small apartment where he and his wife, Ray, were experimenting with wood-molding techniques that would have profound effects on the design world.

Their discoveries led to a commission from the U.S. Navy in 1942 to develop plywood splints, stretchers, and glider shells molded under heat and pressure.

After World War II, they adapted the technology to create inexpensive, high-quality chairs that could be mass-produced. The process eliminated the extraneous wood needed to connect the seat with the back, which reduced the weight and visual profile of the chair and established a basis for modern furniture design. The chair is in the permanent collection of New York's Museum of Modern Art.

Comments about Herman Miller Eames Plywood Lounge Chair, Upholstered:

This chair is the last piece we needed to complete a small room which we wanted to keep light and airy but still offer full comfortable seating. We love that this chair is small in scale with big comfort - it's even more comfortable for long seated reading sessions than the leather sofa it's been paired with because it supports the lumbar like a car racing seat! And its lack of bulk doesn't obstruct the light or view from the wall of windows it's in front of. The design is perfect for the space.
