Overview

Design by Charles & Ray Eames, 1948.
By Herman Miller.

The unmistakable Eames Molded Plastic chair takes on a different life with each of its base offerings. The Dowel-Leg base brings a softer aesthetic to the Eames Molded Plastic Armchair. The maple dowel legs include crossed metal rods in Black Umber — distinctly Eames. The molded plastic shells are carefully manufactured using environmentally friendly, high-impact recyclable polypropylene and are dyed throughout so colors remain vibrant even after years of hard use. And today, the chairs are produced locally in Michigan by Herman Miller, just as the vintage chairs were. For extended comfort, the shell is connected to the base by rubber shock mounts. The dowel-leg base has maple legs with non-adjustable nylon glides. The Molded Plastic Armchair is also offered with Metal base options.

Select Maple, Ebony or Walnut Dowel Legs with one of several molded plastic non-upholstered shell colors.

Beautiful

By: Claudia , Homeowner (Charleston, SC)

Very nice and stylish armchair. Love the off white color of the seat. We ordered it with walnut dowel legs and they look beautiful.

Excellent Herman Miller Quality as always

By: Michael B., Homeowner (San Diego CA)

We bought two side chairs along with two armchairs for our dining room table. The production quality is fantastic, no surprise from Herman Miller.

Classic design, great service and best price!

By: Julia , Homeowner (Seattle)

I ordered an Eames chair during the annual Herman Miller sale -- free shipping and zero tax saved me from other retailers. I was super pleased with the customer service-- color chips arrived promptly with friendly follow-up. I chose the light blue color with walnut legs, and I love the combination. The chair is comfortable, interesting and sturdy -- I'll keep it forever. I will definitely use YLiving again -- can't beat the price or service.

Great modern design!

By: Katarina S., Architect (New York)

The chairs are a modern eye catcher for every home. They are great to give a color accent and mix very well with any style furniture. They are comfortable, although we probably will put some kind of pillow to not sit on the cold seat. Good design value!!!

Absolutely love the molded plastic Eames chairs from Y-Living.

By: Lucas S., Homeowner (Los Angeles, CA)

Highly recommend the armchair version. Also feel the dowel-leg base provides a little more originality and softer feel. I hope to find a thin overlay cushion to add comfort.

Product is as expected. Service, free shipping and no taxes is great. Will buy from YLiving again!

Charles + Ray Eames

Designer: Charles + Ray Eames

A chair that looked like a potato chip. Another that resembled a "well-used first baseman's mitt." A folding screen that rippled...

With a grand sense of adventure, Charles and Ray Eames turned their curiosity and boundless enthusiasm into creations that established them as a truly great husband-and-wife design team. Their unique synergy led to a whole new look in furniture. Lean and modern. Playful and functional. Sleek, sophisticated, and beautifully simple. That was and is the "Eames look."

That look and their relationship with Herman Miller started with molded plywood chairs in the late 1940s and includes the world-renowned Eames lounge chair, now in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
