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.

Available in nine new colors: Blue Ice, Alpine, Kelly Green, Peacock Blue, Charcoal, Stone, Blush, Pale Yellow and Java.

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

Charles + Ray Eames

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.

In addition to his professional career, Mark has been an industrial design professor at Pratt Institute for 14 years. In his graduate furniture design class, students are responsible for the ideation, design, and execution of an actual piece of furniture. The emphasis of the course is to encourage students to develop their own individual point of view.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic design, great service and best price! 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great modern design! 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!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Absolutely love the molded plastic Eames chairs from Y-Living. 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.
