Eames Modern

Relax in an Eames chair: fetch both comfort and style to your home

Eames chairs have been produced for over fifty years because they are attractive, sturdy and comfortable. The Eames chair is still in high demand today, with modern reproductions of the chair coming at a much more affordable cost for the customer.

What is an Eames chair? The Eames chair was popular in the 20th century because it mixed traditional and contemporary design.

After years of development it was introduced in 1956 by two American designers, Charles and Ray Eames. It has since been in production by the Hermann Miller furniture company with whom the two designers closely collaborated.Although the Eames chair is an attractive piece, the designers’ key aim was to make a chair that was as comfortable as possible by making it ‘resemble the warmth, familiarity and comfort of a well worn baseball mitt.’ (Charles Eames.) The pair produced something that had not been done so previously - a chair that was luxurious to sit in and attractive to look at.

The chair’s design

The Eames chair is made from rich wooden veneers (it is worth noting that the veneer grain will differ in each chair), rubber or metal shock mounts, and thick cushions that are upholstered in soft Italian leather. The usage of these various materials makes a chair that is both comfortable and stylish. The chair pivots and is at a permanently reclined angle, which helps to distribute body weight towards the rear of the chair.

Differences between the original chairs and the modern reproductions

Veneers: modern reproductions of Eames chairs glue a higher quantity of thinner layers of wood veneer, shaped by heat and pressure. There weren’t as many veneer layers (made out of rosewood and plywood) in original chairs.

Rubber spacers: a reproduced Eames chair will use a range of materials for the spacers such as metal, plastic or rubber, whereas the original chairs used rubber spacers only.Cushion zips: earlier Eames chairs had brown or black zips, whereas the zips on modern chairs are only black.

The dimensions of the Eames chair and ottoman

Eames Chair Dimensions (H x W x D): 840mm x 850mm x 840mm Ottoman Dimensions (H x W x D): 450mm x 550mm x 650mm

Television appearances of the Eames chair

Having frequently appeared on TV in sitcoms and adverts, the chair has become quite famous.

The most notable appearances are listed below:

4. It made its debut television appearance on the Arlene Francis ‘Home’ show aired on the NBC network in 1956.

5. The Eames chair graced the apartment of Frazier Crane in ‘Frazier’, a popular US sitcom.

6. Most recently however the chair was used as part of a home makeover in the hit show ‘60 Minute Makeover.’

Gallery installations

As well as making various TV appearances, the Eames chair has also been installed in some of America’s art museums and galleries:

1. The chair has been installed by The New York Museum of Modern Art in the museum’s permanent collection.

2. The Art Institute of Chicago has displayed the chair for many decades.

How much does an Eames chair cost? Although Eames chair originals are expensive (generally costing in excess of £5000) reproduction units are available at around a quarter of the cost. Although modern Eames chairs are cheaper, they match the original Eames chairs in regards to style and build quality.

Where is the best place to put an Eames chair? An Eames chair suits any lounge, office area or library. If you want a chair in your home that incorporates maximum comfort with striking style, then an Eames chair would be the perfect choice for you.
