"You know what looks good can change, but what works works."
-Ray Eames

Ray Eames drew on her training as a sculptor to design a new kind of occasional piece for the lobby of the Time-Life Building in New York City. Eames walnut stools became her favorite seats and were liberally scattered about the Charles and Ray Eames home in Pacific Palisades. Made of solid walnut, these stools can be used anywhere and are beautifully versatile. Besides being places to sit, they also serve as low tables, display surfaces, or simply objects of art to be admired.

A museum curator once ordered two of these stools for his son and daughter. "Graduation gifts?" he was asked. "No," he said, "the kids are only five and three. But I want them to have the experience of growing up with something truly good that they can keep all their lives."

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."

The Eames stools are in your choice of solid walnut or ebonized ash and the center section of the stool comes in four distinctively sculpted profiles. The top surface and the smaller bottom surface are both concave.

The primary need of the human being was an essential component of every design for Eames. They believed a design to be successful when it benefited the greatest number of people.
Herman Miller is synonymous with modern designer furniture. Creative director George Nelson recruited contemporaries Charles & Ray Eames, Alexander Girard and Noguchi to create a legendary furniture collection.
