eamesĀ® dowel base side chair with seat pad

"The role of the designer is that of a very good, thoughtful host anticipating the needs of his guest." -Charles Eames

The organic shape and sophisticated lines of Charles and Ray Eames' molded plastic side chair make it a desirable design object as well as a surprisingly comfortable seating addition to any environment. This version features a dowel base which offers a warm counterpoint to the plastic or fiberglass shell material. The Eames molded side chairs in fiberglass or plastic can also be configured with a choice of wire, dowel leg, and 4-leg bases. An array of finely tailored fabrics round out the collection of seat pad customization options.

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."

With the molded plastic, fiberglass, and wood shell chairs -as well as the wire chair- the Eames' have created a universal response to what everyone wants from a chair: a simple, gracious form that fits any body and every place.

The seat and back are formed of molded plastic or fiberglass with waterfall edges and flexible back. Upholstered seat pad comes affixed to Eames Molded shells. The Ebony stained white ash dowels and the solid walnut dowels have black glides while the solid maple and white ash dowels have white glides. Chair is offered with standard plastic glides or standard glides with felt bottom.
