Side Chair | Eames Molded Plastic Chairs

A landmark design from Charles and Ray Eames, these were the first industrially manufactured plastic chairs. Their clean, simple forms cradle the body. Today’s chairs are authentic original design with updated, eco-friendly materials and manufacturing and a large selection of base, shell, and color combinations. More than accent pieces, they are comfortable, durable performers in homes, offices, libraries, museums—just about everywhere.

The Eames molded plastic chairs are as beloved today as when they were first introduced in 1948. Whether stacking or ganging in large spaces like auditoriums or cafeterias, or on their own in elegant homes, libraries, and conference rooms, these chairs unite enduring form and quality construction in a comfortable, durable seat. The chairs have achieved a pervasive presence that proves that the staying power of good design can be shared by everyone. They work and look good in conference and waiting rooms, kids’ rooms and family rooms, kitchens, and offices.

Good design never changes. But times do, and our commitment to the environment is always part of our manufacturing. In place of the original fiberglass-infused plastic, we now use a more ecologically supportable material for the chair shells, 100% recyclable polypropylene.
