Designer Eames Dining Chairs

12th February 2019

History of the Eames Chair

The first Eames Chair was designed by Charles Eames and was made of stamped steel, but as steel needed a neoprene coating to add warmth this proved to be far too expensive to mass produce.

They were eventually made of Zenaloy, a plastic resin reinforced with fibreglass. The chairs were originally made in very basic colours of “greige”, elephant hide grey and parchment.

The colours were mainly chosen by Charles’ wife, designer Ray Eames, and she soon added some more colourful additions to the production of the chairs, including seafoam green, yellow, and red, fortunately for us there is a much larger choice from the 14 colours now in production.

One of the popular selling points of these moulded chairs is its adaptability, two different tops, with or without arms, and they can be attached to a variety of bases. This is probably why they are becoming a firm favourite throughout households. They are incredibly stylish dining chairs.

The Eames chair was originally made for a competition - but it didn’t win. The competition held in 1948 was the International Competition for Low-Cost Furniture and Design. Production of the fibreglass original chairs ceased in 1989 for environmental reasons.

The materials chemistry and their lack of recyclability led Herman Miller and Ray Eames to cease production of the armchairs. After exploring alternate materials, they began making the chairs again in recyclable polypropylene in 2000.

In 2013 Herman Miller announced the return of fibreglass - a new recyclable kind. This gave over to new designer dining chairs gracing our houses.

Charles Eames, together with his designer wife, created the Tandem Sling Seating, which is used in many of our Airports.

The Eames Chair is well known for being “Simple, Classic and Gorgeous”, This collection of modern and stylish chairs can help create your very own dining experience in your home, be it in your kitchen/diner or dining room.

Practical, hardwearing moulded chairs, clear and sleek shaped chairs, in a variety of colours, or chairs covered in a warm fabric of your choice.
