Design: Eames Rocker

I have my heart set on getting an Eames piece (or maybe a couple... hmm, maybe three) once we settle into a bigger home, which, hopefully will be soon. I am probably going to get an Eames Rocker for the nursery as our first Eames chair, as I showed you in an earlier post - Nursery Mood Board #1.

Eames molded plastic chair design was first introduced at New York's Museum of Modern Art in 1948. The line has 2 basic designs - the side and the armchair, and each one has different base options, and different color choices. The Eames rocker is actually one of four base options of the Eames molded plastic armchair.

Here are some excerpts about the chairs from Herman Miller.

Product Story

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.

Colorful shells

In ten colors: aqua sky, black, greystone, java, light blue, lime green, red, sparrow, wafer, and white.

The shell is dyed throughout so the colors are integral and remain vibrant even after years of hard use. Mix, match, imagine a whole new look.
Pin It!
