Voted by time magazine in 1999 as the best design of the 20th century, they described this DCW (dining chair wood base) chair as ‘’something elegant, light and comfortable’’.

Shortly after Charles and Ray Eames were married in 1941, they began working together to see just how far they could push wood as a material. This led to a commission from the US navy to manufacture plywood splints, stretchers and glider shells used in World War II. With the war over and post war boom beginning, the Eames’ adapted the technology that they had used for the Navy commissions (i.e. the moulding of wood using heat and pressure). The result was their moulded plywood collection, a signature look that is a relevant today as when it was first introduced.

This walnut chair is great in both bedrooms and living spaces. Our version of this iconic chair features gently rounded contours, which are sculpted to fit the contours of the body so sitting on this icon of modern design feels good.
