The Charles Eames Style Organic Chair is a high quality reproduction in the style of the original design.
Originally designed as a comfortable small reading chair, made in 1940 as a contribution to the New York MoMA's "Organic Design in Home Furnishings" competition. Formally speaking it was ahead of its time, but owing to the lack of manufacturing techniques, never went into production. It was not until after 1950 that it became possible to manufacture larger quantities of organically shaped seat shells and market them. The first were chairs such as Eames' famous Plastic Armchair or Saarinen's Tulip Chair.
Suitable as a contemporary office chair, this reproduced design classic can also be used in many rooms as a side chair or dining chair.
The name Charles Eames is only used to describe the characteristics of the goods made to the original design, and not as a trade mark
This chair is absolutely wonderful - I bought it for my boyfriend as a present and wish I had bought myself one too. The construction is very solid and the chair itself is ergonomically perfect and incredibly comfortable. The fabric is soft yet hard wearing.
I'm so pleased with this chair. I've been looking for the perfect therapist's chair for absolutely ages and have finally found something that's extremely comfortable and supportive to sit in for long periods each day. It also looks super cool!
I love it so much I'm about to order another!
