Eames Sofa, 1984
Designed by Charles and Ray Eames
With its emphasis on beautiful materials and simplified forms, the Eames Sofa exemplifies the best in modern furniture design. Its angled profile and smooth planes showcase a harmonious combination of rich walnut or teak, soft leather and polished aluminium. Equally fitting for the contemporary home or office, it’s a luxurious place to settle back and relax.
Comfort and Support
Resilient suspension. Seat cushions rest on a fabric-reinforced rubber webbing for comfortable body support.
Ample cushions. Seat and back cushions are 50-mm-thick foam; seat cushion bottoms are covered in ventilating nylon fabric.
Solid walnut or teak. Frame and back panels are polished smooth and hand finished with gunstock oil.
Top quality leather. Seat, back and arm cushion upholstery has a supple feel.
Die-cast aluminium. Legs and arm supports are brightly polished.
Steel braces. For extra strength.
The Eames Sofa is the last piece of furniture produced by the Eames Office, which completed the design after Charles Eames passed away in 1978. It went into production in 1984 and has been manufactured by Herman Miller ever since.
Charles and Ray Eames designed the sofa to complement their plush soft pad chairs and the sleek chaise. It stands as a graceful reminder of the honest genius of Charles and Ray Eames.
