Three beautiful women, one Eames sofa Posted August 29, 2008 by Daniel Ostroff

The LIPSTICK JUNGLE cast sure looks good on that sofa.

The cast of LIPSTICK JUNGLE sure looks good on that sofa.

According to the manufacturer, Herman Miller, we learn:

“The light-scaled Eames sofa compact gives all the comfort usually associated with long, low, heavy sofas. It fits well where bulkier, traditional sofas don’t–such as an executive suite or lounge as well as a home’s alcove, vestibule, study, or nook.”

“The sofa seats three, yet is perfectly scaled for tight spaces.”

“Resilient feel. Seat cushion support is fabric-reinforced rubber webbing on a steel and wire-spring armature.”

“Soft cushions. 2 1/2-inch-thick molded urethane foam, upholstered in fabric.”

“Strong, Durable Steel frame. In black enamel.”

“Tubular steel legs. Chrome-plated.”

“Stainless steel glides. With rubber base.”

“The sofa compact’s striking profile and crisp, light scale evolved from a built-in sofa that Charles and Ray Eames designed for the living room of their Pacific Palisades home. Knowing this makes the name “compact” seem less curious for a sofa that’s over 6 feet long and provides such comfortable support from shoulders to knees. The sofa has been in continuous production by Herman Miller since 1954.”
