Arguably one of the 20th century’s most beloved designs, the Eames Shell Chairs remain a sought after design classic nearly 55 years later.

Charles Eames famously said, “The role of the designer is that of a very good, thoughtful host anticipating the needs of his guests.” The Molded Shell Chairs fulfill a universal response to what one wants in a chair: so that it could fit every body and any context; a chair that would be equally at home in a museum, living room or business.

Eames Stools represent the evolution of Charles and Ray Eames’ iterative process, which continually pushed the boundaries of what a single-shell chair could be. The familiar form of the wood shell sits atop a 4-leg base design. The stools are available in both bar and counter height, and four striking finishes to fit the growing need of stools in the home and work place.

Charles & Ray Eames


A handful of Eames furniture designs, such as the Lounge Chair and Ottoman or the Molded Fiberglass Shell Side Chair, have become ubiquitous. Some are a staple in the interior design of airports around the world. Charles and Ray Eames spent forty years creating furniture in the realm of tables, lounges, chairs, room dividers, stools, and more for public and residential spaces.
