Herman Miller Eames Aluminum Side Chair
designed by Charles and Ray Eames
At A Glance:
This side chair from the Eames Aluminum Group incorporates all of the elements of other Aluminum Group pieces but in a more minimal, basic piece. Like other pieces from the Eames Aluminum Group this Armless Side Chair features a lightweight aluminum frame with suspended fabric upholstery. This Armless Side Chair with fabric upholstery will fit in almost any environment, from an office or conference room to a dining room or even occasional seating in a living room. The fabric upholstery options give you the flexibility to choose a lighter, more playful chair or a more subdued and traditional piece. First introduced with the rest of the Eames Aluminum Group in 1958, this versatile Armless Side Chair remains a classic of mid-century and modern design.
Also available with leather upholstery.
And available with arms.

What's To Like:
The Eames Aluminum Side Chair is an attractive and refined piece of occasional seating - we love its easy ability to transition from the meeting table, to the office, to the living room, without looking out of place in any of those spaces. Plus, we're just suckers for polished aluminum.
What's Not To Like:
In the office, this chair would be harder to move than others because it doesn't have casters. Once in place, it would be a great fit - and in the home, you don't have to worry about needing casters.
The Bottom Line:
Wherever you use the Eames Aluminum Side Chair, it's going to mesh well with most design schemes; the colors are muted and the materials fit well in nearly any environment. Use it anywhere you anticipate good conversation and inspiring ideas - and anywhere you'd just like to think for a while. Always comfortable and always beautiful, it's a chair anyone can enjoy.
