The Modernist Classic Eames LCW Recovered

Herman Miller introduced the “LCW” or Lounge Chair Wood by Charles and Ray Eames in 1946. The chair has become a modernist icon that is as contemporary today as when it was first produced.  The chair matched simple sculptural forms with what was cutting edge technology of the day. The Eames’ developed the design in their California studio.

Good ideas never die and often come back to life as something fresh and new for following generations. The beauty of wood grain veneer is exposed on the classic plywood LCW.  It was little known that the chair was produced in an upholstered version until Herman Miller recently reintroduced the fabric covered chair.

The tailored softness of the upholstery and the opportunity to add color to a room, are good reasons to use the revived upholstered chair. What’s old is new and new again when great ideas are rediscovered. The Eames Molded Plywood Upholstered LCW is a modernist classic that will bring life and comfortable seating to both living and work spaces.
