First of all, Eames chairs aren't basic. Yes, okay, so I know the headline clearly says they are, but I am merely referencing their global explosion in popular culture. The well-known molded plastic side chair, aka DSR, has been trending so long now that it's officially crossed over into the mainstream, but you know what? I don't care.
It doesn't matter how many dining rooms or home offices I see with this iconic piece of furniture my love grows stronger every time. So I guess the question is why is this humble chair such a crowd-pleaser? There are several reasons. Its simple design can be paired with any interior style and complement the look, not dominate it; you can layer them among other colors, textures, and patterns with ease; and they come in a variety of shapes, tones, and leg styles. Oh, and they're also really comfortable.
What's not to love? Just like my skinny jeans, Eames will also have a place in my home. Clearly I'm not the only one who covets this cool classic. Prepare to officially fan out over our Eames molded plastic chair gallery.
Do you have a furniture style you'll always love, regardless of whether it's popular or not?
