Slip into the ultimate Paris-chic seat, with this classic Fifties chair. Designed by Ray and Charles Eames, this Eiffel Tower-inspired chair is synonymous with mid-twentieth century design expertise, and here’s why. The Eames DAR Dining Chair’s moulded-fibreglass seat shell wraps around you like a designer suit, offering comfort, designer good looks, and effortless style.

Designed for both artistic and practical pleasure, this good-looking chair offers a number of functional features, including four rubber-feet gliders for ease of movement and protection against scratches and scuff marks on flooring. The same rubber material is utilised as a shock absorber in between the cast iron frame and seat for maximum comfort.

Our reproductions use the authentic fibreglass of the original, ensuring you have a sturdy seat with an excellent smooth finish not found in competitor replicas.

The Eiffel Tower-inspired cast-iron frame ensures the Eames DAR Dining Chair adds Parisian sophistication to dining rooms, lounges and offices, and is never out of place or out of time.

Choose from a range of seat colours: red, orange, green, sky blue, yellow, black and white. Mix or match to add vibrancy to your interior.

The Full Story

The Eames DAR Dining Chair, or Dining Height Armchair R-Wire Base, was originally designed in 1948 and won an award that same year at the prestigious New York Museum of Modern Art.

With its ergonomically moulded seat and bold cast-iron wire legs, the Eames DAR Dining Chair was rightly seen as a design breakthrough. And the award-winning, innovative style of married couple, Charles and Ray Eames, would shape the interiors of executive offices and homes for years to come.

Organically shaped fibreglass reinforced-plastic seat shells were later configured with different bases, and became the first mass-produced plastic chairs of the 1950s. Multi-purpose, adaptable and made with modern living in mind, their appeal was enormous.

Longevity has always been important in Charles and Ray Eames furniture design philosophy. That’s why at Iconic we only offer reproductions of the Eames DAR Dining Chair that use the original materials. Our refusal to compromise on quality ensures your iconic chair doesn’t just look the part – it’s a durable investment too. In fact, your Eames DAR Dining Chair is as authentic as the first chairs to roll off the production line in the Fifties .

There have been many replicas of this popular design, but most manufacturers have replaced the fibreglass, which offers sturdiness and produces a sleek smooth finish, with dull, flimsy polypropylene. We don’t. Charles Eames himself once said: ‘I have never been forced to accept compromises.’ Our thoughts entirely, which is why our products offer only the very best quality, authentic materials.

The Eames DAR Dining Chair evokes the pioneering entrepreneurial spirit of its creators in its breathtaking simplicity, whilst oozing sophisticated cool. A triumph of art and design, the Eames DAR Dining Chair showcases both Charles Eames’ architectural background and his artistic flair with its Eiffel Tower-inspired base and the sensual, flowing lines of its seat. It is a perfect marriage of influences: artistic passion and genius of construction.
