Eames Molded Plywood Lounge Chair Wood Base (LCW)

Hot stuff — Honored by Time magazine as the Best Design of the 20th Century, the Lounge Chair Wood (LCW) began as an experiment, created via a machine that molded plywood with the help of heat and a bicycle pump. The resulting chair, as simple as it is comfortable, continues to revolutionize furniture production.

From experiment to icon

Hailed by Time as the Best Design of the 20th Century, the LCW — or Lounge Chair with wood legs (1946) — began as an experiment in Charles and Ray Eameses’ apartment, where they were molding plywood in what they called the “Kazam! Machine.” The machine pressed thin sheets of wood veneer against a heated membrane that was inflated by a bicycle pump. From these humble beginnings came what would become one of the world’s most widely recognized and highly coveted chairs.

Molded magnificence.
Low-slung, and with an expertly crafted molded seat and back (no more bike pumps needed), the LCW cradles you in a comfortable position; rubber shock mounts between the back, seat, and frame buffer against any jarring movements. This original is an authentic product of Herman Miller, Inc. Eames is a licensed trademark of Herman Miller. Made in the U.S.A.

Charles and Ray Eames

Charles and Ray Eames

Design is for living. That maxim shaped a widespread shift in design during the 1940s and '50s. It was a revolution of form, an exciting visual language that signaled a new age and a fresh start – and two of its prime movers were Charles and Ray Eames. This husband-and-wife team's unique synergy led to a whole new look in furniture. Lean and modern. Sleek and simple. Beautifully functional.

Care & Maintenance

With regular care and maintenance, your Herman Miller product will provide many years of superior performance and satisfaction. To maintain quality, please follow the cleaning procedures outlined here.

The instructions for the care and maintenance of Herman Miller products are provided to you as a service. No warranty is implied since results may vary.

Wood & Veneer

This includes Herman Miller products finished with wood veneer or recut wood veneer, except the oiled Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman with Rosewood, Oiled Walnut, or Oiled Santos Palisander veneer unless specifically noted.

Normal Cleaning
Dust regularly with a slightly damp, soft, lint-free cloth. Wipe dry with a dry, soft cloth in the directionof the wood grain.Spills should be immediately wiped up with a damp cloth.

Once a month
Clean the surface with a soft cloth dampened with a quality cleaner formulated for wood furniture. Wipe the surface in the direction of the wood grain to remove dirt and fingerprints. Wipe dry with a clean, dry cloth.

Twice a year
Apply a good quality furniture polish with a soft cloth. Do not use aerosol-powered cleaners or polishes. Also, do not use polishes containing waxes or abrasives, or polishes that are oil based.

Stains
Herman Miller veneers meet strict testing standards for resistance to wear, light, stains, water, and pressure. To reduce the risk of damage, take some precautions: Use coasters for glasses and mugs. If a glass top is added to the veneer surface, be sure it rests on felt pads. Don’t place a potted plant on a veneer surface unless it’s in a water-tight container or in a drip tray.Don’t let vinyl binders stay on a surface for very long. Use protective pads under equipment with "rubber” cushioning feet. Some chemical compounds used in the feet on office equipment, such as printers and monitor stands, may leave permanent stains or marks.

Minor repair of water rings, stains, and scratches
Rub the surface lightly in the direction of the wood grain using No. 000 steel wool. Apply a scratch-removing polish with a color and value that simulate the veneer. If the scratches are deep, consult a professional furniture refinisher.

Other Damage
Wood is susceptible to bruising and scratching from heavy office equipment, so we encourage a protective surface is placed underneath. Objects should be lifted instead of dragged across a surface. Protective pads should be used under items with a rough bottom, like pottery. Denting, caused by extreme pen pressure when writing, can also damage veneer. Use desk pads or some other protection where a lot of paperwork is done. Sunlight can damage veneer as well, so veneer surfaces should not be in direct sunlight. To help a surface age evenly, users can periodically move items on their desks so that the entire surface is exposed to an even amount of light over time. In addition to light, extremely high or low humidity is a damaging environmental factor. Herman Miller suggests maintaining a relative humidity of 35-65 percent.

Seating Fabrics

For normal cleaning, vacuum upholstery fabric as needed, using an upholstery attachment. If further cleaning is needed, dry-clean or spot clean fabric with solvent cleaner.

Do not brush fabric or use a vacuum attachment with a rotary brush. Brushing may permanently damage the nap or change the character of the fabric.

Do not apply water or any liquid solution. Wetting the fabric with any liquid solution may result in permanent damage.

Would love to buy more!
Comfortable, well-made, and stylish. Well worth the price!

More comfortable than it looks
A true design classic that will shine in any room. A surprisingly small footprint which is great for tight spaces. It’s also more comfortable than it looks, and the back rest offers proper lumbar support.

Classic design and comfort
Beautifully designed piece of sculpture, that is comfortable to sit it. Great accent for the room corner, and pulled over when needed for social gatherings. Solid construction.

I hope my home is worthy of such a beautiful chair!
I was so excited when this chair was delivered! The only thing I worried about is would it seat an adult comfortably, while being sturdy. Well, it is not only beautiful, but is is very comfortable, and yes (!) it was sturdy!!!! The sales lady, Was extremely nice on the phone, and made ordering easy. I was giving notifications about delivery. Would buy again!!!

Great Design & Scale
The chair is beautifully designed and extremely well-made. It is also light enough to be easily moved. What I appreciate the most is that it is scaled for apartment living. It provides comfort, visual appeal and leaves plenty of floor space for smaller environments.

I own two of them!
Fantastic classic chairs! I have one in cherry and a second in walnut. They are comfortable to sit on and beautiful to look at. My only gripe is with the veneer on the walnut chair. The wood has a strange pattern. I considered returning it but decided to keep it.

These chairs are a piece of American design history and are wonderful to own like all Eames products. You won't be disappointed.

The most comfortable chair in the house
This chair was a gift. I first liked the color and design (I have the red version), then when I sat in it, was very surprised by just how comfortable it is - by far the best chair in the house!

Looks hot, feels bad
Eames was very good at creating uncomfortable seating, without fully embracing engineering and form. This well recognized chair is interesting and hip, but, oh, so, uncomfortable. No one, looking to relax after a long day, would feel releif in this chair. It is hard to sit on hard surfaces for very long, and without pads or cushions, this chair will only act as a statue, not a functional piece. Great for stagers!
