Designed in 1948 by husband and wife Charles & Ray Eames, the Eames Dowel-Leg Side Chair is a classic piece in the oeuvre of American design. Its provenance is mid-century, yet the chair has such a simple and timeless look that it has been a favorite in interiors around the world since its debut, through to today.
What to do?
Before we decide, let’s get a feel for how the chair might look in a few more settings. In the opening image above, the chairs augment the relaxed and airy aesthetic of an Australian summer home.
Now with floral wallpaper, a chandelier, and a chest filled with silver and crystal, they add to the English femininity of the space.
Here, in a Provencal country house with exposed beams and distressed finishes, the Eames chairs contribute to the rustic charm.
In a family-friendly townhouse, the chairs provide architectural detail to enhance the spare space.
And in a European great room, the chairs are an elegant match for an understated-chic abode.
