10 Beautiful Interior Designs Featuring The Eames® Molded Plastic Side Chairs

Designed by Charles & Ray Eames back in 1948, the Eames® Molded Plastic Side Chair is one of those furniture pieces that will never be out of fashion. It’s simple, elegant and functional and this makes it a timeless piece of furniture. This classic chair is also very versatile and can be included is various interior designs. We have selected 10 examples to demonstrate this theory.

The stylish Eames® side chair is perfect for dining rooms. Here we have a very bright dining area decorated using a color palette that revolves around shades of gray and white. The chairs are all shown in white and match the table. The subtle accessories add a few touches of color and thus the décor fails at being monotonous.

This is another dining room. This time the décor is eclectic and more colorful. The yellow Eames chairs are arranged around a white, round table and they make a nice transition between the neutral and the bold elements. Even though they’re the only yellow pieces in the room, they don’t clash with the other colorful pieces.

The Eames side chairs have a design that allows them to be both casual and elegant. We covered the first type of décor with the previous examples so now it’s time to illustrate the other dimension of the chairs. Here we have an elegant dining room that can be placed somewhere between modern and traditional in terms of interior décor.The robust wooden table contrasts with the sleek chairs and the delicate pendant lamp and a very beautiful balance is created.

This is a modern living room and the interesting thing about it is the fact that is basically has windows on three walls. This allows tons of natural light to get inside and allows everyone to admire the beautiful views. The décor of the room is simple and modern. The only touch of color is brought by the Eames chairs, this time features in red.

By now we covered a few different colors that these chairs can have. But this dining room is the first one to mix them. In this example we have a casual dining room décor with wooden floors and plenty of color. There’s a small, round table with four Eames side chairs, each one in a different color.

We now change the theme and we analyze a home office. As you can see, the décor is very simple, austere even. The work table is made of wood with a natural finish and it’s surrounded by various types of chairs, among which two white Eames side chairs. They look refreshing and they blend in perfectly.

And we’re back to dining rooms. It’s actually a living space with an open floor plan. The dining sector is not clearly delimitated. It’s placed in front on the window for more natural light and it’s composed of a round dining table and eight Eames side chairs, two of which are green. The rest of the chairs are white and match the table.

This is a vintage dining room décor. The color palette is very beautiful and so is the variety of textures. There’s also a nice balance of light and dark areas and the atmosphere seems very cozy and inviting. The décor features a classical round table with a white top and a metal base, surrounded by Eames side chairs, this type featuring wooden feet.

The Eames side chairs can also be successfully included in kitchen interior designs. For example, we have here a contemporary kitchen with a predominantly white interior, lots of wall storage units and shelves and a beautiful kitchen island/bar in the middle. In a corner there’s also a small, round, white table with two matching Eames side chairs and a comfortable, built-in bench.

And here’s another kitchen, this time with an eclectic interior. It’s divided into a work space for preparing the meals and an inviting dining space. This area is organized near an accent wall and features a white, round table and three pale turquoise Eames side chairs. On the wall there’s also a painting with a similar color palette.
