Classic Furniture Profile
Walnut Stools by Charles and Ray Eames
These walnut stools were originally designed for the lobby of the Time Life Building in New York City.
Being viewed by thousands of people, they soon became very popular and are now seen as yet another classic furniture design by Charles and Ray Eames.
These are constructed of solid walnut timber turned on a lathe.
Their design simplicity allows the complexity of the timber graining to provide an ever changing interest as the natural originality of timber provides. A natural form of decoration which makes every stool unique.
At first glance they appear to be traditional in form, but could sit quite comfortably in a contemporary environment due to the simplicity of lines. Obviously designed as stools they are multifunctional and can also be used as side tables, drinks table, occasional low table or sculptural piece on display. They are warm to sit on, very hard wearing and have a stable and sturdy base.
