Eames Sofas

World renowned husband-and-wife duo Charles and Ray Eames produced just two models of sofa in their four decades of designing furniture together, but these two models are wonderfully stylish and functional pieces that have since become firm favourites within modern homes. Taking what they had learned from designing their iconic chairs, the pair set out to create larger pieces that would hold their own in family living rooms, all the while remaining innovative, practical and affordable. Today, these mid-century modern sofas work well with a variety of interior styles, providing a retro statement piece for any living room, office or entertainment space. Take a look at the range of Eames sofas listed on Vinterior today to discover comfortable, distinctive seating that is full of personality.

Why choose Eames sofas?

Eames sofas are available in a host of colours, sizes and upholstery options, so if you’re looking for an eye-catching vintage piece of furniture for your home, you’re sure to find a style that will align with your own interior design project. While Eames sofas are most often incorporated into modern, minimalist or mid-century style rooms, they offer a versatility that means they can work elsewhere, too, such as in clean Scandinavian or charming bohemian spaces.

The earliest Eames sofa design that was put into production was the Eames Compact Sofa, first manufactured in 1954. Boasting a sleek and slender shape with a distinctive high back, this sofa was designed to fit easily into any sized room. Charles and Ray found their inspiration for the Compact Sofa from a seating unit that had been built into the alcove of their own living room, which motivated them to come up with a comfortable, durable piece of furniture for their customers that would also be practical and space efficient. The Compact Sofa is a great choice for any living room, but it can also liven up offices, hallways and multi-use spaces to add a touch of statement style to your home.

The second of the Eames sofa models is known simply as the Eames Sofa, and was the last piece of furniture produced by the Eames Office. Ray, along with valued members of staff, completed the design after Charles died in 1978, having it ready for production by 1984. The Eames Sofa is a more luxurious style of seating, designed to complement the plush Eames Soft Pad Chairs and the elegant Chaise. Its soft foam seat cushions are upholstered in quality leather, which are then fixed to a rich walnut or teak frame and back panels. Leg and arm supports are made from polished aluminium for a modern finish, providing a sleek overall look.

A sumptuous place to sit back and relax, the Eames Sofa is perfect for larger living rooms and is available in both a two-seat and three-seat style.
