Herman Miller Seating 101

Have you ever wondered if you could hold your own in a conversation about classic 20th century seating? If someone references the Eames Lounge Chair, do you immediately reminisce about how blissfully comfortable you were last time you stretched out in one? Does the word “marshmallow” bring to mind a white sticky confection or a funky, playful sofa?

Staying fluent in the language of furniture classics can be a challenge, but to help you get started, we have selected ten 20th Century seating designs that every design aficionado should know. (Hint: Get to know the designs of Ray and Charles Eames and George Nelson).

(1) Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman: Stunning and incredibly comfortable, this is the king of lounge chairs. Goodbye recliner!

(2) Eames Molded Plywood Chair: Who knew plywood could be so chic?

(3) Eames Molded Plastic Chair: Available in several bold colors with a variety of base options, this chair never gets boring.

(4) Nelson Swag Chair: Playful yet sophisticated, it’s the perfect compliment to the Nelson Swag Desk.

(5) Nelson Marshmallow Sofa: This isn’t your grandmother’s sofa (unless your grandmother loves modern furniture).

(6) Nelson Coconut Chair: Do you see the resemblance?

(7) Goetz Sofa: In a corporate office or a studio apartment, this sofa makes a statement.

(8) Eames Tandem Sling Chair: If you must wait, at least you can wait in style.

(9) Eames Aluminum Group Management Chair: Nothing says management better than a beautiful, modern throne behind a desk.

(10) Nelson Platform Bench: Is it a bench or a table? Or both?
