Vitra Eames DSR Side Chair, Cream

Product information

Ultra-stylish and surprisingly comfortable, the iconic Eames DSR is made from a moulded seat that's designed for every 'body', atop a gleaming architectural chrome base. Every colour in our selection complements each other, so you can mix and match to suit your decor.

Highly influential and endlessly imitated, husband and wife team Charles and Ray Eames revolutionised 20th Century furniture design. They combined their respective disciplines in architecture and modern art with low-cost yet durable materials to create perfectly balanced, functional furniture.

The Eames’ works have proved to be real ‘designs for life’: they’re iconic art pieces and objects of desire, yet utterly practical.

Originally made in fibreglass for the 1950 MOMA Low Cost Furniture design competition, the DSR was the first industrially-produced plastic chair.

Q & As

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 14 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Gorgeous & Comfortable! Bought two of these chairs in 'Ocean' for a seating area in our kitchen. Not only do these chairs look gorgeous, they are extremely comfortable, lightweight and do not scratch the floor when moved. Extremely glad I went for the 'real deal' as opposed to a reproduction. 28 November 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Ocean Chair Purchased six of these Chairs in 3 colours Comfortable & look great Ocean Chairs now have very visible White scratch marks on seat due to very little use & considering the cost we did expect them to last longer. 25 June 2014

Rated 5 out of 5 by excellent This is the second time we order from john lewis and on both occasions, the delivery were on-time as promised. This time, we ordered the DSR, we tried several other places and they didn't have the mustard colour in-stock and needs 4 weeks minimum for delivery. Luckily we found out that John Lewis also sells Vitra furnitures. Yes, they came in on time as stated during ordering. Thanks for the good service! 03 December 2012
