Mid-Century modern Eames molded plastic chairs and all those seats from chair designers inspired by that (now) classic chair seem to be experiencing a resurgence today. Though never far from the heart of modern furniture lovers, the molded plastic chair is on the must-have list of many homeowners and apartment dwellers. From contemporary spaces to country homes, here’s a glimpse into the charm and versatility of the molded shell chair:
These chairs come in an amazing array of colors. From white or cream to brilliant orange, it’s easy to mix and match color, leg material and wires.
Here, white shells with wood legs and black wires work extremely well around a rectangular wood table in an all wood environment.
Eames’ chairs (or any molded plastic chair design) can be integrated into many style rooms. Don’t they fit perfectly into this coastal chic home?
A lovely mix of shell colors and leg designs bring this space to life. Setting atop a black and white rug, the table and molded plastic chairs show off their good looks.
Black shell armchairs seem to be made for this “contemporary meets rustic” dining room. These classic chairs are perfect around a sleek wood table.
In shades of green and a single pop of camel, these plastic shells sit atop black all-wire bases. They look elegant against the black accent wall, don’t you think?
Great vintage style and plastic molded chairs whether designed by Eames like these black classics or of a more current iteration make for a superb collaboration. Who knew Eames and Moooi could play well together?
We don’t often think of modern plastic chairs in country style rooms. However, these pale yellow and green seem right at home with this rustic trestle table.
