Eames Compact Sofa
Description
Charles and Ray Eames’ compact couch is high design that keeps a low profile. The prototype was built-in seating from the Eames’ own Pacific Palisades home. They enjoyed it so much that they created a freestanding model that’s been in production since 1954. It seats three but slips into spaces too small for bulky, traditional sofas. The cushioned pads that form the back are reinforced with cord welting and the seat cushions are supported by concealed webbing on a steel and spring armature. A black enamel finish helps the steel frame disappear, while the legs are polished and chrome-plated to let them shine. In a small living room, vestibule, home office, or office reception room, if offers ample seating without crowding the space. It’s also at home in larger spaces where a more minimal, modern look is in order. Made in the USA by Herman Miller®, a manufacturer in MoMA’s collection.

Fueled by a passion for addressing everyday human needs and a boundless enthusiasm for experimentation, husband-and-wife design team Charles (1907-1978) and Ray (1912-1988) Eames were among the most influential designers of the twentieth century. Their landmark contributions include furniture, architecture, film, and graphics. They were pioneers in the molding of plywood, which was developed from their experiments and projects for the U.S. Navy during World War II. Their association with the Museum goes back to 1940, with a joint entry with Eero Saarinen in the MoMA competition "Organic Design in Home Furnishings." Since then, nearly 100 examples of their work have entered the Museum's design collection.
