      These chairs are being used in my dining room but can really be used anywhere. I am mixing chairs in my dining room and these chairs give a pop to an otherwise formal area. They are Eames and awesome and high quality. Love Love Love.

        We use these chairs in our dining room and they are perfect. We live in a 3 bedroom condo and the dining room opens to the kitchen. I didn't want tall dining room chairs as I thought it would take up visual space in the room.

        Customer comments about Eames® Molded Plastic Side Chair with 4-Leg Base in White by Herman Miller®:

        I love these chairs. We ordered them for our dining room and they look amazing. I love seeing people's reactions to them as they are a little different from the norm. I was anxious about finding a table low enough in height to fit them but we went with a standard 30 inch and they look and feel great. They are easily transported to our office or a bedroom when we need an extra seat. I could not happier with this purchase.

        Service and delivery comments:

        Delivery was on time and they communicated well about when they were coming which helped us plan ahead. Our product arrived in perfect condition. Customer service was awesome. I even spoke with the same person during multiple calls. The follow up after was also great. I felt like the company really cared about delivering great service and product.

          We used this chair in a very sunny location in our house. I don't think I will have to worry about color fading. Also, the material is great with kids and pets - durable and easy to clean. It is nice to have a beautiful design piece and not have to worry about it being too precious.

            Customer comments about Eames® Molded Plastic Side Chair with 4-Leg Base in Aqua Sky by Herman Miller®:

            Love, love, love these chairs. They are sturdy without being bulky. With wood floors and (an amazing Room & Board) wood table, they bring some fun, brightness, levity to the kitchen table. And this is a classic can't-go-wrong style. There is a reason these chairs are still in demand after 40+ years in production!

            Also, we live in a small 1930 bungalow. The simple leg design, as opposed to the Eiffel base for example, keep the dining area looking clean and uncluttered.

            The one surprise with these chairs has been the surface. We expected it to be smooth, like the old molded chairs we've known. Instead it has a slight grainy texture, giving it more of a matte finish than shiny finish. I don't consider this a "con," just different than we expected.

              Q:

              When do you plan on offering this in fiberglass? I don't want custom molded plastic. Herman Miller announced that they will return to making their Eames chairs with fiberglass recently.
