“The DCM (“dining chair, metal legs”) was designed in 1946. This wonderful and extremely comfortable chair has been in continuous production at Herman Miller since 1949. The molded plywood dining chairs offer the same exceptional comfort and enduring style as the lounge chairs. But they’re sized to work at the table.

These Eames chairs are molded to fit the contours of the body, so sitting on this icon of modern design feels good. By molding thin sheets of lightweight veneer into gently curved shapes, Charles and Ray Eames managed to give a hard material a soft appearance and establish the foundation for the design of modern furniture.”

Based on the Eames LCW, the Eames DCM appeals to me as its the more utilitarian, lighter sibling. I love the weightless feeling this chair has when placed in an interior.

“In 1999, in its Millennium issue,Time magazine named the chairs Best Design of the 20th Century. Runner-up: a steam locomotive.”
