Product Description

Eames® Compact Sofa

The Compact Sofa maintains a striking profile that evolved from a built-in sofa that Charles and Ray Eames, whose work is featured in the Museum’s collection, designed for the living room of their Pacific Palisades, California home. Two horizontal foam pads with welting cord form the sofa's comfortably high back, while a black enameled steel frame and chrome-plated tubular steel legs with stainless-steel glides make up the sofa's foundation. Upholstered in 100%-polyester crepe fabric. Made by Herman Miller®.

Mid-Century Design

Following World War II, a number of factors combined to foster a new direction in home products and furniture. New materials, such as molded plywood and plastic, and advances in mass production techniques opened a world of design options. Through the efforts of companies like Herman Miller, their longtime design director George Nelson, and the influential team of Charles and Ray Eames, these new designs could be produced for a broad market. A new vocabulary of ergonomic form, versatile function, and synthetic material emerged—and some of the most beloved furniture of the century was created.
