Charles Eames for Herman Miller Compact Sofa
This beautiful Charles Eames Compact sofa has been fully reupholstered and restored. The Eames sofa compact works where bulkier sofas don’t. The clean profile and crisp, light scale evolved from a built-in sofa that Charles and Ray Eames designed for the living room of their Pacific Palisades home. Unusual high back sofa offers Visual Comfort as well as sitting comfort for three with the rare chance to lean ones head back as if on a recliner or sprawl out as one would on a sofa. Featuring a folding system with 2 1/2-inch-thick molded urethane foam, upholstered in original orange vinyl with durable steel frame and legs on stainless steel glides.W 72” x D 24” x H 33.5” x SH 17”Charles Ormond Eames, Jr. (1907–1978) and Bernice Alexandra "Ray" Kaiser Eames (1912–1988) were an American married couple of industrial designers who made significant historical contributions to the development of modern architecture and furniture through the work of the Eames Office. They also worked in the fields of industrial and graphic design, fine art, and film.

Among their most recognized designs is the Eames Lounge Chair and the Eames Dining Chair.
