Nelson Coconut Lounge Chair shown in Black leather, Chrome base.
As the lines blur between how and where we work and live, people are redefining their perceptions of what a space can be. This reality, remarkably envisioned in 1952 by George Nelson as “a daytime living room where work can be done under less tension with fewer distractions,” is deftly addressed with Living and Lounge offerings.
The striking Coconut Lounge Chair merges seat, back, and arms in a single form—synthesizing art and engineering into a piece that redefines the interplay of beauty and comfort. Here, the combination was informed by a coconut slice, the apparent result of George Nelson’s mantra: “Total design is nothing more or less than a process of relating everything to everything.”
Nelson said he developed his chair to offer comfort and freedom of movement to lounge seating. With the design’s shallow sides, leather-upholstered curves, and foam-rubber padding, he achieves it; the chair invites you to sit in any position, and work or relax fully with unexpected ease.

Elegant and unapologetically playful, George Nelson’s vibrant Pedestal Stool is a welcome reissue of its original 1954 design. It shifts effortlessly from everyday spaces to formal settings, with a compact size that allows it to fit into lighter spaces or to be grouped together in a larger environment to add color, interest, and utility.
Ever the pragmatist, Nelson incorporated the same slim, sculptural base found on this stool into his Pedestal Table. With clean, graceful lines, the versatile classic comes in three sizes with different finish options, and may be used casually or formally in a variety of ways: end table, coffee table, or café table.

Marrying the flexibility and functionality of sectional seating with the elegance of a highly tailored sofa, BassamFellows’ lounge seating group is built on a series of simple base elements from which a full array of configurations can be specified—from a club chair and ottoman to an expansive corner sectional. Supported on elegantly tall steel legs, Tuxedo’s underpinnings are nearly invisible. The crisply tailored upholstery that covers the slim, dual-density foam cushions furthers its lightweight appearance. Moreover, its modular grid allows for any Tuxedo design to be easily coupled with other pieces in the Tuxedo range.

Ward Bennett consistently used one approach in his work: seeing beyond the surface to reduce a design to its very essence. This ethos manifests fully in his versatile I Beam Table. Based on a section of supportive I beam, the table co-opts the form, texture, and tone of twentieth-century architecture’s iconic building material. Alone, its powder-coated cast aluminum base acts as a clean, durable pedestal or side table. Topped with glass or stone options, it functions as a quietly refined coffee table around which a range of seating may be comfortably placed. Without trying to make a statement, the design brings subtlety and sophistication to any space.

This timeless design by Ward Bennett draws the eye downward to its distinctive base, a straightforward X shape welded from tubular steel and mounted on parallel rails.

Ray Eames, who trained as a sculptor, designed these distinctive pieces to accompany the padded leather swivel chairs her husband Charles created for the lobby of the ultra-modern Time & Life Building—then the largest slab-formed skyscraper in New York City. Beautifully versatile with a touch of charm, the sculptural occasional pieces can function as stools, side tables, or something in between. Crafted from solid‐turned walnut, their concave tops and bottoms pair with decorative mid‐sections. Used alone or in groups, the three unique designs offer any space a flexible selection of seats and surfaces.

An icon of twentieth-century design, this visionary table fuses art and the everyday within its graceful silhouette. Sculptor Isamu Noguchi created his distinctive table by balancing a freeform glass top on two solid wood legs that interlock to form a selfstabilizing tripod. The artful result does not diminish its practical design—a sturdy and durable table, now available in a white ash, as well as Noguchi black, walnut, and natural cherry base finish options. Noguchi’s most recognized work, the piece is a true marriage of form and function. “Everything is sculpture,” explained Noguchi.

Ward Bennett excelled at paring designs down to the simplest denominator, while also finding comfort in every piece he created. This design, which he described as his most comfortable chair ever, is evidence of how he achieved that balance. Inspired by the hammock-style chaise transatlantique, the deck chair popular on ocean liners of the past, it blends minimalist looks with functional portability, making it a practical choice for private and public spaces alike. Available in a metal or wood frame and a range of upholstery options.

Charles and Ray Eameses’ low, elongated table embodies all the attributes of classic Eames piece: Playful and functional. Lean and modern. Sophisticated and beautifully simple. Often called “the surboard table,” this sleek design stretches out dramatically in front of a sofa or grouping of chairs. Its 20-degree beveled edge brings out the grain of the laminate plywood top, synchronizing with its signature wire base to make a striking statement in any space created to accommodate how we live, work, or play today.

This graceful, luxurious sofa is the last piece of furniture produced by the Eames Design Office. Fittingly, it places emphasis on beautiful materials and simplified forms. An angled profile and clean planes showcase its combination of rich walnut or teak, polished aluminum, and soft upholstery, which now includes new MCL Leather options. Designed to complement the Eameses’ plush soft pad chairs and sleek chaise, the 2- or 3-seat sofa also harmonizes effortlessly with other Collection pieces—and exemplifies the best in furniture design at work and at home.

Innovation and problem-solving drove everything Charles and Ray Eames produced. Their development of a technique to mold sheets of lightweight plywood veneer into gently curved shapes helped revolutionize splints for the Navy during World War II. Afterward, it helped revolutionize the design of modern furniture. The introduction of their molded plywood lounge chair—in both wood and metal base options—imparted a hard material with a soft appearance, creating an inviting seat of unlikely comfort. Soon after, the material took shape as these now-classic coffee tables, dining chairs, and folding screens.

Irwin Miller’s house—in polished aluminum or a durable powder-coated finish for outdoor use. With the inimitable Eames touch, each versatile piece offers its own take on elegance and function, blending effortlessly in any environment as a cocktail or coffee table, dining or work table.

This minimalist, diminutive design is perfect for a leaner space. In production for over five decades, the sofa has concealed reinforced webbing for support, an enamel steel frame, and tubular steel legs. It offers a wide selection of materials, including textiles by Alexander Girard, whose bold colors and textures were first introduced for Herman Miller in 1952.

Though often heralded for his patterns, Girard produced a timeless body of woven textures for Herman Miller. Our first re‐edition of his textiles is reproduced as faithfully as possible in weave and color with one enhancement: they now use the most advanced environmental constructions and materials available.

Boasting the “warm, receptive look of a well‐used first baseman’s mitt,” this chair and ottoman have been instantly recognizable since their introduction. An innovative amalgam of traditional club chairs and the Eameses’ experiments in molding wood, the set has not only endured—it has become one of the most significant furniture designs of the twentieth century.
Plywood shells are available in cherry, walnut, santos palisander, and white ash, a new veneer finished with a process that arrests wood in a “freshly cut” state, resulting in a creamy white color that resists yellowing. Both santos palisander and walnut are also offered in a hand‐rubbed oil finish, which resembles the look of the original design.
