Herman Miller Eames Turned Stool

Select Style

Designed for the lobbies of New York City's Time-Life Building, the Eames Turned Stools (1960) – or “perchers,” as Charles and Ray Eames called them – serve equally well as elegant side tables or sturdy overflow seating. The stools were inspired by a wooden African seat Ray Eames had purchased. She led their design, drawing upon her training in sculpture to create multiple variations lathed into blocks of solid walnut. The Eameses were so enamored with the stools that they used them throughout their Pacific Palisades home.


The stools also can be used side tables: Both ends are slightly concave, and either side can serve as the “top.” These are the authentic Eames Turned Stools by Herman Miller.

  • Can serve as a seat or side table.
  • Made of solid walnut or ash.
  • Concave top and bottom; which side is the “top” is up to you.
  • Created for the lobbies of the Time-Life Building in New York City.

Charles and Ray Eames

Design is for living. That maxim shaped a widespread shift in design during the 1940s and '50s. It was a revolution of form, an exciting visual language that signaled a new age and a fresh start – and two of its prime movers were Charles and Ray Eames. This husband-and-wife team's unique synergy led to a whole new look in furniture. Lean and modern. Sleek and simple. Beautifully functional.
