Entries in dining room (59)
A reader named Monica recently scored 3 Eames LCM chairs at an estate sale (lucky girl!). Here's her dilemma: I'd like to use them as dining chairs, but I know they're more lounge-type chairs (hence the L in the name). They're not super low, but you end up leaning back more than in a regular dining chair. I see the Eames shell chairs in dining rooms all the time, but never these. Do you have any examples of dining rooms that use these? I'm thinking about pairing them with a wood table and a built-in- or freestanding-bench along the other side. They actually come in a 16" lounge version which is what Monica has, and an 18" dining chair version. She's trying to convince her husband they will work as dining chairs because she has enough occasional chairs (although I personally think there's no such thing as too many chairs!). I went through my photo stash and found photos of it as a dining chair, and I threw in some of the LCW version too at the end. I love these as dining chairs - they're a great break from the normal Eames molded plastic chairs everyone seems to use.
