The chair champs at Herman Miller have tapped into the world of 3-D for their newest seat, the Eames Molded Wood Chair ($TBA). No glasses required for the company’s 3-D veneer technology as it apparently gives its wood veneer the “flexibility it needs to be molded into the complex curves of a single shell.” Choose from three veneers for the wood shell, including white ash, walnut, and santos palisander, which sounds really fancy and possibly capable of bringing you to a 4th dimension as well.

When furniture ends up at New York’s MoMA and the Art Institute of Chicago, you know it’s special. So, when Herman Miller releases a special edition of its popular Eames Lounge and Ottoman, that’s jackpot, baby. The new, limited edition Eames Lounge and Ottoman in a white ash colorway, keeps your butt comfy and your house in style.
Both pieces are handcrafted with 7-ply wood veneer shells. On top, the individually upholstered cushions are fastened to the shells, while maintaining the unblemished wood finish and the white powder-coated base. The comfort comes from the permanent tilt of the seat, relieving pressure off your spine.
