Throughout the 1950s and into the early 1960s, the Eames Office designed and installed the interiors and furniture groupings for Herman Miller’s Los Angeles showroom (the building was also an Eames design.

The Eameses reorganized the interior spaces of the showroom for each opening—which usually coincided with the introduction of a new item or line of furniture—and incorporated other furniture and fabrics from the Nelson and Girard design offices.

Charles and Ray designed much of the new furniture introduced in this period, including the Eames Plastic Armchairs and Side Chairs, and a variation of the Eames Folding Table.
