Today the Plastic Chairs by Charles and Ray Eames seem like archetypes of the genre of chairs whose shell can be combined with diverse bases. The combination of the wooden base with the plastic shell of the DAW (Dining Height Armchair Wood Base) produces a rich contrast of materials. The seat shells are also available with a seat cushion or full upholstery.

Material description
- Seat shell:  dyed-through polypropylene. All models are available with a seat cushion (screwed to the seat shell) or full upholstery. The fully upholstered version has moulded polyurethane foam padding covered in fabric, attached to the shell with a welted edge. Different shell and upholstery colours and various bases provide a multitude of possible combinations.
- Options:  the Eames Plastic Chair is available as a visitor chair, dining chair, rocking chair, swivel chair or in stacking versions and with ganging brackets for row seating. Beam-mounted shells are suited for use in waiting areas.
- Base:  wooden base in various shades of maple or honey-toned ash, stained and lacquered finish. Steel rod cross struts in basic dark. (DAW = Dining Height - Armchair Wood Base)
- Origin of wood:  ash (Fraxinus excelsior) and maple (Acer platanoides) from Western Europe and/or Poland.
