All is not lost, with hard to find renovation and replacement Eames seating and chair parts.
There is nothing worse than a broken foot or damaged base, just ask an original Eames Lounge Chair owner with a damaged shock mount. Luckily for us, we can find replacement, original OEM and renovation parts for sale right here on the eames.com marketplace.
Despite them being the very best of design, of the highest quality manufacture, the test of time comes to everything in the end. Just ask the owners of a fiberglass chair with broken shock mounts or a base that’s pitted or missing a foot. Without the ability to replace these detailed parts the whole thing would be redundant, and this would be a disaster, especially as the availability of OEM parts is all but impossible.
We are thankful therefore to have this page dedicated to original and replacement parts to keep your Eames Chair going for decades to come. Respectable sellers will be offering everything from reclaimed bases, to new (authentic manufacturer) bases, shock mounts, feet and anything else that can keep your original Eames seating going for years to come.
Complete Eames chair bases that you will find on the eames.com marketplace must be made by a licensed original manufacturer and no aftermarket or reproduction articles are allowed. In terms of smaller parts such as bearings, mounts, feet and glides; quality aftermarket parts are allowed given that they are not available from the original manufacturers in many cases.
Prolonging the life of an Eames Chair is vital within the enthusiast community and quality, sympathetic to the original components can do that.
