On My Eames

Charles & Ray Eames are the gift that just keeps giving. Designed in the 1950's, it is safe to say that the Eames Plastic Chair range has never gone out of fashion. However, the age of social media has seen the DSR in particular enjoy a global explosion in mainstream popular culture. The Eames chairs are quickly becoming the most 'Instagrammable' pieces of the 21st century – there is even an account dedicated to #OnMyEames created by menswear & lifestyle influencer Fredrik Risvik.

With clean lines, beautiful sustainable materials and quality manufacturing processes, the Eames Plastic Chairs sit perfectly with coveted brands such as Cos, Common Projects, APC, Acne Studios, Chanel, Kinfolk and are the perfect accompaniment to Scandinavian inspired interior spaces.

With great design comes great responsibility. That's why we vow to only ever sell design originals from licensed manufacturers. If you're interested in finding out more about spotting a "Real Versus Replica" you can do so here. In the meantime, get inspired with these beautiful Instagram shots from the compilation account "OnMyEames".

New measures have recently been put in place to outlaw the selling of replica furniture in the UK, protecting the integrity of these design classics. Think about it, if you wouldn't buy a fake Chanel bag, or some fake Yeezy's...why buy a fake Eames?

Thank You Messages

I have rarely experienced such excellent quality advice, support and reliability. Your staff communicate effectively and helpfully. I am a truly satisfied customer. I love my String Shelving and I will not hesitate to return to Utility for my next purchase. Thank you!

Your customer service has been fantastic. I'm seriously impressed. Really pleased to be able to place the bigger order and make your time worthwhile. I think I need to send you a medal!

I just wanted to express my thanks again for your great customer service. I ordered my items less than 24 hours ago and I’ve amended my order- yet I still have my order here with me now. You went out of your way to deliver my order and I’m very grateful. I wish more places had people like you :-)

Excellent customer service and immediate response to enquiry (live chat). Very happy every time used Utility both online and on high street.

I couldn't be happier with the custom made sofa bought through the online store. It is perfect and made all the more enjoyable by buying it through the guys at utility. Ben and Paul who delivered the sofa were amazing, kind and really helpful in a difficult situation (of course the lift broke when I was getting something delivered). Would highly recommend!

Just wanted to message and say that I'm a big fan of the Utility Stores and the types of products you guys sell. I work close by to the Manchester store at University Green, so I'm popping in a fair bit generally for cards, gifts, etc. I just nipped in again this afternoon about one product I'd bought earlier and the staff were super helpful and attentive. It made it really easy, and I was in and out in no time.

Just wanted to drop you guys a quick note to say how happy I am with the service I have had. Especially the two guys who delivered/carried into an awkward space/built/then took away the packaging, not to mention then gave me a lift into town. Thank you. Plus the sofa looks amazing. I will definitely be using you guys more in the future and will highly recommend you to anyone who will listen.

Comment: I just wanted to say that Esther on the checkout in the L1 store made my day today she was so friendly
