Vitra Eames® Elephant

Almost no other animal enjoys such popularity as the Eames Elephant Chair. Admired for its majestic size and loved for its proverbial good humor, it is part of our everyday experience as a child's cuddly toy, a storybook character and a majestic creature. Charles and Ray Eames also succumbed to their charms and in 1945 designed a toy elephant made of plywood. However, it never made it into mass production. The Eames Elephant is now for the first time in a plastic version for those it was originally intended for: children. Whether used indoors or outdoors, or as a decorative item in a child's room - this friendly-looking animal with its distinctive, over-sized ears is bound to bring cheer and enjoyment to both a child's and parent's heart.

About the Manufacturer

Founded in Weil am Rhein, Germany, in 1950 by Willi Fehlbaum, Vitra has been the retailer of the works of many internationally renowned furniture designers. Throughout those 50 years Vitra has had one goal: to make the place of work as appealing, productive, and healthy as possible. Vitra furniture can be found in countless successful companies and organizations, as well as in the homes of many private individuals with an affinity for design.

Convinced that rooms and interior design have a decisive influence on people's motivation, performance, and health, Vitra has made it their mission to develop furniture and furnishing systems that stimulate, inspire, and motivate, while also offering the body comfort, safety, and support. In order to attain this goal, Vitra has worked with their specialized team and renowned designers. Over the years, Vitra has exemplified that they are not afraid to experiment with new and bold ideas and eagerly anticipate and look forward to facing the new challenges of the world of work.

Vitra is vigorously persistent in creating products of the highest quality. Once in the factory, the Vitra staff manufactures the furniture to precise standards, individually ensuring the quality of each product. The focus on quality does not end at the factory door. Providing clients with premier service is just as important as manufacturing furniture. In order to further ensure the high quality in all Vitra products, Vitra has set up their own test center which monitors products against criteria that are far more stringent than the statutory standards.

    Love it

    from Porter Ranch, CA – Verified Buyer

    Our daughter loves her elephant. We placed it in our living room/tv room so she has her own "furniture" and she uses it often to play, sit on, or as a mini table for her snacks. It complements our mid-century modern style at home as well.

    I bought this because I love red, art, history, and elephants remind me of one of my best friends. I didn't really expect it to be all that fun or interesting to kids,,,, but it is! Kids love this thing and can't get enough of it! Such a simple thing, yet a huge hit! I am so happy with this piece of Art that is also sturdy and entertains the kiddos :) Great purchase!

    from WDM, Iowa – Verified Buyer

    This is a great item for display or if you have small kids, as a stool or bench. I bought it in red color for my 2 year old twins, they like to sit on it and pretend they are riding. It appears to be sturdy and well made, and easy enough to keep it clean. I am satisfied with my purchase and pleased with the quality of the customer service provided by Wayfair.com.
