Charles and Ray Eames often created variations of their chair designs by combining one seat shell with different base frames. From the very begining the Plywood Group was available with a chromed tubular steel base frame, which lent the chair a lighter look and contrasting materials made the appearance all the more exciting.

Alongside models with no upholstery, the Eameses also designed versions with cowhide or leather upholstery. The covers rest on a thin wedge of foam to provide additional comfort. As part of the Vitra Home Collection, the LCMs with calfskin or leather covers are now available again for the first time in decades.
