With pleasing proportions and exquisite materials, the Eames Executive Chair wears its name proudly. Yet, this 1959 design is known by an alias: the Time-Life Chair. Charles and Ray designed it for the lobbies of the Time-Life Building at Rockefeller Center.
Premium Materials, Fine Detailing
Upholster the Eames Executive Chair in your choice of premium leathers or rich textiles. Leathers are prized for the way they acquire wrinkles and creases and develop a rich patina over time. Textiles bring color and pattern to the design. Both coverings feature the detailing of fine furniture—welted edge seams for beauty and durability, upholstery-covered buttons for a tailored look, and an attractive, scuff-resistant aluminum frame and base.
Comfort Comes First
You'll understand the minute you settle into the Eames Executive Chair: comfort comes first. The chair's seat and back cushions are contoured and cushioned in thick foam—4½ inches in the seat, 3 inches in the back. Armrests are well padded. And with a width of 26 ½ inches, the chair provides plenty of room to settle in.
