designed by Charles and Ray Eames
At A Glance:
The Eames Executive Work Chair was designed in 1960 for the lobby of the Time-Life Building, and so has been called the Time-Life Chair in addition to its Eames name. Exceptionally generous in size, this Eames classic has deep cushions and padded arms - unmistakable hallmarks of a chair steeped in rich tradition as well as elegant comfort.
The Executive Work Chair features the highest quality materials, such as any executive would expect in the home or office. The chair is large, but is appropriate for people of any size because of its adjustable seat height. Adjust your Eames Time-Life Chair to work well with your body type and desk size. The Eames Work Chair has a 5-Star base with a tilt and swivel mechanism that allows you to control how far back you want to go.
The highly polished aluminum armrests and seat base accentuate the high end style and sophistication of the Eames Executive Chair. Customize your Eames Time-Life Chair by choosing either a caster base or 0.5" glides. The base with glides is perfect for a room layout that calls for a stationary chair that remains in a set location. If you need an Eames Work Chair that allows for more mobility, smooth-rolling casters will let you roam from desk to desk in your office. When selecting a caster base for your carpeted surface, choose between chrome and black finishes.
