Herman Miller Eames Soft Pad Executive Chair, Leather Upholstery

designed by Charles and Ray Eames


At A Glance:
The Eames Soft Pad Executive Chair is another example of Charles and Ray Eames combining form and function into one amazing chair. Like other pieces in the soft pad group, this Executive Chair has a sleek base and 2" thick seat pads that provide outstanding comfort. The lightweight aluminum frame sits on a 5-star base with a tilt-swivel mechanism, seat height adjustment and casters for enhanced mobility. This model of the Eames Soft Pad Executive Chair is available in a variety of leather upholstery options. The upholstery provides outstanding comfort and a sleek contrast of materials between metal and supple leather.

This executive chair was made especially for the office, whether it's a home office or in the workplace. Though it could be used effectively in the home, the look and feel of the chair make it clear that this is a serious chair, a work chair, a prestigious chair for any office - as Charles and Ray Eames intended. Featuring a taller back than others in the collection, with three back cushion segments, the chair is never overbearing or intimidating; that's not the way Charles and Ray Eames built their furniture. They didn't believe in exclusion of any kind when it came to design. They believed that all types of people should have access to great design in their homes and offices, and that idea drove them throughout their careers. The Eames Soft Pad Executive Chair is just one more example of design that looks amazing, feels great, and is definitely attainable.

Also available fabric upholstery. See the entire Eames Soft Pad Chair collection.

What's To Like:
The Eames Soft Pad Executive Chair is high backed and stately, but not dated or aged in any way. It looks as fresh and attractive today as it did when it first came off the line in 1969. It's funny; to get a contemporary office chair, one that's modern and cutting edge yet technologically advanced and ergonomic, you can go back four decades and get exactly what you want. The Eames Soft Pad Executive Chair. This is a chair for the corner office the big desk, the important boardroom. While of course it can also be used in the regular office and the meeting room, the grandeur of the chair is best presented in equally prestigious environs. The Eames Soft Pad Executive Chair has in its name its ultimate use; as the chair of the executive. The prestige of the chair and its rich, luxurious leather combines with the shine and newness of the polished aluminum to create a beguiling and undeniably gorgeous chair. It's perfect for the office.

What's Not To Like:
In the home, this chair would really only be of use in a home office setting, as it has casters and doesn't "lounge" (though it does tilt). In that sense, it is limited to work areas, where it shines as a luxurious alternative to run-of-the-mill office chairs. Another slight drawback is that it doesn't have adjustable arms. But they wouldn't look nearly as good, so Herman Miller has done well not to update the chair by changing the arms.

The Bottom Line:
Wherever you use the Eames Soft Pad Executive Chair, it's going to keep you comfortable and exude prestige. And that describes the perfect executive chair. It also meshes well with most design schemes; the materials fit well in nearly any environment. Always comfortable and always beautiful, this is a chair anyone can enjoy.


Details:

  • 2"-thick upholstered foam cushions
  • 5-star aluminum base, lightweight aluminum frame
  • 2" casters for carpet or hard floor mobility
  • Choose from Manual seat height adjustment or Pneumatic seat height adjustment with tilt lock

Leather Options:

  • Stock Leather
    Chromium free and from Austria this stock Herman Miller leather is a winner for most. With a matte, soft feel this is the most popular leather used on Herman Miller upholstered items.
  • Open Line Leather
    Austrian by birth, yours by choice. Open Line leather is closest to the stock Herman Miller leathers but available in a wider array of colors.
  • MCL Leather
    Italian by birth, MCL has a soft hand and natural touch with great performance; and it's easy on the earth. It will show more wrinkles over time and wear well. Avoid high-wear applications that require high cleanability and those which expose the leather to direct sunlight. It has a medium grain and shine and is a nice upgrade from the standard leather for the price.
  • Dream Cow Leather
    With a gentle calfskin grain (it's not calfskin though, its European full grain aniline dyed cowhide), this leather is soft and comes in many great colors to accent your decor. This is a leather of great versatility, perfect when Royal Hide is out of budget, but where the look is wanted.
  • Metallic Dream Cow Leather
    A gentle calfskin grain (again, not calfskin but European full grain aniline dyed cowhide), infused with metals and soft shine, on cowhide for huge versatility. Updated, offbeat, moody colors.
  • All Grain Leather
    Not too big - not too small - just "All Grain". Color and quality together wedding grain and color, always with a feeling of luxury. European full grain aniline dyed cowhide powered by Crypton, "All Grain" becomes an easy choice for high traffic areas and commercial offices.
  • Royal Hide Leather
    This versatile leather is the most beautiful of its kind. The color range is huge, reflecting its broad applicability. It will develop a rich patina over time, making it a great heirloom, eliminating the need for reupholstery. A European full grain aniline dyed cowhide leather with no limits - sky, earth, sea.
