Description The great portfolio of Charles & Ray Eames is widely celebrated and serves as a model of inspiration for designers to this day. A momentous chapter in said portfolio is devoted to an important commission the Eames’ team received to design furniture for the Time Life Building in New York City which included a series of tables and most important; the Eames “Time Life” Executive Chair.

The Eames’ intentions were to capture the comfort of their popular Eames Lounge Chair in a more streamlined fashion using lessons learned from their Aluminum Group range. The shown model is a contemporary version of the chair as it exists today. This iteration chair features a swivel base equipped with tilt and height adjustment, perfect for achieving optimal comfort. While in the past Herman Miller produced a 4-star base on this design, the shown 5-star base is currently in production.

Eames Time-Life Executive Chairs are often well used are rarely seen in this spectacular condition. The original Black leather is as soft as silk and the support in each cushion remains plush like a cloud. The aluminum hardware is factory coated in a graphite finish. Overall, this Eames Time-Life Executive Chair is a preserved design artifact showing only minor wear consistent with age and history. It’s now ready for yet another life.
