Additional Information

Description

Also known as the Time-Life Chair, this iconic piece was originally created for the executive floors of New York City’s Time-Life Building. How those lucky executives were able to get an Eames chair designed just for them began with Time-Life Chairman Henry Luce. In 1959, Charles Eames asked Luce for photographs from the Time-Life archive to be used in a slideshow he was creating for the U.S. pavilion at the Moscow World Exhibition. Luce agreed, as long as Eames promised to return the favor one day. The following year, Eames made good on that promise, and 50 years later, the world is still enjoying the results of that arrangement. The generously sized Eames Executive Chair (1960) tilts, swivels and has a height-adjustable seat with thick, plush cushions. Backed by a 12-year manufacturer's warranty. This is the authentic Eames Executive Chair by Herman Miller. Made in U.S.A.

Design is for living. That maxim shaped a widespread shift in design during the 1940s and 1950s. It was a revolution of form, an exciting visual language that signaled a new age and a fresh start – and two of its prime movers were Charles and Ray Eames. The Eameses were a husband-and-wife team whose unique synergy led to a whole ...

Care and Assembly

View Instructions
Care & Maintenance With regular care and maintenance, your Herman Miller product will provide many years of superior performance and satisfaction. To maintain quality, please follow the cleaning procedures outlined here. The instructions for the care and maintenance of Herman Miller products are provided to you as a service. No warranty is implied since results may vary. Polished Aluminum For normal cleaning, apply a pre-softened paste wax to polished aluminum components following the manufacturer's instructions. In humid atmospheres near salt water, apply the wax once a month. In other areas, apply wax every three months to maintain the appearance of the aluminum. Coated Metal For normal cleaning, wash coated metal surfaces with a soft cloth soaked in detergent and warm water; rinse thoroughly and dry. Remove scuff marks from low-gloss coatings with pre-softened paste wax, following the manufacturer's instructions. Remove scuff marks and scratches from high-gloss coatings using automotive polishing compounds, either liquid or paste. After polishing, apply a pre-softened automotive paste wax to restore original sheen. For assistance in determining the appropriate color and gloss for Herman Miller touch-up paint, contact your Herman Miller Customer Service Representative. Fabric For normal cleaning, vacuum upholstery fabric using an upholstery attachment. If further cleaning is needed, dry-clean or spot clean fabric with solvent cleaner. Do not brush fabric or use a vacuum attachment with a rotary brush. Brushing may permanently damage the nap or change the character of the fabric. Do not apply water or any liquid solution. Wetting the fabric with any liquid solution may result in permanent damage. Vinyl Upholstery For normal cleaning, wash vinyl upholstery with a soft cloth or soft-bristled brush lathered with mild, nonabrasive soap and lukewarm water. Before the surface dries, wipe with a clean, dry cloth to remove any residue. This procedure may be repeated to remove stubborn dirt or stains. Ink spots can sometimes be removed by washing with soap and water followed by isopropyl alcohol. Do not use any cleaning method that is not listed above, as other methods may attack the vinyl and cause eventual degradation. Leather For normal cleaning, vacuum or dust frequently with a clean, dry cloth. If leather is soiled, it can be wiped with a damp soft cloth and a lather of any mild soap and a minimum amount of lukewarm water. Do not spot clean leather; clean the entire surface. Wipe clean with a damp cloth and dry with a clean, soft cloth. For spots and spills, wipe excess liquid immediately with a clean cloth or sponge; let the leather air dry. If the spot is still visible, further cleaning may be necessary. Sponge the entire surface—seat, back, or chair arm—with clean, lukewarm water. Let the leather air dry; never use a hair dryer or other heat source to dry leather. For stubborn spots and stains, apply a mild, nonabrasive soap solution with a clean, wet sponge. Rinse well and let air dry. For butter, oil, or grease, wipe the leather with a clean, dry cloth and let the remainder of the oil dissipate into the leather. Do not apply water or try to wash a grease spot. Do not use saddle soap, cleaning solvents, oils, furniture polishes, varnishes, abrasive cleaners, detergents, or ammonia on leather; they will ruin the finish, causing it to become sticky and cracked.

One of the best desk chairs ever made
This chair will break in slowly, last forever and never look dated.

Beautiful but back pain inducing chair
I bought this chair at DWR. The chair is beautiful and of truly excellent built quality. Sadly, the back is shaped the reverse of how it should be. There is zero lumbar support and the top of the back pushes you forward, forcing you into a slouch. I tried the chair for a few days, but after developing a terrible cramp in my back, I decided to return it. It's the first Eames designed chair that I have found uncomfortable. If you look at a photo of the chair taken from the side, you'll see what i mean. The curvature is the reverse of how it should be.

Overpriced!
Great chair! It's just overpriced. They even use fabric between the leather layers to save money. 100% of the cushions should be leather for this price.

Timeless-Lifetime Chair
Better name would be timeless-lifetime chair. Super comfy, high quality, luxurious, and definitely makes a statement with its iconic design. Thinking of getting another one in another color. Leather is ultra-high quality. Feels great for long periods of sitting due to the unusually wide seat. Highly recommend
