Executive Work Chair

The Executive Work Chair (AKA “Time-Life Chair”), designed by Charles Eames.

The only choice when looking for the absolute best mid century modern executive style office chairs.

There is no other.

Copied and Envied for 60 Years

In 1960, the founder of Time Inc. asked if the Eameses could redesign the lobby of the Time & Life building in New York City.

They agreed and included in that design were now infamous lobby chairs built for comfort.

And the “Time Life Chair” was born.

Ever since, other brands and copycats have tried to duplicate the look, feel and success of the Executive Work Chair.

Hollywood Approved

Eames, the designer of the executive suite.


He was a set designer and consultant for the 1953 movie, Executive Suite.

In fact, Charles Eames even designed an office for Twentieth Century Fox.

Additionally, many Hollywood stars would purchase the Eames’ furniture designs for their own homes.

American, Traditional Luxury

Herman Miller is an American furniture manufacturing company known all over the world.

Charles Eames and his wife Ray worked closely with Herman Miller many times over the history of their design studio.

This Time Life Chair was one of those projects.

Herman Miller still manufactures these chairs to this day.

Now you can own a piece of historic design for your office.

Dream Cow Leather

The default Austrian stock leather is pretty great as it is.

Or upgrade to Italian or Dream Cow leathers if you really want to max this out.

Italian MCL leather is soft and mid grained, and will show wear over time, adding to the character.

Dream Cow leather is full grain, European cowhide that’s available in various color options.

In fact, there’s over 50 different leather color options to perfectly match your office style.
