Designers: Charles and Ray Eames
A cushy cousin of the Aluminum Group, Soft Pad is a luxurious chair that bears the unmistakable Eames stamp. The Executive chair offers an extra 7 ¼ inches of back height. Now available with new finish colors and materials.
It's a trick only Charles and Ray Eames could pull off: Chairs designed in 1958 as outdoor seating still look classic and contemporary in 21st century interiors. The chairs are equipped with an innovative suspension that creates a firm, flexible "sitting pocket". It conforms subtly and comfortably to your body's shape.
With an aluminum frame and base, this executive chair is strong yet lightweight and easy to move. Earth-friendly, too: made of 67 percent recycled materials and 90 percent recyclable at the end of its useful life.

We've added a number of new options to let you create the exact chair you want. You can choose leather or fabric upholstery. If you choose leather, you can opt for standard leather or our new premium leather, a semi-aniline, dyed leather with 100 percent natural full grain. Color variations and surface marks are an inherent characteristic of this material, which will acquire wrinkles and creases and develop a rich patina over time. The new premium leather is available in black and pearl.
To complement the lighter materials—including white leather—we are also offering powder coat finishes on the base and frame in white and graphite satin, along with polished aluminum.

Charles and Ray Eames were always concerned about the comfort of their furniture. They stretched a continuous piece of seat-back upholstery tautly between the aluminum side ribs to make a flexible pocket that provides support as you sit. The Executive chair has three upholstered foam cushions on the back and one on the seat.
Chairs have a 5-star base with tilt-swivel mechanism, manual or optional pneumatic seat-height adjustment, and tilt lock feature.
