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 side chair is a low-back, armless chair that works as well in your dining area at home as it does in the office. Now available with new material and finish options with a 4-star base.
It's a trick only Charles and Ray Eames could pull off: Chairs designed in 1958 as outdoor seating still look both classic and contemporary in 21st century interiors.
These Eames chairs are equipped with an innovative suspension that creates a firm, flexible "sitting pocket." It conforms subtly to your body's shape and maintains your comfort.
With an aluminum frame and base, the 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.

Soft Pad chairs are made of 67 percent recycled materials and are 90 percent recyclable at the end of their useful life.
Charles and Ray Eames were always concerned about the comfort of their furniture. On the Aluminum Group chairs, 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 side chair has two 2-inch-thick upholstered foam cushions on the back and one on the seat. You can have the chair in leather or in one of many fabric options.
