Irving Armchair Leather - Wood Legs
This is Maxwell Blake's replica of the 1950s Saarinen Executive armchair in leather, with wood legs. An ever popular seating choice of industry professionals such as architects and interior designers, this chair is one of our top sellers thanks to its beautiful design and affordable price tag.
Considered by some to be a purist when it came to his approach towards architecture and interior design, Eero Saarinen sought the essential idea and reduced it to the most effective structural solution within an overall unity of design. To that end, his Executive Chair series recognized the importance of user comfort; Saarinen became the first to construct a chair shell from fiberglass, a pliable material that flexes in response to body weight.
At Maxwell Blake, we pay homage to the original design, making every effort to produce a chair that is comparable in quality. We use real, steam bent, solid wood legs - not plywood - including American Walnut or Natural, Black or Wenge (espresso) stained Ash wood. The legs are complemented by your choice of luxurious leather upholstery, over foam cushioning, with matching full surround welt detailing. The Saarinen armchair is also sold separately with the classic stainless steel leg and includes armless and caster wheel versions. The Saarinen executive armchair makes a handsome seating option for a variety of spaces including the dining room, office, or living room accent chair.
