Saarinen Executive Armchairs
I didn't have a chance to snap a 'before' picture, but we reupholstered 4 Saarinen Executive armchairs recently and they are as good as new.
Eero Saarinen designed these chairs in 1957 - the upholstered back shell is a reinforced molded shell with a contoured plywood seat. The metal legs are seamless tubular steel with a polished chrome finish.
Staying true to the original upholstery, we recovered all 4 chairs in Knoll fabric - Stacks, in a slate color.
