Eero Saarinen the designer of the Executive Chair was considered by some to be a purist when I came to architecture and interior designs. In 1957 when he designed the Executive Chair it was recognize for the importance of user comfort. Eero was the first to construct a chair shell from fiberglass, a great material that flexes in response to body weight.

When shopping for your Saarinen Executive Style Chair Reproduction, be sure to keep the following qualities in mind:
: Many Saarinen Executive Style Chair reproductions cut on costs by using a poor quality leather such as "Bonded Leather", or will use "Leather Match", in which the sides and back of the cushions use cheap or synthetic leather. On our products, all sides of the cushion are fully upholstered in your leather grade of choice!
: Competitors may cut on costs by using a cheap metal or aluminum for the frame. A cheap frame will not retain its shape over time, and may even rust or oxidize, which will damage the chair's upholstery. The Saarinen Executive Style Chair that we offer uses only stainless steel for optimum strength, reliability and a perfect shine that will not be compromised with age.
: Reproductions should try to mimic the original Saarinen Executive Style Chair's dimensions as much as possible. Chairs that are more narrow or shallow in design are usually done to save on material costs. Different dimensions could also mean alterations to the seat angle, which can decrease comfort.TYPES OF LEATHER:100% Full Grain Italian Leather:
Italian leather is often considered to be the best kind of leather in the world. True Italian leather is a type of full-grain that has been hand-selected and hand-crafted. It is a superior quality hide greatly coveted by top furniture manufacturers. Because most Italian leather is of such high quality, it can stay in beautiful condition much longer than other types of leather.100% Full Grain European Aniline Leather:
The most attractive and natural leathers which are prized for their soft natural feel. These are leathers which have been aniline dyed in a vat process with no color coating added to the surface. These transparent dyes leave the actual surface grain and such natural markings as wrinkles, bites and scars visible. Because they don't have a top coating the leather breathes more easily and is cooler to sit on. They are the most expensive leathers to produce because only the very best selection of hides can be used to produce full aniline leathers.
