About

We have been restoring Saarinen Executive chairs for years in every fabric one can imagine, right in our very own workroom. We’ve restored these chairs using soft nuanced Maddison Bouclé from our Fabric Collection available in a refined color range. Skilled craftsmen bring each chair back to life to live on for generations to come. All restoration is executed in line with original specifications. In addition to new fabric, the foam in each chair is replaced, the bases receive a thorough polish, and we install four new chrome ball casters. This chair features a vintage iteration stainless steel swivel base and is equipped with tilt, swivel, and manual height adjustment; all modifiable for optimal comfort.  

Additional Options

Montage's Saarinen Executive Chairs are available in any quantity and can be upholstered using our wide selection fabrics & leathers and of course COM. Montage carries both Saarinen Executive Arm & Armless Chairs. This iteration base is also available in our "24k Gold Edition" finish. Contact Montage to discuss customization, orders specific in quantity, our fabric collection, various leg finishes, or with any question you may have.

About Knoll (Manufacturer)

As a company that produced many of the most famous and iconic furniture designs of the 20th century, Knoll was a chief influence in the rise of modern design in the United States. Led by Florence Knoll, the firm would draw stellar talents such as Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Eero Saarinen into its compass. Their work would help change the face of the American home and office.


     The company was formed in 1938 by the German immigrant Hans Knoll. He first worked with his fellow ex-pat, the Danish designer Jens Risom, who created furniture with flowing lines made of wood. While Risom served in World War II, in 1943 Knoll met his future wife, Florence Schust. She had studied and worked with eminent emigré leaders of the Bauhaus, including Mies, Walter Gropius and Marcel Breuer. She won Knoll over with Bauhaus notions of industrial arts, and an aesthetic that featured flat and tubular metal frames and angular forms. When Hans died in a car crash in 1955, Florence Knoll was appointed head of the company. It was as much through her holistic approach to design—a core division of the firm was dedicated to planning office systems—as Knoll furnishings themselves that she brought about the sleek and efficient transformation of the American workplace.


     Today, classic Knoll furnishings remain staples of modern design collections and decors. A history of modern design is written in pieces such as Mies’ elegant Barcelona Chair, Saarinen’s pedestal Tulip chair, Breuer’s tubular steel Wassily chair and the grid-patterned Diamond chair by Harry Bertoia. As you can see from the items on the following pages, these designs and others have become timeless emblems of the progressive spirit and sleek sophistication of the best of Modernism.
