Charles & Ray Eames Time Life Lobby Chair

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Designed in 1960 for the reception areas of the Time-Life building in New York by Charles & Ray Eames. The Time Life Lobby chair combines the characteristics of some of the other iconic designs they developed around the same period. The wide seat, lounge height and relaxed pitch makes this chair very comfortable. The Lobby chair though originally conceived for a reception area, was also sold for residential use. Though production was eventually halted on this particular model a smaller desk-height version of the design with tilt function and adjustable height was later developed and is still in production today.
