Closer Looks: Saarinen's Model 71 Armchair

Eero Saarinen recognized how a chair’s comfort comes from the contours just as much as it does from the amount of cushioning.  He applied this concept to his iconic designs, such as his Model 71 Armchair, launched in 1950 as part of his classic Model 70 Series of Chairs.

Our Model 71 Armchair Reproduction comes in a wide variety of colors in both leather and fabrics.  Our version comes with three options of legs:  solid stainless steel, swivel base or solid wood legs.  Our newly released wood legs are made from North American Red Oak and are steam bent, hand routered into shape and cut to length, matching the precise details of the Knoll Model.

You can have a seat in our reproduction of this iconic chair, along with everything else we have to offer in any of three factory showroom locations in BellinghamChicago or Dallas!
