Metal Office Chair

When it comes to vintage office chairs, let’s be honest, it’s hard to know who’s really got your back. And maybe it’s just us, but when you consider that a vintage office chair is going to spend up to eight hours a day hugging your backside, you want it to be a chair you trust. Likewise, a vintage office chair that’s fine for the office—we’re looking at you style-less ergonomic chair with the heart of gold!—might not cut it in your carefully edited abode. What’s a working girl to do?

While Steelcase has continued to innovate the office chair into the new millennium, it’s their original 430 Chair, introduced in 1974, that still captivates us most. Identifiable by the tagline “The chair that loves people,” the 430 was a precursor to the ergonomic chairs that dominate the market today. While the chair’s focus was comfort contouring, we can’t get over the bold colored upholstery they sport. Indeed, this chair is a literal manifestation of how 4:30 on a Friday feels.

Following Eero Saarinen, it was Max Pearson’s secretarial chair that assumed the role of the Planning Unit’s standard task chair, and in 1966 Pearson introduced his own version of the executive chair. Featuring a sculpted, womb-like shape, inset cushions, and a stainless swivel base, the chair can frequently be found upholstered in popsicle-right colors. Consider this one a plush, futuristic take on the boss’s chair.

If you already associated Herman Miller with office furniture because of their omnipresent molded fiberglass Eames chair, consider us impressed. While the standard, molded Eames chairs are part of the brand’s residential lines, they do, of course, work perfectly when paired up with a plank-style desk. If the standard Eames chair isn’t your style; however, don’t fret—no one does the vintage office chair quite like Herman Miller.

Date of purchase: May 16, 2016. Soon after the beginning of using this chair. There started a right to left sideways tilt of the seat. As time passed this tilt became a sideway rocking motion. The longer it was used the more noticeable the side rocking. Today something snapped and I almost fell sideways out of the chair. This chair is now sitting out on the curb waiting to be picked up & hauled away. P.S. To be fair I must say that I called Homegear, the seller (not WM) soon after the problem showed up about the problem. They gave me a discount of 25.00 off the purchase price. So it wasn't a total loss.

While the company is, of course, recognizable for its additions to residential spaces (hello, Tulip Table!), Florence Knoll created Knoll’s Planning Unit, a committee that specialized in office space planning and yes, vintage office chairs. An acronym-heavy roster of clients included IBM, CBS, and GM. Likewise, Knoll employed a number of makers to design office furniture. Below are the Knoll designers who did it best.

We love any company that promotes a workday full of Margaritaville color. Founded in 1912, Steelcase began experimenting with color early on, introducing office sets in colors like flame, cordovan (that’s a burgundy rose), and bamboo in the 1950s. Meanwhile, installations in famed office buildings like Frank Lloyd Wright’s S.C. Johnson Wax Building in Wisconsin and Chicago’s Sears Tower bolstered their office cred.

I was surprised at this chair when I saw it, actually made well, and went together perfectly. The only thing I did not like were how low and short length the arm rest were, and the width of the arm rest is slender which is uncomfortable. I did measure them but didn't think the “style” would not work for me. I still use the chair everyday despite the only flaw in design. This is purly my opinion, others might think it works well for them.

A curved, shell-like seat makes you the pearl in the oyster that is Charles Pollock’s Executive Chair. A molded seat offers up supreme comfort, while an upholstered lining provides a pop of color on the chair front. An aluminum rim and tufting on the upholstery are extra glamorous rifts that finish the look.

In the 1950s, following the success of their molded chairs, Ray and Charles Eames were challenged to design outdoor seating. The result was the Aluminum Group series. While the chair from that series, the Aluminum Group Chair, features a long, languid caterpillar profile (complete with segmented upholstery), the Soft Pad Lounger comes off like its more-buttoned, polished-up cousin. With a slightly straighter sit and wider segments that appear to have been pumped full of air, these chairs absolutely exude comfort. And when it comes to the grind, who doesn’t want that?

Introduced in 1950, the Saarinen Executive Armchair is notable for its swooping, bat-like shape and crescent back cut-out. Originally docked on stationary, antenna-like legs, this vintage office chair can now also be found with a swivel base. Regardless of which version you fall for, its pod-like shape cradles the body, ensuring that feeling overworked is a thing of the past.

A.Yes you can. The arms are the last things to put on, but if you want to use it without the arms, the chair definitely holds up.

The chair is well built and comfy, however it is a good leg workout because you have to keep pushing yourself into it. It tips forward terribly and I feel as if I am leaning forward and no way to tilt back. The seat length is very short and if you have longer legs, it doesn't work. I don't feel like I have long legs (I'm only 5'6″), but I have about 7 inches of the top of my leg hanging over the edge of the seat. I would no recommend unless you are shorter and in your seated position your legs rest on a majority of the seat.
