The Saarinen Style Model 71 Executive Arm Chair was designed and introduced in 1950 by Eero Saarinen as the third chair of his iconic Model 70 Series of chairs. (The other two chairs of this series are the Model 70 Womb Chair and the Model 72 Side Chair.) The Model 71 Executive Arm Chair was created specifically for executive offices of the General Motors Technical School that Saarinen was also designing as lead architect.

Our M71 Saarinen Style Executive Arm Chair is inspired by this Saarinen Model 71 Arm Chair. Our internal shell is made of a molded polymer fiberglass. Next a molded foam is placed over the shell, then upholstered and the legs are attached. Upholstery options include both our classic Italian leathers and our exclusive 100% polyester boucle fabric with stain guard. The Leg options we offer are: solid stainless steel or wood. The stainless steel legs are solid stainless steel bar stock with adjustable foot glides. Our wood legs are made of North American Red Oak, steam bent into shape and then finished in one of four colors, suitable for both commercial and residential applications.Features:

Modern Classics Furniture offers two levels of Leather: Standard and Premium Leather. Each of the these groupings feature:

  • Top-grain leather from Grade A hides
  • Semi aniline-dyed (standard) and 100% aniline-dyed (premium)
  • Made in Italy and imported to our factory
  • No split hides or bonded leather

Below are the swatches of the leather colors we offer for all furniture which offer leather. Our standard leathers (denoted with the prefix L1) are top-grain, semi-aniline-dyed, corrected with a slight embossing. Our Premium leathers (denoted with the prefix L2) are top-grain, 100% aniline-dyed and have a soft feel to them and much of the hides natural grain patterns are retained. We do not use split hides leather. Leather thickness is generally 1.0 - 1.2 mm depending on application of seating component for stretching and tailoring the upholstery design and condition. Both the Standard and Premium Leathers are considered equally durable and are ideal for home or commercial use.
