You can go industrial with black leather, minimalist with white leather, or carnival with lagoon or cherry leather. What's Not to Like The leather pad goes a long way towards making the Wire Chair a comfortable seat, but it still won't be a comfortable long term read 1 hour seat.

After all, it was Charles and Ray who had developed new ways to mold wood that were so successful that their discoveries were used in numerous ways by the US Navy during World War II. That same molded plywood, and then molded plastic, ended up as materials in innovative chairs produced in the 1940s. Never content to repeat themselves, in the early 1950s, the Eameses and their design staff turned to bent and welded wire. Inspired by trays, dress forms, and baskets, the designers developed a variety of pieces, including Eames wire chairs. Eames Bikini Wire Chair in Sage Open Line Leather by Herman Miller
