Featuring a high backrest and a low seat, the Soft Pad Chair EA 222 by Charles and Ray Eames offers ultimate comfort – due in no small part to the chair's tilt mechanism, which can be adjusted to the weight of the individual user. The matching stool EA 223 provides a comfortable footrest. Together, EA 222 and EA 223 form the perfect spot for long cosy evenings with a good book.
