The SOHO Premier series management chair is the ultimate mid century modern drafting height chair. All SOHO Premier series chairs feature a full aluminum frame and base, chrome hood casters, a generous Italian leather seating area, and the beauty of an iconic design. They’ll never bend like cheaper versions, and have seating surfaces that last for years. Once you own one, you'll see why thousands of businesses, hotels, and interior designers consistently rely on the SOHO series from Laura.

Important Note: Among our original chairs, tables, and file cabinets, Laura Davidson also produces certain chairs that are inspired by pieces from last century — first imagined by greats such as Eames, Starck, Le Corbusier, and Wegner. By no means are we claiming that our products are authentic pieces from those time periods or that they are originals from their descendants or corporations.

Top-Grain Italian Leather with Heat-Embossed Ribbing

Our soft Italian leather provides a buttery smooth seating surface while providing exceptional durability and comfort. Furthermore, while inferior chairs use stitched ribbing that provides no airflow for your body, the SOHO makes for a more cool and comfortable experience by being one of the few chairs with grooved, heat-embossed ribbing from top to bottom.

Aluminum Frame with Full Loop Arms

The SOHO Premier frame is made from cast aluminum with a beautiful chrome-plated finish. The matching aluminum arms are full loops (not L-shaped) and can be detached to suit a variety of needs.

Class 4 Gas Lift for Lifetime Performance

We only use BIFMA-rated Class 4 lifts that are the most durable in the industry, ensuring a lifetime of trouble-free raising and lowering.

Durable Aluminum Base with Steel Foot Ring

The aluminum base not only looks great, but it’s also the strongest base on the market — supporting over 400 lbs. The base, foot ring, and stationary glides also provide a secure and reliable foundation for drafting height requirements.
