Kimball Theo | One Chair, A Thousand Settings


One of the multiple product introductions made by Kimball in 2017, the Theo™ seating line has already made an impact on the furniture industry. This handsome lounge chair was inspired by iconic, mid-century designs, and offers rich veneers, highly polished aluminum and clean lines. A product that is equally at home in lounge settings as it is in a secondary workspace or casual meeting area, you’ll find it difficult to pick just one setting for this elegant piece.

Line Offerings

Scaled to work in multiple environments, Theo’s “Active Lounge” offers several back, base, seat and finish options to fit both relaxed and fast-paced work environments. All lounge and guest chairs come equipped with 360-degree swivel for full functionality and are available with glides or casters for ease of mobility. Additional features include swivel tilt, height adjustment control and optional armcaps for personalized comfort. A matching ottoman with glides or casters is also available.

The Theo seating line is available for order now. Coinciding tables will be available in fall. For a complete product listing, view the Kimball Theo brochure.


Earlier this year, the Theo lounge chair was bestowed the #MetropolisLikes Award  during NYCxDESIGN. #MetropolisLikes is Metropolis Magazine’s biannual award program that is held in New York City during NYCxDESIGN. Metropolis editors selected their favorite products for 2017 from New York City’s design festival, all of which fell into five categories; furniture, materials, kitchen & bath, lighting and accessories. Aesthetically pleasing and incredibly versatile, it comes as no surprise that Theo is being recognized by an important industry platform like NYCxDESIGN.

Work Design Magazine

Following its #MetropolisLikes achievement, Kimball’s Theo seating line was featured by Work Design Magazine. The article discusses how Theo’s craftsmanship and versatility give it the ability to meet almost any seating requirement. With a sumptuous veneer frame and highly polished aluminum base, the design is nod to the mid-century classics while simultaneously exuding a contemporary air.


Heather Nemoir, Partner and General Manager of Corporate Design Interiors, was asked to give her thoughts on the product line for the article.

“Theo embraces whatever setting it is placed; comfortable at work or rest, alone or within a group, upright and fully-engaged or tilted with the paired ottoman for deep-thinking. Theo’s handsome lines are welcoming, it’s clean and sturdy aluminum base is polished but not pushy, and its rich veneer wraps the chair seemingly delivering an invitation to,  ‘please sit, make yourself at home.’”
