The Humanscale Freedom Drafting Chair brings executive level comfort and designer styling to a taller chair. No thought or effort is needed to recline or change positions and movement is a key goal when seeking a healthier work environment. Highly contoured cushions provide excellent back, lumbar and lateral support with a feel reminiscent of the car seats in a luxury sports car. Choose from a wide selection of fabrics; high quality, breathable and long lasting synthetic leathers; or from two grades of genuine, aniline-dyed high grade leathers.

Humanscale Freedom Chair Arms
Choose from no arms, height adjustable arms, or height adjustable arms with a pivoting armpad, and from two different types of armpads, as well as whether or not you want the armpads upholstered to match your chair.
- No arms - (we recommend getting this chair with arms as the arms adjust low enough to be out of the way when not needed)
- Standard arms - height adjustable with a 6" adjustment range
- Advanced arms - height adjustable and have 1.25" longer armpads; armpads pivot inward
Buy Smart: The advanced arms pivot inward which allows the arms to better support the forearms and elbows, and to bring the armpads closer for thinner bodies. Those who type all day and/or have thin upper bodies will prefer the advanced arms.
- Duron armpads - are crafted of soft polyurethane for durability, and are black
- Gel armpads - are softer and reduce pressure on the forearms and elbows, and are covered in Xanium synthetic leather so they wipe clean
- Upholstered armpads are available for either armpad.
Buy Smart: Fabric arms get dirty and wear out before the seat cushions. We recommend skipping the upholstered armpads except on leather chairs or where the chair will see light use.
Choose the cylinder that meets your adjustment needs. Taller cylinders turn your Liberty Chair into a stool or drafting chair.
- Tall [T] - 17" to 22.25" from the floor
- High w/18" foot ring [F] - 20.5" to 28.5" from the floor
Choose from either an 18" or 21" diameter foot ring.
