Liberty Chair arms are unique. Aside from several different armpads to choose from, fixed or adjustable arms are available as well. Height-adjustable arms lower down to the seat cushion and out of the way while working at a desk or on a keyboard tray.
  • No armrests
  • Fixed height armrests with either a Duron (soft solid foam) or Technogel pad
  • Height-adjustable armrests featuring a 5" range of adjustment
  • Armrests can be covered in urethane, black Xanium synthetic leather, or upholstery to match the seat cushion

Our recommendation: Most people will benefit from having adjustable arms

Arm Pads

  • Duron arms match either your frame color or shell color when ordered with a polished aluminum frame
  • Technogel arm pads come standard with a black Xanium synthetic leather cover
  • Duron or Technogel arms may be covered to match your seat textile

Seat Cushion

The Liberty's thin seat cushion is designed specifically for long-term sitting comfort, whether with the double foam seat or the optional Technogel cushion that maximizes weight distribution and comfort.

Technogel Seat Cushion

    • Made of a non-degradable, non-compressible Technogel layer on top of a foam core
    • Provides for maximum pressure distribution
    • Offers unmatched long-term comfort
    • Proven to reduce back stress while sitting
    • Not available with leather or Sensuede covered seats

Our recommendation: The gel seat has a firmer "sit" that takes a few minutes to warm up and get soft. If you sit all day and have back problems, you'll likely love it. If you are up and down more, you may prefer the standard foam cushioning.

Grade 3


Sensuede was developed to be the best and most luxurious engineered suede available. The faux suede's soft touch comes from the use of breathable and wrinkle resistant recycled microfibers that are finer than a human hair but are extra-strong, resulting in a very resilient fabric. This material also was selected because of its environmentally sensitive content and manufacturing process.

Sensuede Swatches for Humanscale Liberty Drafting Chair

Leather - Grade 0


A lightly corrected, aniline dyed leather produced from European hides. It receives a special retannage that enriches the leather and tightens the grain.

Humanscale Liberty Drafting Chair Vincenza Leather

The Human Solution is a fully authorized Humanscale Dealer

Shop Smart: Shop Authorized and Protect Your Investment

The Human Solution is an authorized Humanscale reseller. All manufacturers sign a contractual agreement with their dealers that require dealers uphold a specific code of behavior that provides for quality support both before and after the sale of their products, including warranty support. Humanscale authorized dealers must meet high quality standards for customer service, product selection, and business ethics. This policy includes:

  • A brand new product guarantee (Humanscale authorized dealers are prohibited from selling or marketing used, refurbished, or renewed Humanscale products)
  • Full coverage by Humanscale's lifetime manufacturer warranty
  • On-site product service in 12 major cities and nationwide warranty support

What do you lose by purchasing a Humanscale product from a non-authorized source?

  • While some unauthorized sellers may have their own warranty, it is usually very limited in scope, often as short as 30 days. The warranty is only as good as the dealer who backs it; if they go out of business, your warranty is gone with them.
  • Humanscale assigns serial numbers to every chair they manufacturer - this record details the original purchaser and ensures the lifetime warranty is only valid for the original purchaser. You cannot purchase replacement parts, pads or fabric without the serial number. Additionally if your chair breaks, you cannot get it repaired.
  • Humanscale chairs are rated to 250 pounds and a 40 hour work week. If a refurbished chair has seen more use than this, its lifetime will be shortened.
  • When comparing dealers and pricing, read the description thoroughly. As all authorized dealers are subject to the same minimum advertised pricing, any dealer lower should be suspect.

Ergonomic Adjustments

Professor Ergo's Thoughts:

While most mesh chairs feature a single-panel mesh, the Humanscale Liberty Drafting Chair backrest is comprised of a tri-panel, non-stretch mesh. This unique, form-sensing mesh gives you a more customized fit, matching the contour of your back and lumbar region and continuing to support you comfortably throughout a full range of motion. This, coupled with a pivoting backrest and a self-adjusting recline mechanism, means the Liberty Chair gives you instant comfort and support, even at drafting stool height.
