This New Zealand Wool blend has been a choice upholstery solution for designers & manufacturers of iconic original mid-century classics for many decades. This stylish wool blend offers a classic tweed vibe to give your piece a distinctly mid-century look and feel. It is gorgeous, super-soft to the touch and is textured with a subtle two-toned checkered pattern. It regulates temperature well, while still being cozy. Using a combination of premium New Zealand wool (the finest in the world) woven with just the right amount of viscose, this collection is waterproof, anti-electrostatic and stain & flame resistant, making it equally perfect for both residential and commercial use.

Danish Wool
Named after it's Scandinavian aesthetic, this tightly-woven blend combines the world's finest wool (from New Zealand) with luscious texture and commercial grade durability, and is available in a carefully selected spectrum of muted tones and pop colors. It's no wonder that this fabric has been a choice fabric option for the designers of original mid-century classics for over 50 years. With a wool content of 85%, our Danish Wool blend offers a softness to guarantee your comfort, and a nylon content of 15% provides performance-grade enhancements.

Euro Cotton / Linen Blend

Soft to the touch, our Euro Cotton / Linen Blend is smooth in texture and light-weight. It retains a plush look and resists piling. It is also flame & stain resistant, waterproof and anti-electrostatic. Curated tones for the mid-century connoisseur, this collection offers a harmonious balance of both bold and understated earth and pop colors.

Italian Cotton
100% Italian cotton has never felt this luxurious. Made by Para S.P.A. of Italy, our Italian Cotton Collection offers softness and commercial-grade durability. Understated tones of blues, grays, cream & brown, enhanced by a stunning woven texture, creates sleek modern looks, while preserving a mid-century aesthetic. This is the ideal cotton fabric solution for use in residential or commercial spaces, due to its resistance to fire & stains. It is also anti-electrostatic and waterproof.

Migliore Top-Grain Leather
This soft Brazilian leather is both durable and lightweight. Migliore is .9mm-1.1mm thick, and the semi-aniline dyeing process preserves the leather's qualities and protects it from wear and staining. It is smooth to the touch and is elegant in appearance. Choose from sleek natural light, medium and dark tones or go bold with our sexy Lipstick Red.

Premio Semi-Aniline Leather
Taking durability and thickness to the next level, this Italian-made leather also uses a top-grain, Brazilian hide. At thick, our Premio collection offers a heavier alternative to Migliore -- one that will withstand greater demands in everyday use. The semi-aniline dyeing process will preserve the natural beauty of this leather for years to come. Premio offers a sleek black, a bright white and two grays to fit any space.

Superiore Leather
As its name would imply, Superiore reigns supreme in terms of look, feel and durability. Superiore is a luxury Italian-made leather, uses Italian hides, and is the thicker, full-aniline "next-step-up" to our Premio collection. It is the softest of our leather offerings, yet it's also the thickest, heaviest and most durable (at 1.3mm-1.5mm thick). Dyed throughout the full thickness of the hide, in an array of browns (or a rich Obsidian Black), Superiore is an ultra-high quality leather that will stand the test of time, and hold up well against fading and wear from everyday use.

leather all the way
Love anything in leather, it's already comfortable but I can't wait to break it in more after some use, it was an excellent find

silky smooth and sculptural
Besides the sculptural form of the wooden frame, the leather upholstery is silky smooth and the cushioning is thicker than I expected - a dream to lounge on!

height wasn't great for me
A little lower to the ground than I thought which made it a little difficult for me to get in and out of - I have to admit the comfort level is excellent but for someone my age it was a bit of a challenge

glad i gave something new a chance!
We never know what we might find when we explore outside our box a little bit!! This is my first time shopping for furniture online and I came across this chair, I thought it might look nice in my living room but I was a little apprehensive, I'm glad I went for it because it was what my home needed to give it that extra feature bringing the whole design together

grateful grandaughter!
Sophisticated and elegant and slightly ornate while also making a suitable gift from my grandfather who likes a very traditional and semi old fashioned environment especially when it comes to the furnishings and design of his home - if he's happy with it than so am I!

absolutely wanted this specific chair, upholstery doesn't match the way i thought it might
Maybe should have went for another upholstery color - doesn't entirely match the way i thought it would, ask for color swatches if you are unsure at least that's what customer service suggested which i would have to agree with, they were very helpful on the phone and this specific chair was truly what i wanted but as a recommendation to other buyers if you aren't sure about the right color for you - be sure to ask for specific swatches

Great product
The chair looks great and seems to be very well made. It took almost 1.5 months longer than expected to be delivered. But Inmod gave me a slight discount because of the extended time.
ProsGreat style.
ConsLonger than expected shipping.

from Seattle, WA asked:
October 4, 2016
Do you also sell the matching ottoman? Is the wood selection the type of wood and then the stain color? Where are the chairs made?
1 Answer
At this time, we do not offer the ottoman for this chair. The wood selection is the type of wood and the stain. For instance American Walnut / Natural is real American Walnut wood with a clear coat to show the natural color of the wood.
