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.

refined and beautiful
I just received the chair I ordered and I am delighted. It excels in all the details; the joinery in the three piece backrest carefully emulates the original, as does the smooth joining of the legs to the arm rests. The shaping of the armrests has been achieved with a precision that is almost delicate, and is a close match with the original. It is an exceptional piece of furniture at a very reasonable price. You obviously take care when you ship your pieces - all the corners and edges of the shipping carton were reinforced, ensuring that the chair arrived in perfect condition. Your attention to detail pays off.

A great arm chair, and great service
I did an extensive web search for an arm chair of this style, and finally decided this one was the nicest looking at a fair price. I ordered two, which when delivered promptly, but one was damaged in transit. Ultimately, the damaged chair was replaced, and we just love the chairs. The customer service was terrific, with them working to replace the damaged chair asap. We've received numerous comments praising the comfort and appearance of these chairs. I would not hesitate to buy from inmod again. They were great!
ProsBeautiful chair. Well made. Comfortable. Great customer service.

1 Answer
The finish of the Kennedy Arm chairs and Elbow Style chairs will be the same, as long as you order them at the same time, so that the wood used is from the same batch. We do not have any photographs of the chairs with a dining room table at this time.
