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.

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.

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 1.mm-1.3mm 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 colors, 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.

nice choice for chairs!
I ordered two for my living room and they are spectacular! The quality and comfort is excellent, not to mention they look elegant in front of my fireplace, I was trying to steer away from anything too traditional looking when redecorating and these are a nice choice between traditional and contemporary

Thrilled with my purchase and THANK YOU!

Poor quality and CHEAP feeling
First of all, I ordered my chair back in September 2019. It just arrived today via Fed Ex (1/4/19)!!! To their credit, InMod did, in fact, give me $100.00 discount for the delayed shipping time.

This product and the accompanying ottoman (and perhaps many or all of their products) are made in CHINA. The HUMUNGOUS box arrived via FedEx. On a Pallet. I had to unbox the chair and ottoman myself which took about 45 minutes. It was stapled to the pallet. Now I have to dispose of the huge box and pallet myself. They do not bring it inside for you.

Next, the workmanship (and I use the term loosely) is VERY POOR. The seams are done really poorly. The wood pieces on the arm resets are simply glued on. The color of the fabric is somewhat lighter than the sample I received last August.

It is not a good replica AT ALL. Very disappointed with this purchase and I wish I had canceled it when I was given the opportunity back in November.

It is not well padded and it off-gasses terribly...God knows what chemicals are in the fabric and or what type of glue they use.


I will update my review after about 3 months of use. Did I say Poor Quality?? Really. Poor quality.
ProsOne can sit on it, I suppose. To be determined
ConsHeavy, Poor delivery service, slow delivery, poor upholstery job, bad off-gassing of product.

very inviting design
Design really takes classic lounge chairs to the next level - kind of enjoy it's caricature like appearance with the oversized backrest and protruding armrests. Like it's beckoning for me to come and sit down in it!
