Solid Wood / Finish
Our durable, premium quality solid wood is harvested from beautiful hardwood trees like the American White Oak, Walnut, Maple, etc. Each piece boasts the beauty of the tree's natural grain. Our solid wood has a long lifespan and can be refinished or repaired over time to enjoy for many years to come.

ModTex Performance Leatherette
Sometimes, leather just isn't enough. Enjoy the look and feel of a thick, exotic full aniline genuine leather but with the durability, strength, fade-resistance and function required in a heavy-use commercial space. This worry-free leather alternative is easy to clean and simple to maintain. ModTex is waterproof stain-resistant and fire-resistant, making this an equally ideal solution for public seating spaces and for the home as it will stand up against the normal wear-and-tear often caused by children and pets.

Gabriel of Denmark
Gabriel of Denmark has been used for many decades by top manufacturers to upholster iconic designs of the 20th century, and for good reason. This durable, woven fabric is soft, yet offers great strength and stability, and is manufactured by Gabriel, one of Denmark's most reputable upholstery manufacturers. Featuring a hand-picked variety of Gabriel fabric mainstays from the Medley, Sodley and Fighter collections, Inmod offers choices featuring bright & bold pop tones and sleek, sophisticated grays and browns, so you can wrap your classic replica in authenticity. Rich in texture, our selection of Gabriel fabrics feature two to three tones, providing depth and a rich, plush appearance. It also has excellent resistance to fading and will hold its shape, preserving your classic for many years to come.

Durability & stability meets vintage appeal in this plush woven synthetic blend (polyester & acrylic). Each of our Vintage Tweed fabrics are richly textured, subtly combining two to three varying colors, which together compose deep earth tones ideal for any piece and any space. Enjoy an iconic mid-century look that is soft to the touch, that won't fade, and that you'll cherish for years to come. Our Vintage Tweed collection is ideal for residential and commercial use.

New Zealand Wool Tweed
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.

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
Offering the best of both worlds, this lush blend (made by Para S.P.A. of Italy) offers an authentic recipe of 63% Italian cotton, and 37% Belgian linen, and is used globally by some of the most renowned designers of premium modern furnishings for both home and contract markets. 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 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.

more plain than i imagined
Design was a little too plain for my taste once they arrived, I wasn't sure how they would pair with my dining table, fortunately the finishes match exactly and I think changing up the overhead lighting might do the trick

relaxed dining
The slight recline on the backrest sets this a part from any other dining chairs i've ever owned, love the level of comfort, it's been nice to relax a bit and not be in such a rigid chair when at the dinner table

both delicate and bold
Charming in canary yellow! Adore the sharp angles on the armrests, it's bold and edgy while still maintaining a delicate and feminine look

exceptional support
Angled seat and slight recline is exceptional on my back, supportive but also comfortable, I was having some difficulty sitting for long periods of time while eating meals because of the discomfort experienced, I've had these for about a week now and I've been able to sit down with the family for the entirety of our dinners together

request swatches for wood finish match
Finish didn't match the other furniture, little disappointed and frustrated but it wasn't a total loss - the fabric matches the curtains perfectly, i recommend requesting swatches for the wood

These are great chairs, I highly recommend
I underestimated how changing only one element of a room can transform it! I thought my dining room needed a complete makeover, it turns out all it needed were these chairs, I'm thrilled! Thank you so much!

color choice confusion
Love that there were a ton of fabric and color options but wish I would have asked for swatches before ordering because the color was a little off - aside from this the chairs are attractive and seem to be made well

WOW! I am completely satisfied with my new dining chairs. They are well-crafted, comfortable and my favorite part is the way the armrests flow into the back legs. The angular lines and tapered legs are also absolutely gorgeous. Thank you so much!

Stylish and Comfortable
We really like the new chairs. It was time to give the dining room a fresh look. They are light oak with a brown tweed fabric. So far, the fabric is wearing very well. We have a cat that likes them too... and the fabric doesn't pull easily. A great mid-century look for a reasonable price.
ProsI really like all the options that are available to customize the look.
ConsOne chair arrived damaged and had to be returned.
