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.

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.

style works well
Good to have stools that don't move all around on the kitchen floor, they are secure and sturdy - couldn't find the same style as my old stools but these actually look even better with the design

my combination should be made readily available
Polar white leather with oak / natural is a beautiful combination. They are truly the best fit for my kitchen but I was waiting in anticipation for my special order for weeks longer than wanted. I recommend turning this combo into readily available as I wouldn't be surprised if more people order this
