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 has been used for many decades by top manufacturers to upholster iconic designs of the 20th century, and for good reason.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

soft wool is remarkable, but stools did not arrive in time
Ordered in baby blue wool with beech / natural wood, the cushions are plump and a dream to sit on especially with the soft wool upholstery. 3 star rating because of how long they took as I needed them sooner for a housewarming party I was having but it worked out fine as most of the place was fully furnished by the date

very comfortable - glad to replace my old stools
Impressive, sturdy, love the softness of the fabric - the slight curves and backrest are extremely comfortable comparable to the perfectly straight frame on my old chairs - you can tell the difference, its so much better!

love these stools, just not crazy about footrest
Fantastic look and perfect height, however, not really crazy about the bar on the footrest once they arrived but i'll make do, it probably adds extra support even if the footrest is 100% my favorite - good thing its at the bottom anyway
