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.

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 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 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.

Saarinen Arm Chair

With a familiar look and timeless style, the Saarinen Arm Chair makes an excellent addition to any home or office. This brilliant arm chair is a high quality reproduction of the original created by Eero Saarinen in 1957. This chair was part of Saarinen executive seating collection, which transformed executive seating with its fluid, sculptural form.

Saarinen is regarded as one of the 20th century's most influential designers, with many of his works remaining popular today. Saarinen recognized the importance of comfort, a principle that was integral to this chair's design. He was the first to construct a chair shell from fiberglass, a material that is not only visually appealing but flexes in response to body weight making it extremely comfortable.

The Saarinen Arm Chair is available with your choice of leather or fabric upholstery. It is perfectly complemented by a polished stainless steel base. This brilliant arm chair adds a distinct and recognizable addition to any home or office, as well as an extremely comfortable seat in which you can spend hours.

excellent office chairs, comfortable yet professional
Amazing how roomy the seat cushions are, lots of space to wiggly around and to get comfortable against the backrest while still seated in a supportive upright position, these were a good choice for our office space

good buying experience
This was a custom order so it took a little while to arrive but customer service provided excellent updates and support. The chair itself is perfect and exactly what I wanted, the entire experience went as smooth as possible and i'd shop here again

Hi are any of the fabrics offered close to a velvet type of feel? Also is there any way to expedite an order? I am looking to purchase 2 of these chairs in fabric and hoping to get them for first week of october when my office opens. Last questions, if my architect orders do we qualify for a trade discount? Thanks very much, Jennifer
1 Answer
At this time we do not offer any upholstery options with a velvet feel to them. We are able to make these chairs with COM (customer's own material), with a lead time of about 12-14 weeks. If you wish to see swatches in the mail, you may email your request to [email protected] Unfortunately, we are unable to expedite the 8-10 week lead time for these chairs, as they are custom made overseas, and travel via ocean transit. We are certainly able to offer a trade discount on these chairs. Your architect may email us at [email protected] with a resale certificate or tax id, along with the items and quantities you may be interested in, and we will then provide a quote with trade pricing.
