Taking durability and thickness to the next level, this Italian-made leather also uses a top-grain, Brazilian hide.

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.

Saarinen Side Chair with Wood Legs

The Saarinen Side Chair is inspired by the work of Eero Saarinen, and is a high quality reproduction of the original created in 1957. This chair was part of Saarinen's executive seating collection, which transformed executive seating with its fluid, sculptural form. The Saarinen Side Chair makes as much of an impression on the office today, and enables you to own your own version of a widely admired modern classic.

Saarinen recognized the importance of comfort, a principle that was at the center of this collection. 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 Side Chair is just one of his designs that remains popular today, proof of the staying power of his innovative work.

Worth the wait.
The page for these chairs says that you'll wait 8 to 10 weeks. I waited 13. That being said they are beautiful and well worth the wait. I would order again and recommend to anyone. When I did contact customer service they were always helpful and gave me good information.

Happy to have so many colors to pick from, I ordered several of the same chair in two different colors for two different rooms in my home to keep the style the same so it would go with the design! They look perfect!
