A combination of black, white & brown hairs, each hide is a one-of-a-kind, will vary due to the unique nature and character of cowhide, and is sure to provide any mid-century classic with a distinguished beauty all its own, and a strikingly iconic look that radiates authenticity.

Almost as original
October 24, 2018
Ordered to replace the original Saarinen chairs that lasted 47 years. The new ones look as good as the originals. I like the new matte finish that became available just recently. They are an inch less wide than the originals, that however does not make any difference in comfort. The cushions are not as big or as soft as the originals which lasted all this time and are still ok. Have hopes that the new ones will last a long time. Upholstery is well done. . In the attached pictures the old chair is shown on the left.
ProsGood matte finish in white and careful finish in upholstering this product. Price difference from prices charged of the "original" Saarinen chair distributor is definitely a factor. s Chairs shipped well packed and without damage, Delivery was perfect.
ConsCushions could be slightly larger and thicker (softer). Time for the order was somewhat longer from promised 8 -10 weeks.

I thought it was kind of a quirky style but went for it anyway and i am SO HAPPY with the results! They look so unique, turned the whole dining room into this sort of retro contemporary design theme, definitely wasn't what i thought i was going for but ended up being a great choice

I really like the base of this design, it kind of looks like the bottom of a wine glass. I purchased 6 for my dining table, I was a little unsure of how they'd look together but they match nicely. Happy with my choice!
