More about the Leathers -
Essential Leather - A light sanded leather with a fine grain print which gives a smooth appearance to the upholstery. It is a pigmented leather which has been treated with a heavy surface finish - this makes the leather extremely durable. Essential is also very user-friendly as it is stain resistant. The leather has a high degree of light-fastness.
Grace Leather - An exquisite, luxurious aniline leather. The leather has a natural nude surface, with a light wax treatment, where all natural markings are visible. This emphasizes the unique character of the leather and adds a rustic charm to the furniture. Grace and other aniline leathers are more susceptible to dirt and grime, compared with pigmented leather. The leather will change with time through use and exposure to light and quickly gains a beautiful patina.
Natural Leather - Natural (aniline) is fully grain vegetable tanned leather made from hides of the highest quality. The leather is an elegant and beautiful leather with a natural nude surface where all natural markings are visible. It quickly gains a beautiful patina and darkens over time.
The legendary Arne Jacobsen trained as an architect in Copenhagen. His most famous buildings include Arhus Town Hall in Denmark, the SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen and St Catherine's College in Oxford England. His experiments into plywood resulted in the Ant chair in 1952.
The work on the SAS Royal Hotel resulted in some of his most outstanding designs, including the Egg and Swan chairs, a stainless steel cutlery set now made by silver manufacturer Georg Jensen and a series of lamps, manufactured by &Tradition and Louis Poulsen. A perfectionist and a master of detail, Jacobsen worked right up to his death in 1971. In central London, his Royal Danish Embassy on Sloane Street was completed only in 1977. He was one of Denmark's most influential 20th-century architects & designers.
