East River ChairWant to feel like a delegate in the UN? Look no further, this product born from Hella Jongerius and Vitra collaboration on the design of a chair for the North Delegates Lounge at the UN headquarters in New York is for you. The East River Chair, with its distinctive form, features a seat shell covered entirely with leather. Hella Jongerius developed four variations, each of which combines leathers in two different colours on the inner and outer face, using contrasting cross stitching for a decorative effect.

Abrazo leather chairCuero creates leather, lamb skin, cow hide and canvas chairs all with the craftsmanship of Scandinavian furniture using Argentinean aesthetic for a true global design. But what’s really exciting are the available styles of their butterfly chair. Abrazo is a very modern expression of the traditional sling back chair. It replaces the double-winged aesthetic of the dipping backrest with a one that tapers ever upward to create a sleek and sexy profile. Even the matching footrest has a tapered design.

Jan Armgardt leather chairRelaxation can be so simple and comfort is integrated into every detail of this innovative armchair and its mobile headrest that Jan Armgardt designed so well. A different, clearly noticeable "little extra" in movement, simple elegance, and graceful in its shape, this armchair goes with many sofas. It features innovative construction of the metal pipe frame, leather-covered armrests, and head piece that is adjustable by a ratchet mechanism that allows different positions. This is beyond any doubt one the prettiest chairs we've ever seen.

Chester Moon leather chairThis exceptional tufted leather sofa by Baxter has a dreamy quality about it that transforms the traditional into something entirely unexpected. The Chester Moon is the finest example of a chair that you instantly want to have. The tufted detail really accentuated the cushy quality, complemented by the rounded edges and down-to-the-floor upholstery. There is no room where this chair won't fit nicely, it will embellish any space and match any era design so easily and gracefully.
