The secret is in the leather

What’s the secret for a leather chair to be the best chair? Design is for sure important, but definitely leather has a great role. When you think about a leather chair, like the Barcelona Chair, several pleasant sensations come to our mind: The soft, smooth touch of leather, its polished surface, and its distinctive smell….But what happens if that chair has no real leather?

In this case the charm of leather vanishes. Bond leather, or PU leather (some of the alternatives in faux leather) have little of the virtues of leather. While overall appearance may be pretty alike, its feeling is quite different. Faux leather is hot, have plastic smell and its touch is very simple.

Manhattan Home Design uses only full grain premium leather, from Italy, in the Barcelona Chair. Full grain leather is the best leather available and its obtained by just removing only the hair of the cowhide leather, and leaving only the skin.     This means that all the elements that make “real” leather, are present (wrinkles, color differences, texture). This is guaranteed thanks to the dye process call Aniline.

Trust in Manhattan Home Design, the experts in high quality replicas of Mid Century Modern Style furniture, to get the best rendition you will have of the Barcelona Chair, that wonderful design object, just like the rest of the Barcelona Collection.
