Making the Icon One of the most influential Mid Century Modern icons of the 20th century. But not all furniture is made the same way. Our dedicated upholsterers keep the lines tailored, the upholstery taunt and the curves even. Florence’s squeak free frame is solid wood, glued & screwed. Buttons are hand sewn. Cushions are individually fitted to the frame and generously filled. Florence is delivered with a limited lifetime warranty.
Art isn’t the only way to make a statement in your living space. Ample cubic cushions featuring compressed buttons in a purposeful layout exude style and comfort. Kardiel’s refreshed twist on the mid century modern icon keeps comfort and quality alive for todays generation of Modernism enthusiasts.
About Full Grain Aniline Leather Famous for its soft buttery feel, a full-grain leather hide is the top layer that has been carefully dyed to preserve the natural variations in color tone. Full-grain leather has grain & markings that are as unique as individual fingerprints. Without topical colors and sealers the leather touches, expands, contracts and breathes naturally. Experience hours of seating goodness with all the genuine color & grain variation, a signature of Full Grain. It gets better. Through age and use, the leather will develop a warm surface sheen known as “patina”. It’s the patina that gives furniture its comforting, vintage look.

100% Genuine Top Grain Premium Aniline Leather Making up only 5% of the worlds leather supply Top Grain Aniline is the best quality, softest leather we offer. This premium leather is Aniline vat dyed with the color penetrating through to the back of the hide. Top Grain refers to the actual surface of the hide presents a natural leather appearance and touch you would expect.
This series is upholstered in premium Top Grain Aniline European leather. This is a significant upgrade in leather options. Top Grain is the actual surface of the cowhide. While no one knows the actual number, a small percentage of furniture sold today is upholstered in Premium Top Grain Aniline leather. Some claim as low as 5%. Aniline dying describes one of the two processes in which color is applied to the leather with the dye penetrating the leather and extending beyond the surface, into the leather itself. For modern furniture requiring a clean aesthetic, Top Grain Aniline Leather is both “liquid vat” (deep penetrating) and surface dyed to achieve the main color selection and to conceal uneven tones and blemishes in the hide. Top grain aniline is the softest leather and naturally breaths well. Because Top Grain refers to the actual surface of the animal hide it presents a natural leather appearance you would expect. While it is true that raw Top Grain Aniline absorbs spills easier, furniture grade Top Grain leather features a stain resistant treatment making it exceptional for everyday lower maintenance use. Although rare, nothing wears, looks or feels better than premium Aniline Top Grain leather. Over time it patinas and becomes more comfortable versus wearing out.
“Split Grain” is the most common leather used on furniture. This reproduction has been upgraded to Top Aniline leather and does not use Split Grain leather. Nonetheless, this paragraph will help explain the difference in quality and price between the leather types. Split Grain is the underside of the hide that has been separated from the surface or “top” of the hide. While defined as actual leather, Split Grain leather does not have the natural surface grain of the top of the cowhide. A topical layer of insoluble pigment is applied to the surface of split grain leather, which is then stamped or “grain embossed” to imitate the surface appearance of actual leather. This topical layer contains the color that the leather will be.
