The Comeback of Woven Leather Chairs
The year was 1956; colors, flowers, and fabric reigned supreme in the home. Contemporary chic was a distant notion, especially in the USA, where pastel color furniture was the height of interior design. That was, of course, until wood met leather.
A New Interior Design Concept
Mel Smilow, an American furniture designer and artist, made the ingenious decision to introduce these two classics in their own rights. The result was a steady revolution, reviving leather within décor trends by degrees, resulting in the landscape of today in which an all-leather room is far from a rarity and a regular in trends.
With an eye attuned to beauty, a keen interest in innovation, and the will to make something better – the woven leather chair was born. Its aesthetic appeal won hearts from the off. Rustic wood looked almost daring and entirely compelling when mixed with the subtle edginess of leather. Together, these traditional mediums formed an unbeatable duo.
Durable, comfortable and above all – beautiful
What’s more, Smilow applied the classic wicker technique to make the unique chair all the more intriguing. Upholstery, until then, had been a rather timid affair. But, with the dawn of woven leather, limits were pushed and trends set.
Leather is water and stain-resistant practicality wrapped up in a stunning package, ideal for the dining table. Better still, it’s one of the only materials that get better with age, meaning when you buy a woven leather chair, you buy a piece for life.
