Here are seven of the latest leather armchairs

March 2019

Carl Hansen & Son
A decade after the first Borge Morgensen’s Huntsman Chair was first presented at the Copenhagen Cabinetmakers’ Guild Furniture Exhibition in 1950, it is now being put into production at Carl Hansen & Son. The Huntsman Chair complements the Hunting table and is made from smoked oak and saddle leather. Carefully skived for a smooth transition between layers, the leather panels can be mounted on either brass or stainless steel brackets.

Established & Sons
Designed by Jamie Hayon, the Tudor chair is a rich piece of British history, thanks to its detailed leather stitching which features a pattern that has been used since the 1500s. Available in white or black, it is finished with gold legs and leaf stiching. It measures 46cm-wide x 56cm-deep x 92cm-high.

Stellar Works
The Valet chair, designed by David Rockwell for Stellar Works, is made using a single piece of cognac saddle leather. It also features a blackened steel frame and delicate brass stretcher. The chair measures 74.1cm-wide x 71.6cm-high.

The Agronomist Collection is the newest collaboration between Natuzzi Italia and Marcel Wanders. Made using rich leather upholstery, the Furrow armchair is finished with intricate saddle stitching. The leather used is from the brand’s Heritage collection, created specifically for this range. It is finished in a glossy texture for a retro feel.

Mater presents the Rocker chair by Shawn Place. The chair is made from full-grain vegetable-tanned leather supplied by premium manufacturer Sørensen. The smooth and strong surface will age with time to add character.

Aram Store
Following the anniversary of Bauhaus, the Aram store presents a limited edition of the Cantilever chair by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. Hamburg-based design duo Besau Marguerre have developed two new versions of the piece in two colours – pearl gloss chrome frame and anthracite leather, and champagne chrome with leather in soft-rose – combine the objectivity of the Bauhaus haptic, look and feel.


Handcrafted by Indigo, the Bradwell chair is a new addition to their furniture collection. The British manufacturer expands its range of luxury upholstered seating to present the petite occasional chair, featuring a traditional buttoned back. Crafted in a choice of three exclusive leather hides, including sage, peat and kodiak, it measures 40cm in height.
