Our tailored, modern version of a traditional Parisian club chair is a study in contrasts: compact but comfortable; inviting yet stately; fashionable and traditional.
The leather we chose is exceedingly special, the pinnacle of old-world, vegetable tanned leather. Made in limited quantities in Tuscany, each hide takes up to 60 days to tan. Over such a length of time, colors deepen and textures become accentuated. The finished leather continues to change over the course of its life. Our signature “modern saddle” color will darken and burnish into a rich caramel as it ages.
The frame is traditionally constructed in the United States. It takes six hides and a master’s touch to upholster each chair. Since every hide is subtly different, hides were hand-selected into complementary groups and then positioned on the frame to showcase the unique characteristics of each. These chairs are not mass produced. The intensive process of creating each one necessarily limits the quantity we have available.
These chairs marked by elegant, scaled-down proportions and works perfectly in smaller spaces. Handsome nailhead trim on the back and straight wood legs add a sophisticated warm finish. These chairs look great in pairs. Arranging several of these chairs together creates an arresting tableau over which to appreciate the subtle variations of the leather. Their intimate size allows pairs to be incorporated easily into any room in the house.
Outside dimensions are 28.5” high; 29.5” deep; 26.5" wide; inside dimension of the seat is 21" x 22.5" seat depth. Weight is approximately 40 pounds.
Cushion Material/Frame Info
The frame is a mix of southern pine and birch. The seat is an 8-way hand tied spring unit covered with a 3” foam pad.
Your 33 chair will need minimal care. The aging process will showcase the leather’s natural beauty. Maintenance is only required when unusual circumstances occur, such as large water marks, scratches and ink marks. Light dirt or scuffs can be cleaned with a soft dry brush or towel. Our natural leather cleaner can be used on heavier spills or stains. The leather’s natural burnishing and darkening will gradually envelop accidental discolorations. Using water or soap on the chair will not hurt the leather and will remove the stain; however may slightly darken the affected area.
A customer care representative will contact you after reservation to discuss delivery details.

About the Leather: Modern Saddle
Modern Saddle – Modern Saddle is vegetable tanned leather crafted in a small Tuscan tannery. A process that requires an artisan skillset and old-world practices that remain in only a handful of tanneries worldwide. Without the addition of chemicals to set the dyes, the tanning process never truly ends. You will notice as you use your bag that the leather begins to patina, gradually darkening as it's exposed to the sun, the natural oils on your hands, and the bumps and scrapes of everyday use. This is the process we want you to be aware of and revel in: the bag growing more beautiful with use and age and becoming even more unique to you. Over the course of its life, you can expect Modern Saddle to evolve from its initial golden color, burnishing a rich shade of dark caramel.
