Mid-Century Modern Halyard Flag Rope Lounge Chair

The Kardiel Flag Halyard chair comes with everything you see in the picture including the Genuine Top Grain Aniline Leather pillow and the sheepskin throw. Perfectly balanced and built with a solid stainless steel frame and 240 meters of textured flag line, this modern industrial beauty mimics the grace of the original. The “Halyard Rope Chair” was upon its unveiling in Denmark in 1960 destined for iconic status. The wide-set and low frame is excellent for an afternoon rest, especially when matched with the comfort of a sheepskin throw and down feather filled headrest.

Designing The Icon

There's an interesting, though possibly apocryphal story attached to its design by the Danish furniture designer Wegner. The story goes that Wegner conceived this design while on the beach towards the end of the 1940s. He supposedly modeled the grid-like seat in a sand dune, presumably with some sea tested sailing rope that was found onsite. (A ‘halyard’ is a line that hoists or covers a sail.) The design was brilliant and off the beaten path. The Halyard Rope chair went into production shortly after in the 1950s.

You may have seen or come across Hans Wegner's Flag Halyard Chair in design books or perhaps you’ve seen the design strategically placed in movie sets. The unlikely combination of rope, tubular steel, sheepskin and linen are still unprecedented in mainstream furniture crafting. Wegner’s motivation in using such contrasting materials was apparently not to exploit their textural interplay but simply to demonstrate his ability to design innovative, practical and comfortable furniture - in a variety of material.

Genuine Top Grain Aniline Leather

swatchA small percent of the world’s leather supply is of high enough quality for 100% Top Grain Aniline upholstered furniture. Aniline Dyeing is the process of soaking the hides in transparent aniline dyes which allows color to absorb into the natural hide. Top Grain Aniline leather is then topical stain protected to minimize liquid absorption during every day use but does not require imitation grain stamping methods which imprint a Faux grain over the majority of the leather surface. Without all the synthetic topical coatings, it breathes naturally making it comfortable for seating. It is soft, supple, durable and pliable, maintaining the characteristics of pure leather.

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.
