Monroe Mid Century Modern Aniline Leather Chair
Introducing a premium reproduction of the 1962 Børge Mogensen #2211 in thick, soft, Top Grain aniline dyed leather. Like the original, the classic cube design of the Kardiel reproduction of the Mogensen 2211 features individually zippered back cushions that weigh in at whopping 5 lbs each and are filled with 100% down feathers encased in a soft silk form fitting pouch. The signature side cushions are 100% dense formed foam designed to hold consistent shape as the years pass. The seat cushions feature a heavy multi density foam core topped with a plush quilted down pocket top layer. This premium feature combines soft to initial touch with a heavy, densely comfortable deeper seating experience.
Recreating the 1962 mid century modern icon
Børge Mogensen created the original 2211 for his own home in Gentofte Denmark in 1962. This premium quality reproduction of the 2211 armchair features solid stained ash legs. The handcrafted hardwood frame is graciously lined with dense fitted polyurethane foam before being upholstered. The series feels solid to the touch. The upholstery consists of Premium thick Soft Top Grain Aniline Leather cut from genuine leather hides. The top grain displays the natural skin characteristics you would expect to see from the unprocessed genuine leather and reflects the light accordingly. This premium leather is the highest quality available and breathes naturally dissipating heat for comfortable extended seating. All seams and piping are hand-stitched. The seat platform is re-enforced using a genuine no sag metal Sinuous Spring system.
The simplicity and clean lines of this Danish Mid century modern icon make this one of the most sought after Mogensen designs. The body has an airy feel about it as it suspends over 4 architecturally square solid ash legs. Its comfortably proportioned size and lofty fitted cushions line the seat back and sides. Collectors of modernism pieces seek out the 2211 series for its exceptional midcentury modern design. When reproduced with the original dimensions and ingredients such as the breathable aniline leather, dense foam, Metal Sinuous springs and down feathers, the 2211 is a comfortable mid century modern seating experience designed for everyday use.
Genuine Top Grain Aniline Leather
A 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.

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.
