Platform Mid Century Modern Chair
With features like down feather cushions and design origins from Danish Mid Century Modern, the Stilt Chair is not only comfortable, it is stunning from the front, the back and sides. Stilt owes its comfortable longevity to the premium ingredients from which it is crafted. This includes, a genuine Metal Sinuous No Sag "S Coil" Suspension seat platform, High quality multi-density foam and amply Down Feather Cushions. The chair is architecturally suspended within a solid wood frame base and back frame. The body design of the platform chair is minimal and sleek with clean lines.
From the side, the wedge designed body of Stilt angles to some degree backwards with the back cushion following the same angle. The angle provides uniformity in design with cushion following frame and a natural pitch perfect seating platform results. The modernist cube back features reversible and zippered cushion filled with a dense foam core for memory retention and down feathers for softer seating comfort.
Inspired by Mid Century Modern Danish Design
An icon of mid century modern design, the Stilt Chair is well known for its architectural wooden base “platform” which effortlessly lifts the body from the floor. The height of the seat rail just under the cushions was reduced significantly in order to add the height to the lengthy stiletto wood legs. This creates the airy feel of the footprint of the Stilt Chair visually taking less space in the room.
A significant portion of the development cost of the Stilt is due to the heirloom finished solid American Ash frame base. This hefty architectural element spans the front, the sides, underneath and artistically extends upwards supporting a significant portion of the back. The depth of the wooden frame exceeds that of the width of the upholstered chair, thus creating interesting angled space in the back between the frame and the chair at the base. The wooden platform is a solid and architecturally stunning element from all angles allowing you to place the chair at any location in the room.
The seat cushion is affixed to the chair body providing a clean well kept appearance and features a multi-density foam core for memory retention. The seat cushion is then stuffed with down feathers. A richly comfortable seating experience results, an unusual trait from such a streamlined mid-century modern design. The Stilt Chair is a substantial modernist design for a relatively small investment. From the Ash wood frame, to the down feather stuffed cushions to the genuine metal spring system, the Stilt Chair is an enduring modernist design, with just a touch of Danish.

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.
