Leather Accent Chair-licious
If you think brown is out, think again. This elegant, striking and ridiculously unique chair is a special, delicious treat. The marriage of elements are in perfect harmony. Yummy! The Hair-on-Hide (cowhide to those outside the great state of Texas) is from the Charolais breed and has a dreamy creamy nougat coloration, with the spine being slightly darker in the center with the entire outside arm and back to match. The chair arms are a dark chocolate of “90% Cacao” colored leather that has that snap! The seat is deeply-incised imprinted crocodile leather. Simple turned legs are what takes this into the final fantasy.
After years of custom making upholstery selections, this leather chair is in the top ten. The “sit” is firm but the pitch makes it the perfect “texting” chair. The saddle arms have that ergonomic effect on your resting elbow. Comfortable, ready for the modern home that needs warming up, as well as the “we want something different” that works with what already exists in the room and adds lightness and brightness.
The question that is most often asked is: What if I spill on the hair on the hide? Oooooh, these cows have been doing much worse out there in the pastures. Wipe it down with a damp cloth and all will be well. The second question is: Will it go out of style? The answer is no! Just think about mid-century modern Eames chairs that have HOH rugs beneath them for the past 70 years. The Italians are taking inspiration from the American West and including HOH on their high-style designs. HOH ranch chairs and rugs have been in style for ranchers for the past 200 or more years.
I love the leather textures all working to delight the eye and mind. With all the rejection of brown out there in the world, brown done right is always in style. Elevating the “wow” factor to the next level, this leather accent chair brings any room together.
