This Loveseat and Sofa were inspired by the Lounge Collection created by US designer Florence Knoll (1917-present) to have a spare, angular profile that reflects the objective perfectionism of modern design. As a pioneer of the Knoll Planning Unit, Florence Knoll modestly called these pieces the "fill-in pieces that no one else wants to do." We absolutely love this design for it's clean lines and comfort.
Our Florence Knoll Loveseat and Sofa reproductions are offered in either Italian leather or our exclusive boucle textured fabric. Each chair is handmade using modern furniture construction techniques for superb seat comfort and durability. Some of the features of our Loveseats and Sofas include:

Below are the swatches of the leather colors we offer for the Florence Knoll Collection. Our standard leathers (denoted with the prefix L1) are top-grain, semi-aniline-dyed, corrected with a slight embossing. Our Premium leathers (denoted with the prefix L2) are top-grain, 100% aniline-dyed and have a soft feel to them and much of the hides natural grain patterns are retained. They are also a little shinier than the Standard Leather. We do not use split hides leather. Leather thickness is generally 1.0 - 1.2 mm depending on application of seating component for stretching and tailoring the upholstery design and condition. Both the Standard and Premium Leathers are considered equally durable and are ideal for home or commercial use.

We now offer our own exclusive collection "boucle" textured fabric in an extensive collection of colors that are particularly suited for the mid-century modern furniture we make. This fabric and colors were custom made just for us, at a well known North America mill. Made of 100% polyester, our boucles are soft, durable (250K double rubs), stain and UV resistant. We have arranged these swatches in color groups below. We are happy to mail you a physical piece of fabric so you can hold it in your hands, just complete this material sample request form. If you have a specific fabric in mind, we can either order it or we can use your supplied fabric. In either case, we need to approve the fabric to ensure it can be applied to the specific piece of furniture and we will need to provide a price quote.
