Our Executive Flat Bar Side Chair is inspired by the Mies van der Rohe chair design known the world over as the BRNO Chair. We make our version using only the high quality 12mm flat stock #304 stainless steel polished to a mirror finish. Our upholstery is top-grain leather imported from Italy. Excellent sewing detail is maintained on the all the chair seams. The seat cushions are high resilient - high density polyurethane foam over an internal spring suspension. You will note that our seat backs and bottom also have a flat, sleek look.
Modern Classics Furniture offers two levels of Leather: Standard and Premium Leather. Each of the these groupings feature:
- Top-grain leather from Grade A hides
- Semi aniline-dyed (standard) and 100% aniline-dyed (premium)
- Made in Italy and imported to our factory
- No split hides or bonded leather
We are happy to mail you a physical piece of leather so you can hold it in your hands.
Below are the leather colors we offer for our Executive Flat Arm Side Chair. 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.

Other Metal Frame Color Choices
Besides the standard #304 Polished Stainless Steel shown above, we do our own in-house powdercoating over the stainless steel frame. We offer 6 standard colors, but our powder supplier offers about 6,000 colors, so maybe you can get that fluorescent pink frame after all. These are the finishes we have, and there is a slight extra charge for the finishing, $150 and $75 for the ottoman.

BRNO chairs and Florence Knoll chairs and sofas arrived today. They are nice stuff. We would like to order 10 more BRNO chairs.
I own an interior design firm in Las Vegas, NV. We are always looking for great quality vendors and recently we came across Modern Classics. We purchased seven classic BRNO chairs in a custom leather for one of our clients and couldn't be more pleased with them. We are working on our second order for another client and hope to continue to have a long and favorable relationship with this company.
As a licensed architect working over 30 years in the industry, I was pleased with the BRNO style chairs that were made by Modern Classics. They look great with our Toer Expansion Table manufacturered by Calligaris out of Italy.
