Our newest line of seating pays homage to one of Mies van Der Rohe's earliest projects in the United States, even before he becomes an American Citizen.

In 1937, Mies van der Rohe came to the United States for the first time to design a summer house in Jackson Hole, Wyoming for Helen Resor (Museum of Modern Art trustee) and her husband. The house was to be built over a man-made stream flowing from the Snake River. Floor-to-ceiling glazing were to enclose both sides of the main room. Similar glazing was previously used by van der Rohe in Europe in both the Tugendhat House in Czechoslovakia and the German Pavilion for the International Exposition in Barcelona in 1928.

Van der Rohe"s design of the house went hand in hand with his choice of materials: unpainted reddish black cypress boards for the exterior cladding as well as the interior walls, ceilings, and doors of the upper floor and service wing; and a pinkish native fieldstone for the walls on the ground level, the fireplace wall, and the central stairway. Van der Rohe also made an interior architecture out of the placement of furniture and the positioning of murals and freestanding painting.

The Resor House was never built; only the foundation remains to this day in a dried up river bed.

We have designed this Resorhaus Lounge Chair to be a compliment to other chairs we make that are inspired by the Barcelona style furniture. Featuring a high back, deep seats, tufted seat and back cushions that run the entire width and stainless steel tubular legs.

Modern Classics Furniture purchases leather from a variety of tanneries in order to provide our own collection of colors. Not all leathers are available for use on all products. Each product in our catalog will indicate which leather is available for that piece of furniture. We have divided our leather selections into two groups, Standard and Premium with different price levels within each group. All the leathers we offer feature:

  • Top-grain leather from Grade A hides
  • Smooth or Textured, depending on the color
  • Vegetable Drum Dyed with Moisture and UV protection built into the dye
  • Made in Italy and imported to our factory
  • No split hides or bonded leather
  • Leather thickness is generally 1.0 - 1.2 mm

All our leathers are considered equally durable and are ideal for home or commercial use. To read more about leather, read our A Guide to Understanding Upholstery Leather: A Primer. Also, we are happy to mail you a physical piece of leather so you can hold it in your hands. Click on any of these swatches to see an enlarged view.

Below are the color swatches of the leather colors we offer, along with price level, Level 1 being the lowest cost and Level 4 being the highest cost. Not all leathers are offered on all products and have varying price levels, so please refer to each individual product page for which leathers are applicable. Our Standard Leathers (denoted with the prefix L1) are top-grain, aniline-dyed, and then color corrected with a slight embossing to create a more uniform grain pattern. Our Premium leathers (denoted with the prefix L2) are also top-grain, aniline-dyed but have a soft feel to them and much of the hides natural grain patterns are retained.
