Love it - Aged leather club chair

When it comes to leather club chairs, I've noticed wherever you're shopping, they all start to look the same. The purpose of "design" is to not only be functional and create relatability for the buyer, but it should also push boundaries and present a unique vision of the classics. Crate & Barrel accomplishes this with one of the most beautiful yet unexpected leather chairs I've seen in a long time. Inspired by a 1930's Parisian Club chair, they aged and recreated a look that is classic yet dynamic. With large nail head detailing, leather aged to perfection and a contrasting mohair upholstered seat with leather welting, this chair gives you a multitude of textures, materials and historical throw backs. For me, that's what design is all about!

I love the look of old leather! These are so beautiful, and would be just perfect almost everywere... Makes me want to snuggle up into it, a cold autumn evening ... after a long walk in the mountain...
