Aniline leather has none or only a light surface treatment which preserve the leather's natural surface and soft touch. All natural markings will be visible on aniline leather which contributes to the leather's exclusive appearance. The light surface treatment makes the leather breath and comfortable to sit in. On the other hand this kind of leather is very susceptible to dirt and will in time become a little darker. Only raw material from the best selection is used for aniline leather. In aniline leather it is possible to see the hair follicle in the grain. Raw material: Grain leather from South German cattle hides.

Alongside the impressive Chieftain Chair, Finn Juhl and cabinetmaker Niels Vodder also introduced the Chieftain Sofa in 1949.
While the Chieftain Chair immediately went into production, there was, as far as we know, only produced one single issue of the Chieftain Sofa.
At Designmuseum Danmark in Copenhagen where the Guild Exhibitions originally took place, the sofa is still part of the museum’s permanent collection of modern Danish furniture.
Today, this extraordinary piece of furniture is manufactured in a very exclusive, handcrafted version in walnut. The sofa is upholstered by hand in Denmark from extra-large hides of the finest quality.
