Full grain aniline leather from Scandinavian bullhides | 1.2 - 1.4 mm, vegetable tanned
The classic vegetable-tanned leather will develop the best patina over time because it absorbs light and air. The uncolored vegetable-tanned leather will develop a patina from light sand color to cognac.
Vegetable-tanned leather is susceptible to water and stains, which contributes to the natural patina and makes this leather extremely luxurious.

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.
