From Klein Azure to Omega Doeskin, this chair is available in bold colours to play up a striking look or a subtle colour to match neutral hues. This classic retro chair will put a spin in any room.

Product Questions

Ask us question
Do you ship outside of the U.S.? And how about U.S. territories outside of the continental United States like Puerto Rico and Guam? ? Of course! We can ship anywhere in the world. Shipping charges vary depending on location, however, so to find out the total cost to ship your order outside the contiguous U.S., give us a call.
Do you offer financing? We offer an alternative to traditional financing known as Netpay30. To use this optional feature, simply go to ‘My Account,’ click on ‘Purchase Order,’ and then click on ‘NetPay30’ to apply the payment terms to that particular order.
What if my order is incorrect or damaged? Should your order be incorrect or damaged in any way, call us right away. We will make it a priority to rectify any mistake and ship the correct product as soon as possible.
If I have fabric or material that I’ve purchased elsewhere, can I send it to you so that you can use it to customize my order? Yes.  Although we offer a wide variety of fabrics and leathers, we understand some customers may prefer to use their own materials for upholstery.  Call us for a price quote. Quantity minimums apply.

My Dad had this chair back in the 1970s. I used to sit in it as a kid, so now I bought one for me and my Dad. We both love it.
