Red thread in my KUUN selection is the timeless character of objects. And this chair definitely fits in! Looking at it every day in my living room, I just know it will never, never bore me. The strong but simple design combined with luxurious leather material makes it one of a kind. The soft nature-colored leather is made in Mexico’s leather capital Leon. With time passing by, the leather gets the characteristic look of used leather. The older the chair, the more interesting its looks will become … just like the stories coming along … The black colored structured emphasizes the simple but strong design of the structure.
People ask me all the time if the chair, and more specific the whole in the lower back of the seating, is comfortable. The answer is absolutely yes! Even more, the chair is extremely comfortable. Once you get seated, you feel like staying. The wide seating and the reclined back, makes this chair perfect to lounge.
The Cali chair is designed by a young dynamic couple I met in Mexico City: Pauline and Oscar. She is French and he is Mexican. Together they manage their small design studio LéonLéon Design. Each piece LéonLéon Design produces is 100% handcrafted with the help of local artisans. Therefore each item is unique. Don't expect industrial perfection. But appreciate the authentic imperfection made possible by a mix of artisanal textures & techniques with contemporary design.
*All items sold by KUUN are handmade. Therefore they may have small "imperfections" or slight variations of color and design between each product—we think that is part of the beauty of having something made with care by individual artisans.
