Some of the most relevant modernism seating designs were created in the 1950's & 60's. Whether your Mid Mod design approach is themed “Mad Men” or the classic “I love Lucy”, Jackie’s profile will take you there. Perhaps you are in search of the midcentury icon that is large enough for real life. Jackie features substantial proportions and is designed to effortlessly perform mixed roles, whether you are curling up your legs for some comfortable reading time or formally hosting in black.
Jackie's expansive profile is achieved by using 2 wider plump overstuffed smooth surface seat cushions without button tufting. A continuous horizontal solid wood bottom seat rail curves at each end rolling upward and outward into vertical flaring arms framing the Sofa with continuity. The fixed cushioned low profile single piece back features one row of period correct blind tufting. Perhaps the base of Jackie is the most telling detail of the design.
Whether placed in the center of the room or with its back to the wall, the solid gently curved varnished wood undercarriage adds the element of handcrafted artisan design. The wooden mid century modern flair leg is the perfect option for suspending Jackie’s frame from the floor. The degree of leg flair angle was carefully measured staying authentic to this original 1950’s design feature. The timeless splayed leg design with the correct degree of outward angle pulls all of Jackie’s modernism features together capturing the true feeling of the period.
A small percent of the world’s leather supply is of high enough quality for 100% Top Grain Aniline upholstered furniture. Aniline Dyeing is the process of soaking the hides in transparent aniline dyes which allows color to absorb into the natural hide. Top Grain Aniline leather is then topical stain protected to minimize liquid absorption during every day use but does not require imitation grain stamping methods which imprint a Faux grain over the majority of the leather surface. Without all the synthetic topical coatings, it breathes naturally making it comfortable for seating. It is soft, supple, durable and pliable, maintaining the characteristics of pure leather.
Making up only 5% of the worlds leather supply Top Grain Aniline is the best quality, softest leather we offer. This premium leather is Aniline vat dyed with the color penetrating through to the back of the hide. Top Grain refers to the actual surface of the hide presents a natural leather appearance and touch you would expect.
This Jackie series is upholstered in premium Top Grain Aniline European leather. This is a significant upgrade in leather options. Top Grain is the actual surface of the cowhide. While no one knows the actual number, a small percentage of furniture sold today is upholstered in Premium Top Grain Aniline leather. Some claim as low as 5%. Aniline dying describes one of the two processes in which color is applied to the leather with the dye penetrating the leather and extending beyond the surface, into the leather itself. For modern furniture requiring a clean aesthetic, Top Grain Aniline Leather is both “liquid vat” (deep penetrating) and surface dyed to achieve the main color selection and to conceal uneven tones and blemishes in the hide. Top grain aniline is the softest leather and naturally breaths well. Because Top Grain refers to the actual surface of the animal hide it presents a natural leather appearance you would expect. While it is true that raw Top Grain Aniline absorbs spills easier, Furniture grade Top Grain leather features a stain resistant treatment making it exceptional for everyday lower maintenance use. Although rare, nothing wears, looks or feels better than premium Aniline Top Grain leather. Over time it patinas and becomes more comfortable versus wearing out.
“Split Grain” is the most common leather used on furniture. This reproduction has been upgraded to Top Aniline leather and does not use Split Grain leather. Nonetheless, this paragraph will help explain the difference in quality and price between the leather types. Split Grain is the underside of the hide that has been separated from the surface or “top” of the hide. While defined as actual leather, Split Grain leather does not have the natural surface grain of the top of the cowhide. A topical layer of insoluble pigment is applied to the surface of split grain leather, which is then stamped or “grain embossed” to imitate the surface appearance of actual leather. This topical layer contains the color that the leather will be.
