Archetypal designs are revisited with luxurious leather treatments in one of the hottest trends for this autumn winter. Read on as we share three of our favourites.

(Above) Lightweight and stackable this iconic design was developed by Fritz Hansen in the 1950’s. Originally with three legs the design was later revised and unveiled as we know it today. (Below from left) Leather upholstery is crafted using traditional techniques known from saddle making. Available in two heights, the saddle like seat is mounted to the bearing structure and fixed with leather straps; Inspired by classic post-war design, the Canteen Utility chair can be customised with over 75 coloured leathers.
