The Swan Chair was originally designed in 1958 by Danish designer and architect Arne Jacobsen for use throughout the Amsterdam Royal Hotel. The Swan Chair is an example of a classic furniture design inspired by the movement to adapt organic forms into our interior spaces. The Swan Chairs distinguished shape was created by omitting all straight lines from its design curved surfaces. The elegant shape is generous for lounging yet has an minimal airy appearance.

This highly accurate reproduction of the original Swan Chair features the finest in materials. The best materials are used. From the molding of the cold pressed foam around the fiberglass shell to every stitch, each of our reproduction Swan Chairs are thoughtfully crafted by hand. Aniline Leather is the premier choice. Aniline is leather that has been dyed all the way through. It has no artificial top layer of anything applied. It is soft, pliable with a texture that caresses the hand as it runs over its surface. The porous nature of aniline leather allows it to breathe which in turn makes it that much more comfortable and durable. The quality that goes into a piece of furniture ensures its longevity.
This chair is not made by Fritz Hansen. We have no affiliation with Fritz Hansen.
What it means when others indicate “100% Italian Leather.”
When the specifications of the furniture in question state that it is made with 100% leather or 100% Italian Leather but it does not state 100% full Grain Aniline Leather then it is made using 100% Corrected Grain Leather. Most, if not all reproductions in the mid price range are upholstered with Corrected Grain Leather. Corrected Grain is technically a form of leather that has a layer of polyurethane applied to the surface, which is then stamped or embossed using a synthetic plastic print roller to have the appearance of leather. By law, In the U.K and Australia corrected grain can no longer be sold as 100% leather. When that embossed polyurethane top layer wears through, your option is new furniture or a complete re-upholstery job.
100% Full Grain Aniline Italian Leather
One of Kardiel’s quality differences
You cannot buy a higher quality leather than Aniline. Aniline dyed leather is associated with various names depending on the manufacturer or the furniture company. You may come across names like premium aniline, naked aniline, aniline full grain, or true aniline, they’re all the same. Aniline is leather that has been dyed all the way through. It has no artificial top layer of anything applied. It is soft, pliable with a texture that caresses the hand as it runs over its surface. The porous nature of aniline leather allows it to breathe which in turn makes it that much more comfortable and durable. Aniline is genuine leather and patinas over time versus cracking and wearing out.
