full grain, uncoated pure aniline ox hide

 

Only the very finest hides are chosen. The tanning and dying processes are one and the same. No final pigmentation or coating are applied, so slight variations within hides and between hides may occur. Sif has the most exclusive touch and the highest breathability. It has the most natural surface structure which is whey scars or other marks may be visible. Be aware that the light or vegetal colours will age with patina and grace – however, they are also very susceptible to stains. The darker colours will fade somewhat if exposed to sunlight for a longer period of time. We recommend this type of leather for those who want the very best comfort and quality, and who love the graceful ageing of the very best leather.

semi-aniline ox hide with a natural grain and a coated surface

 

More uniform hides are chosen for this type of leather. It has a largely uniform surface structure with some visible scars or other marks. After aniline dying, a pigmentation coat is added to give perfect colour uniformity. Finally, a top coating is added to give the leather a protective layer. This type of leather has a good touch and low breathability. The advantages of Thor are that it requires low-maintenance and resists most stains and fading from sunlight. We recommend this type of leather for homeowners who want a good balance between maintenance and comfort.

The advantages of Loke are that is requires low-maintenance and resists most stains and fading from sunlight. We recommend this type of leather for homeowners who want easy maintenance at the lowest possible cost as well as for restaurants, hotels, public spaces etc.

Fiord is a versatile woollen upholstery textile with a subtle three-dimensional look. Originally designed by Norwegian designer Tone Barnung, it comes in refreshed colours created in collaboration with Louise Sigvardt. The construction of Fiord combines a melange yarn with a unicoloured yarn that creates pearl-like dots that play across the textile’s surface. Ranging from dark to light, the 27 colourways for Fiord explore complimentary opposites. They bring together hard and soft tones, as well as cold and warm shades. The melange yarn has the effect of softening the hue of the unicoloured yarn while accentuating the way the pearls stand out.

Divina Melange 2

has been extremely well received by the market. Divina family is a textile collection characterised by its lack of texture and nap and consequently the fabric accentuates the dimensions of the furniture, giving prominence to the colours. Melange means mixture. The existing six grey and beige colourways are produced by mixing varying proportions of either black or brown wool with white wool. The different colours of wool are mixed before the garment is spun. The new colourways have come about by dipping the two base colours in bold, virtually luminous pigments. The result is 24 coloured melanges.

Divina MD

is an upholstery textile designed by Finn Sködt. Available in sophisticated, rich colours, which reveal hidden depths as the perspective of the viewer changes, it makes a strong colour statement. Thanks to its smooth, directionless and consistent surface, it complements the shape of furniture very well and is ideal for organically shaped furniture.

Suitable for soft seating for both contract and private use, material-dyed Divina MD is soft, comfortable and durable. A heavily milled textile, it is manufactured by weaving yarn in a plain weave and then shrinking it in a mechanical process, which uses high temperatures. This method gives it an attractive felt-like look, which is similar to Divina and Divina Melange, the other fabrics in the Divina ‘family’.

Divina 3 upholstery has become a classic within the collection and is still very popular. Finn Sködt is renowned for his exceptional ability in first finding and then blending colours. His starting point is always in the primary colours – red, yellow and blue; after which he begins to pick out other colours and nuances Finn Sködt’s work especially favours clear colours and is often inspired by his background in graphics and the arts. Divina is a full-cloth product, which means that it is manufactured by weaving the yarn in a coarse linen hose casing, after which, it is subjected to mechanical processing using very high temperatures, at the same time as it is being coloured. This creates a situation where the surface becomes smooth, directionless and uniform in a manner very similar to the properties of felt.

Kvadrat’s first textile

Hallingdal

has become the archetype of woollen textiles. The very durable upholstery fabric was originally designed in 1965 by Nanna Ditzel. Hallingdal 65 is made of wool and viscose: the wool provides excellent durability and flexibility, whilst the viscose adds brilliance and depth to the colour. Both materials are dyed before they are spun, which highlights the rich texture of the fabric.

The fabric comes in 58 colourways: some are unicoloured, others are constructed from 2 different unicoloured yarns, and the rest are created using unicoloured yarns in combination with melange yarns. Many of the colours are drawn from the original colour scale, including the 22 new shades, which have been ‘rediscovered’. The versatile palette includes neutral and strong, primary colours, as well as the designer’s favourite hues: turquoise and pink.

Tonus 4 is an elastic upholstery fabric by late textile artist Nina Koppel. Ideal for modern organic furniture and characterised by rare colour richness, it comes in a total of 47 hues.

Tonus brings colours to life in vibrant, precise fashion. Building on this characteristic, the intensity and brightness of all the colours have been increased. The new earthy, golden tones in the palette are taken from Nina Koppel’s original colour archive. They show her brilliant sense of colour, which reflects that she mastered all facets of the colour design from the warm tones associated with spices and Oriental mysticism, to the cooler Nordic aquamarine colours.

Steelcut Trio

features an innovative weave, which gives the fabric a three-dimensional surface resembling small pyramids or steel points and, despite the complexity of the weave, a simple and precise expression. The difference between Steelcut Trio and Steelcut lies in the way they are coloured. Unlike Steelcut, Steelcut Trio is yarn-dyed and made from 3 differently coloured yarns, often with very bright tones on the warp and lighter tones on the weft. This combination not only accentuates the three dimensional character of the weave, it also adds life to the fabric: though it looks unicoloured from a distance, different shades are revealed as the viewer gets nearer.

Steelcut

is a hardwearing upholstery textile, which is an evolution of Steelcut in an additional colour scale. It is designed by Frans Dijkmeijer and coloured by Giulio Ridolfo. The fabric features an innovative weave, which creates a three-dimensional surface resembling small pyramids or steel points. This gives Steelcut 2 a simple, precise expression, despite the complex weaving technique used in its production.

Fame fabric – price group 1

95% wool of New Zealand, 5% polyamide – Durability: 200.000 Martindale

 

Fame is a unique woollen upholstery fabric with a wearability of 200,000 Martindale, but which is nevertheless extra soft and stretchable. The fabric is silky smooth thanks to its exclusive fine woollen worsted – a finer wool than is generally seen on the contract market, but assured of outstanding durability via new yarn structures and spinning methods. Fame possesses unique upholstering properties. The fabric stretches 9.5% in both directions. Perfect upholstering is therefore easier with Fame, even on furniture with round and organic forms.

The new scale has a dynamic expression incorporating hints of green, yellow, orange and red. Brown, copper and rust tones make a strong visual impact in combination with fresh and luminous pastels. Refreshing blue shades are chosen for their fluidity, and they float across the material in waves ranging from grey-blue to aqua into deep indigo.

Remix

is a woolen upholstery fabric, created by the acclaimed Italian designer Giulio Ridolfo. It is made from melange yarns, with each thread consisting of three different colours. For each colourway, two different threads are used. The result is irregular colours playing across the surface of the fabric. It is available in many colours, ranging from burnt reds and oranges, dusty blues and greens and subtle charcoal tones to natural shades of yellow, beige and sand.

Canvas is a refined woolen upholstery textile, which comes in seductive yet subtle colourways inspired by women’s couture. Featuring a relatively voluminous and soft weave, Canvas is constructed from material dyed yarns and, consequently, offers exceptional colour richness. Its yarns comprise up to three colours and, as two differently coloured yarns are used to create every colourway, each combines up to six hues. Versatile Canvas is suitable for both contract and private use: it is very durable and, as a result, offers a long-life span. Many of the colourways for Canvas complement those of

Hans Wegner

,

1965

Upon delving into Hans J. Wegner’s vast archives, Carl Hansen & Son found a sofa design Wegner created for the modern living room in 1965. The sofa’s simple design features vertical and horizontal lines that are softened by cushions, which work with the frame’s angling to ensure a comfortable sitting posture. Carl Hansen & Son is relaunching the sofa in a new series that comprises two-seat and three-seat versions titled CH162 and CH163, respectively.
“The sofa series was originally known as the ‘Down Cushion Sets’, because cushions filled with feathers were an innovation at the time. Wegner chose feather cushions to create a soft and inviting look – a style that broke with the standard practice of using cushions of fixed upholstery. It is yet another example of Wegner’s unconventional approach to furniture design that makes him unique. We are proud to manufacture his furniture and bring his ever-relevant treasure trove of designs out into the light for everyone to see and enjoy,” says Knud Erik Hansen, CEO of Carl Hansen & Son.
The sofa’s legs have four equal sides that grow wider at the front when they reach the armrest, creating a triangular shape. An enlarged wooden plug in the middle of this triangle not only becomes the sofa’s most characteristic detail, but also hides a screw that makes reupholstering much easier. It is this innovative approach to giving functionally necessary elements unique expression that is particularly characteristic of Wegner.
When the sofa is viewed from the side, one can see that rather than following the sofa’s front edge downward, the upholstery slants inward on its path down towards the side rail, breaking the stringent lines in the simplest way.
The series is available in oak, walnut and ash with a variety of finishes, and the textile options includes many colours and fabric styles.
