BRIGHT BLUE WOOL UPHOLSTERY (#983)$5.00
Our bright blue wool upholstery (#983) is in the Steelcut Trio line from Kvadrat, a Danish textile producer. It was designed by Frans Dijkmeijer. It's 90% wool and 10% nylon and is comprised of three colors interwoven to produce the complex and subtle effect shown here. Though it looks unicolored from a distance, up close you can easily read the lively multicolored depth.
The upholstered slat covers which wrap the gently curving slats on our line of steel seating affix securely and discreetly with velcro. The inside face of each slat is covered with durable ballistic nylon fabric and the core is filled with a high-density foam cushion. Each slat is essentially an individual padded backpack strap with an added hook-and-loop closure.
We designed this system so that over time folks could swap out the slats for new ones and thus easily re-upholster their DoubleButter chair with a new look at a modest cost. The plan is to add new and occasional limited-edition upholstery options on the regular, so stay tuned. For now, if you want to order a new set of upholstery for fresh look on a piece you already own, just give us a shout and we'll make it happen.
