Leather: Ceras is an incredibly soft grain leather with brilliant colors, yet entirely suitable for everyday applications. To achieve this result the cowhides undergo a special process during finishing, which gives this leather a strong and slightly matte top layer. The surface is lightly polished to preserve the original structure of the hide, with obvious natural attributes. A perfect choice for the aficionado of a somewhat thicker leather with the touch of a wax leather.
Supple, almost nonchalant of the upholstery and crafted details emphasizes the powerful form of Lloyd Chair is comfort, timeless, and elegant.
