The Leather

Upholstered in full-aniline leather, Steiner's leather will take on a patina that gets better and better with age. The top layer is full-grain hide that contains unique natural variations in tone. Full-grain leather has unique markings that are as individual as your fingerprints. Markings can include insect bites, wrinkles, sun spots, and stretch marks that were developed over the course of that animal’s life. Through age and use, this leather will develop a warm sheen known as “patina”. It’s that patina that gives an armchair that comforting, vintage look.

This leather patinas quickly, giving it a beautifully unique finish — but always be aware that every hide, and therefore every armchair, is totally unique, and therefore will look different than the product photo. We recommend Steiner to pet parents or young families. Since it is already perfectly imperfect, any additional scratches from claws, paws, or fingernails simply add to its character.

Colour Accuracy 

We try our best to ensure photography depicts colours as accurately as possible. Colours can appear different depending on the type of display you are viewing from, therefore we recommend viewing in person for true colour representation.

• Dust before cleaning, if vacuuming use soft attachment.

• We recommend cleaning by specialists using only proprietary leather care products appropriate to leather type.

• Dry in shade away from heat.

Spot Cleaning

• Professional cleaning may be required for persistent stains.

Please Note: Failure to regularly maintain leather may lead to a build-up of perspiration and body oils that may discolour leather

Upholstery Care


The upholstery should not be exposed for long periods to direct sunlight or heat exposure as this may cause fading and deterioration of the cover material.

It is recommended to give the upholstery a frequent vacuuming on low suction or light brushing.

In the event of spillage it is imperative to act quickly. Carefully soak up any excess liquid, ideally using the edge of a white paper towel, then dab gently with a fresh towel taking care to avoid soaking in or spreading of the remaining liquid.

It is advisable to seek professional help when serious stains occur.
