The leather used is of the finest grade, Scottish hide.
This is an absolute one-off. Although you will be able to find other H-269's out there, you won't find one that has been finished to such a high standard. We have not seen any other H-269 chairs re-upholstered in such a way.

About Jindřich Halabala...
Czech industrial designer, writer, and educator Jindřich Halabala was a significant proponent of modernist, industrially manufactured furniture in Czechoslovakia and had a tremendous influence on the interior design of many interwar and postwar Czech homes, with an aesthetic that drew from Czech Cubism, Art Déco, and classic European mid-century modernism.
The H-269 Lounge Chair (early 1930s) is arguably the most iconic Czech design, instantly recognizable for its exaggerated, curved armrests. Like his Scandinavian contemporaries Alvar Alto (1898-1976) and Bruno Mathsson (1907-1988), Halabala utilized bentwood in most of his chair designs.
Halabala retired in 1970 and passed away in 1978 in Brno. His designs can be found in the collections of the Moravská Gallery in Brno and the Museum of Modern Art in Olomouc.
