The Story

The materials are king in the Uncommon Classics Armchair, with its padded caramel 100% Italian aniline leather seat, floating brass metal arms and bold blue hue delivering a distinctive look that’s all about cool contrasts – and indulging your inner pilot. 

The Original Designer
Who are United Strangers?

Exclusively available in Australia through Matt Blatt, the United Strangers’ collection, crafted by an award-winning team of artisans and designers, centres on original, sustainable furniture and homewares inspired by salvaged and repurposed materials - ensuring every piece tells its own story - including this Leather Sling Chair.

The United Strangers’ team is a socially responsible design community drawn from across the globe. New Zealand native Logan Komorowski, who began crafting recycled furniture at the age of 16, was the first of this merry band of strangers, and the United Strangers brand was born in 2009. Known for its trademark modern vintage style, the United Strangers aesthetic is inspired by famous old New York neighbourhoods and Logan’s passion for sustainably re-inventing a vintage vibe to appeal to a contemporary crowd.

Mad For Materials
The story behind the chair

For United Strangers, materials tell a product's story, they are in essence, its DNA. That’s why the US team scours the globe tracking down the captivating materials which inspire the brand’s designs.

The 100% aniline leather featured on the United Strangers Uncommon Classics armchair was specially created in the company's own tannery from imported premium hides from free-range South American cattle. The ideal example of the brand's focus on putting materials front and centre, the contrast between the padded leather seat, the blue upholstery which is reminiscent of military airforce style and the floating metal arms have all been crafted using old-school tools such as knives, scissors, hole punches, hammers, needles and bees-waxed thread to ensure each and every piece - just like this one - takes days to complete and is utterly unique. The metal legs were made in United Strangers' own foundry, where a six-layer process adds depth. Just sit in it and you'll soon see....

Serious About Quality
What is aniline leather?

Aniline leather refers to leather which has been treated with transparent, soluble vegetable dye (aniline), which acts as a sealant but allows the pore structure to remain open. As its coating is minimal, aniline leather absorbs body oils, stays soft and supple and develops a rich patina over time.
