Fabric, Leather & Finish Options
4 CATEGORIES OF LEATHER
We offer more than 140 leather and fabric options for customizing your next Stressless chair or sofa.
Batick is a corrected, pigment improved and grain embossed upholstery leather, which has had most of its natural marks removed. Batick may have a two-tone color effect to liven up the surface. Batick is resistant to fading, although changes in color will occur over time due to use and exposure to light. A protective layer of lacquer simplifies cleaning. Easy cleaning, excellent durability and a reasonable price make Batick a good choice.
Paloma is a slightly corrected leather with a combination of dyes and pigments that smooth down some of the structure (the grain pattern) of the leather. The grain sturcture in Paloma may, however, vary a little in some spots along the furniture, and also minor color nuances may appear in the leather. Natural marks, scars and insect bites are natural and will appear in Paloma. A thin coat of lacquer gives Paloma some protection and simplifies cleaning, but Paloma does not have the same heavy-duty quality and protection as Batick and Cori. Due to its soft, natural and comfortable feel, Paloma is a very popular choice.
Cori is a corrected, pigment improved and grain embossed upholstery leather. Cori is somewhat thicker and has a larger pebbled grain than Batick. Most of its natural marks are removed. Also some of the Cori colors have a two-tone color effect to liven up the surface. A protective layer of lacquer simplifies cleaning. Cori is a wise choice if you want leather with excellent durability.
Noblesse is the most exclusive leather quality offered by Ekornes. It is a full grain semi-aniline, which means that it is dyed all the way through and has only a thin protective topcoat. This allows the leather to keep the natural softness and lustre that characterizes a first-class furniture leather. A natural material like Noblesse retains its original grain and structure. Minor color nuances and skin blemishes may also occur. Such individual details could lead to slight variations in different spots along the furniture cover. Although the topcoat provides a measure of protection, Noblesse is the most delicate of the leather types that Ekornes uses. It absorbs moisture easily, and is more vulnerable to wear and tear, heat, sunlight, spills and perspiration. Regular maintenance is important to keep its attractive appearance.
