LEYA COUNTER STOOL HIGH By Freifrau
Sled base leather chair with footrest
Birgit Hoffman and Christoph Kahleyss design put the barstool back on the map. It´s the end of an era of uncomfortable barstools just used to have a quick seat.
The elegant, firmly upholstered outer shell reveals its heavenly soft seating. Fabric and colour do the rest to make this Leya model not just a unique designer piece but giving the barstool a new meaning in the world of seating furniture.
At the beginning, there was a very simple chair – without armrests, but with an ingenious idea. Why not take a modern minimalist form, but combine it with extra-soft upholstery? The result was a compact, almost delicate chair that is far more comfortable than its clear, pure lines might suggest at first sight: Leya. Rewarded with astonishing success, the designers have since successively applied the same concept to various other types of seating - the Leya family now consists of more than twenty variants, from models with armrests through to lounge chairs and bar stools and the Leya wingback couch with its lavish Chesterfield upholstery.
