The Opera Dining Chair

This comfortable side, dining or desk chair is part of Soane’s family of metal and leather furniture. The frame is manufactured in solid steel by Dorset engineers and upholstered in London using the client’s choice of hand-stitched Soane in-house Leathers. Elegant curved brass brackets are added, together with brass ‘socks’ and caps. The chair is offered in Polished or Antique Brass with the option of alternative Soane standard Metal Finishes.

The upholstery of this design is made using natural materials made from layers of graphite latex, organic coconut coir and organic British wool, which are naturally breathable, naturally fire retardant and offers sublimely soft padding.
