Finest manufacturing quality ! 

Beechwood massive, black stained, refurbished by hand / the seat as well as backrest are upholstered with cream leather.
A special feature is this armchair's half-round / semi-circular form type causing most elegant appearance:
The backside of backrest is made, too, of beech wood / black stained. - The only (slight) difference with Hoffmann's design is the fact that there aren't any brass rivets attached to backrest's backside, but a wooden band is visible.
