This spectacular series of contemporary seats was inspired by traditional Ottoman stools. The series includes a low-slung seat with a backrest, an ottoman and a footstool. Each seat is made with soft contours that enhance comfort and add support to the overall structure.
The seats are bordered by a single, unbroken seam that forms a soft edge around the sides. The version with the backrest is shaped by a subtle fold that divides the back from the seat. Each of the designs is available in a selection of fabrics and leather. The seats are subtle enough to blend in with most interiors, yet striking enough to stand out in a contemporary space.

Leather is a natural material. Like most natural materials, it does need some care to ensure its long-lasting appeal year after year. The care and maintenance of leather will always depend on the specific way in which it is used, the conditions of use and how often it is used.
A few simple tips will help preserve the leather’s natural beauty and will make the leather look even more luscious over time:
– Avoid placing the leather in direct sunlight or near heat sources
– Daily cleaning of leather is best done with a dry clean cotton cloth. The cloth can be slightly dampened in lukewarm water if necessary.
– For a deeper cleaning, use the foam from natural soap flakes for housecleaning.
– Avoid soaking the leather with any liquid or allow contact with sharp objects.
– To absorb any spills, use a clean, dry cotton cloth immediately.
– To dust, use a vacuum cleaner with a soft brush.
– Never use detergents, ammonia or varnish.
– If the leather looks dry, wax can be used.
Clean using soap flakes:
Whip a 1/2 decilitre of soap flakes to a litre of hot water.
When the water becomes room temperature, the foam must be applied all over the leather with a soft cloth. Only use the foam and avoid soaking the leather.
When the leather is dry, polish with a soft, dry cotton cloth.
Mattias Stenberg is a Swedish designer and a graduate of the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm. Mattias approaches design from a holistic perspective, relating architectural environments to the human form and making mass-produced objects feel tactile and handcrafted. Since establishing his studio in 2010, Mattias has produced an impressive range of furniture and designs he describes as ‘everyday objects’; yet, the products he creates are anything but. The soft carpets, tactile furniture, smooth glassware and chic lighting Mattias designs have a distinctively industrial aesthetic while being inviting and accessible. This approach is reflected in the range of Ottoman seating Mattias designed for Northern. They, too, resonate with comfort, welcoming and warmth.
