Design chairs are something like ‘hot stuff’ for interior design aficionados. You know, just name dropping like Eames chair, Wishbone chair, Egg chair, the CH07 or ‘Smiling chair’ by Wegner – just to mention a few. Design lovers get big eyes and phrases of awe and praise cascade out of their mouths. Very normal! But as many things in life, the story has another side too. Most of those highly appraised chairs have a price tag that requires either a hereditary fortune or several years of saving – and then we’ve gotten to one chair!

Leya is the dulcet name of a beautiful chair from the German manufacturer ‘Freifrau’ and designed by Birgit Hoffmann. The design label ‘Freifrau’ was founded in 2012 and is specialized in the design and production of top-notch chairs. Leya is one of their flagship chairs: It is the chair of contrasts, it combines warm and cold materials, hard and soft surfaces, a masculine and feminine touch. The wired base has an industrial touch whereas the soft leather upholstery recalls a lounge feeling. Plus it comes at a very affordable price tag for a design chair. But the best is yet to come!
