Composed of 100% recycled polyester, Squiggle offers an innovative weave structure to create a modern organic wave pattern resembling ripples of water. This environmentally sound textile may be applied either horizontally or vertically to Humanscale seating.

Constructed of plain weave using a blend of nylon, Cordura® and elastic yarn, this textile offers a pleasing texture and extreme durability. Because of the Cordura® content, this four-way stretch woven textile performs to the rigors of the most demanding contract environment.

Developed initially for sportswear, Wave responds to the unique form and production requirements of Humanscale seating. This four-way stretch fabric exceeds all contract interior testing requirements for heavy-duty upholstery.

Water repellent and easy to clean, Lotus is an ideal textile for the healthcare and hospitality environments. Its polyurethane finish with nylon backing boasts a soft texture that is pleasant to the touch while offering exceptional durability.

Bridget Stripe
Composed primarily of renewable merino wool, Bridget Stripe offers a five-color 50-stripe pattern with shifting color sequence that creates an undisrupted movement across the surface of the fabric. Boasting exceptional durability for a wool textile, Bridget Stripe may be applied either horizontally or vertically to Humanscale seating.

Offering style and performance, Sensuede was developed to be the best and most luxurious engineered suede available. The silky feel is the result of recycled microfibers that are breathable, extra-strong, and resistant to most stains and wrinkles.

This Ultraleather textile from Ultrafabrics is environmentally friendly. Wipeable and antimicrobial, and ideally suited to healthcare, hospitality and industrial applications. Made without PVC, Promessa has a pebbled, highly texture finish that will work beautifully in a wide variety of environments.

A lightly corrected, aniline-dyed leather produced from European hides, Vicenza receives a special retannage which enriches the leather and tightens the grain. A breathable protective finish offers durability and comfort.

Casters & Glides   Click For More Info
Depending on where you will use your Saddle Seat, our Smart Designer provides casters that suit your needs. Our selection includes:

Standard Casters:
These are the most popular. 2.25” hard plastic casters that work pretty well on carpet. They won't mark up hard floors or damage them but aren't ideal if used on hard floors.

Hard Floor Casters:
Softer (they have a polyurethane tread), so they get better traction on hard surfaces, and don't make loud noises when rolling around like the harder ones would. Also 2.25” in diameter.

Non-rolling feet for fixed location use. This option is NOT a wheel, but rather a foot like on a side chair.
Locking Casters:
2.25” hard double-wheel casters lock when someone is sitting in the chair.
