Of all the brands in the furniture industry, Walter Knoll has one of the longest and most illustrious histories. First set up during the 1800s, Walter Knoll was established by Wilhelm Knoll. Originally, the brand’s focus was on high quality leather chairs, however over the many decades which followed the brand’s style changed and developed, embracing more designs and types of furniture.

The evolution of Walter Knoll

The 1920s saw a move towards more unusual designs and structures, eschewing traditional shapes and materials for more contemporary tubular steel, wood and aluminium bases and legs which brought a stylish look that was perfect for that era. Upright backs were also rejected in favour of more comfortable, relaxed positions, and the Walter Knoll brand became associated with both elegance and comfort.

After the Second World War, Walter Knoll became even more of a trend setter, establishing the bucket chair firmly in the conscious of the world as an iconic piece of furniture, and their range expanded to include office furniture and sofas – many of which are still iconic and desirable in the homes of today.

Exquisite craftsmanship and attention to detail are hallmarks of the brand, with leather upholstery very much in evidence reflecting the earliest origins of the manufacturer. The stitching is exquisite and remains a classic feature of the brand.

When it comes to shape, simplicity is key, with long and low designs being especially prominent. The leather comes in a range of colours, from classic browns to striking blues but the overall effect is one of quality and elegance.
