Not All Chairs Are Created Equal

Comparing our SOHO line to other, cheaper versions

Starting with the Whole Chair

Unlike our competitors who often buy their chairs in lots from a congolomerate trading company, we work directly with our manufacturers, visiting our factories multiple times a year to ensure the highest quality chairs are being produced.

Heat-Embossed Ribbing

Not Stitched

Cheaper chair versions use stitched ribbing, which becomes worn and frayed within a couple years. At Laura, we heat emboss our seats, which not only creates a more refined look, but also provides better air flow.

Modern, Aluminum Arms

We only use aluminum for our arms (try the magnet test!) and shape them to be ultra-thin for a modern, refined aesthetic.

A Low-Profile Mechanism

Every part matters, including the undercarriage. So while all chairs should have height and back adjustments, we uniquely make ours as clean and unobtrusive as possible.

Full Metal Hoods

Even our wheel hoods are fully metal with polished chrome. We believe that every part matters, including the wheels.

“The average person sits more than they sleep, so it makes sense to invest in a chair where every last part has been carefully chosen to be the best.”
