Corde 4 - Grade 1

Constructed from cotton, Corde 4 includes a four-way stretch and a small, modular weave. The result is a dimensionally ribbed surface on the face of the fabric that remains soft to the touch.

Fourtis - Grade 1

Inspired by the Latin word fortis, meaning strong, this fabric is the ultimate ratio of durability and flexibility thanks to a unique weave of two-blended colors, and offering a four-way stretch.

Lotus - Grade 1

This four-way stretch textile is water repellant and easy to clean, making it an ideal textile for healthcare and hospitality environments. Its polyurethane finish with nylon backing boasts a soft texture while offering exceptional durability. It exceeds all standards for contract upholstery and healthcare tests.

Sensuede - Grade 3

Sensuede was developed to be the best and most luxurious engineered suede available. The faux suede's soft touch comes from the use of breathable and wrinkle resistant recycled microfibers that are finer than a human hair but are extra-strong, resulting in a very resilient fabric. This material also was selected because of its environmentally sensitive content and manufacturing process.

Bizon Leather - Grade 1

Bizon is a durable, water-resistant leather suitable for a wide range of applications. The combination of a special retannage and technically-advanced finishing process results in a leather that is not only water-resistant but also practical for applications that require a durable finish.

Cervo Leather - Grade 3

Cervo is chromium tanned and aniline dyed. The unique tannage approximates the rich luxurious suppleness of deer skin. The clarity and depth of the aniline dyes provide a distinct beauty enhancing all the natural characteristics. Cervo is thicker than the other naked leathers in our collection. Specialized milling adds additional character providing a soft pebble grain texture unmatched by any other leather in its class.

    Attractive with ergonomic comfort

    Posted by Valerie M. on Sep 18th 2017

    I love this stool! It's very comfortable and easy to scoot around on without feeling like it will slide out from under me on my hardwood floor. There are 3 height adjustment levers for easy access. The size is perfect for me and my room. The Lotus upholstery in Walnut is rich and not at all slippery. Very good value for the price and great customer service from Human Solution.

    Great for posture, comfort and movement

    Posted by Faith on Nov 19th 2015

    I LOVE this chair! I use it at my office desk. I had a traditional executive chair with all the bells and whistles so I had all the comfort I could want but what I really wanted was a chair that did not force my body to slouch. I am a small-framed and thin person; I wanted a chair that did not swallow me up. The Freedom Pony Saddle Seat solved the problem! And, it is comfortable, stylish, and really does live up to its name: Freedom. It feels great to be without all that fabric and frame all around me and under my arms and legs. It's light in weight, too. Next time I refurnish my breakfast room, I am seriously considering Freedom Pony Saddle Seats instead of traditional kitchen table chairs.

    Pros: Comfortable, flexible, sylish, better for healthfulness.
    Cons: None known at this time.

    Even better than the Saddle Seat

    Posted by Susan Beauchamp on Dec 22nd 2013

    I've had two Humanscale Freedom Saddle seats: one for my office and one for my home office. After the third year of my office moving to a construction jobsite trailer, my 10-year old Saddle Seat really took a beating. Time for replacement and I selected the Pony Saddle Seat. I love it. The seat feels the same even though the seat is smaller.
