Our designs achieve parity between seemingly contradictory ideas: aspiration and accessibility, sculpture and engineering, elegance and informality, beauty and comfort. Not the least of these ideas is a thoughtful balance of handcraft and industrial processes. We use the latest technologies and newest materials available to custom build products at our facilities in Michigan—and throughout the world. And, because we do not begin building until you make your choices and place an order for a specific product, we make each design especially for you.
You’ll find quality and value in our designs, produced by the craftsmanship, thoughtfulness, and individual human touches of the workers who assemble many pieces by hand. These details make a difference because, as Charles Eames said, “The details are not details. They make the product.”
To give you that little extra push, here’s an amazing set of photos from Herman Miller of their collection.

Originally designed in 1946, the molded plywood chair established a long and successful relationship between Herman Miller and Charles & Ray Eames. With the formation and release of the Herman Miller Collection last year, Herman Miller has taken an elegant classic and updated it for 2013.
The most notable addition to the molded plywood chairs is seen in the upholstered seat and back option. With 6 different wood veneers, 3 leg options and 22 fabric and leather options, this chair is available in over 5000 configurations!
Our showroom floor model is an upholstered Lounge Chair with wood legs. The frame and legs are walnut and the seat and back is upholstered in Divina Melange ’931′.
At Vastu, we don’t like being limited in our choices. It’s why we strive to find manufacturers and products that give you a wide range of personalization options. An option we get asked about often is leather.
Whether you’re creating a custom sofa or headboard or specifying a lounge chair, we carry and represent some of the best and highest quality leathers in the industry. Leather is one of those durable upholstery options that only gets better with time…if it’s done right.
For our custom upholstered pieces from Steven Anthony we provide you with several different leather styles with varying textures and colorways.
Ordering products from Knoll opens up the collection of Spinneybeck leathers which contains hundreds of different options from sealed leathers to sueded varieties. Spinneybeck began as a Canadian company from Ontario that later moved its headquarters to New York state and continues to be a North American leader and supplier of upholstery leather.
**Fun Fact: ”Spinney,” the Old English word for woods, represents tannin, the ancient ingredient derived from wood bark, still used in leathermaking. “Beck,” the Viking word for brook, or stream, is the water component of leathermaking. Beck was given to the English language by the Vikings who overran the British Isles centuries ago.**
Companies like Herman Miller rely on their own private label leathers, as well as those from well-known leather manufacturer Edelman Leather. Edelman, with showrooms all over the US and representatives around the world, specializes in custom coloring, hand finishes and their line consists of more than 750 color ways and over 75 different types of leathers, all of which are GREENGUARD indoor air quality certified.
And last but not least, we have leathers from Cortina Leathers. Family-owned by a mother/daughter team, Cortina imports fine Italian leathers for the architectural, interior design and commercial markets in the Americas and all over the world. With over 50 different styles, Cortina produces high-quality and even has extensive custom capabilities that range from simple custom color to complex leathers involving multiple processes, including embossments, transfer prints, laser cutting and tipping.
Whether you’re looking for pieces for Living & Lounge, Dining & Meeting, Working & Storage or even Outdoor Herman Miller (and the Herman Miller Collection) has something for everyone.
During the last days of the sale we’re open Saturday, 11am-7pm | Sunday, 12pm-5pm | Monday 11am-7pm.
Designed in the mid-1950s by George Nelson, the Nelson Pedestal Stool is the perfect example of elegant versatility. With a beautiful sculptural base and upholstered seat, this small (it’s only 15″ diameter and 19.5″ high) yet functional stool work well in casual living spaces where you may need multiple seats as well as smaller spaces such as foyers or walk-in closets.
With four base finishes and a large selection of upholstery options, you can customize this stool to match your personality and design aesthetic.
One of the more popular “lines” from the Herman Miller Collection is Ray and Charles Eames’s Molded Plywood Chairs. They come with a great story of creativity, innovation and what great teamwork can really bring to the world of furniture design. Well, Herman Miller has taken their beautiful designs and updated them with the option of upholstery.
That’s right, starting on November 5th as part of the Herman Miller Collection you could and can order the Molded Plywood Dining Chairs and the Molded Plywood Lounge Chairs with an upholstered seat and back. They’ve started with a varied offering of upholstery that give you even more personalization options (on top of wood veneer choices, and leg options).
All configurations of the Eames Molded Plywood Chairs are included in the Herman Miller Holiday Sale and qualify for 15% off through December 10th, 2012.
