Upholstery Curated Amongst The Best

Due to current supply chain disruptions and increased prices, Varier is not offering customization options in North America until further notice.

Computer monitors are not all calibrated equally, and color reproduction on the Internet is not precise. Therefore, it is not possible to guarantee our online colors will portray exactly the color of the actual product. However, we give you as many high-quality pictures as possible to give you the closest realistic rendering. We recommend you look at our products from different devices.
