i. Standard fabric and finish is Maharam Mineral Mink – Colour Code 004. It is understood that this fabric can be a driver of cost, and we are willing to consider alternatives.

ii. Benches must be capable of having 0.5” Outside Diameter hairpin legs mounted to them. These legs are powder coated with Tiger Drylac Silver Matte – finish code 49/50/90500.
