CalligarisCalligaris is contemporary Italian home design. Founded by Antonio Calligaris in 1923, this family-run company fuses its roots in wood craftsmanship - the trade that launched their first chairs decades ago. From that artisan birthplace of tradition, style and quality, Calligaris has traveled a long road leading to the use of the most innovative technologies available and expanding to new mediums - from plastics and glass to metal, textiles and leather. Today, the Calligaris range of distinctive collections includes chairs and stools, dining and occasional tables and bedroom-lighting furnishings. Calligaris works with care, passion and creativity to bring into being the best of Italian design, making high quality products at an accessible price. Calligaris products are designed for everyday use with an eye to satisfying the living needs of today's homes. The company produces intelligent, functional products that are highly affordable, user-friendly and can adapt to differing styles. Designs stem from the analysis of form and function, from experimentation in construction and materials, and by continuous innovation. An ongoing collaboration with leading designers, new talents and an in-house R&D team allows the company to develop solutions answering the distinctive and changing needs of modern home and work spaces. Calligaris holds quality of material and design among the most important of its company values. Their product quality is the result of a careful selection of materials and direct supervision of processes carried out by suppliers. In 2006, Calligaris obtained the prestigious Forest certification from the Forest Stewardship Council. And in 1997 they became one of the first Italian furnishing companies to obtain ISO 9001 quality certification for its entire organization and production system. That's Calligaris. Beautiful yet practical, original yet affordable and backed by a thorough commitment to quality.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Atomic R. from Beautifully designed and comfortable chair. The L'Eau Chair arrived quickly. The 2 boxes showed signs of wear from shipping, but the product was in perfect condition. The seat was easily mounted to the legs. The chair is quite beautiful. The water ripple pattern is more striking in person than on the website. I ordered the clear version. I was surprised by the way the chair picks up the colors of the multicolored rug underneath and seems to change when viewed from different angles. Though lightweight, the chair does seem sturdy. It was purchased just a few weeks ago, so I cannot comment on durability. Overall, very satisfied.

Rated 3 out of 5 by S. B. from Beautiful, but scratches easily. The chairs are absolutely gorgeous. The material, which is technopolymer, gives a little so as to make a very comfortable seat, but also scratches very easily. Be very careful when cleaning. Use only a very soft rag, no paper towels. I would have given one more star, but my experience trying to have the chairs delivered without damage was trying, at best. If you purchase this set, try to make sure they are sent with proper packaging, and through a reputable shipper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Comfortable, beautiful chairs. The chairs have a slight blue cast even though they are clear. The "water" look on the chairs give them a unique look that is quite pleasing. Goes beautifully with our glass table. A great addition to our new kitchen. Considering adding on the matching barstools.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous from Unique! After adding a glass tile backsplash in our kitchen, we decided that we needed to update our chairs and counter stools. I had trouble finding modern seating in local stores, so I finally decided to order the L'Eau chairs and counter stools online from YLiving. It took about a month to receive them, but I absolutely love the look. I ordered the grey with polished legs. Simple, modern, unique and just what we wanted.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Antonio R. from Very unique, contemporary, comfortable as well as good looking. The L'Eau Chair arrived quickly and the product was in perfect condition. The seat was easily mounted to the legs. The chairs are beautiful! I ordered 6 chairs, two of each color. Though lightweight, the chairs do seem sturdy. Couldn't find a better price anywhere. Very pleased with the quality, delivery and style.

Rated 5 out of 5 by L.Y. from Great chair Great chair, easy assembly, but shipping is clearly a problem as mentioned by others. One of the first two arrived with scratching of the acrylic, but was replaced with a phone call within a week. Very happy to have both now--transparent looks great in almost any setting.

L'Eau Chair is rated out of 5 by 11.
Can you make a L'eau chair on a counter stool base? I like the higher back but need counter stools.
The L'eau is only available as the counter height with the lower back. Although that is a good idea, the manufacturer only makes the counter stool with the lower back (link below). http://www.yliving.com/calligaris-leau-counter-stool.html If you have additional questions, we are happy to help!
