Cashmere wool fiber is obtained from “Cashmere goats.” Historically, fine-haired Cashmere goats have been called Capra hircus laniger, as if they were a subspecies of the domestic goat Capra Hircus. Cashmere goats produce a double fleece that consists of a fine, soft undercoat or under-down of hair mingled with a straighter and much coarser outer coating of hair called Guard Hair. For the fine under-down to be sold and processed further, it must be de-haired. De-hairing is a mechanical process that separates the coarse hairs from the fine hair. After this separating process the resulting premium “cashmere” is ready to be dyed and converted into yarn.
Genuine Imported Leathers
In order to distinguish Rove's line of genuine imported full leathers from generic leathers offered elsewhere that make similar claims of quality, we highly encourage you to request free swatches from each store and compare them side by side!
We are confident you will see the difference our quality makes. Rove products are designed to last for years thus it is only fitting that great attention is owed to the material and craftsmanship of each piece.
Florence Knoll gained much of her design prowess while studying under other pioneering modern designers such as Mies van der Rohe. Her designs are noticeably influenced by this education, however they remain at all times recognizable as creations from the mind of Florence Knoll.
One such design is the Florence Knoll Loveseat. The sleek silhouette serves to encompass an inherently comfortable and wide seat with high raised armrests. The geometric structure and deep-seated buttons immediately conjure up images of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe’s Barcelona Chair, in what can only be a complimentary comparison.
Florence Knoll Florence Knoll Bassett (born May 24, 1917) is an American architect and furniture designer who studied under Mies van der Rohe and Eliel Saarinen. She was born in Saginaw, Michigan as Florence Schust and is known in familiar circles simply as "Shu".She graduated from Kingswood School at the Cranbrook Academy of Art in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan in 1934. She briefly worked with leaders of the Bauhaus movement, including Walter Gropius, Marcel Breuer and Wallace K. Harrison. In 1938, Hans G. Knoll founded his furniture company by that name in New York. In 1943, Florence Schust convinced Hans she could help bring in business to his company even in America''s wartime economy by expanding into interior design by working with architects. With her architectural background and design flair, she succeeded. They married in 1946, she became a full business partner and together they founded Knoll Associates. A new furniture factory was established in Pennsylvania and dealers in Knoll''s furniture were carefully added over the next several years. Florence Knoll felt architects should contribute their design ability to furniture as well. Some of these furniture designs would become design icons of the 20th century and have remained in the Knoll line for decades due to their timeless design. When Hans Knoll died in a car accident in 1955, Florence Knoll took over operation of the company. Florence Knoll herself designed chairs, sofas, tables and casegoods during the 1950s that remain in the Knoll line to this day. In 1958 she married Harry Hood Bassett. Her American interpretation of minimalist, rationalist design theories is clearly evident in Knoll''s storage pieces. She mixed woods and metals to great effect and added laminates as they became popular. Dressers and desks are all square in design but never lack for quality. Hanging cabinets have glass shelves, sliding doors and drop down fronts that can be used as bars. As an architect, Knoll''s most famous creations are the Connecticut General Life Insurance building in Bloomfield, Connecticut and the interior of the CBS Building in New York City. In the 1950''s Florence Knoll''s work was often displayed at the Museum of Modern Art''s "Good Design" exhibits. Although Knoll did a great deal of residential work, the International Style she worked in was specially in successful corporate offices. Knoll''s vision for the new office was clean and uncluttered, and the corporate boom of the 1960''s provided the perfect opportunity for her to change the way people looked at work in their offices. Her open plan layouts created clean, uncluttered spaces a perfect venue for her furniture. Companies like H. J. Heinz, CBS, and Connecticut General Life Insurance all embraced this new way of organizing business space. Knoll retired as Knoll president in 1960, but remained with the company as the director of design until 1965 when she retired completely
