Mid Century murky corporate history in nice bright colors! A salesman sample of unearthly colors! Maybe when someone writes the "history of mid-century modern" the history of Masland Vinyl will make sense, but today it's just lawsuit after lawsuit and merger after buyout after who knows what. Looks like they abandoned the trademark for Duraleather after spending a fortune to proove it was leather...I guess. Well, it wasn't. I do know, having spent the day at an outdoor antique show...they should make duct tape in every one of these colors so repairs in the "Monitor Quality" upholstery would be easier to achieve. Some kid must have stabbed every damn chair he ever sat in with a fork.
I'm tired of telling stories, let's just look at the pretty pictures. They got sued...they changed hands...end of story.
