Allergical as in itch? Then the color/fix might have too many chemical leftovers in the chair.

Have you compared the fabric content between the tobacco suede and the other colors? Might be something in the fabric, or as rinqreation says a chemical leftover.

thanks for your comments nevertheless what I meant is I can't stand the view of a barcelona chair any longer, apart the ones upholstered in suede havana or tobacco

I must stand up against "Arco" Floor Lamp insult ! :))Since I moved to NA continent I haven't had a chance to have ceiling light in the living room. Or to see one somewhere else.
Always some floor lamps,table lamps ,wall lamps...You get tired once you start turning them on and you never get nicely lit room. I hate sitting in semi -dark rooms
Arco lamp saved my life! :))

hollybar, that website is hysterical... and most of it, I have to admit I am also in agreement with that they are things that are overdone and have become cliched.

Hey, ringreation - you leave our uggs alone - they are almost our national symbol!!! We don't have snow, just cold feet and they are actually very good in summer, they are surprisingly cool to wear then :)
