Not sure as the owner had these from a previous home and I believe recovered them. You might look at Knoll or similar classic modernist furniture manufactures for something similar. Good luck!

Love this wall! It is amazing and I like how it continues outside. You can get this look with our 8 foot by 6 inch board form tile and a smooth concrete hearth. Our board form tile is easily installed by any tile setter, when installed with the "squish" in between each tile it will give you the poured in place look. The attached photo is of a feature wall using our board form tile. We ship worldwide, feel free to contact me for more information.

Kendle Design Collaborative The main material is rammed earth, it's 3' thick with 12" minimum behind fireplace. I have seen an installation of a 4" decorative rammed earth finish applied in a restaurant but finding someone who can do his is likely challenging. A similar appearance might be achieved through concrete, some color and varying sizes of aggregate poured in uneven lifts. Worth experimenting with a sample before getting committed. As for the fireplace itself it is a 1/4" custom made steel box and flu, cast into the rammed earth wall. The hearth is a custom made precast concrete supported on steel tubes that are welded to the footing for the rammed earth wall. Hope this is helpful.
