The nitty gritty

  • Overall dimensions: 38”W x 38”D x 31”H
  • Diagonal depth: 29”
  • Seat height: 18”
  • Seat depth w/o back cushion: 26”
  • Frame height: 31”
  • Weight: 84 lbs
  • Box dimensions: 40”W x 40”D x 33”H

Our furniture is hand-made and in many cases quite soft so keep in mind dimensions may vary by an inch or two.
  • Our products undergo rigorous testing by trusted third-party labs and meet or exceed industry safety requirements.

  • Our gliders and swivels exceed all stringent tipping tests, but they're still heavy. Please take care while using them, and place them on a flat, even surface to ensure stability and prevent tip hazards.

  • Swivels and gliders move by design, but please swivel and glide sensibly, and monitor your children to ensure they don’t touch or play with the mechanisms at the base of the chairs.

  • Our entire fabric catalogue consists of the safest materials for your children—all-natural or recycled fabrics—nothing toxic, no flame-retardants, and nothing coated with chemicals or PFAS.

  • All our materials meet or exceed stringent industry chemical and VOC emissions standards.

Tread carefully—spot cleaning isn’t always recommended, and treatment can vary by fabric, color, and stain type.


Natural fabrics: We strongly recommend dry cleaning for regular laundering and stain removal. Machine washing is possible with a bit of mindful care.


Natural fabrics: Vacuum regularly (with an upholstery attachment if you have one).

Olea's seat cushions contain three layers: your choice of loose fill (Feather Down or Poly Fill) at the top and bottom, and a cushy “comfort layer” of high-density foam sandwiched between the fill.

Seat Cushions: 60% foam, 40% loose fill

Back Cushions: 100% loose fill

Our lofty Feather Down is ethically sourced, and our vegan Poly Fill is designed to mimic the familiar fluff of feathers. We mix a small percentage of vegan poly fiber into the Feather Down cushions for a bit of spring. To learn more about our two fill options, check out our post, “Inside scoop: Feather Down vs Poly Fill.

As a rule, the fluffier the cushion, the more upkeep it will require. Our cushions are exceptionally soft, and much of the fill is loose, so periodic fluffing will go a long way.
