On offer in very good condition (minimal signs of wear): vintage Poltrona Frau furniture.

Gorgeous and timeless design, very rare edition from the 1970s in deep dark brown (nearly black) Pelle Frau leather with great patina. This very supple leather type of the highest quality will only become more beautiful over the years, if treated properly.

One owner.

Three-seater (225 cm) - two-seater (185 cm) - armchair (110 cm) Loose seat cushions, removable covers filled with goose down, with air holes that make the cushion return to their original shape.

The shapes of the hand-quilted back and armrests emanate a feeling of richness. A typical Poltrona Frau product in which the craftsmanship of the upholsterers is reflected.

The suspension is based on double conical steel springs. These are connected by hand to a supporting structure of solid beech wood. The springs are fixated by hand and stitched to a jute weave. The base for the suspension of the seat is a protective coating of vulcanised horsehair. Horsehair is also used for the padding of the back and armrest, among other things. The seat cushions are padded with goose down.

From Ferraris to the EU Parliament - many of the most exclusive places in the world offer leather seating by the leather workers from Tolentino, Poltrona Frau.
