Dating to the mid part of the 20th century, circa 1960s, this is an original pair of chairs by maker Poltrona Frau. The Sardinian born designer was based in Italy, and specialised in leather seating for interior and automotive applications. Although we are unsure of the exact purpose of these particular pieces, the quality is what resonates with us. The substantial quality of the build and the leather, makes these a desirable pair of chairs!
The chairs are made really well with a chrome and steel frame and finished in a Blue leather. With the above in mind, the chairs are ‘weighty’, yet this ensures when seated they are structurally strong and functional. For us, these are a ‘posh’ pair of chairs and are elegant on the eye. Today the chairs could form alternative office seats or of course they could easily settle straight into a retail environment. The chairs have a designer feel about them, complemented with a splattering of surface wear and tear, this is a pair of functional and beautiful chairs…
We are offering these pieces in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is some natural wear and tear. There are some surface scuffs and scars to the leather surface and some abrasions on the chrome frame. They are a little tatty in places and the metal has some small rusty areas. The leather is marked in areas, yet not broken, therefore offering an authentic and used look. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections…
