Poltrone Frau has reissued its splendid Chester Line sofa, lighter and updated to accommodate the changing needs of contemporary living, but still with all of the features that made it an icon.
This sofa is a symbol of the luxury artisan craftsmanship of Renzo Frau, who presented it in 1912 as a classic sculptural sofa. It is still a centrepiece in many living rooms. Today, the Chester Line series also includes a chaise longue, armless chairs, an ottoman, two end corner sofas and two curved sofas.
Compared to the model from the early 1900s, the historical capitonné tufted upholstery has been maintained on the backrest but not on the seat to make it more comfortable. The metal feet are almost invisible to focus all attention on the indisputable beauty of the sofa, which is supported by a solid wood structure.
