Archibald, leather upholstered armchair designed by Jean-Marie Massaud for Poltrona Frau.
This chair is so appealing. It will make anyone look elegant, yet it oozes comfort… Just by looking at it, I know I’m going to enjoy, not just sitting, but being in it. I’d curl my feet under me and read. I love the tactile quality of the leather – the balance of gentle folds against the taut seat, the quirky flaps on the arms that are “just right.” When I sought out this chair and sat in it, it was everything I thought it would be.
I visited the Poltrona Frau factory in Italy. I learnt a few finishing techniques but, more important to me, it was inspiring to watch highly skilled craftspeople work together with such expertese. Poltrona Frau have showrooms in most major cities worldwide.
