armchairs & sofa


Chester, Poltrona Frau’s icon par excellence, and its contemporary version, the Chester Line.With a stately, sculpturesque, representative aura, and an open architecture, you can freely configure the line’s furniture for a more casual social setting. Chester Line maintains the impeccable elegance and iconic workings of its predecessor: the capitonné, stitching with buttons, and spiral on the armrest. But in updating itself to contemporary habits and ways of living the home, it lightens up, breaks up and multiplies in its combinations. It is now a system offering five different elements: chaise longue and armchair, both with armrests, poufs, and two corner sofas.The capitonné was kept on the backrest, precious and recognisable, but disappears from the sofa base. The emphasis on tradition comes with a delicate job of removing details, in a quest for a modern lightness accentuated by the blade-shaped, nearly invisible metallic feet.Unlike the historic model, the two-seater sofa has just one just one, much larger cosy cushion, in harmony with the atmosphere of a contemporary living room. The elements without an armrest and backrest let you add accessories that enrich the functions of the various configurations.
