Inspiration for the Suzie Wong bed comes from romantic comedy films in the fifties and, even further back, sumptuous alcoves from the 1700s. Roberto Lazzeroni gives us a light, feminine, almost twee version. The reference model is the classic boat bed, streamlined in a very modern makeover. It stands clear of the floor, lightly balanced on stiletto-heel tapered feet, covered in leather with brass caps. Even more sophisticated is the version with the headboard wrapped in quilted leather, embroidered with refined geometric stitching, a subtle reminder of the details typical of tailored and leather goods. The headboard frame is in solid beech wood e birch plywood, padded with polyurethane foam. The two shaped sides are in moulded polyurethane foam. Side panels in tulipier wood, with light polyurethane foam padding. Footboard in poplar multilayer the two corners in moulded polyurethane foam. Suzie Wong is upholstered in Pelle Frau® leather
The irregular but symmetrical shape of the headboard characterises Dream View by Roberto Lazzeroni, making this piece modern but inspired to styles of the past. The bed, consisting of a light and essential structure but with net shapes, is completely covered in fabric that can be chosen in the colours present in Lema’s assorted catalogue and contrasts harmoniously with the delicate metal feet.
A sophisticated collection that includes a settee, armchairs, a chaise longue, a bench and a bed. The pieces suggest the memory of traditional furniture types, clearly visible in the large, enveloping back without armrests. The proportions of the tall back counterbalance the solid wood structure with its short legs, just slightly raised off the ground. One particular and very successful piece is the large padded bench with its central backrest, an icon of the collection, of great visual impact, at the center of the hall of a hotel or in the entrance of an elegant residence, perhaps at the foot of a double staircase. The cover in leather or fabric can have grosgrain borders with contrasting or matching colors.
