|Tags: Barbara Barry, Baker, Quarry Accent Table, Bracelet Chair|
A simple yet elegant arrangement featuring Barbara Barry’s Bracelet Chair and Quarry Accent Table. Pair complementary tones together, the key is “less is more”.
The bracelet chair, designed by Barbara Barry is an elegant expression of home as a serene retreat; a place where light, space, timeless forms and muted tones unite to create a quiet, calm, fresh and uncluttered interior.
As if chiseled from stone, the Quarry accent table is the perfect modern counterpoint to a single chair or sofa. Also designed by Barbara Barry, this wonderful small statement catches light as it reflects from each surface. It is transformed by each finish to complement a more modern or formal setting.

|This week's new arrivals - Poltrona Frau Dezza armchair designed by Gio Ponti in 1965.
A light-weight and adaptable armchair, that has accurately been reproduced in a refined re-edition that enhances its formal beauty and stylistic uniqueness. The feet are available in ash-wood painted white or black with open-pore paint.
The most attractive part is the cushions which are made from Cavillino 'Ponyskin' - a haired hide featuring distinct brown, black and white natural patterns.
An architect, a designer and an artist, Gio Ponti (Milano 1891-1979) graduated in Milan in 1921 and initially entered into partnership with Emilio Lancia and Mino Fiocchi from 1927 to 1933. In 1957 he designed the super-celebrated Superleggera chair for Cassina, the crowning achievement of a long and fruitful working association.

Mantò, design Poltrona Frau R&D
As enveloping as a cape. Naturally elegant. The Poltrona Frau haute couture sofa.
Like a big, enveloping, and highly treasured cape. Slightly padded. Comfortable and tactile. This is Mantò. The new sofa by Poltrona Frau speaks the language of haute couture. The natural elegance of the piece stems from the masterful tailoring that goes into the handling of all materials. The piece is available in leather or fabric, according to taste, and all surfaces are designed and executed exclusively by hand. The exterior of the sofa is fashioned like a cape, completely removable, while a series of impeccably executed pleats create a refined, wavy pattern on the surface at the rear of the cape-cover. In this detailing, one can sense the artisan’s touch and the tailored execution that makes every piece unique.
By interpreting the sofa in a modern, versatile and customisable way, Mantò aims to introduce a new generation to Poltrona Frau’s legacy of incomparable quality. Craftsmanship, design and unsurpassed materials find a new and balanced synthesis in Mantò. The rounded lines of the back and armrests recall elements found throughout the history of the brand, but are cleaner and sharper here. With Mantò, Poltrona Frau harks back to its traditional past, yet reinterprets it, providing a contemporary spin.
The sofa frame is crafted from beech and poplar plywood and the padding in polyurethane foam and polyester wadding. Elastic belts are used as the seat’s springs. Covered in Pelle Frau® leather from the Color System, Heritage or Soul. Cushions and cape, completely removable, are also available with a fabric cover. Feet in solid ash in smoked or wengé dyed shades.
The Mantò project comprises a two-seater sofa, a two-seater large sofa, a three-seater and a dormeuse.
The following is needed to produce a Mantò sofa:
22 m² Pelle Frau® leather
400 m yarn
80 m of stitching
30 kg solid beech wood
5 kg solid poplar
22 hours of labour

Settle into Rapunzel and let a story emerge from beneath the plush wool braids or escape from your castle to the outdoors with our exterior version.
Hand toiled upholstered foam tubes curve over a steel frame on this simple yet elegant armchair - seat and back cushion are covered in fine wool creating a soft sumptuous feel.
Evocative of a forest canopy, the exquisite details of the sharply angled steel base, like interlockng branches, compliment the inherent beauty and curve of the natural oak tabletop.
In both the 'Tria' coffee and end table, the base and top are available in a variety of finishes, and the tops of the end tables can additionally be effortlessly removed to serve as a tray.
