Design/ origin- Designer & manufacturer world renowned in the innovative designer furniture industry.
This is as Italian as it gets, although just shy of the Memphis period (1980-1987), this sofa was designed in 1990 and is most certainly Milano Memphis!
Large, over-sized cushions, post contrasting metal legs with a colour that doesn't fail to get attention.
2/3 person sofa. A very comfortable piece to relax in, kick off your shoes and lay back. With the rear cushions positionable, both side cushions can be gathered to form extra head support.
The design works perfectly as a central room piece as it looks great from very angle. The outside leather is corrugated, running vertically and there is a lip/ shelf from the side arms following through all to the rear. Heavily top stitched and edged in black. This is one of the most notable features of this design.
Poltrona Frau marker's stamps can be found as an embossed logo on the rear, underside on a metal plaque and under the side cushions in a patterned black fabric.
Condition- Overall condition is great for it's age. All defects have been photographed. There is the usual wear and tear as expected. However this item presents very well.
The sofa however does have one scratch on one cushion centrally. It has not penetrated through the leather and has been treated and colour matched.
There is some very minor discolouration and some blemishes/marks on the leather. See pictures.
Leather has been conditioned and cleaned. There are some blemished to the gun metal legs but they're not that noticeable.
