Vanity Fair XC Armchair in Genuine Leather Pelle SC 188 Viridiana Green

$7,050 per item


The company’s most iconic product, the Vanity Fair armchair encapsulates all of the values of timeless elegance, quality materials and consummate craftsmanship that have made the Poltrona Frau brand a renowned name over the years. Officially called “model 904” but known, since 1984, as Vanity Fair, this seat has become one of the universal icons of Italian design. The project, which first went into production in 1930, has been revamped by the Poltrona Frau Style & Design Centre on the basis of designs that Renzo Frau left his wife, Savina. To mark the 90th anniversary of the Vanity Fair armchair, the company asked designer Roberto Lazzeroni to revisit it and adjust its proportions to make it even more comfortable and welcoming. The supporting structure of the Vanity Fair XC armchair is made from solid seasoned beech. The padding uses both hand-shaped vegetable horsehair and rubberised horsehair and the seat cushion is in goose down with a polyurethane foam insert to help maintain its form over time. The seat, backrest and armrest spring system consists of hand-tied steel biconical springs attached to jute belts. A row of leather-covered pins finishes the back and sides of the armchair. The upholstery is available in Pelle Frau® leather or fabric. A plate with gunmetal grey or gold finish bearing the Poltrona Frau® logo is attached to the back of the frame.
