Paolo Buffa Armchairs in Walnut and Cane


Paolo Buffa, pair of armchairs, walnut and wicker, Italy, 1950s. This pair of wide, robust armchairs are made of wood and cane. The aesthetics of this set is natural and organic. The set features strong features that are quintessential for Buffa, namely the open space in the armrests, the bent end of the armrests and the slatted, sculptural back. The chairs are well executed and can be used in both a modern interior or traditional environment thanks to the combination of natural materials and simplistic yet refined design. Comes with cushions upholstered with floral fabric, if you wish to reupholster this set please ask one of our advisors for more information about the options that our in house upholstery studio can offer you. Paolo Buffa (1903-1970) was a student of Gio Ponti, and an early collaborator with A. Cassi Ramelli. Buffa was predominantly a furniture and interior designer, and was for years considered as one of the most important of Milan. Buffa managed many interior and architectural projects, including the designs for the Royal Palace of King of Albania (1940), the furnishings of some of the interiors of the cruise liner Leonardo Da Vinci (1950s), and the Royal Yacht Mahroussa of King Farouk of Egypt (1951-1952). Comes with a "Certificate of Authenticity" of the Paolo Buffa archive.
