Customizable Tacchini Giulia Lounge Armchair with Ottoman by Gianfranco Frattini

About the Item

A re-edition of the famous model 877 by Gianfranco Frattini, from 1957, named for the wife of Gio Ponti, the designer’s great teacher and mentor. Giulia is Frattini’s modern interpretation of the classic wing-back armchair and is one of the historic examples of Italian-made design. The designer uses clear, pronounced geometric lines to interpret the spacious and deep softness typical of this type of armchair with its high back and lateral headrests. The shell is all one piece with the wing-like armrests and sits on a sleek wood structure. The structural elements are an integral part of the elegant esthetic of the piece, as is the decorative detail of the wood screws, left exposed, to delight the attentive eye. The chair was featured in many of the leading interior decor projects by Frattini throughout the 1960s. Upholstered in leather, faux-leather or fabric, Giulia comes in a vast array of finishes and colors, suited to contemporary settings with a sophisticated vibe. Internal structure: 30 mm thick fir plywood. Padding: Differentiated-density polyurethane foam. Base: Open pore stained solid ashwood. Base can be grey or dark walnut.
