Poltrona Frau ‘Chester One’ Chesterfield Sofa by Renzo Frau

Italy, 1912

Poltrona Frau ‘Chester One’ Chesterfield Sofa in good condition. Designed by Renzo Frau in 1912. Leather SC Oxblood. Wooden feet. Marked ‘Poltrona Frau’ Chester One evokes the classical armchair model of King Edward’s times, which Renzo Frau produced for Poltrona Frau’s first catalogue in 1912, drawing inspiration from the sofas and armchairs that populated the English clubs and country houses of the time. It is distinguished by the pleats decorating the arms and the rich capitonné treated upholstery, produced entirely by hand, that reflects the Masterly techniques of the craftsmen responsible for its upholstery. Springing is by means of biconic steel springs, applied manually onto a bearing structure of seasoned Beech wood. The padding of the seat uses rubberised horsehair, while the back and arms are filled with hand-fashioned vegetal horsehair. The seat cushion is stuffed with goosedown.
