1919 Armchair

The 1919 Armchair is one of Poltrona Frau's most iconic designs, originally custom-crafted in the year of its namesake for the Duke of Pistoia. Commanding yet quirky, it updated the classic Bergère model with Frau’s characteristic capitonné and a stylish tray, designed to catch runaway ash from the Duke’s cigars.

Product Description

The 1919 Armchair was where it all started for Poltrona Frau. While Renzo Frau had been diligently working on a new language of leather ever since the turn of the century, 1919 marked the company's very first regal commission. All sumptuous details and hand-stitched capitonné, it updated the Bergere model with new rigour and flair, gaining new personality thanks to the addition of an optional cigar tray. Today, it's available in Poltrona Frau's joyful ColourSphere leathers, and conveys just as much as majesty and charm as it did back then.

Materials & Finishes

Our furniture looks good from every angle. Peruse the details here…

Structure and Padding: The stately 1919 armchair features a seasoned beach support structure. It's seat, backrest and armrests are sprung by means of hand-tied double cone steel springs which rest gently on jute belts. The seat padding is crafted from ruberrised horsehair, whereas the backrest and armrests are stuffed with hand-shaped vegetable horsehair. The seat cushion is further padded with goose down for additional comfort. 

Upholstery and FinishesThe backrest of this beloved design is sticthed by hand to create the capitonné effect. A row of leather-upholstered nails further embellishes the back. The optional plate-holder is available in wax-treated Canaletto walnut (optional). The chair is available online in Poltrona Frau's luxurious ColourSphere leather. More on this below...
