The Vanity Fair Armchair is one of Poltrona Frau's leather emblems. It was first put into production in 1930, following Renzo Frau's tragic in WWI. It heralded the emergence of a new style of armchair — voluptuous, ornate and perfectly placed to accommodate the demands of modern life. Over the years its curvaceous form has become a template for comfortable lounging, although none have come close to the careful craftsmanship of the master leatherworkers at Poltrona Frau.
