Lady, a perfectly identified armchair

When i first saw this amrchair, sitting on the corner of a furniture booth at the most famous International furniture fair in Milan, my words were :"this armchair its gonna be mine!" , and i immediately pictured 4 or 5 places in my home where it would easily rock its way into my mixture of modern antique furniture and decor pieces. This armchair was simple but so stylish and contemporary with a slight feminine touch. That is when i thought that Lady was the perfect name for it, with its sensuality and smoothness reminding me of those classical paintings where female bodies were pictured generous and elegant.
Designed in 1951 by the acclaimed designer Marco Zanuso and manufactured by Arflex, this armchair keeps a retro look but melts perfectly with modern design concepts . Marco Zanuso and Arflex started working together during the IX Triennale of Milano in 1951 and this armchair was their first products. It immediately catched the attention of the people and were awarded Gold medal.
Imagine the thousands of possibilities you can have fun with, by choosing your own material, make a double color choice, or pick on of the manufacturer extensive fabrics collection.

News from the 2010 Milan furniture show: the capital of the showbusiness, fashion and design. This year the 2010 International Furniture Show has brought to our attention a new home concept. With the economy at this stage, people spend more time at home. Therefore the house plays a key role in people's lives . The furniture has evolved as well, being more comfortable and more casual, keeping distance from the minimalistic neutral approach , instead adding colors and textured details to every room. The kitchen is larger and no more separated from the rest of the house...instead it melts with the living area by creating a unique environment where most of the time is spent. Bathrooms have become more technological adding a zen atmosphere and spa complements.

The sofas have softer lines and unconventional designs;

The living room is less conventional, colors play a big role and different materials break down the continuity of the room;

Sidney sofa: when class speaks by itself

The meaning of design. Sometimes we see it clearly sometimes we cannot understand it. Looking at "Sidney", the peak piece from our 2010 new sofas collection, you are immediately overcome by a sense of class, style , lightness and neatless. And you can sense its superior design. Yet so simple, the Sidney sofa has unsurpassable meticolous details which turns into a piece of beautiful home furnishing . You can immediately picture this modern sofa in a wide open urban style Soho loft, an upscale Upper East side brownstone or a redesigned Central park west townhouse. No matter which kind of decor you have to stick to, becuase this couch will look perfectly at ease in any space.
Sidney has a free spirit. The whole structure is lightened up by elegant thin feet which run troughout the sides giving more emphasis to the wide comfortable seat cushions made of polyurethane foam layered up at different densities to secure maximum comfort. The back has a magical function; the back cushions extend outward the back of the sofa and with an easy movement can lifted up and use for upright seating comfort. Each of the mechanisme is light and easy and indipendent from each other. The proportions are balanced and the pieces are manufactured in different sizes to create infinite possibilities. The armrests are smooth and run along the sides up to the back forming beautiful soft curves which are visible and of a great effect when you are standing on the sides of the couch.
Everything is at his place, right where it should be. This sofa looks gorgeous from front to back, from side to side. Available in a two seater(180/200/220 centimeters) or three seater (248 centimeters) it is also customizable in sectional sofas with corner units and chase lounges, or end element with built-in wide ottoman, or with separate open seat-armchairs. Available in a wide selection of gorgeous modern fabrics and absolutely astonishing in its leather version.
