VANITY FAIR + NEW DEAL
Vanity Fair is a replica of the celebrated 904 model that was part of Poltrona Frau’s catalogue in 1903 and became an archetype after which modern armchairs have been patterned ever since. It is known the world over for its typical rounded shape and the rows of leather-covered nails that add the finishing touch to the seatback and arms. The padding uses both hand-fashioned vegetal horsehair and rubberised horsehair, the seat cushion is filled with goose down. The springing of the seat, back and arms is by means of biconic steel springs, tied manually and rested on jute belts.
New Deal: a great classic in a re-edition of the no. 904 model from 1930. The frame is in seasoned beech-wood. Springiness is created with eight-way steel springs supported on jute webbing. The padding in the seat and backrest is in rubberised horsehair. The armrests are padded with vegetable horsehair and the seat cushion is made with goose down. Upholstery is in Pelle Frau® leather from the Color System, Heritage leather or Soul leather.
