B & B Italia

More Information

Hello Friends, and welcome to another unmissable offering from Lord Browns Furniture, the UK’s premier resource for fine Sofas and Chairs.

On offer on this occasion is a rare, superb identical-pair of  “Grande Papilio” swivel-armchairs, from the world renown Italian furniture house, B&B Italia.

As you will no doubt be aware by your interest in this Naoto Fukusawa masterpiece, B&B Italia pieces are the epitome of contemporary European furniture design, are of peerless quality, and exhibit detailing and execution of an unrivalled standard.

In a world of temporary pleasures, B&B Italia create beautiful furniture that remains a joy forever.

Dressed in the most stunning and tactile high-grade “Ego” wool fabric-option in striking, vibrant Bordeaux Red. This fabric is easily recognised as being of peerless quality with it being both as robust and hard-wearing as rhino skin, whilst its softness and texture is simply divine to the touch.

This pair is in gorgeous, immaculately-maintained condition, having seen light, infrequent use in its previous home, and is entirely free from fault, flaw or damage. Their handsome order reflects the TLC and considerate use afforded them in the past, but cannot be considered truly-perfect due to the presence of a small number of light (and I mean light) superficial marks to the seat and backrest but, this modest issue aside, are as well-presented as you could ever hope to find.

For the avoidance of doubt, please view the numerous images provided to confirm the great condition and deeply-desirable appearance of this seating-icon.

In its current state, this pair would easily meet the requirements of all but the most-particular of buyers and, for someone looking for a suite of high-design to position at the heart of their room, it is truly heaven sent! This superb pair of armchairs possesses all the beauty and majesty you would hope for from some of the finest contemporary furniture money can buy.

Dimensions-wise, each Papilio’s measurements are H-102cm, W-83cm and D-87cm, and the breathtaking seating position this iconic modern-design creates is enhanced by the use of sumptuously comfortable, generously-upholstered, composite-filled back and seat cushioning, which leaves you powerless to resist its charms. Not only does this chair possess an aesthetic to die for, but it is so comfortable too!

Costing in excess of £6600 when new, this piece represents spectacular value for money, and we have no doubt it will serve and delight its new owner for many years to come.

Delivery of this piece to most UK mainland addresses will cost £135, and can be organised on behalf of the winning bidder upon request using one of our hand-picked panel of specialist, fully-insured independent furniture couriers.
