RRP £4750 – Sublime Poltrona Frau “Archibald” Armchair in Special-Order “Century Talco” Grey Leather




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 “Archibald” Armchair from the world renown Italian furniture house, Poltrona Frau.

As you will no doubt be aware by your interest in this Jean Marie Massaud masterpiece, Poltrona Frau 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, Poltrona Frau create beautiful furniture that remains a joy forever.

Dressed in the most stunning and tactile high-grade “Pelle Frau Century” leather fabric option in their flexible, elegant “Talco” colourway, and with Gunmetal framework. Being Poltrona Frau’s premium leather option, the hide is easily recognised as being of peerless quality being as robust and hard-wearing as rhino skin, whilst its softness and texture is simply divine to the touch.

This Archibald is in superb, beautifully-maintained condition, having seen light, infrequent use in its previous home, and is entirely free from fault, flaw or damage. Its handsome order reflects the TLC and considerate-use afforded it in the past and, aside from some light signs of use on the armrests and seat, and the odd light, superficial mark to the leather and gunmetal frame, it is as well-presented as it is gorgeous.

For the avoidance of doubt, please view the numerous images provided to confirm its superb condition and appearance. A genuine thing of beauty.

In its current state and, more-particularly, dressed in this intentionally-distressed, lightly-sealed, heavily-grained hide, this piece might fall-short of the requirements of the perfectionist or more-precise buyer but, for someone looking for a more-informal, relaxed piece of high-design to position at the heart of their room, it is truly heaven sent! This superb chair possesses all the beauty and majesty you would hope for from some of the finest contemporary furniture money can buy.

Dimensions-wise, its measurements are H-75cm, W-83cm and D-80cm, and the breathtaking seating position this iconic classic-design creates is enhanced by the use of sumptuously comfortable, generously-upholstered composite back and seat cushioning, which leaves you powerless to resist its charms. Not only does it possess an aesthetic to die for, but it is sooooooooooooooooooooooooo comfortable too!

Costing close-to £5,000 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 chair to most UK mainland addresses will cost £90, 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.
