Arabesque’s sinuous lines display the same natural tension as a dancer’s body.
Thin cushions layered like flower petals make for a supremely comfortable seat, while also providing a structure. This produces a compact and clean aesthetic where everything is designed to be welcoming.The deliberately low seat and the angled backrest, together with the pouf, ease you into an informal and relaxed position.
Materials and construction details are calibrated for maximum ergonomic performance. The elbow rests are lightly padded in polyurethane foam and covered in hand-sewn Pelle Frau® leather. Arabesque can be upholstered in Pelle Frau® leather or in elegant leather/ fabric combinations.
Founded in 1912, Poltrona Frau has been refining its sophisticated expertise in hand-crafted workmanship through 90 years of history. This expertise, perfected through time, continues to be passed down by master craftsmen from generation to generation.
Today, as in the past, this heritage of knowledge and skill is captured within each piece of Poltrona Frau furniture.
