Happy Birthday, Vanity Fair! Poltrona Frau celebrates the 90th anniversary of its armchair-symbol, presenting a revisited version with the 2020 collection.

To celebrate the 90th anniversary of the launch of Vanity Fair, Poltrona Frau is offering a reinterpretation of its armchair-symbol designed by the Poltrona Frau Style & Design Centre in collaboration with the designer Roberto Lazzeroni.

Vanity Fair XC has a 100x100cm base and is 97cm tall. The supporting structure is in solid seasoned beech wood. The padding is made of both hand-shaped vegetable horsehair and rubberized horsehair and the seat cushion is made of goose down with a polyurethane foam insert to help it keep its shape over time. The seat, back and armrests have steel biconical springs tied by hand and fixed to jute belts. A row of nails covered in leather add refinement to the back and sides of the armchair. The upholstery can be in Pelle Frau leather or in fabric. A golden or gunmetal grey finish plaque with the Poltrona Frau logo is included in the frame on the back.

With this anniversary edition, Poltrona Frau wants to reiterate the guiding principle it has consistently pursued for years: in the world of furniture and interior decoration, true luxury lies in a culture of meditated and durable design combined with an intransigence in choosing, working and producing only the best. 90 years another hundred times over, Vanity Fair!
