This is an icon of Poltrona Frau company production. Chester recalls classical models of sofas and armchairs of the Edwardian age.
Leather covering, buttons, capitonné sewing, vegetable and rubber-processed hair of the padding, feather cushions, are highly precious materials and involve a very careful manufacturing, witnessing a handcraft culture that makes Poltrona Frau style something unique and unmatched.
The skilled handcrafttouch can be recognised in the hand-assembling of the springing system with steel double-cone springs on a seasoned beech wood frame.
A distinctive feature of Chester is the completely hand-made pleated armrest that completes with elegance the precious "capitonnée" padding of the cover.
Designer: Renzo Frau (1912)
