The Jack bed, designed by Jean-Marie Massaud, has the authority and character of a product that defines a space. The headboard is superbly rigorous, embellished by a light and delicate hand-stitched X motif that epitomises the expert craftsmanship typically associated with Poltrona Frau.
Jack can be enriched with two bedside surfaces, upholstered like the bed. The structure of the Jack headboard is in birch plywood and MDF with soft padding in polyurethane foam and polyester wadding. The base is made from lightly padded poplar plywood. The cylindrical feet are in matt black-coloured aluminium. The optional bedside surfaces are composed of a circular surface upholstered in Pelle Frau® leather and a metal arm with gunmetal grey finish that allows them to be moved. The upholstery is in Pelle Frau® leather. The Jack bed can be completed with the wide range of bed surfaces, mattresses and coordinated accessories from the Poltrona Frau Notte® collection.
The Jack Bed is available in king and queen sizes. The back can either be chosen in fabric or leather upholstery and comes in dimensions such as 160cm, 170cm and 180cm.
