A Poltrona Frau classic since Renzo Frau presented it in 1912, Chester has graced the decades and generations with its timeless elegance, becoming a genuine icon in the history of interior design. Chester Line is its natural evolution, lightened and updated to reflect the new requirements of contemporary living.

The classic sofa with its sculpted design is deconstructed and multiplied, becoming a genuine system of modular sofas with five different elements: chaise longue and armchair, both without armrests, pouf and two corner sofa end-sections. The distinctive features and precious processing details of the Chester are all present, revisited here in a lighter form in the quest for an informal elegance achieved by subtraction: the historic capitonné remains on the backrest while the base of the sofa disappears; the metal feet are almost invisible to further emphasise the beauty of the seat; compared with the classic two-seater sofa, there is just one large cushion which is even more comfortable. The elements without armrests and backrest also make it possible to add accessories like the Fidelio side tables and lamp, enhancing the functionality of the various configurations. The supporting structure of the Chester Line sofa is made from solid seasoned beechwood. The seat, backrest and armrest spring system consists of hand-tied biconical springs on jute belts. The backrest and armrests are padded with hand-shaped vegetable horsehair. Seat cushion in goose down with the addition of a polyurethane foam stabilising insert. The upholstery is in Pelle Frau® leather, which can be matched with the Poltrona Frau fabrics in different combinations. Wooden feet covered with leather or blade-shaped aluminium feet with brushed-burnished finish; alternatively, classic version feet, high or low, in beech with dark walnut stain or lacquered black.
