The Lyra armchair appeared for the first time entirely in leather in the Poltrona Frau catalogue of 1934 as a variant of an earlier 1916 model with velvet cushion called Lira. Renzo Frau’s 1934 replica, with its rounded backrest refined with leather-covered pins, is also influenced by the formal traits of gentlemen’s clubs, smoking rooms and Victorian parlours with its deep seat, comfortable armrests and thick goose down cushion.

However, the Lyra armchair gives them a more feminine feel thanks to its sinuous, graceful lines and compact dimensions. The supporting structure of the Lyra armchair is made from seasoned beechwood. The seat and backrest spring system consists of hand-tied steel biconical springs attached to jute belts. The padding is in rubberised horsehair, and in soft goose down for the seat cushion. The optional lumbar cushion, padded with goose down, provides additional comfort. The Lyra armchair is upholstered in Pelle Frau® leather or fabric and refined with leather-covered pins in the upper part of the backrest and on the back. Lyra is a numbered series with a 24kt gold-plated label.
