The New Deal armchair was produced in 1929 by Savina Pisani according to the notes of her husband, Renzo Frau. Observing the characteristic design of the armrests and the trim on the back consisting of little pins, it is easy to see that in reality the New Deal is an early version of the famous Vanity Fair with smaller dimensions and a circular backrest.

Smooth, taut forms with a welcoming and aerodynamic design, typical of art deco, the New Deal armchair is one of the great classics of the Poltrona Frau catalogue. The supporting structure of the New Deal armchair is made from seasoned beechwood. The spring system consists of biconical steel springs attached to jute belts. The seat is padded with rubberised horsehair while the backrest and armrests are in hand-shaped vegetable horsehair. The seat cushion is made of goose down. The feet are made from beech with a dark walnut stain. The upholstery is in Pelle Frau® leather. A row of hand-applied leather-covered pins refines the back and sides of the armchair.
