Vanity Fair is a replica of the celebrated 904 model that was part of Poltrona Frau's catalogue in 1903 and became an archetype after which modern armchairs have been patterned ever since.  It is known the world over for its typical rounded shape and the rows of leather-covered nails that add the finishing touch to the seatback and arms.  The padding uses both and-fashioned vegetal horsehair and rubberised horsehair, the seat cushion is filled with goose down.  The springing of the seat, back and arms is by means of biconic steel springs, tied manually and rested on jute belts.


Upholstered in Pelle Frau Leather

Leather and hide represents for Poltrona Frau the "material icons" to be used in so far as they are symbols of elegance, prestige, and quality.  Poltrona Frau have developed exclusive work procedures over the years, working on bovine leathers.  Such procedures are based on twenty-one different production steps and all of this is the fruit of Poltrona Frau's constant research.  Only leathers that are capable of guaranteeing characteristics such as transpiration, resistance to water, to scratches, and to stains, are defined as Pelle Frau leather.

Pelle Frau leather means colour too: a co-ordinated reange of 90 different nuances of colours.
