modular sofa / contemporary / fabric / leather
fabric, leather, steel
by Jean-Marie Massaud
Jean-Marie Massaud interprets the Clayton sofa as a sophisticated haute couture creation.
Sumptuous yet radically modern, architectural and enveloping just like an haute couture dress.
Luxurious stitching, worthy of the finest tailors, runs right along the outside edge of the Pelle Frau® leather-upholstered backrest and armrests to create a sophisticated 3D effect.
The seat cushions are embellished with delicate x-shaped stitches applied by hand with contrasting thread - a subtle reference to the distinctive hallmark of Jean-Marie Massaud's furniture for Poltrona Frau. A highly decorative web of hand-braided saddle leather straps supports and secures the seat springs. The architecture of the sofa is clear and light. The seat rises from the floor on steel feet with Ruthenium finish. The version of the Clayton that combines leather with fabric or velvet for the cushion covers guarantees a particularly rich sensory experience.
The backrest and armrest panels, in steel with light polyurethane foam padding, are connected by exposed metal hinges in a Ruthenium finish. Goose down is used for the soft padding of the armrest and backrest cushions. Clayton is available in a version entirely upholstered in Pelle Frau® leather or in combination with the wide range of Poltrona Frau fabrics.
