Poltrona Frau celebrates 100 years

The Milan fair 2012 saw Italian furniture brand Poltrona Frau celebrate 100 years of design. Exhibiting in the Design Village Poltrona Frau showcased their latest products and innovations. One such product was from the British designer Benjamin Hubert.

The Juliet armchair is the winner of the design contest held by the company to celebrate this important event between twelve talented designers from all over the world. With an invitation and a challenge: to project the brand values into the future, and to do so now. The idea is inspired by fashion and takes a particular detail, the puff sleeve, to give rise to a new concept of armchair, with a strong design.

Abitalia are the authorised stockist for the Poltrona Frau group (including Alias, Cassina, Cappellini and Nemo) in Gloucestershire. The Abitalia showroom currently has the Archibald armchair by Poltrona Frau on display. Why not pop along to view Poltrona Frau’s quality in person at 237 Gloucester Road, Cheltenham, GL51 8NJ.

Introducing Cappellini

Forming another part of the Poltrona Frau Group is the furniture brand Cappellini. Along with Cassina, both companies are now exclusively sold through Abitalia, an interior design studio based in Cheltenham.

Cappellini’s products have come along way since the company began in 1946, with their creative talents now being recognised internationally. The Cappellini collections are simple, refined and yet experimental. The company are certainly never boring, always proposing brave ideas with a touch of humour. Cappellini work with designers from all over the World which means there is no real ‘Cappellini style’, however this allows consumers to have their own individual interpretation on any product.

All of Cappellini’s products are designed to be used. Not only are they museum worthy designs but their practicality means each product can be used in any home.
“Naturally I am very happy when a Cappellini product enter to the permanent collection of a museum of art. But I am really happier when I see it in the real houses of the people: in this case only I feel to have goaled the purpose of design.” - Giulio Cappellini

Abitalia is the authorised stockist of Cappellini in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire. Abitalia work with private clients as well as architects and developers, designing and supplying contemporary furniture for all areas.
