In early 2007, designers Renzo Fauciglietti and Graziella Bianchi expanded on the success of their Bottega Side Chair with the introduction of a Bottega Armchair and Stool (2007). Both of the chairs are constructed with harmonic sheet steel backs that flex with users for continuous support. All three pieces are wrapped in smooth-as-silk stain resistant leather that's both luxurious and low-maintenance. Covering the slender but strong steel frames, the leather is hand-sewn to hug every angle and > MORE curve. The seats are lightly padded to encourage leisurely dining. This combination of suppleness and strength found in Bottega is not always easy to find in fixed seating. A choice of leather colors makes Bottega suitable for a variety of settings. Made in Italy.
