Clayton armchair

Jean-Marie Massaud conceives the Clayton sofa as a sophisticated haute couture creation, sumptuous and at the same time radically modern, architectural and enveloping just like a high fashion dress. Luxurious stitches befitting of the finest tailoring run along the entire external surface of the backrest and armrests, upholstered in Pelle Frau® leather.

The effect is one of stylish three-dimensionality.
The cushions of the Clayton sofa seat are embellished with delicate X-shaped hand-stitching using contrasting thread. The springs of the seat are supported and upheld by a structure of handwoven saddle-leather belts. The architecture of the sofa is clear and light. The seat sits on steel blade feet with Ruthenium finish. The version of the Clayton that combines leather with fabric or velvet cushion covers is particularly rich in sensory emotions. The backrest and armrest panels, made from steel with light polyurethane foam padding, are joined by visible metal hinges with Ruthenium finish. Goose down for the soft padding of the armrest and backrest cushions. The Clayton sofa comes in the version completely upholstered in Pelle Frau® leather or in Pelle Frau® leather combined with the wide range of Poltrona Frau fabrics.
