Internationally recognized for high-quality, handcrafted furniture, Poltrona Frau’s furniture making stems from its long history of producing leather. The deep leather tradition of Poltrona Frau also extends to the commercial sector as Poltrona Frau produces leather office furniture including leather office couches. Renzo Frau founded Poltrona Frau in 1912 when early designs, such as the Frau Armchair, reflected the emerging Art Deco styling. Over the last century, Poltrona Frau has integrated modern materials with production techniques relying upon the expertise of generations of artisans.
Many early pieces remain in the collection today and are a testament to Poltrona Frau’s heritage and the importance still placed upon the traditional art of handcrafted furniture making.
Poltrona Frau’s patented Pelle Frau® leather is the result of several years of experimentation into production of the finest quality full grain leather. The 21-step tanning process enhances the sensory pleasure of leather, maintaining the natural softness and durability of the finest hides.
Recognized all over the world, Poltrona Frau’s contemporary designs incorporate its rich history and original promise to produce the highest quality leather office furniture.
