Posted on Feb 23, 2017 by

Founded in Turin in 1912, Poltrona Frau has furnished private homes, hotels and even ocean liners with fine full-grain leather for over a century. poltronafrau.com

The Poltrona Frau story started with just a single leather seat cover. Today, the renowned brand still produces its most iconic designs as well as introducing new contemporary bestsellers in leather.

To enhance the natural qualities of leather, Poltrona Frau has developed exclusive processes based on 20 different production phases, over double the number normally used in the leather for furnishing industry.
