Armchairs and lounge chairs are furnishing accessories that always have their own meaning and value, whether on their own or in combination with other elements such as sofas, coffee tables or floor lamps.
Their function is twofold. Firstly, they must ensure the right comfort for those who sit in them and might wish to spend entire evenings or weekends in the company of a good book for example. Secondly, they cannot fail to fulfil our aesthetic needs. In both cases, it is very important to choose the right mix of materials, shapes and colours whilst also considering the setting in which the armchair will be placed.
When looking for the perfect armchair, it is important to remember a few simple rules. For instance, any element added to a space must not compromise the balance created with the other furnishing accessories. Furthermore, being able to move around a space must always be made agile and never be impeded. If a room is large, then ideally you can create different environments for conversation, relaxation, concentration or conviviality. Where there are doors and windows, the view must not be covered with objects that block your eyes from seeing the “horizon”.
Within Calia Italia‘s Superior and Premium collections, there are numerous models of armchairs and small armchairs made according to different objectives of comfort and design.
Norman, an armchair by Calia Italia, was designed by Daniele Della Porta. Light in form and surprisingly comfortable, Norman features a forward-leaning tubular metal frame. It is an armchair that challenges the viewer by inviting you to sit down and experience an unexpected comfort. With a frame and armrests upholstered in regenerated leather, Norman features a soft cushion-back designed to offer a stylish yet informal comfort experience.
Jacob sees Calia Italia reinterpreting the classic style of bergère reading chairs through a combination of natural leathers and fine fabrics. It can have a high or low backrest and features a soft, feather padded seat for unparalleled comfort. All in all it is a true icon, capable of providing a unique comfort experience.
Venere is a Calia Italia sofa that also offers an armchair and small armchair version. Both versions pick up on the two main features of the Venere sofa line in that they are slim with an embracing structure and soft seat cushions. In particular, the small armchair also features a back cushion, designed to offer an even more intense comfort experience. Thanks to its small size, the Venere small armchair is also perfect for smaller rooms.
Another armchair that enriches the Calia Italia collections is Fleur. Thanks to its spiked feet and original decorative stitching, Fleur stands out for its refinement and details. A small-sized armchair, comfortable and elegant, it is perfect for smaller environments or tight spaces. Fleur is a model that accompanies moments of conversation and relaxation with style, transforming them into pure comfort experiences.
Finally, Giuggiola (Calia Italia’s iconic armchair) is the result of a collaboration with students from the Industrial Design degree course at La Sapienza University in Rome. Created to enhance the beauty and strength of women, Giuggiola is inspired by the “crocchie”, the braids with which the women of Matera who lived in the Sassi gathered their hair. It is a model that welcomes and pampers with its elegant and creative comfort experience.
