Coming from solid Italian origins with an international reach, Poltrona Frau is a leader in high-end furniture, and is a spokesman throughout the world for the values associated with the design and production of Italian-made goods. The brand has been refining its sophisticated expertise in hand-crafted workmanship through a hundred years of history. This expertise, perfected through time, continues to be passed down by master craftsmen from generation to generation.
Poltrona Frau was founded by Renzo Frau in Turin in 1912. In the 30’s it was already a status symbol. From 1926 it was appointed supplier of the Italian Royal Family, the Savoia dynasty. From then on, it will furnish all the most important houses, grand hotels, the interiors for Expo Turin 1928, and the lavish transatlantic Rex, pride of the Italian Navy.
Today, as in the past, this heritage of knowledge and skill is captured within each piece of Poltrona Frau furniture. The intimate and timeless elegance, the personality of each individual piece, is the fruit of the craftsman’s skill and a design that enhances hand-crafted workmanship even in the most modern forms. The manufacturing expertise has always been combined with research into materials, in order to obtain the best from the exclusive Pelle Frau® leather, modernizing them while keeping their original, natural softness, warmth and tactile qualities. The same care and passion are also devoted to the most innovative and technological materials.
