Modern wingback armchair with footstool, comfortable high back and sloping arms. A timeless piece for traditional and contemporary decor schemes with a relaxed style. Upholstered in fabric, velvet or leather in a range colours.


A modern take on bergère fauteuils, Lù is a modern wingback armchair with footstool, high back and sloping arms. This is an all-around classic whose design is so recognisable that it is part of everyone's memory, making it a timeless piece that effortlessly suits both traditional and modern decor schemes. Almost an icon, the “grandfather” wing armchair has become a must-have for those who seek a relaxed, casual, welcoming sense of cosiness for their home.
The upholstery comes in fabric, velvet or leather in a range of neutral, pastel, earthy, accent colours or patterned variants. Thanks to the many colours available combining the Lù chair with other furniture pieces will be easy.
A comfortable living room chair for everyday use as a reading nook or fireside armchair, Lù is a creation of Italian designer Giuseppe Manzoni. In designing it, his work focused on rendering a shape that combines the homey intimacy conveyed by the soft shapes of the past, with more minimalist, practical requirements of the present day homes and apartments. Used as a statement piece, this high back winged armchair can be matched with any style precisely because its forms have been cleaned up and made contemporary. Proportions have been straightened, volumes tightened, feet reduced to a simple wood block: all to bring the chair to look more as a modern piece that intentionally nods to a faint country-cottage style, but without the frills and the tartan.
For maximum comfort - let us remind you that, after all, this is a comfy reading and relaxing armchair - the seat cushion has a goose feather filling for a luxurious plush feel, with the addition of a foam core for resiliency. Add the matching footrest to complete a nostalgic cosy look that will make you want to curl up with a book and a cup of tea.
Lù makes the perfect addition to any living room, home office, drawing room or reading corner.
