The Wick - Vanity Fair XC Imagine Edition | Armchair

Object Vanity Fair XC Imagine Edition armchair by Poltrona Frau and Fornasetti

Two Italian design giants have joined forces to bring some celestial magic to our homes. Poltrona Frau has teamed up with Fornasetti to reimagine one of its furniture standouts, the Vanity Fair XC armchair, which first debuted in 1930. The chair has been given a surreal transformation with an illustration from the Fornasetti archive, designed by Piero Fornasetti in the 1950s and given a contemporary spin by his son, Barnaba. A sun and moon rises over swirling clouds in the silk-screened design, produced in 50 individually numbered editions. To sit in the chair is to float among clouds.
