With its graceful, restrained proportions, the Crono settee reflects the lines of its namesake armchair.
The solid wood structure – Canaletto walnut or ash, stained in various shades – displays the kind of workmanship that clearly expresses the company’s flair for embracing the heritage of Italian cabinetmaking tradition as its own. As unique as it is sophisticated, the seat back is entirely hand-woven in a design made from cowhide cord. Three cushions in soft goose down make the seat back extremely comfortable, while the seat cushion is made of polyurethane foam covered with a protective laminated fabric. The Crono settee is an exquisite object with a bold personality that can function as a stand-alone piece or in combination with any of the seating options in the Flexform collection.
Note: Cushion not Included.
