Leslie is a collection of inviting armchairs that offer a feeling of intimacy and protection while outwardly expressing a formal elegance, thanks to their perfect proportions. An internal foam shell is fitted inside the heat-moulded structural polyurethane foam outer shell that is upholstered entirely in leather.
The armchair rests on an elegant solid ash base with open pore Moka lacquered finish and elegant Pewter-colour cast aluminium feet. Distinctive features of the Leslie armchair are its precise proportions and tailored construction that is evident in the utter perfection of the leather upholstery that covers the outer and inner shells.
The Leslie family includes a bergère, armchair with and without armrests and an ottoman. With their refined elegance, these elements contribute to the creation of cosy, intimate conversation groupings in the home and in hospitality settings such as lounges, waiting rooms and corporate offices.
