The Comfy Armchair is a playful and comfortable armchair designed by Marcantonio for Seletti. The design of the armchair is inspired by the designer's youth, when he used to construct play houses using sofa cushions and seating pads. These fond memories have been translated into a generously proportioned armchair with a profusion of cushions designed to embrace the sitter in extravagant comfort.
The armchair is hand-crafted in Italy using high quality fabrics with an extraordinary level of attention to detail. Each cushion is made in a different fabric with its edge finished in a different way, all in a carefully chosen palette of turquoise, white or grey. The end result is a joyfully welcoming armchair which looks messy and coordinated at the same.
The Comfy Sofa is part of a collection which also includes the Comfy Sofa. The armchair is suitable for private and public spaces and works especially well as a statement piece in loft-style living spaces and office break-out areas.
Italian designer Marcantonio Raimondi Malerba attended the Art Institute and the Academy of Fine Arts in Milan and soon began to create unique pieces of design in parallel with artworks. The connection between Man and Nature is Marcantonio's favourite theme: his main inspiration comes from nature and its life principles. His aim is to turn art into design - and vice versa.
Seletti has evolved a long way from its roots as a family business founded in 1964 importing interior products into Italy. Now run by the second generation with Stefano Seletti at its creative helm, Seletti has broadened its product range from tableware to decorative items, lighting, furniture and more. Its vast collection reflects the creative energy of Stefano's team and his distinctive design philosophy: playful designs inspired by everyday objects but always with an unexpected, witty twist. Surprising and delightful in equal measures and always at democratic prices.
