Couture Armchair Collection

by BD Barcelona Design

Price On Application

The Couture Armchair is an elegant and innovative armchair designed by Färg & Blanche for BD Barcelona Design. The curvaceous back of the armchair features the designers' trademark "wood tailoring" technique, whereby sheets of plywood in different finishes are stitched together using thread, much like pieces of fabric. The end result is a distinctive layer pattern which showcases the wood grains beautifully. This layer pattern is mirrored in the upholstery of the seat back in a harmonious design. The Couture armchair is a wonderful showcase of cutting edge design combined with traditional craftsmanship. It works particularly well in design-focused interiors, whether in a living room or bedroom at home or at the centre of attention in a hotel lobby or office reception area. 

The Couture Armchair comes in a full size version (Couture) and a more compact version (Little Couture).

The armchairs are part of a collection which also includes a cabinet.

Fredrik Färg and Emma Marga Blanche are a Swedish-French design duo who add personality, technique and innovation. They are known for their experimental stance, moving effortlessly between hand crafted one-off designs and industrial produced products, without ever losing their distinctive touch.

BD Barcelona Design is a unique brand at the intersection between art and design.  Founded in 1972, Its owners come from an architectural background and have consistently championed beauty over pure functionality. Its skilled craftsmen in Barcelona create superior quality furniture and objects from design icons such as Antoni Gaudi, Salvador Dali and Ettore Sottsass as well as leading contemporary designers such as Jaime Hayon.
