The Grasso Armchair, designed by Stephen Burks for BD Barcelona Design, is a comfortable and inviting armchair ideal for any space. Grasso (which means "fat" in Italian) is visually striking, its leather upholstery spilling over the iron structure, bursting with comfort. This effect is emphasised by the use of a single piece of premium quality leather with minimal seams. Available in various metal frame and upholstery colours, the Grasso Armchair works well both for private use and in commercial spaces, for example in bars and reception areas.
Grasso is a collection of furniture and accessories designed by Stephen Burks for BD Barcelona Design. The Grasso Armchair can be accompanied by the Grasso Footstool. The collection is also available in other leather / metal frame combinations, please contact us for more details.
