Overview

GranTorino Sofa by Jean-Marie Massaud for Poltrona Frau highlights the world of saddlery, a realm of luxury craftsmanship and expert processing. The saddle leather, cut and molded by hand, closely follows the lines and geometries of the seating reducing the overall dimensions of the sofa to a minimum. This system of modular sofa units combines compact, well-calibrated volumes with extremely comfortable seats.

Precision and complex workmanship define both the slim high armrest and the low armrest. The latter is available with a small compartment that houses an elegant natural oak tray. The versions offered here feature high arms. For other compositions, please contact a Studio Como design consultant.
