Overview

Metro­pol­i­tan Armchair, designed by Jeffrey Bernett for B&B Italia, is characterized by its uninterrupted flow from arm to seat. This armchair features gentle curves and engag­ing cants that create stunning sculp­tural forms from all angles. Available compositions include low, mid, high, and wing­back versions with optional headrest and ottoman.

All versions of the Metropolitan feature a central column swivel support that culmi­nates in four splayed spokes to form the base. The high-back version is also avail­able with a simple flat disc base. The inno­v­a­tive roll-shaped headrest on the high-back version is adjustable through the clever use of magnets.

Pair the Metropolitan armchair with its ideal companion piece, Metropolitan Ottoman.
