Merging past and present, Milanese designer Nicoletta Gatti's remarkable collection of old armchairs recounts their stories by dressing them in new "clothes." This Fanback-style armchair has a high square back and flared armrests with rounded corners, all upholstered with out-of-catalog Rubelli's fabrics featuring green, ochre and brown striped velvet on the outside and mustard yellow chiseled silk velvet with textured dots on the inside (original design by Gio Ponti from the 1934 Biennale). The contrasting patterns enhance the retro-chic style of this piece perfect for a mid-century interior.
