Massaud’s Newest Masterpiece: The Archibald Dining Chair for Poltrona Frau

Archibald Dining Chair


Jean-Marie Massaud

Poltrona Frau introduced a stunning group of new pieces with the launch of their 2019 Home Collection, including Jean-Marie Massaud’s sublime new Archibald dining chair. It is the next iteration of his beloved Archibald armchair introduced ten years ago.

We had the pleasure of watching Massaud sign a series of chairs in honor of the 10 year anniversary at Salone this year. The original was also on display at the Haworth Collection Showroom at NeoCon as this line has great crossover capabilities.The Archibald dining chair offers a contemporary take on the classic English tub chair with sleeker proportions for a more defined silhouette. Sculpted, clean and contemporary, the Archibald dining chair has been softened with a sartorial touch that is evident in every detail by its designer, like the sumptuous folds on the inside of the backrest upholstered in leather. Equally perfect for contemporary spaces and more traditional interiors, Poltrona Frau’s Archibald dining chair by Massaud can be upholstered in Poltrona Frau’s acclaimed Pelle Frau® leather or fabric.
