Paolo Buffa sofas’ perfectly restored

These chairs that today we present are original from the 50’s. The main structure is made of cherry wood while the interior decorations are in beech.

For us who love the style of Paolo Buffa, it was easy to find them in a small country market. The conditions were quite good at the level of structure, but their upholstery had to be replaced, as it wears out with time.


Before restoration

After we cleaned, polished and ____ dato il trattamento antitarlo al legno, we tried a fabric that could complement them without losing the vintage style. We chose this iridescent velvet pad which gives light and character to the upholstery. It’s fabric is handcrafted and made in Italy, going with the desired characteristic. We sought to keep the authenticity, of “ made in Italy”, in two pieces. It was very important to keep, the history of Italian design.

The result obtained after the restoration is definitely fresh and current, suitable for every furnishing solution, whether it be vintage or modern.

These two beautiful chairs are now in a reading area of a nineteenth century building completely restored and modernized interiors. They are the masters of their location, where they were complemented, with a beautiful original vintage lamp 1950’s brass and Carrara marble.
