The 'SIMONE' set is one of the first lacquered design pieces produced by Studio SIMONE.

We have thoughtfully restored and reupholstered the cushions in a newly released international textile by Soffany UK. In keeping with its heritage we chose this textile for its reminiscent 1970's colour palette and design, but with a modern contemporary edge that references fabrics from another Italian fashion house legacy FENDI. A clean cut velvet standing out from its beautiful satin background, a fabric that needs to be seen and touched . Low and deep seated with a mirror finish lacquer these are true Italian, chic and sophistication.
