The Socialite Family presents the Pio chair with its matt black tubular steel structure, walnut finish ash wood armrests and black imitation leather seat, handcrafted in the Friuli region of Italy.
A vintage-inspired look
The Socialite Family brand's aesthetic is all about this woman: Constance Gennari, our founder and artistic director, who, through her Franco-Italian roots, has acquired a unique talent for blending childhood memories and vintage inspirations.
As a consequence, the Pio chair brings together the meticulously refined style of the period between the 1950s and 1960s and the club spirit. Whether you prefer it in faux leather or felt, its elegant seat and sleek lines in matt black steel, both minimalist and soft, guarantee absolute comfort.
A story of Italian expertise
A product of the unique craftsmanship of our factories in the province of Friuli in Italy, our Pio chair is made by hand. The craftsmen and women from the villages in the south-east of the Udine region are recognised today by the entire profession for the quality of their work.
Every line, every finish is the result of several days spent in a specialist workshop to create the perfect chair. The seat that will give you the most pleasure once you sit down.
Ideal finishes for a piece that is both classic and modern
The Pio chair is a combination of a steel structure, walnut finish ash wood armrests and a leatherette or felt seat. The perfect balance between the acknowledged skills of our Italian craftsmen and a timeless vintage-inspired look that is sure to find a place in your home:
? A black steel frame with a matte finish: an elegant structure combining finesse, modernity and solidity.
? Armrests in ash, with a walnut finish: a traditional material as a welcome addition to this chair with an industrial silhouette.
? A seat available in imitation leather and felt: two versions reminding us once again of the vintage inspiration behind the Pio chair. Imitation leather and its comfort at all times. And felt, with its fashionable look, which reminds us of a man's suit jacket.
One chair: a thousand possibilities
Try placing several around a dining room table, or use one as a replacement for an armchair in a living room or at a desk; our Pio chair is a real chameleon.
Rest assured, it will adapt itself perfectly to your interior, mixed with some of your pieces to enhance their appearance, or as a total look, accompanied by other Pio chairs, to give strong direction to your decoration.
Its different versions allow you to adapt your chair to any type of interior design with no false notes, to create various atmospheres. Imitation leather for a masculine feel, imbued with elegance and nostalgia. Felt for lovers of beautifully crafted fabrics, with a hint of old-fashioned style.
The leopard, a couture pattern imagined by The Socialite Family
"The leopard design was always part of the decor of my childhood" - Constance Gennari. The spirit of yesteryear with a sweet hint of the unique that led our founder and artistic director to want to create the first pattern for The Socialite Family. A character-filled design with an ikat effect - a special artistic technique that brings modernity to the pattern - that comes to life with cotton jacquard, adorning our iconic creations with added playfulness. This is the way our brand celebrates the eclectic universe of Parisian decorator Madeleine Castaing. An impertinent style with a strong emphasis that can be found on this animal motif created by our design studio with the help of an illustrator.
To embody this in our creations, we spontaneously chose an unbeatable quality jacquard, woven in an Italian factory in the Lombardy region. Give new momentum to your interior with this leopard motif. The Rotondo sofa, the Gioia table lampshade, the Bomboloni and Divino cushions: whether you use them as monumental pieces to make a statement or just sparingly as accessories to enhance the atmosphere, our leopard motif is nothing but a timeless favourite. A new classic aimed at enthusiasts and novices alike who want to indulge in wild and daring dissonance.
