The Socialite Family presents the Cavallo armchair in wood and cane, hand-made in the Friuli-Venezia Giulia region of Italy.
A tale of Italian expertise
The fruit of the skilled craftsmanship of our factories in the Italian province of Friuli, our Cavallo armchairis a product of true handiwork. The artisans of the villages in the southeast of the Udine province are recognised by their entire trade for the quality of their work.
Every curve, every finish is the result of several days spent in a specialist workshop to ensure a perfect seating. It's the unique horse-shoe shape that gives this armchair its name. Its frame perfectly follows the shape of your spine, to ensure comfortable support.
Ideal finishing touches for both classic and modern rooms
The Cavallo armchair combines cane work and curved wood. The perfect balance between expert Italian craftsmanship and timeless lines that will quickly make its mark in your home:
- Natural cane backrest, also available in deep black: a play on materials for a soft, light look or a refined style with bags of character.
- Frame available in wood with cherry wood finish, natural wood or a lacquered black finish: a one-piece frame, for a solid, high-quality product.
- Brass legs: a luminous material that once again recalls the Italian inspiration behind this armchair.
One armchair: endless possibilities
Positioned separately, mixed with other pieces from The Socialite Family or as part of a wholly Cavallo canework suite, our stylish wooden models are instantly at home at a desk, in a bedroom, in a bathroom or as a pair (or more!) around a dining table or a coffee table in the sitting room.
The choice of seat colours lets you seamlessly adapt your armchair to any style of interior decoration. Why not dress it with a Bomboloni cushion to bring out its character and give it a new look?
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.
