The Socialite Family is delighted to present the Nonna two-seater sofa. An Empire-style velvet seat made by craftsmen in the Friuli region of Italy.
A style that is modern and retro at the same time
The Nonna sofa has it all: a generous piece of furniture on which you can relax together, ideal for large or small spaces. A chic and original fringed finish that sets the scene in an entrance hall, office or bedroom. An Italian velvet, comfortable and soft.
The idea is to play with its Empire-style aesthetic, which adds refined elegance and luxury to your interior, an aesthetic enhanced by the modernity of the velvet and the sophisticated lines. The Socialite Family likes to see the Nonna two-seater sofa in front of a coloured wall so that it reveals all its splendour and dresses the room on its own, in combination with our Bomboloni round cushions. It can also be used to create a complete living room look with its matching Nonna three-seater sofa version or its Nonna square footstool.
A story of Italian expertise
A product of the unique craftsmanship of our factories in the province of Friuli, Italy, our Nonna two-seater sofa 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 curve, every piece of padding, every fringe is the result of several days spent in a specialist workshop to obtain its perfect look.
Nonna: products that sound Italian
Nonna, literally "grandmother" in Italian. As with all our models, our footstool is named after Constance Gennari's trans-alpine origins.
A name tailor-made for this reassuring seat with an Empire look which reminds us of an elegant and elderly lady, possibly from Milan. Balancing tradition and a modern look, the Nonna footstool has won over the team at The Socialite Family.
Foliage, a motif to modernise a tapestry vibe
After bringing you the the leopard print pattern, the tiger print pattern and the reworked blue and bordeaux red striped motif, our co-founder Constance Gennari alongside our Parisian design studio, has come up with a 100% cotton foliage pattern with a tapestry vibe. Anything but old-fashioned and gentrified, this motif is a nod to the woven works of the Aubusson factory and will win you over with its strikingly modern look: lush vegetation in a palette of cheerful, comforting colours - purple, pink, almond green, dark green - that will allow your mind to wander through a landscape that recalls a painting. The profusion of round flowers and dense leaves on this French woven fabric will take your breath away. A bold pattern that will bring the aesthetic world of tapestry back into your home, from bedroom to living room.
Featured on our Rotondo modular sofa, our Nonna Empire-style fringed sofa, our Adri bolster cushion, our Carino cushion, our Gloria wooden armchair, and our Chiesa minimalist wooden stool, the foliage motif will make a bold statement in every room of your home. Whether you use it sparingly or as a total look, it will bring warmth and a witty touch to your interior.
