The Socialite Family is delighted to present the Nonna footstool. An Empire-style square seat made by craftsmen in the Friuli region of Italy
The Nonna family is growing!
After the two-seater Nonna sofa and the three-seater Nonna sofa, The Socialite Family is proud to present the Nonna footstool. A square format, as discreet as it is elegant, and perfect as an occasional seat. Easy to move, our Nonna footstool can be pulled out or tucked away quickly and easily. It is decorative and will fit beside a bed, in the heart of a living room or, perhaps, in the hall.
A style that is both modern and retro
The Nonna footstool has it all: a square format; a chic and original fringed finish that sets the scene in an entrance hall, office or bedroom; and Italian velvet, comfortable and soft or the choice of foliage to modernise the tapestry look.
The idea is to play with its Empire-style aesthetic, which adds elegance and luxury to your interior, an aesthetic enhanced by the modernity of its velvet and its refined lines. Can you imagine it in the living room as a complement to a two-seater Nonna sofa or a three-seater Nonna sofa?.
A story of Italian expertise
A product of the unique craftsmanship of our factories in the province of Friuli, Italy, our Nonna footstool is made by hand. The craftsmen and women from the villages in the southeast of the Udine region are recognised today by the entire profession for the quality of their work.
Every line, every bit 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.
