The Socialite Family is delighted to present the Nonna footstool. An Empire-style square velvet 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.
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.
Velvet, a signature material
Velvet has a prominent place in the history of The Socialite Family. From the very beginning, we have chosen this material as a signature that you can now find throughout the products in our collection: the Bomboloni cushion , the Divino cushion and the Cavallo armchair and bench .
An ode to Italy from whence it comes, velvet is also an integral part of the life of Constance Gennari, founder and artistic director of The Socialite Family. It harks back to her Franco-Italian roots, as well as her childhood memories of peregrinations with her mother through a baroque and theatrical world
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.
