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.
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.
