Concept and Design

The Lyra armchair appeared for the first time entirely in leather in the Poltrona Frau catalogue of 1934 as a variant of an earlier 1916 model with velvet cushion called Lira. Renzo Frau’s 1934 replica, with its rounded backrest refined with leather-covered pins, is also influenced by the formal traits of gentlemen’s clubs, smoking rooms and Victorian parlours with its deep seat, comfortable armrests and thick goose down cushion. However, the Lyra armchair gives them a more feminine feel thanks to its sinuous, graceful lines and compact dimensions.
