About

Story of an italian brand that has grown all over the world.

We have a great future behind us.

Renzo Frau founded Poltrona Frau in Turin in 1912. In the 30’s it was already a status symbol. From 1926 it was appointed supplier of the Italian Royal Family, the Savoia dynasty. From then on, it will furnish all the most important houses, grand hotels, the interiors for Expo Turin 1928, and the lavish transatlantic Rex, pride of the Italian Navy.

Who we are

The more you “live” a story, the more interesting it becomes. This is true for the leather of our sofas as for our company’s history, so full of personal experiences, encounters, professional skills and inspiring visions, which have made it a “unicum”. A story that completes itself and stands out in the multi-coloured Italian manufacturing and creative world.

One brand, three souls

What we do

We create understated and elegant objects inspired by tradition and projected into the future to offer living solutions and guarantee the emotional and aspirational needs of a refined and sophisticated international clientele.

How we do it

Each material is carefully selected and sourced based on technical, functional and emotional characteristics to ensure every product is durable, optimized in weight and manufactured with advanced processes that are sustainable for the environment and long lasting for the customer.
