Clayton | Sofa

Jean-Marie Massaud

The cushions of the Clayton sofa seat are embellished with delicate X-shaped hand-stitching using contrasting thread. The springs of the seat are supported and upheld by a structure of handwoven saddle-leather belts. The architecture of the sofa is clear and light. The seat sits on steel blade feet with Ruthenium finish. The version of the Clayton that combines leather with fabric or velvet cushion covers is particularly rich in sensory emotions. The backrest and armrest panels, made from steel with light polyurethane foam padding, are joined by visible metal hinges with Ruthenium finish. Goose down for the soft padding of the armrest and backrest cushions. The Clayton sofa comes in the version completely upholstered in Pelle Frau® leather or in Pelle Frau® leather combined with the wide range of Poltrona Frau fabrics.

The Clayton bench, which can be accessorised with a cylindrical cushion, is a particularly versatile item of furniture. The optional cylindrical cushion is available in fabric or Pelle Frau® leather. The leather cushion has distinctive 3D stitching which creates a tight weave of little diamonds.

Concept and Design

The Clayton series by Poltrona Frau was launched with the sofa of the same name, a sumptuous creation distinctive for its sartorial elegance yet radically contemporary at the same time. The collection perfectly summarises Jean-Marie Massaud’s original design approach, a vision that combines the aesthetic beauty of refined artisan techniques with an in-depth examination of everyday living. The Clayton swivel armchair and bench with cushion represent two further examples of his quest to seamlessly combine timeless elegance with extreme modernity.
