A 3-piece chaise lounge by Italian maker, B & B Italia. This is from the “Sity” range- this is design at its most prestigious and best. You can get prestigious design that really isn’t that good- this lounge suite though ticks every box. It looks amazing but is not over-the-top- it would nestle in well into any space. The fabric on the cushions is original. The “Sity” design was released in 1986 (so most of these suites are about 30-years old). This was when 80’s pop-culture was peaking- modernist shapes combined with bright colours. The interesting thing is this new “minimalist” fabric still works very well … such a versatile design! This design responds best to the psychedelic Memphis-style fabrics from the 80’s. (Note that the suite in the screen-shot is priced at GBP 7029)

Antonio Citterio’s “Sity” lounges were designed in 1986 and won B&B Italia the Compasso D’Oro- Italy’s most prestigious Design award.
