Ziemlich auf Draht

Jarvis is more modern, a proper re-rendering of the recent past, with its matelassé effect obtained using leather as the basic material. Traditional capitonné surrenders its customary scope, only to be applied to a chair. Its distinctive pattern, though i
nspired to the aesthetic standards of the Fifties, proves to be quite modern indeed, for it can re-render the stylistic elements of that period in an original way. A tubular metal frame supports a padded seat upholstered in leather that is folded perfectl
y in the point where the seat and backrest meet, where the lower portion is the seat and the flared upper portion is the backrest. The capitonné pattern is enlivened by means of details such as the colored “mouse tail” running along the external rim, or t
he multicolor tufts in the place of buttons on the stitching of the padding.
