Product description

Francesco Binfaré, the designer-painter whose poetically allegorical work is expressed in strong, succinct strokes, has created a special upholstery design for his Flap sofa. Fully extended, the Flap becomes a huge canvas. The painting: a romantic

kiss under a star-studded sky between him and her – hair flowing in the wind. Once more Binfaré returns to his signature theme of the couple, the leitmotif of many of his upholstered creations.
After being encrusted with crystals, the F

lap’s sinuous silhouette has now been given a single, exclusive, made-to-measure gown. It marks a whole new chapter in the life of this famous article: the signed, limited-edition series. Binfaré’s artwork literally embraces the settee,

stretching across the whole length and down the sides. Made like a tapestry in one single piece, the fabric covering comes off the loom the exact shape to fit the divan structure. A variation of the jacquard weave, it comprises a mix of yarns: a backgro

und of chenille, brilliant satin for the sky, and embroidered cotton cretonne for an embossed, almost three-dimensional effect.
