Poltrona Frau and Cappellini Showroom - 8950 Beverly Boulevard


LOS ANGELES, CA, September 2015 - Poltrona Frau and Cappellini announce the reopening of its Los Angeles showroom location. The remodelled space will represent two of the three Poltrona Frau Group brands – Poltrona Frau and Cappellini - under one roof, while Cassina remains at its location, also on Beverly Boulevard, a few blocks away.

The 6,000 square foot space located at 8950 Beverly Boulevard, in the West Hollywood Design District, continues to gain reputation as a destination for architects, designers and customers interested in high quality Italian-made furniture. The classic elegance and handcraftsmanship of Poltrona Frau, and the avant-garde pieces by Cappellini will be highlighted in a contemporary setting designed to reflect the identity and personality of each collection. Together, the two brands serve as ambassadors of Italian culture and its devotion to detail, quality and perpetual style. In an on-going effort to create awareness and international appreciation for the history and advances of Italian design, Poltrona Frau and Cappellini strive to reach key markets and dedicated clientele throughout North America.

On display at the West Hollywood location will be a wide selection of products including iconic pieces such as Poltrona Frau’s historic Chester sofa dating back from 1923 to the Volare bed designed by Roberto Lazzeroni and presented at Salone del Mobile in April, 2015, along with popular contemporary pieces such as the Cappellini S-chair by Tom Dixon (1991) and the Cap chair by Jasper Morrison (2013).

The showroom opens with a cocktail reception on Thursday, September 17th from 6:00 – 8:00pm.
