Cozy, comfy and reassuring. Albereta, the armchair designed by Philippe Nigro, is characterized by its tall, wide wrap-around backrest, solid ash wood feet and soft and absolutely contemporary curves. Whether used in the living room or an open space, it is perfect for creating a cozy little corner for reading, listening to music or simply relaxing.
