Excellence in raw materials, artisan crafting and design. Louisiana is the armchair designed by Vico Magistretti inspired by a saddle: the stitching follows the rounded curves, and the leather becomes more and more beautiful with the passage of time. Cotton tape trims the removable inner lining. Together, an armchair and pouf create the most comfortable relaxation corner in the world, right at home.
