Behind every great man there’s a great woman. That’s precisely why Eurocasa supplier Poltrona Frau simply wouldn’t and couldn’t design their desk, Fred, without a beautiful, compatible seat to stand beside him! She goes by the name Ginger and here is his and her story…
The design for Eurocasa’s Fred desk could have been inspired by the wild wild west. With its saddle leather-clad surface that folds over the back, John Wayne would have been attracted to this furniture item hands down! In fact, the fold of leather pretty much mimics the way a saddle might hang over a horse’s back. The leather has been embellished with delicate hand carvings across the surface. It is available in dark brown and camel and is protected by a wax finish.
Below Fred’s leather surface a desk drawer is housed. This Eurocasa unit is mounted on metal soft-close runners made from wedge-coloured solid ash wood, the same material from which the entire frame of the desk is made. The entire frame also runs along a triangular structure or design.
Fred’s right hand woman, Ginger, is an easy chair that was made specifically for the desk. She is also from the wild wild west but is not one for horses. But she is rather fond of vests made from the same saddle leather material. You can see this in the way she was designed – she looks like a leather vest may have inspired her. The arms rise up from the seat and meet the backrest forming a vest-like shape with openings for arms and all. Of course, you wouldn’t wear Ginger like a vest but would rather sit on her. This Eurocasa chair will also provide comfort with her foam padding and leather upholstery that is 5 mm thick. Her leather is enhanced by visible topstitching that runs along whole of the outside edge.
