Poufs from Poltrona Frau, Designed by Virginia Harper

Product description

Virginia Harper designs Hudson: an elegant game of Chinese boxes, of solids and voids, of lightness and material. Hudson is a side table that contains another one. The first Hudson side table is a mini architectural design inspired by New York’s Freedom Tower. The hollow structure skilfully reproduces a hexagonal prism that extends towards the sky. The second pouf-side table fits perfectly in the cavity of the bigger table. A little leather or saddle-leather handle enables you to remove and move the pouf with ease and to use it alongside the other element or simply on its own. The Hudson side table is composed of a tubular metal structure with gunmetal grey finish. The surface is in sheet metal and black painted birch plywood. The upholstery, in Saddle leather with raw-edge seam and contrast stitching, alternates three full-grain leather panels with three in punched leather with a particular geometric motif. The structure of the Hudson pouf-side table is in birch plywood with light padding in polyurethane foam. The surface is in poplar plywood with curved side panels in hardboard. The upholstery is available in Pelle Frau® leather or fabric.


Virginia Harper makes her Poltrona Frau debut with the Hudson side table range, a project which combines refined construction and complex processing with a playful spirit.

In this elegant interplay of Chinese boxes, solids and voids, lightness and material, one side table contains the next. The first mini architectural design is inspired by the Freedom Tower in New York. The gunmetal grey-finished tubular metal hollow structure forms a hexagonal prism that extends towards the sky, and is surrounded by six panels of Cuoio Saddle® Extra leather expertly stitched together with a contrasting thread. The upholstery alternates between three panels of full-grain leather and three of punched leather. This intricate engraved decoration offers a glimpse of the second table, which nests perfectly in the recess of the first. This compact pouf-side table is constructed from beech plywood covered with a thin polyurethane foam padding and completely upholstered in fabric or Pelle Frau® Soul, Nest, Heritage, Century or Color System leather. A small handle on the upper rim allows the pouf to be easily moved and used either alongside the other table or as a standalone furnishing. The handle of the textile version of the pouf is upholstered in Cuoio Saddle® Extra leather whilst the leather-upholstered pouf is paired with Pelle Frau® leather.

The top of the external hexagonal table is composed of sheet metal and black painted birch plywood with leather upholstery.
