Thanks to Salocchi Studio for providing us this archival material.


Original cognac leather (listed as type "Savana 1" on original Sormani lookbook) perfectly intact, no tears, no scuffs. The leather however has stains (mostly on one headrest), darkenings, patina, aging that adds charme rather than effecting its look. It is possible to clean more the leather and reduce this patina, we can take care of that on customer's request but at the moment we prefer to keep them in their original state. The stuffing is fine and the armchairs are very comfortable, we recommend keeping them in their original state.
