Marco Zanuso style 'Lady' chair & footstool

ROOMSCAPE
Marco Zanuso Lady chair & footstool (in the style of), newly made in 25 colours of velvet, Italian. Made exclusively for Roomscape`s Contemporary Collection.

This armchair & matching footstool are available to order in a choice of 25 velvet colours as the swatches photographed. This is an example of colour #14 pale rose. Production time is under 10 weeks.

Marco Zanuso`s `Lady`chair is the 20th Century Design classic which inspired this contemporary armchair & matching footstool made in Italy exclusively for Roomscape. The `Lady` chair was the complementary piece designed to go alongside Marco Zanuso`s `Senior` chair. Slightly shorter in height & more reclined, the `Lady`chair shares the similar organic curves to the design & great comfort.

Designed for the era of lounge living, this armchair is inviting with its reclined back, relaxing curves & lush velvet. The elegant style, size, & quality detail make this chair well suited for an impressive sitting room. Part reclined, part `ready for take-off`, this armchair reflects the 1950`s ideals of lounge living and the Atomic-age. The organic curves ensure the design remains soft while also adding movement & continuity. The style fits within a range of Interiors such as Traditional, Art Deco, Hollywood Regency, Minimalist, Industrial or Contemporary.

The velvet fabric name is "Honey Moon" by Anteprima, Italy. It is quality velvet 100% polyester, high performance with good backing, soft, durable and flame retardant. All the components meet fire regulations. We are happy to send some fabric swatches by post to see the colour & material up close.

Some history about the design process of the armchair:

In the past we have stocked at Roomscape original vintage Marco Zanuso armchairs. As originals are difficult to come by and often there are issues with condition, we arranged to have this model newly made with some design variations for contemporary living (such as improving size & organic shape, comfort & new type of legs), but in the style of Zanuso. Working with local craftsman in Italy using traditional methods to exact specifications and quality materials, each armchair has a quality solid wooden frame.The frame sits on 4 removable handmade solid polished brass legs that screw to the frame. Each leg is in solid brass and has the top portion made as a plate, with four holes to screw to the sofa giving great stability to the piece. The matching footstool completes the set and follows the same principles in design.

Packing is offered free of charge. We take special professional care while packing. The frames will be wrapped in several layers of bubblewrapp/foam/cardboard and a final layer of cellophane for safe transport. If necessary the legs can be easily unscrewed from both pieces and packed separately in a box. This armchair & footstool can be safely packed in a box for export and economically shipped by a courier like Fedex.

Height of the armchair seat from the floor is 41 cm.

Sergio Guazzelli worked as an Architect and Interior Designer in Argentina. In 1990, he moved to Rome, where he developed and diversified his talents. The 'Eternal City' ignited his interest in antiques, leading to a Diploma in Antiques & Fine Arts. As architecture embraced art; antiques found a place in his designs.

In 1993, Sergio opened his first antiques showroom in Rome, with a second seasonal shop in Ponza, an island close to Capri. The island spirit, with her international clients, influenced his eclectic style. Following features in several magazines, Sergio established his own art & antiques publication. As a part of this, Sergio regularly visited and reported on leading European Auction Houses. It was London's art & antique scene, which drew Sergio.

In 1999, Sergio opened with his partner, Blair Thorburn, their London shop, Roomscape Vintage Furniture, in the historic Horse Hospital at The Stables Market in Camden Town. It was here that they became one of the first to propose vintage Scandinavian style to the London market. Moving forward at the beginning of the Millennium, Roomscape proposed further styles such as Hollywood Regency & Modernist glam.

Roomscape’s adventurous approach brought them to the attention of decorators including a collaboration of the launch of Liberty’s Fourth-Floor Furniture Department in 2006. Decorators not only appreciated the style but also the quality of pieces. With a wide range of contacts and 25 years of experience, Sergio & Blair source stock from abroad as well as trade fairs, private clients and auctions houses. Roomscape searches for pieces in good condition and gentle restoration is done to bring the piece to the best original vintage condition. Each piece is researched with historical detail fully presented on the website.

In 2009, Roomscape moved from a ‘traditional’ shop to a larger showroom with a stronger online presence reaching global destinations. The ‘By Appointment’ Showroom allows customers, both the trade and the public, to have the full 75m² space all to themselves for as long as they want and have a coffee with the boys. Moving from a shop has allowed a more attention to buying and sourcing abroad. It has certainly helped that Sergio is fluent in five languages.

2010 was the year Roomscape worked in partnership with Mary Portas' Living & Giving shops furnishing the Notting Hill & Primrose Hill stores. This collaboration proved charity shopping can be socially responsible, exciting and stylish at the same time. ‘Socially’ responsible in other ways, Roomscape has sourced vintage pieces for the entertainment industry such as The Union Club in Soho, London. The Union is a well established private members club and one of the first to furnish their club with vintage pieces. Most notable is their collection of Sciolari Chandeliers from Roomscape.

In 2010 Roomscape launched a great selection of 20th Century Art, mostly British artists, from the likes of Terry Frost, Richard Smith, Patrick Heron, John Piper, Victor Pasmore, Patrick Proctor, Stephen Buckey, Brendan Neiland, Patrick Caulfield and many others.

Introducing a hire service in 2011, Roomscape moved fast into Fashion, supplying Fresh Film, Cutler and Gross luxury eyeware , Elle Decoration magazine, Agent Provocateur, Miss Sixty & Bulgari

Just in time for Christmas 2012 Roomscape launched a Vintage Jewellery Collection with rare American pieces from the 1940's & 1950's, such as Trifari, Coro Craft, HAR, Renoir & Matisse, Christian Lacroix and Dior.
