These lounge chairs and sofa are completely moulded out of foam and covered with folded black, thick butter-soft leatherette. One of the mean traits of these chairs is their comfortable sitting comfort. Piumino, meaning downwards, is used as a title to reference to the downwards stretching leather.
The leatherette is in good condition and shows signs of age and use, mainly near the stitches there are some signs of wear.
