Massimo and Lella Vignelli for Poltronova, 'Saratoga' three-seat sofa, polyester lacquer and black leather, Italy, 1964

This three-seat sofa named 'Saratoga' is designed by Italian designer couple Lella & Massimo Vignelli. The Vignelli's were known for their clear designs, this piece is therefore also completely free from decorative details. All attention goes to the essential form and material in this design by Vignelli. The “Saratoga” is one of the first examples of modular and modern living in twentieth century. In their own words: “We have designed this sofa because we really needed a sofa. And the sofa wanted was one with an architectural character rather that a soft, smooth object. A sofa that could be set out in the middle of the room. We didn’t want it to be pushed up against the walls; we wanted it to move around as needed.” We have multiple pieces by Vignelli and can provide upholstery and different colors of the frame according to your own wishes.

The leather on this piece shows signs of age and use. If you are interested to reupholster the sofa, our in-house atelier would gladly customize the pieces following your own wishes. Please ask our advisors for more information about the almost endless possibilities for reupholstery that our atelier has to offer. The professional and experienced craftsmen in our in-house atelier are specialists in the reupholstery of design furniture. With high attention for the original, they make sure every piece retains its value.

Please note that the lacquer shows signs of age and use and also scratched which need restoration before shipping.
