The 'Unusual Soft Marble Armchair' by Maurizio Galante dares to push design boundaries with a clever concept that provides aesthetics and comfort. This bold chair, designed for Italian manufacturer Cerruti Baleri, is entitled Louis XV goes to Sparta.

Resembling a marble-made construction, this chair appears stiff and stone cold but proves that looks can be deceiving. Featuring a soft polyurethane seating cushion and 100% silk upholstered cover, this beautiful seat is both glamorous and witty in its design. Silk upholstery features a photo print of marble, giving the illusion of the real stone material.

The piece is both comfortable and glamorous, paying homage to the baroque art movement and instating itself as a dynamic focal point in any space it inhabits. This vibrant chair is available in three varying marble designs that include Carrara, Portasanta and Grande Antico.
