the marie antoinette-style seating is compact, fit for even the smallest corners — classified for use at a dressing table. despite its size, ‘tonella’ is incredible sturdy and versatile. its comfort can be attributed to the moulded polyurethane foam used in the formation of its back and arms; upholstered in fabric or leather. the exterior of the design features a quilted effect, following the line’s of a barrel — a reference to sancal’s yecla location, and the presence of the wooden drums in this wine-growing region in southern spain; with the supporting metal framework of ‘tonella’ reminiscent of barrel staves.
