the complex art of weaving has resulted in a distinctive aesthetic for varaschin’s ‘emma’ collection, which the bergère armchair exemplifies as its icon. the highly visible backrests of the furniture accentuate the attractive, minimal but comforting shape. at the same time, due to its open structure, the designs evoke an elegant and refined style that suits a wide range of settings.



the functionality and versatility of the collection is as strong as its affection to tradition and style. as well as being suited for both indoor and outdoor use, the furniture is available in a wide range of options and finishes to help them adapt to contemporary living spaces. numerous combinations of seats, legs and backrests, including a padded seat with distinctive stitching and legs in painted aluminum or solid iroko wood, lend to designs that offer many personalities. significantly, it is these characteristics that enable the pieces to respond to various formal needs and personal tastes, and fit any type of situation or mood.
