This Chic Furniture Line Joins Textile, Rattan, and Bentwood

Inspired by a self-described fusion of tradition and experimental approaches to materials and techniques, Danish-Italian design studio GamFratesi's new line of furniture—the "Targa" sofa, "Morris" dining chairs, and "Allegory" desk with chair—exemplifies a marriage of the classic and the avant-garde. Made for Gebrüder Thonet, these pieces combine the comfort of upholstery with the sleek appeal of rounded, steam-bent wood, adding a dash of Viennese woven-cane as a decorative flourish for seat-backs and rear surfacing. The line was originally unveiled at this spring's Salone del Mobile.
