New shapes, new materials and finishes: there are many new Bontempi Casa Living Collection 2021 products arriving among tables, chairs and furnishing accessories, the result of our constant desire for renewal. After the very first previews we had already revealed some of them, and today we continue with the presentations.

The Bridge table

Among the novelties of the year, a leading role can only be played by the tables, which have always been an important focus of Bontempi Casa production. Some iconic models are renewed in shape and finishes, and several new designs make their debut, including Bridge.

Bridge table

Its design is characterized by the particular trestle structure, a timeless and always current line, enriched by decorative details that can be chosen in different colors to create the combination that best suits your furnishing style, ranging from classic black and gold to bolder touches. Bridge can become an elegant dining table, but it also lends itself perfectly to being placed in professional environments as a representative desk.

Chantal and Drop charis

An inevitable complement around any table, the seats can add a distinctive touch to the furniture by reinforcing its style or by introducing light contrasting elements, in terms of lines or textures and colors. Among the new proposals introduced this year, we will tell you about two with a soft and enveloping character.

The wide and enveloping seat of the Chantal chair offers unique comfort, enhanced to the maximum by the soft materials in which it can be upholstered, including premium leather, waterproof nubuck and velvet. Definitely versatile in design and functionality, it is available with five different types of base – in solid wood or lacquered steel, fixed or swivel, with or without wheels – and also in the stool version: thus it can be placed in any type of environment, from the kitchen to the office.

Drop chair

The made in Italy sartorial style finds expression in the drapery on the back of the Drop chair, whose enveloping shape evokes the sensation of an embrace that invites you to stop and relax to enjoy the beauty of the moment. Also in this case it is an extremely versatile seat, whose base is available in four variants, one in solid wood and the others in lacquered steel.

The Charlotte bookcase

Modern bookcases are not just containers. Just think of how many things, in addition to books, make a fine show of themselves from the shelves of an open bookcase, transforming it into a collection of design objects, photographs and travel memories, small plants, flowers and much more: in short, it becomes the frame of the most expensive items.

The Bontempi Casa proposal is enriched in this area with the Charlotte bookcase, modular and achievable with wall or ceiling fixing. The attention to detail makes it a design piece capable of giving an extra touch to the furniture, while the modular shelves allow maximum flexibility and customization.

Blow and Circle lamps

In a modern home, the choice of space lighting is essential to outline the style of furniture. There are ideal lamps for every room, and the Bontempi Casa 2021 catalog offers many new ideas in this sense

Spring is coming, the days are starting to get longer and the milder temperatures tempt us to get back on the move. Spring is the season of awakening: are we ready to open the doors to its positive energy? It is the ideal time to renovate your home and bring a breath of freshness into the house. There is no need to change everything, a few well-designed interventions are enough to bring Spring inside. So, how to renovate the house in Spring?

Renewing your home in Spring with colours

No more Winter greyness, green light for new colours to renovate the house in Spring. From walls to textiles passing through decorative elements and furnishing accessories, there are so many solutions to use colours to refresh the environment. The first thing to do is to evaluate the type of intervention (and investment) you want to carry on.

Renewing your home in Spring
Linda chair with steel structure completely covered in leather.

This is the ideal season to paint the walls, why not taking advantage of it? The ideal shades are pastel or sorbet, fresh and modern. Alternatively, wallpaper is back in fashion and allows to range between a large number of effects, from minimalist patterns to more daring decorative ones to create scenographic walls. It is not necessary to dare the total look, on the contrary: even by choosing a single room or a single wall, the effect is guaranteed.

Even the fabrics can give many ideas to refresh the furniture. Curtains, tablecloths and seat coverings are in fact useful elements to punctuate the environment with colour and renew its appearance. Colorful chairs in the kitchen, a new carpet and a few colorful pillows on the sofas, floral patterned curtains or sheets for the sleeping area are just a few suggestions for bringing Spring into the house.

Spring decor to renovate your home

In your home renovation project, also include some targeted purchases to give new life to the environments. Coloured tables and chairs but also tables and coffee tables can in fact prove to be very useful for enjoying the good weather.

A table with a minimal design that is easy to move is the ideal ally for extemporary lunches on the veranda or under the porch. The living room, on the other hand, will be ready for Spring with the addition of one or more low tables on which to place magazines, drinks and snacks to enjoy some carefree relaxation. Practical and multitasking, they will always be able to indulge the inspiration of the moment by performing various functions throughout the day.

A touch of green to renovate the house

Plants not only decorate and brighten the environment, but also make the air more breathable. There are no real rules for enhancing the environment with plants and flowers, if not the basic ones of harmony between proportions and colours.

How to renovate the house

Among the most popular houseplants at the moment are potos or pothos. Definitely easy to grow, they easily tolerate conditions such as high temperatures, dry air and prolonged drought, giving their beautiful glossy leaves as well to the most casual gardeners. Even if you don’t have a green thumb, try to renovate the environment with one of these plants and you will see: even the house blooms in Spring!

New shapes, new materials and finishes: there are many new products in the Bontempi Casa Living Collection 2021 arriving among tables, chairs and furnishing accessories, the result of our constant desire for renewal. Today we begin to reveal a few…

The Delta table

Often at the center of the scene, the tables play a leading role in the daily management of domestic spaces and represent an important focus in the production of Bontempi Casa. They are also protagonists among the novelties of 2021, with new designs and different iconic models ready to be renewed in shapes, materials and finishes. Among the new entries, today we reveal the Delta model, refined and versatile.

Delta table
Delta table with lacquered steel structure and barrel top in SuperMarble. Margot chairs with solid wood base, monocoque with or without armrests, padded and upholstered in velvet. Spark pendant lamp with canopy, natural brass structure and six borosilicate glasses.

Its structure is characterized by geometric lines that take up the theme of the table with crossed legs, reinterpreting it with lightness and with precious details that underline its strong personality. In lacquered steel, it can be declined with different finishes ranging from antique brass to gold through black and white, matt or glossy. The Delta table then takes on different faces and can be inserted in any context depending on whether you choose the rectangular or barrel-shaped top in wood, crystal, SuperMarble or SuperCeramic: many possible variations as proof of its great versatility.

New finishes: pink gold and Sand and Savoy Gray SuperCeramic

Research on materials has always been one of the cornerstones of Bontempi Casa business, that over the years has developed innovative solutions to ensure optimal performance of its design. Among these is SuperCeramic, elevating the characteristics of traditional ceramic by combining maximum strength and inalterability with minimum thickness to create durable and functional tables.

Not only performance but also aesthetics: SuperCeramic satisfies the eye with a delicate texture that is also appreciated to the touch, and this year it is renewed with two new finishes to be applied to different tables in the Bontempi Casa catalog. Sabbia is a discreet and refined variant, while Savoia Gray recreates the effect of natural stone thanks to bush hammering, a particular process that gives the material an absolutely authentic look.

Artistico table
Artistico table with rose gold lacquered steel structure and SuperMarble top.

The lacquered steel that serves as the base for tables and chairs, on the other hand, is enriched with a new and sophisticated rose gold finish. Obtained thanks to numerous experiments with color mixes, it is precious and delicate at the same time to be able to elegantly fit into any context. Its brightness enhances the shapes and discreetly emphasizes the details of the structures.

The Dada and Shape chairs

Indispensable accessories for every room in the house, the seats also contribute to defining the style of furniture and the way of living the spaces proper to each one: they can add touches of inspiration and color in a minimalist environment, or bring back rigor around a table from the richer design… Among the new proposals for the year that has just begun, we reveal two with a decidedly different character.

Dada chair Bontempi Casa
Dada chair with rose gold lacquered steel frame and padded shell covered in Mambo fabric.

Rounded lines draw the Dada chair, soft and seductive, with a retro charm that recalls the elegant silhouettes of the 1950s but also the creativity of Dadaism, a visionary artistic movement of the 1920s. Inspirations that are updated thanks to current know-how to give life to a seat, with or without armrests, which can be dressed in a wide range of fabrics and colors.

Shape chair Bontempi Casa

With a diametrically opposite character, Shape is a seat with square lines and a light and rigorous design. A timeless classic, it is available with or without armrests to complement any environment and any context – from domestic to office – bringing a touch of elegance with the quality of its materials.

The Ray coffee table and the Spark lamp

In a modern home, the style of furniture can be recognized (also) from the accessories, such as coffee tables and lighting. The coffee table is a discreet protagonist of the living area, capable of clearly expressing the attitude of those who choose it, just like the lamps: and here are two other novelties for 2021.

Ray coffee table Bontempi Casa
Ray coffee table with steel structure and crystal top.

The design of the Ray coffee table takes inspiration from the light, whose asymmetrical structure recalls the propagation of light rays, while the glass top creates beautiful games of light that embellish the environment. It is available in three different sizes with which to compose the most suitable combination for your space, creating the ideal support surface for moments of relaxation and more.

Spark pendant lamp Bontempi Casa

Crystal is the absolute protagonist in the design of the Spark suspension lamp, extremely modern and versatile, available in the configuration as a chandelier or with single or cluster stems. Like flying saucers, its spheres plow through the air and diffuse a lively and intense light.

The news do not end here: stay tuned on the Bontempi Casa channels to discover the next ones.

Essential accessories for the kitchen and living room as well as for the sleeping area, chairs are also used by design lovers to define the style of a corner or as a contrasting element to enliven the environment. They reveal a lot of the personality of those who choose them, of their style but also of their way of living the house. For those who love good design, Bontempi Casa’s made in Italy chairs can only be at the top of the wish list for furniture. Quality of raw materials, attention to detail and innate elegance characterize each model, from the classics to the most original and modern ones. In the catalog of the Ancona-based company there are in fact chairs with soft and sinuous lines such as Margot but also the bright colors of the iconic Galaxy in polypropylene, the modern elegance of Penelope and Freak, the functionality of the models for the outdoors and much more.

Margot chairs
Margot chair with base in solid walnut, monocoque with armrests, padded and covered in waterproof nabuk.

How to use made in Italy chairs to immediately make a home environment warmer and more welcoming? Materials such as solid wood and the fabrics with which the Margot chair can be upholstered are an excellent starting point. Its enveloping lines do the rest, especially in the version with armrests. Comfortable and welcoming, for the waterproof nubuck, ecological leather and premium leather covers, it is also available in a version with a quilted backrest – a style detail particularly suitable for furnishing the sleeping area.

Freak stackable chair
Freak stackable chair with lacquered steel structure, available for indoor and outdoor.

From the warmth of wood we move on to the modernity of lacquered steel, characterizing the Penelope and Freak chairs. The geometric and intriguing design on the seat and back makes Freak a model that lends itself to different styles of furniture, from industrial chic to the most refined minimalism, also thanks to its many color variations. Its look is then completed with the matching padded cushion, with which to create your favorite color combination.

Penelope chair
Penelope chair with lacquered steel structure, padded and upholstered in velvet.

The Penelope chair is also composed of a lacquered steel structure available in different colors, while the seat and back are padded and upholstered in a wide variety of materials, from velvet to premium leather. What detail makes the difference in defining the style of these made in Italy chairs? The central button of the backrest, that can be customized with matching or contrasting shades.

Galaxy stackable chair
Galaxy stackable chair with integral structure in polypropylene and recyclable glass fiber.

Another iconic model from the Bontempi Casa catalog is dedicated to those looking for modernity in made in Italy chairs, namely the Galaxy chair in polypropylene and glass fiber. It is part of the trend of chairs in plastic materials that in the last twenty years has also had great success in Italian design, and is noted for the geometric design of the backrest and for a color palette that truly meets all tastes with original colors such as mustard yellow, caramel and powder blue alongside the classic white, black and gray. Another feature that makes it stand out among the made in Italy chairs is its great versatility: solid, light and easy to clean, it is perfect as a kitchen chair or for the dining room, to give a touch of color to the living area or for decorating the garden.

These are just a few examples: in the Bontempi Casa catalog there are truly made in Italy chairs for all tastes and needs. To discover all the customization possibilities, all that remains to do it is to try the configurator and unleash the imagination.

Wanted Modern Kitchen Chairs. The chairs we choose for the kitchen speak of us and our way of living the house and above all conviviality. Those who experience lunch or dinner as a ritual will tend to favor the comfort of the seats, while those who often find themselves eating meals on the fly between one appointment and the other will rather focus on functionality. And then there are those who make improvisation a lifestyle, even in the kitchen, and will prefer light chairs, perhaps even folding ones in order to transform a solitary dinner into a last minute chat with friends. Here’s how to choose the right chairs for every kitchen.

Modern and light kitchen chairs

When furnishing the kitchen, you generally want to create a warm and comfortable environment, but one that is also functional for everyday activities. This is why modern kitchen chairs must be able to combine design and practicality. A particularly important aspect is the lightness of the chairs, to ensure maximum freedom of movement: it often happens that you have to move them while you are preparing food, as well as cleaning.

Seventy chair
Seventy chair with structure in lacquered or chromed steel, padded monocoque and covered in ecological leather and hide.

The Seventy chair has vintage and decidedly minimal lines, starting from the slender steel structure. The seat consists of an enveloping padded monocoque for greater comfort, to be declined in a wide range of colors to match any environment.

Polo chair
Polo chair with lacquered steel structure, polypropylene backrest and wooden seat.

The backrest of the Polo chairs is also enveloping, the design of which still remains in the name of maximum lightness. Available both as kitchen chairs and as stools for the peninsula, they can be an excellent furnishing solution to create continuity between the kitchen with island and the dining room.

POKET folding chair
Poket folding chair with seat and back in polypropylene.

Space-saving and versatile, the Poket folding chair has little to envy to other kitchen chairs in terms of design and comfort. And when not needed, it is easy to store it and keep everything in order with the wall hook or the special trolley available in the Bontempi Casa catalog.

Kitchen chairs in wood or polypropylene

Another factor to consider when choosing kitchen chairs is that of materials, always combining aesthetics and functionality. The ideal materials for modern kitchen chairs are those that guarantee solidity and impact resistance, but also easy maintenance, especially in the event of stains. Wood is a classic choice, it emphasizes the warmth of the environment and never tires, while polypropylene is suitable to younger and more modern kitchens.

KATE chair
Kate chair with solid wood legs, cross-shaped support in lacquered steel and wooden monocoque.

Minimalism is the hallmark of the Kate chair, all in oak or walnut. The structure is slender but solid, also thanks to the cross support, while the seat has decidedly essential lines. It is also available with a padded and quilted cushion, to be chosen in fabrics such as ecological leather or waterproof nubuck – the most suitable for a kitchen chair.

Galaxy chair
Galaxy chair with integral structure in polypropylene and recyclable glass fiber. Mago extendable console table with lacquered steel structure and glass top.

More pop is the design of the Galaxy chair in polypropylene and glass fiber, characterized by the unmistakable geometric pattern on the back. Available in different colors including white, dusty blue and mustard yellow, in case of stains it can be easily cleaned with a damp cloth.

Design kitchen table and chairs

Last but not least, the harmony between the kitchen table and chairs must be taken into consideration. The most modern furnishing trends recommend avoiding rigidity in favor of greater freedom of choice: even a single detail of the design is enough to tie them to have a pleasant effect. More often the chairs are combined with other furnishing elements that characterize the environment, for example by choosing the seats in the same color as the kitchen top.

Italy is usually at the bottom of the European ranking as a home-working favourable country. However, Italians are the best when it comes to making the most out of an unfavourable situation. After the measures put in place to counter the spread of Coronavirus, many Italians have been transformed into smart workers. This work method can be advantageous for both companies and workers and there are those who believe that it will continue to be applied after the emergency will be over. Now we must stay home but meanwhile we can learn how to be efficient and happy working remotely and this may help us also in the future.

While working from home, we create a new daily routine. Time and space change, as well as the way of relating with colleagues. It is advisable to set up a timetable and try to keep your work schedule as much similar as it used to be. Now we save some time not having to travel to the office, so we can use that time to take care of ourselves, doing online yoga or fitness classes, or simply spending quality time with family. We should also remember to take a break during the working day, have a proper lunch, and try to have a balance between work and personal life.

Another important aspect of the remote work method is not wearing pyjamas all day! Let’s wear something comfortable that makes us feel good but also professional. It may seem like a minor detail, but indeed it is one of the easiest ways to incentive concentration and productivity. Also, you could fall asleep after lunch if you are still wearing your pyjamas…

Smart working

It is crucial to set up a well-organized workplace. If you have a desk or a console table you are already well underway, but a dining table will also be fine. Clear the table of any items that you don’t need (and that could be a distraction) and find space for everything you need to carry on your activities. For example, laptop, notebook, pens, documents etc. If you like, you could also print a nice picture of yourself with your family and friends and keep it on the desk. It may be a good symbol of the good times that will soon get back.

Speaking of chairs now, as you will spend many hours of your days sitting at a desk in your house, it is crucial choosing a comfortable chair. The best are chairs that have a solid back but a padded seat so you can feel comfy while you work. You can also use your bedroom’s chair if you created the workplace in the sleeping area; otherwise a soft armchair in the living room is also fine.

Video calls will be a consistent part of your day to communicate with colleagues, customers and suppliers. So, don’t forget to look after your image – if you put on nice clothes and some makeup you will feel better yourself and you will look more professional. Also, keep an eye on what’s behind you, as people can see it. Make sure the bookcase is well-organized, put on the wall pictures and posters you like. These will be your best business card right now.

Let’s all keep in mind that these difficult times will pass, but now we can learn something from the situation. Working remotely is useful and it may be in the future as well.

My plane got delayed. I am at the airport, looking for a captivating book that will keep me company during the journey. In the meantime, I call the hotel to advise of my arrival in the late afternoon. I can’t wait to rest, drink a glass of wine at the top floor Cafe – it’s so elegant.

I will move to the hotel’s coworking area tomorrow morning: last week I worked very well there, it is a large room illuminated by natural light and has interesting design lamps. There are many tables and the blue chairs are very comfortable.

Finally, we take off.

I enter the hall, my suitcases are taken to my room, while I go directly to the top floor. The bar is just as I remembered it: golden profiles, precious crystal glasses, comfortable upholstered seats that are covered in soft white velvet. I sip my glass of wine in peace. After all, it’s not bad at all to travel for work. But later I must prepare those documents for the presentation…

It’s 9 pm, dinner at the hotel has fully satisfied me. Time to get busy now…

Fortunately, there is room service, so here it is my hot black coffee. I sip it slowly and enjoy the view of the hotel over the city: moving lights, a lake, many buildings. It always relaxes me to work like this. I put the cup on the coffee table next to the sofa – I stroke its wooden surface. The brass-coloured lacquered metal structure is truly contemporary in taste.

It’s morning. I always liked waking up to the light that comes in naturally, and the scent of clean, new, white and precious linen. Today’s presentation is ready, just a couple of details need to be defined, but I will do it after breakfast.

The hotel room used for breakfast is my favourite, indeed. There is a large window from where you can see the lake and the trees ahead. I take a seat right next to the window. In the room there are other business people, families and couples. Here is an orange juice and a soft croissant – that’s exactly what it takes to start the day just fine.

contract table and chairs

The meeting went well. I take a farewell drink at the bar on the top floor, I greet the staff whom I now know well. I read a few pages of the book I bought at the airport, comfortably seated on this cloud made of white velvet. Okay, off we go now. Till next week, my dear hotel.

After all, it’s not that bad to spend these days at home. We can definitely find some positive aspects in the invitation to remain home for stopping the health emergency related to Coronavirus. Bars and shops closed, offices turned their activities into smart working, streets became empty and silent. The daily frenzy is quickly forgotten, so it’s time to rediscover the pleasure of spending days at home and brushing up on those activities that you never find time for. Let’s keep a positive attitude!

Clara stools
Clara stools with metal structure, fully padded and upholstered shell, quilted backrest.

To start a day on the right foot, why not to choose a good healthy and slow breakfast? What for many is a pleasure on Sundays only can become a daily joy over this period. A good freshly squeezed orange juice, toasted and buttered bread or a slice of cake baked by yourself and your children… Isn’t your mouth already watering?

In the kitchen we can devote ourselves to all those recipes that satisfy the taste but require time and patience, or experiment by letting ourselves be inspired by blogs and magazines. Let’s whet our appetite with pictures, let’s put ourselves in the kitchen and don’t neglect the mise en place, so we’ll give a special flavour to every meal enjoyed at home. We can also keep the rituals of our social life by translating them into the domestic reality: we prepare a delicious aperitif and chat with friends over a video call, we prepare Sunday lunches and we share photos of our recipes in the family chat.

Artistico coffee table

Now that we can put aside the daily frenzy, it’s time to let our imagination run wild and maybe do some thinking. We can feed our thoughts with good readings: we can pick up all those books that have been waiting for us on the bedside table for months (if we really want to read them) or have fun with something lighter. To find inspiration, we could also take advantage of free time to tide up our bookcases: there are those grouping books by genre and those doing it in strict alphabetical order by title or author, but also those who arrange them by colour … What suits you best?

Lexington bookcase
Lexington bookcase with lacquered Metal frame.

Mens sana in corpore sano, the Latins used to say, and we should not forget it. Without going to the gym, we can keep working out in our living room. On Youtube there are many video tutorials with simple exercises to do at home even without specific tools, perhaps using a chair or the sofa (try and type “train on the sofa”, you will see). This can become a good habit to mark the days without getting bored.

Enea sideboard and Strega floor lamp

Another nice activity is tiding up the closets and preparing them for a seasonal change. We follow the advice of famous Marie Kondo or other experts, and we try to arrange clothes and accessories in the drawers of our sideboards in a different way: we could discover new ways to optimize space and refresh our wardrobe. Do you also see the first buds on the tree branches outside your windows? Spring is coming, let’s get ready!

Sitting in good company around the dining table is one of the greatest pleasures we can give ourselves in everyday life, but if the chairs are not beautiful, practical and comfortable… What kind of pleasure is it? Whether the dining table is placed in the kitchen or in the living room, the choice of dining table chairs is a detail that plays an important role in defining the environment and giving character to the furniture. Today, in fact, the kitchen is more often an open space that communicates with the rest of the house, and the chairs can represent a common thread in the preparation of the different rooms. Having overcome the old diktats regarding the combination of chairs and dining tables, then, the modern furnishing provides for many more free and creative combinations than in the past.

How to match chairs to the dining table

Today, it is common to buy chairs separately from the table, even choosing different styles, between classic and contemporary. Different chairs can also be placed altogether, because they are linked by a common element that can be style, material or colour. In the Bontempi Casa catalogue there are many options to create the combination that best reflects your taste.

Sedie e tavolo da pranzo
Cruz extendable table with metal structure and veneered wooden top. Chairs with trellis structure in lacquered metal, back in polypropylene and wooden seat.

An ideal example of furnishing accessories that help to create a common thread between the kitchen and the living area is the Polo seating family. The different variants of the metal structure correspond to the chromatic variations of the polypropylene backrest, while the wooden seat can be covered by a wide range of fabrics. Polo chairs with trellis structure have been positioned around the Cruz dining table, while the stool version is the most modern solution to complete a kitchen with a central island.

Sedie per cucina Bontempi Casa

Chairs for modern kitchens are comfortable as well as practical and functional, light enough to be moved without any difficulty in case you want to add a place at the table, or to reach the highest shelves. The material is also very important, it must be impact resistant and easily washable. Seventy chair is the perfect synthesis of these characteristics: it has an essential-shaped metal structure and it is covered with ecological leather or leather. The black variant of Seventy chair perfectly matches the structure of Genio table and a piece of furniture with strong personality.

A modern and very popular choice is also to use the stools as kitchen chairs combined with the snack top that is part of the central island. Among the many colour variations of Linda stool, covered in leather, there is certainly the ideal shade for the furnishing of your kitchen!

Once upon a time there was a sofa made of nubuck, the object of desire for every bourgeois salon. Elegant and refined, with a velvety touch making it cosy and pleasant, while a light lived-in effect gives a vintage allure and a sense of uniqueness.

“How to clean nubuck?” this is the question that often comes out before making this choice, because nubuck in nature is a particularly delicate material, that cannot be treated with oils or detergents of any kind, so any stains are difficult to be removed completely.

Research and development are constant factors in the furnishing industry, and apply to materials used as coatings for sofas, chairs and other accessories as well. The nubuck, for example, is reinterpreted by Bontempi Casa as waterproof nubuck, a synthetic material that surprisingly recreates the soft and velvety finish of the leather with this manufacturing process and lends itself to a decidedly simpler maintenance.

It is in fact subjected to a water-repellent treatment that guarantees easy cleaning, making Bontempi Casa furniture in waterproof nubuck suitable for every use in every room of the house, including the kitchen, without any worries.

The waterproof nubuck chairs for the kitchen and the dining room

Around the dining room table, but also in the kitchen, the padded chairs upholstered in waterproof nubuck give an elegant touch to the environment. With its minimal design, the Aida chair immediately creates a sophisticated yet relaxed atmosphere. It is available in beige and, if combined with a table with a wooden top, it is a truly elegant choice.

How to clean waterproof nubuck if it gets dirty with some fruit juice? Simply use a sponge dampened with cold water. If, on the other hand, the stains are coffee or chocolate, better dab with lukewarm water.

When a chair is placed in the sleeping area, various functions are expected: sitting to tie shoelaces, reading a book or some messages on the smartphone, placing clothes and bags that must be worn again the day after. The Clara armchair has a delicate design, a classic structure and a soft seat covered in waterproof nubuck to choose from a wide colour palette, with the details of the border to pick in a contrast shade.

Have you lit some scented candles and a few drops of wax ended up on your chair? To clean the waterproof nubuck, in this case, you will have to gently remove the wax with a spatula or a blunt knife and then remove the last residues with a cloth dampened with a specific solvent for dry cleaning.

Even in the digital era, ink stains can occur. How to clean the waterproof nubuck to make the chairs come back like they were new? The solution is gently dabbing with a cloth dampened with alcohol.
