The set has been reupholstered in beautiful woven silk fabric featuring red flowers on a beige background from a celebrated Italian fabric house. The comfortable soft feather cushion fills the armchair. This set would bring an elegant feel to a living room, placed near a fireplace or opposite a sofa, or situated in a bedroom as a reading nook.
