Have the best seats in your own house

When de­sign­ing a space, con­sider how the mood flows from one room to an­other, from in­doors to out­doors. With de­signs by Rodolfo Dor­doni, Minotti’s artis­tic di­rec­tor, putting to­gether a liv­ing space no mat­ter your aes­thetic pref­er­ence be­comes eas­ier, as Minotti has chairs that are ideal for small spa­ces and so­fas that can act as cen­ter­pieces of liv­ing rooms. With the way the col­lec­tions are de­signed, putting dis­parate items to­gether can still cre­ate a seam­less look and flow in any space.

Free­man Seat­ing Sys­tem

The Free­man Du­vet is the epit­ome of soft­ness, as its seat cush­ions have a core insert made of polyurethane that is wrapped in mem­ory foam pad­ding and then fi­nally cov­ered with a layer of soft down. If you plan to use the Du­vet for read­ing and re­lax­ing, a head­rest and lum­bar cush­ions can be put in place for more sup­port.

Made for more in­ti­mate gath­er­ings and mo­ments of re­lax­ation, the Tai­lor of­fers a more dy­namic way to dec­o­rate a space. Th­ese are one-piece seats with top­stitch­ing that give a more graphic feel. Un­like the Du­vet, the seats are out­fit­ted with wing back­rests and arm­rests cov­ered with polyurethane foam. Not only do th­ese wings add sup­port but they also give the Tai­lor a vis­ual light­ness, com­ple­ment­ing the other el­e­ments of the Free­man Seat­ing Sys­tem.

Creed Col­lec­tion

The Large arm­chair has a curved back­rest but with big­ger pro­por­tions. The front of this chair sits on fixed legs made of solid Su­cu­pira wood stained with a Mink-col­ored fin­ish. What makes this seat dif­fer­ent is that the back rests on a curved metal sup­port with a glossy, light bronze-painted fin­ish.

An­other op­tion for lounge ar­eas is the Lounge lit­tle arm­chair. It has slen­der turned legs that come in two fin­ishes: solid Su­cu­pira wood stained with a Mink fin­ish or solid ash with open-pore moka-lac­quered fin­ish.The height of this chair was de­signed specif­i­cally to match Minotti’s lounge ta­bles.

Minotti Out­door Col­lec­tion

Ideal for a pa­tio set­ting, the In­di­ana se­ries em­pha­sizes the qual­ity of solid iroko, a warm and ver­sa­tile wood that can be sculpted to re­veal dif­fer­ent shapes. The se­ries con­sists of dif­fer­ent pieces from so­fas to ot­tomans, all with in­tri­cate, hand­crafted dove­tail joints and fin­ish­ing de­tails that are avail­able in both nat­u­ral iroko and a dark brown-stained fin­ish. The pieces in this se­ries are raised off the floor through alu­minum caps in­serted into the wooden base. Back­rests and arm­rests, which are avail­able in Bam­boo, Stone, and Moka colors, are cov­ered with macro wo­ven polypropy­lene web­bing.
