De­signer An­to­nio Cit­te­rio, 2005. De­tails Happy chaise longue, from ap­prox £4,380, Flex­form. Back­ground We know we’d feel more than a lit­tle over­joyed to be re­clin­ing on An­to­nio Cit­te­rio’s el­e­gant chaise longue, vino rosso in hand. Chan­nelling mod­ern Made in Italy so­phis­ti­ca­tion, the Happy chaise longue has a low metal frame with leather laces stretched across in a loose weave and is a per­fetto ex­am­ple of the kind of fine Ital­ian crafts­man­ship we know to ex­pect from the en­dur­ing 40-year de­sign part­ner­ship be­tween Flex­form and Cit­te­rio. The cush­ions are filled with goose down and up­hol­stered in a choice of first-class fab­rics, from cash­mere to linen and vel­vet, plus there’s a bonus bol­ster cush­ion that’s there to be po­si­tioned at whim. An­to­nio ‘gen­tle­man of de­sign’ Cit­te­rio’s smooth trans­la­tion of Flex­form’s com­mit­ment to clean lines, clas­sic sil­hou­ettes and luxe com­fort has hit the mark once again. Wher­ever this chaise is po­si­tioned – Tus­can villa, Floren­tine ap­par­ta­mento or back home in Blighty – we de­clare it our happy place.
