Designed by Jean-Marie Massaud for Poltrona Frau, the In the Mood seating system was conceived to allow fabric and leather express themselves as expanses of soft and welcoming surfaces. A strongly horizontal design for a sofa of sophisticated simplicity that wears both finishes with consummate sartorial elegance.
The large padded surfaces and minimalist, almost elementary, design of the In the Mood sofa are particularly successful at bringing out the beauty of the upholstery, in fine Pelle Frau* leather or in numerous patterns of fabrics and splendid shades of ColorSphere®. The characteristic sleekness of the feet projected towards the centre of the seat creates a dynamic tension that exudes energy and lightness. Sartorial stitching details, typical of Poltrona Frau’s history in upholstery, are given a contemporary twist, like the leather or fabric piping that defines the edges of the sofa. The In the Mood seating system is available in numerous two or three-seater combinations. These can be enhanced with a curved 45° element that breaks up the classic rigidity of the angular configurations, and with three different types of armrest.
The frame of the In the Mood sofa is in tubular metal with interwoven elastic belts. The padding is in variable density CFC-free polyurethane foam and pressed felt. The backrests and armrests are made from birch plywood and hardboard panels with padding in polyurethane foam and polyester wadding. The seat cushions are padded with goose down and polyester wadding with stabilising polyurethane foam insert. The backrest cushions are padded in firmus with separate horizontal chambers to distinguish the various areas of comfort. The feet are in ruthenium-coloured burnished aluminium with protective caps.
The upholstery is available entirely in Pelle Frau® leather or in fabric. The In the Mood sofa is refined with piping that outlines its edges. In the leather version the piping is always in leather, while in the fabric version the piping can be in leather or matching fabric. It is always possible to remove the covers from the cushions while the covers of the backrest, armrest and frame can only be removed in the fabric versions.
In the Mood can be configured with different types of armrests:
Medium, low, and low outfitted armrest with a flap that accesses a storage compartment covered with black Alcantara and completed with a sliding multipurpose tray made from ash in a wenge stain.
