Febo is a family of sofas and armchairs that carries with it the memory of a traditional design distinguished by a large enveloping back without armrests. The sofas come in two sizes: a smaller one with low or high seat cushion and a larger one. The family is completed by elegant armchairs distinguished by back that can be low or high or more or less enveloping. These are available in a single material, in fabric or leather, with visible blanket stitch.
