$5,500 or Best Offer
Absolutely stunning and buttery soft to the touch, this natural Italian leather sofa is constructed to the highest quality standards of Baxter Italia.
The Stoccolma sofa, designed in 2011 by award-winning designer Paola Navone is created using whole, full-grain, nubuck cattle leather with a thickness of 1.6/1.8mm.
It is chrome tanned and re-tanned, dyed with pure aniline dye, and protected with water-repellent products.
The aged look of the hide with its scratches, scars, wrinkles, and chafes, characteristics of this extremely natural leather, is enhanced by special washing processes. The result of the final nubuck process is a characteristic light/dark effect.
This sofa was created as a natural leather design, which instead of masking the naturally occurring characteristics of the hide, enhances them. It redefines the concept of "defect" enhancing it to testify to life of freedom and characteristic texture.
This unique model of the Baxter Stoccolma sofa features a Chilean pine frame, feet in solid beech with a deep ebony stain, leather in Bo.Hemian Kaki, and Plume Bleu piping.
Purchased in 2014 for $13,650, this beautiful sofa can be yours for a fraction of the cost. It is in excellent condition awaiting its new home.
The Story of Baxter:
This is a story about the feeling that Made in Italy design is able to evoke and about the balance of the ingredients that, like in a perfect recipe, make truly unique the experience of looking at an object, touching it and plunging into its mood. This is a story about furnishing, that, like our skin’s extensions, become leather, hide, turning into special clothes speaking about the passing of time and tracing the lines of the future.
This is a story about a family, one that orbits around two Italian enlightened entrepreneurs, Luigi and Paolo Bestetti; it’s about the DNA characterizing the Italian family companies, sprouting from the love of a material and carrying around the manufacturing culture.
This family story starts from the hide passion and grows thanks to the human capital, the people with whom you constantly work and measure yourself. This is a young story, dating back only to 1990, but looking way back in time, to a century-old entrepreneurial tradition, flourished on the Brianza fertile land, that has always been producing the excellence in furniture for aristocracy first and middle class after, and that today pursues in its creations for all the beauty lovers.
This is a 100% Italian story beaming into an International panorama, one that starts from the reinterpretation of the English taste and evolves, through the art of leather working and shaping, into the production of unique collections.
This is the story of Baxter.
