Armchair for the short set

December 13, 2007|David A. Keeps

Looking incredibly youthful for a design born in 1903, the Vanity Fair armchair by the Italian firm Poltrona Frau has just been downsized for children. Suitable for budding Hollywood hyphenates or kids who view "Hannah Montana" in media rooms, the Baby Vanity is one-third the size of the original chair and sports a beechwood frame and plush down-padded cushioning. The elegantly rounded back and armrests, which inspired countless variations during the French Art Deco period, are detailed with leather-covered nailheads that coordinate with the leather upholstery in bright red, as shown here, and ivory. It's $2,600 and available by special order from In-Ex, 8800 Wilshire Blvd., Beverly Hills, (310) 358-0500.
