“Isabella is an actress, Isabella is a writer, Isabella is a business woman, Isabella is a woman. A modern, chic, sophisticated woman. She likes to go home after work and have a place to rest. A place of her own, where nobody else sits. It’s her armchair. It has to be strong enough to embrace her, but it has to be soft and with beautiful curved lines. It has to have details, like a fixed tufted back. It has to have the best quality materials, like a soft and lush velvet. It has to last forever and that is why she wantes it to be constructed with hand-tied coil springs. And it has to be unique and that’s why we made it by hand. It’s the way she likesi it and it’s the way we did it. It’s Isabella’s lounge chair.” – Designer Olga Torres
