It’s been 100 years since Italian furniture company Poltrona Frau started designing and manufacturing its beautiful, timeless styles. And not only do they keep coming out with new designs, but their old ones look as current as ever. Armchairs designed back in 1919 are still available to buy today and this Dezza armchair (which I’m completely obsessed with) was designed in 1965. To celebrate the brand’s 100-year birthday, WPA Chicago (314 W. Superior St., Suite 110; 312-335-3855) is hosting a month of events through December 15, including displaying Poltrona Frau’s iconic furniture pieces, from the Chester (designed in 1912) to the Juliet (a brand new design from 2012). Every Saturday afternoon during the celebration, WPA will be hosting a wine and cheese party with pairings from around Italy. And on the weekend of December 14th and 15th, they are taking 20 percent off all Poltrona Frau Atelier items. Let’s hope we all look as good when we turn 100.
