How One Sofa Reminded Hip why Natuzzi is Still on Top


Every once in a while, a sofa will grace our floor that causes the entire staff to stop and stare. Considering the vast number of sofas that cross our path, it takes something really special to wow the team all at once.

Today, “La Scala” by Natuzzi Italia, is doing just that:

Everything about this piece is outstanding: The soft, natural leather laid over deep, hand done tufts, with a shape that plays off the traditional chesterfield, with an almost futuristic touch. This piece is not only stunning, but reminds us of what it really means to have a top quality, handmade sofa. (Which, by the way, the entire Natuzzi Italia line is handcrafted from start to finish by Italian artisans).

Take a peek below at the real-life construction of La Scala, and you will see why Natuzzi Italia continues to stand out from it’s competitors, year after year (est. 1959):

Capitonné is a tapestry technique whose origins date back to 18th century France where the process was applied to stuff sofas, armchairs, headboards and puffs. Today, very few artisans have the know-how to fashion the quilted padding and exposed buttons that produce its distinctive square- and diamond-shaped patterns. It takes the most skilled hands to work the capitonné, a technique that can only be acquired through the great dexterity and profound knowledge that come with constant practice. Indeed, Natuzzi artisans are the holders of a priceless expertise within the company: a manual wisdom that turns ideas into reality, sewing the hides, shaping the padding, and refining the precious details of Natuzzi’s exclusive product range.
