this has got to be the coolest director's chair ever! looks really comfortable, too. designer Jean-Marie Massaud's Aster X for Poltrona Frau glamorizes the clean-cut frame with steel arms and legs in a gunmetal finish. the seat frame is made from solid beech wood. covered in Pelle Frau leather - generously available in 90 colors. i would love to own a couple and place them in my study.
