Among the main characters of Milan International Fair, the Italian furniture manufacture Baxter introduced important novelties inspired by the Fifties design. Always characterized by the extremely high quality of its leathers, Baxter showcased both living and night area elements.
Together with retro shapes and traditional shades, fresh and bright colors stood out, such as sage green, saffron yellow and ruby red. They are also used by the manufacture to highlight shiny materials like brass that is present in many Baxter pieces of furniture. Plain colors match with black and white patterns from the Fifties. Next to the cult and timeless Chester Moon sofa, at Milan Fair Baxter introduced three new sofas.
Soft and sinuous shapes and a feel of extreme comfort characterize Casablanca sofa, a seat covered in soft leather and presented in the Nabuck Sage shade. The backrest and armrests big cushions and a good depth of the seat render this sofa extremely cozy, versatile and informal.
A higher aestetic rigidity, not less comfortable, characterize Tactile sofa. Designed to fill wide spaces with its originality, it is only covered in soft leathers that allow the special quilting of seat and backrest. The colors that enhance its shapes are the browns, such as the Plume Noir and Polish Stone shades.
The product family also includes Tactile armchair, introduced in the bright Nabuck Saffron yellow shade, and Tactile coffee table, with glossy steel top.
Godard sofa design brings you straight to the Fifties. It is characterized by the absence of armrests, by horizontal overlapping and by visible wooden feet. For this sofa, Baxter offers the chance of having different leathers for the decorative piping and cushion/backrest planes. At Milan International Fair, the sofa came in Tuscany Siena leather with Nabuck Saffron piping and Nabuck Sage cushions. A bench of the same product family is available.
Mio sofa, already in the Baxter catalogue, has been presented at Salone del Mobile covered in vintage printed leathers: backrest and armrests in Kashmir Rubis shade, piping in Kashmir Nuage and seat covered in leather Kashmir Nuage Printed Star.
