A contemporary classic, Marco Corti’s Carlton Armchair for Nube is a spacious spectacle—long on depth and even longer on personality.
The resemblance to Modern icons is pronounced enough to elicit surprise that Carlton was authored not in 1963, but some fifty years hence in 2013.
Carlton has all the familiar trappings of the Modern marvels: finely crafted real wood, functional economy, and a unique aesthetic spin—in this case, Carlton’s plush polyurethane foam in oversized and comfy contours.
The upholstery shown is a singular creature too. A hip, retro Houndstooth, the appearance is simultaneously old and new, re-contextualized for a look that suits today’s take on yesterday’s aesthetic.
