Something new under the sun!


A natural creative fit for architects, artists, sculptors, designers. Barboglio is is in good company, the design of the chair is a time honored tradition.....
Functional art, a sculpture you can sit on...

Alvar Aalto in the 1930’s, Harry Bertoia, Miles Van dear Rohe, Frank Lloyd Wright, all masters in other fields have succeeded in making the humble chair into a masterpiece.

Barboglio’s "Silla Trenzada" or braided leather chair, conjures a juxtaposition of imagery... crude, elegant, most of all sculptural.

The leather is imported from England, hand woven and buffed. The patina of fine craftsmen ship only improves with time. The element of iron and polished leather is a classic combination yet totally modern. Combined with the stool it forms a chaise.

Modern and cutting edge in black.....
Slightly more informal and rustic in bridle.....
Earth tones make an organic statement totally grounded yet sleek and cool in tobacco....

More Barboglio magic ..... mixing it up.
Like any piece of art, it transcends styles and moods.

Keeping in line with functional art, that you can sit on..................
Clean, sculptural, with a nod to African art. Barboglio practicality strikes again.
Combined with the stool and or table it forms a unique environment.

The belief in guardian angels can be traced through antiquity, assigned to protect and guide.

The vivid symbol of communication ... Listen for the flutter of angel’s wings.

They are divine liaisons , earthbound to unlimited heavens they live betwixt worlds to light the way....

Barboglio’s totally sleek and modern take on an ancient image, sculptural, elegant, and functional.
