Amanta Set of 3 Armchairs by B&B/ C&B Italia, 1970s
They say 3 is the magic number, and we’re inclined to agree when it comes to this set of ‘70s Amanta armchairs by B&B / C&B Italia. Swathed in the timeless florals of House of Hackney’s PERSEPHONE print jacquard, each has its own personality, in ‘Noir’, ‘Verdigris’ and ‘Tourmaline’.
With her unfurling wildflowers, PERSEPHONE – goddess of Spring and queen of the underworld – represents the duality of Nature and the cycle of life. Hope springs eternal with this enchanting print.

A boldly beautiful motif of flowers and foliage, COMPTON was originally created by William Morris in 1896 for the interiors of Compton Hall in Wolverhampton. It would be the very last print our design hero lent his hand to.

We’re really passionate about making new of old and revising beautiful pieces of heirloom furniture so future generations can enjoy them and hopefully continue to pass them on. We’re incredibly excited to put this collection out into the world with 1stDibs, having reimagined these iconic pieces in some of our favorite British jacquard and velvets, they will last another lifetime.’ – Frieda Gormley & Javvy M Royle
