Mint Presents the Déshabillé Collection


Mint presents the impressive Déshabillé collection by the Como based multi-disciplinary design atelier, Draga & Aurel. For this collection of armchairs, the designers have reinterpreted old salvaged antique textiles giving them a new life.

The Déshabillé were created by literally “undressing” the original armchairs and applying distressed fabrics and decorative graphics, like phrases, proverbs or simple lettering.

Distinguished by a worn and seductive look, these unconventional chairs are silent “messengers” that reveal hidden phrases, describe the irresistible charm of the 1800s, and unveils the craft skills of upholsterers. All the unique pieces are impeccably handcrafted in the designer’s atelier in Como.
