Arper – it’s a brand you know and love. Straight out of Italy, here are the latest products to hit Stylecraft’s showroom floor.
September 1st, 2018
Arper is the epitome of minimalist elegance and its products are perfectly suited to all kinds of commercial environments. With a growing range, we take a look at the latest offerings from the classic Italian house.
With classic arching armrests and a mix of materials that are perfectly colour matched, the Arcos brings an art deco edge. Designed by Lievore Altherr, the Arcos is made from a combination of integrated aluminium frames with a matching cushioned seat.
The light-weightness of the frames creates a minimalist repetition, inspired by the rhythm of archways and corridors seen in classical architecture.
Arcos’ elegant form, coupled with its bold colourways make it a statement for a whole range of scenarios. Plus, it comes in a versatile mix of single, double and three-seater options.
The piece that started it all and has continued to evolve with the brand – the Catifa is a classic, designed by Lievore Altherr. The Catifa range is an enduring testament simplicity in design, with a curving and inviting silhouette made possible through Arper’s own pioneering manufacturing processes.
Subtly evolving the design, the Catifa Up features a higher backrest and the option of newly designed armrests. Available in a full variety of leg and upholstery options.
The Leaf collection, as the name implies, is inspired by the structure and veining of a leaf. Also extending the growing family, a new item has joined the Leaf collection – the Leaf barstool.
Already available in a wide mix of tables, chairs and lounges, the Leaf collection can be used both indoor and out. A true connection to the great outdoors.
The Leaf collection has already proven itself as a popular range, with its organic shapes and inherent versatility. Now the new barstool adds to its possibilities, making it a suitable accompaniment to the growing rooftop and outdoor hospitality venues.
But the new design stays true to its original manifesto – to create an image that is simultaneously nostalgic and forward thinking.
Arper proves that reinvention can come from owning a design identity built up over time. By continually evolving and refining the products that have already become a fixture on the design world, you can continue to trust that the brand will deliver beyond just the aesthetics.

According to Le Corbusier, the struggle for it underpins the history of architecture. Frank Lloyd Wright described it as a “beautifier of buildings”.
