Sleeper Hit: Natuzzi Italia Arioso Sleeper

In the world of classical music, an ARIOSO is a soaring operatic aria. In the world of finely crafted Italian furnishings ARIOSO by Natuzzi Italia is a sumptuous blend of sleep technology, luscious cushions, and fabrics. When the curtain comes down, this sleeper is a triumph of comfort and simplicity. The style and clean lines bely the large voluptuous seats, each with an added layer of memory foam. Step back, open the headrest, and the ARIOSO presents a plot twist. Within the lumbar support backrest are two 100% goose feather cushions for maximum convenience and comfort. Pleasant surprises are emblematic of the piece.



Like any timeless musical composition, the beauty of ARIOSO is in it’s ingenuity and the “ah ha” moments it provokes. Here is a sofa that on its face is the kind of ultra cushiony living room center-piece that invites everyone to relax and play. A single movement later its a technologically advanced custom sleep experience. The optional classic spring or Greenplus mattress, the convertible headrests which become an elegant headboard, and the flexibility of using feather cushions as bolsters all add to the transformative nature of this sofa turned sleeper. The “Ready Bed” mechanism offers light-touch one-handed ease when opening. Add the uniquely placed hidden pillow compartment which optimizes storage capacity, and you have a symphony of possibilities.

The counterpoint to the ARIOSO sleeper sofa is the equally poignant sleeper chair, offering all these creature comforts in a compact little number that opens into a space-saving chaise. Both pieces play out in a banquet of color and pattern choices all in deeply textured fabric or microfiber. These are well orchestrated designs in tune with classic or contemporary furnishings. Both achieve the harmony of comfort and lasting value you expect from Natuzzi. Visit out Watertown design center, put some Puccini on your headphones, and experience the sumptuous beauty of this sleeper for yourself.

These sleek, modular elements suggest an infinite array of solutions to the question of modern design. Walnut hanging bookcases evoke classic architectural forms.

Avana: The modern classic with endless possibilities

Avana Natuzzi Italia sofa


A first glance at AVANA by Natuzzi Italia evokes images of a dark paneled game room in a Victorian mansion or a sharp art deco study, a European aristocrat lounging with a glass of brandy dangling from their fingertips. Add an antique globe, an umbrella stand and roll the camera on the next episode of Downton Abbey. But a gentle touch of AVANA’s wide, cleverly incorporated headrest, and the possibilities begin to multiply. Now you’re really reclining. You’ve entered a contemporary living room, the whole family piled in beside you laughing at cartoons on the wide-screen. The broad supporting armrests invite cocktails or bowls of popcorn. This limo that can carry you anywhere.

Its namesake inspired by the artistry of master cigar rollers, this spacious creation echoes the craftsmanship of a Master Tabaquero whose dexterity and transformation of natural materials create an atmosphere of sensuous aromas and relaxation. A perfect appellation.


Avana Natuzzi Italia Sofa


AVANA is a voluptuous leather experience, welcoming the tallest guest to stretch out before the fire. Its secret lies in the way it skillfully adapts to a myriad of styles and configurations. Available in stationary, sofachaise, or sectional, it presents itself easily among traditional, contemporary, rustic, or eclectic decor. That is the birthright of classic design.

Modern, refined, and impeccably crafted, this sofa is loaded with the quality you expect from Natuzzi Italia. 25 Grade leather, rounded metal framing, and tufting on the seat all combine for unmatched elegance and sublime comfort. AVANA entreats the touch. Our Watertown design center offers the perfect setting to luxuriate and feel first-hand the possibilities.

Dorian: The Portrait of Elegant Design

Natuzzi Italia Dorian Sofa


Timeless beauty is the inspiration of Maurizio Manzoni and Robert Tapinassi’s exquisitely crafted modular concept piece DORIAN for Natuzzi Italia.  StudioMemo’s premier design partners draw their elegant sofa’s namesake from Oscar Wilde’s classic novel The Portrait of Dorian Gray. Their creation achieves the ageless allure of the novel’s protagonist without selling its soul.

At ease amidst a luxury living room ensemble, accenting a home entertainment studio, or relaxing in the office, DORIAN’s sweeping outline echoes the contour of Manzoni yacht designs while blending deep, low seated comfort. Covering and configuration options excite the imagination and adapt easily to a broad array of refined interiors. You can picture the international architect at work in this styling: balancing proportions, concealing seams, suggesting unique arrangements. The effect is an effortless execution of versatility and comfort.


Natuzzi Italia Dorian Sofa


Thick leather or richly woven fabric double stitched tone-on-tone entirely encompass this refined system of seats. The rich upholstery cloaks DORIAN’S generous proportions, linear design, and sophisticated composition. Every aspect of this composition reveals intelligent textile choices characteristic of Professor Tapinassi’s decades of fabric and interior design experience, all uniquely suited to deliver comfort and underlying form. Integrated lumbar cushioning joined with ECOFLEX memory foam deliver lasting support and durability on a hidden matte-black polished steel footing sensibly padded to protect modern flooring.

Meticulously handcrafted, made from sustainable materials, and invested with a lifetime structural warranty, this piece embodies Pasquale Natuzzi’s half-a-century long commitment to heirloom quality furnishings. DORIAN is a finely detailed portrait of lasting elegance.
