Feet Off The Sofa.

We need to get a sectional for the family room but I’m worried that the dogs will chew it up. My wife suggests that we get a small transmitter that works with the ‘invisible fence’ system, but I’m skeptical. Also the kids still need to be reminded not to eat ice cream on the sofa.
So there’s no way we would get a POLTRONA FRAU sectional, pictured above. In any event, there’s an article in today’s Wall Street Journal discussing how the owners of this Italian luxury brand, is teaming with two other luxury brands to create a new listed company, in order to emulate the multi-luxury brand strategy of a LVMH or Richemont.
