High-End Furniture Brands – The Best Luxury Interior Design ProjectsTuesday 26 March 2019
High-End Furniture Brands – The Best Luxury Interior Design Projects ⇒ You don’t have to research a lot to find proper interior design projects. The best interior designers range a lot from residential to hospitality and even public space projects. The fact is that these same interior designers demand nothing more than the best of the best. Some of these projects feature hyper-exclusive brands with incredibly unique designs and inspire us all by how the pieces harmoniously fit together.
Residential projects are some of the most freeing projects that a designer can have. The goal is always to portray the client’s vision at the highest possible level. But always leaving the brand’s signature behind. Check Out some of what we consider to be the best residential projects, provided by the best high-end furniture brands.

Flexform’s Private Living Room in São Paulo
An elegant São Paulo residence designed by Hueb Ferreira Arquitetos. The signature design look is apparent in the simplicity of the pairing of the travertine floors with a bold shade of dark brown on the painted walls.
The clear chromatic contrast contributes to creating an atmosphere of refined equilibrium. The living room is furnished with a spacious composition of the Groundpiece sofa, designed by Antonio Citterio, upholstered in a light-coloured linen fabric that pairs fittingly with the dark brown cowhide-clad bookshelf-armrest that lends function and personality to the sofa.
Completing the decor, the Fly coffee table in Canaletto walnut that flutters above the unique Bangkok ottoman, also upholstered in dark brown cowhide.
A Private Residence by Flos
This Private residence, by Flos Furniture, art is everywhere to be found. The architectural features are perfectly merged with the Italian brand’s furniture. The beginnings of Flos (meaning “flower” in Latin) blossomed from a brilliant idea: to create objects, starting with a light bulb, that would change the way of life for both the Italian market and the foreign markets.
In 1972, the “Italy The New Domestic Landscape” show at New York City’s MoMA– the most important museum of contemporary art in America – was a phenomenon of unprecedented popularity celebrating the culture of art and industry. Flos was featured in the show with several pieces – in particular by the Castiglioni brothers – consolidating the brand as an international avant-garde company. From that moment, the firm’s development and its popularity went hand-in-hand. Between the ’70s and ’80s, they expanded their production with new facilities, their market with branches abroad, and their product catalogue (which included the acquisition of dell’Arteluce by Gino Sarfatti).
Under Piero Gandini’s management, Flos focused on the harmony between iconic forms, artisan craftsmanship and mass-production technology. However, the crucial step towards change came with the realization that contemporary objects can be a form of expression, with as many stylistic interpretations as there are languages in the world. And so, Piero Gandini called upon the most promising talents in international design: from the “futuristic” style of Australian Marc Newson (with his Helice Lamp in 1993) to the English prophet of minimalist design Jasper Morrison, to Konstantin Grcic, the most refined and eclectic German designer.

Private Villa in London with Circu Magical Furniture
Circu Magical Furniture has been all over the years present in some of the best kids interiors projects in the world. The unique qualities of their pieces make them a premier choice of designers and studios, like in this case with AB+Partners. The white of the walls, the pastel colours and the selective materials dominate the atmosphere. By renouncing the complexity of forms, the studio opted to offer the sumptuousness in another form, so that its splendour is not strident but create the general atmosphere of the villa. The interior has been given luxury notes by integrating golden details, classic wall decoration and fine finishes.
In the sophisticated ambience, imposing luminaires were easily framed, whose sumptuous shapes come to perfectly complement the interior. Thus, the villa borrowed from the classic London style, mixed with modernism, transforming the residence into the perfect place for relaxation and retreat from everyday life. The Fantasy Air Balloon is a themed bed that invokes the romantic and whimsical ambience of a hot air balloon ride!

Architect Sofia de Backer’s House with Antonio Lupi
Upon entering, it is immediately noticeable: Sofie likes beautiful and practical. “A house serves primarily to live in. It must be functional and practical. ”So there was a double door at the front: one for the office and one for the living area. The architectural design of the house is also simple and efficient: a fairly tight floor plan with two beams one above the other, with the top one slightly slid over the edge, to form a roof over the terrace.
At the rear, above the covered terrace, is the night area of the couple. The bedroom and bathroom are in one large room, which creates a suite feeling. The Porro wardrobe in the middle serves as a partition and headboard for the black lacquered bed with canopy from MDF Italia. The bathroom area is also protected with a wall of smoked glass.
Bath ‘Baia’ and washbasin ‘Tender’ by Carlo Colombo for Antoniolupi, tap work from Vola. Here they are economical with faucets: the one against the rear wall serves for both the shower and the large bathtub.
Hospitality Design is primarily centred around industries that provide services like hotels, restaurants, bars, clubs, lounges and country clubs! It can be pretty complex to scope around budgets and space planning and that is why the interior designers who work in hospitality take on a lot of responsibilities and must manage well around their clients’ needs and design choices.
