Discover The Best Luxury Italian Furniture ProjectsMonday 6 May 2019
Discover The Best Luxury Italian Furniture Projects⇒ Italian design as made its mark in the world, and continues to grow with the help of powerful masterminds of design like Patricia Urquiola or Piero Lissoni, and luxury furniture brands such as Armani/casa or Bentley Home. Having Milan as the capital of design has brought an exponential growth to Italy and the design districts and the amazing event Salone Del Mobile are some fine examples of that. Thanks to the growth of the luxury design world in Italy, today CovetED brings you some of the best Luxury Italian Furniture.
During Salone Del Mobile the luxury Armani brand presented an almost ethereal sensation is conveyed by the reference to natural elements in motion with allusions to Japanese iconography: nature, hot springs, the shape of the tsuba (the Japanese sword guard), the shades of clouds, Asian landscapes with trees and hills that create infinity-effects, blended hues reminiscent of a sunset or reflections on the water. The aesthetic of Armani/Casa was born from a subtle exchange between sensibility and taste, it expresses an unexpected harmony between different cultures; a collection that transforms parallels and similarities. The colours of the collection – light blue, blue, red and pale gold – are emphasised by artisanal craftsmanship and exquisite, innovative materials.
Armani/Casa games are enhanced with new elements, such as the new Oracle labyrinth game and the fun Oneiros memory game. This set is composed of 28 pairs of cards, with one side depicting sketches of previous Armani/Privé and Giorgio Armani collections and the other featuring the texture of the Ginza wallpaper. It is the clean, pure shape that adds a unique, contemporary touch to the Onda chaise longue, whose unusual curvature evokes the lightness and fluidity of sea waves. An interplay of geometric weaves and floral adornments characterize the area dedicated to the table.
At the moment, the Italian Luxury brand is working on an elegant home decor collection with a range of exquisite furnishing with elegance and simplicity. Upholstery, beds, tables and chairs are some of the home elements that can be bought.
These are the latest projects presented by the Luxury living Group – Fendi Casa: the Duke Sofa, the Ray sofa, Constellation Effe coffee Table and also, the Domino Mirror. The first one, the Duke sofa, expresses a contemporary mood in the version presented at the Salone Internazionale del Mobile, offers broad storage armrests. Embellished by leather upholstery decorated with the all-over FF logo, they house concealed practical storage compartments lined with micro-fibre. Fashion and functionality come together to support the back cushion, a metal frame covered in leather with raw cut edges. The FENDI logo heat-stamped on the back and the metal zip brings the personality of the design to the fore.
The band of quilted leather with the all-over FF logo outlining the backrest cushions forms the feature of the new Ray sofa. Sporting clean-cut lines, this elegant sofa with removable covers can be customised down to the smallest detail. The metal plating embracing it, for example, is available in steel and gun-metal, Bronze Shadow, polished brass or Palladium finishes.
An iconic piece of the FENDI Casa collection revisited in a contemporary key, the new Constellation Effe coffee tables with transparent tops are produced in two diameters: 60 and 120 centimetres. The side structures, the ring supporting the top and the F is FENDI logo pattern is made of galvanised metal available in gun-metal, Bronze Shadow, polished brass and Palladium finishes.
An unexpected creative bubble brings the FENDI universe inside the home, and vice versa: reflections become a game in which shapes and colours deviate from their normal perspectives, are turned upside down and distorted on the same surface. An artistic, decorative interpretation of the Domino line of mirrors in a variety of shades (smoked, bronze, blue or green), with silvered bevelled or convex curved surface. The steel frame is available in gun-metal, Bronze Shadow or Palladium finishes.
Chorley Sofa is one of the Luxury Furniture projects the Italian brand has created. The sofa was designed by Carlo Colombo and marks the enveloping style of Bentley Home Collection. The Chorley sofa has clean elegant lines and exquisite design. The frame is exquisitely upholstered in leather worked in diamond shapes. Some of the other projects developed in the new collection are the Whitby Table, the Canterbury Armchair, and also the Avebury bed, among many others.
This table has a radial patterned grain characterises the exclusive Smoked Liquidambar finish, and it’s also available in Burr Walnut Briarwood, Chestnut briarwood, Macassar Ebony, Dark Fiddleback Eucalyptus, Warm Grey Fiddleback Sycamore or Toffee Brown Smoked Larch.
Canterbury is the armchair in hiding leather has a harmonious shape whose elegance is enhanced by the embroidered logo on the backrest.
Avebury bed is characterised by the wrap design of the innovative curved shape that re-edits the British Maison codes in a compliment with sophisticated and modern attitudes.
The contemporary DNA of the Maver table becomes apparent starting from the base, through a vertical line that illuminates the bronze coloured, sandblasted steel frame and new wooden top in
The new version of the Liubis chair featuring wooden legs and leather upholstery creates a dining chair project in a trending style that expresses the best of Italian design. Sporting filled and empty
volumes, its defining feature is the frame produced from a single element supported by slim, slender legs.
A dynamic flow of tubular elements creates the original architectural structure of the A-Round armchair. Its harmonious design skillfully interprets and reflects Trussardi’s experimental energy, creating overlapping curves that accommodate the soft seat covered in leather or fabric. The rounded back integrates with the structure to give it an airy look.
Designed by Toan Nguyen, the Vitesse armchair pays homage to the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse, an ultra high-performance vehicle, which is reflected in the colours of the armchair frame, available in matte Titanium Silver and Steel Blue. The optical effect of the paintwork renders the armchair even more captivating: the reflections of light on the sinuous curves gives the chair the effect of changing colour. On the Sense Metal version, the Vitesse features a metal cage on the legs and frame, laser cut and welded with craftsman’s skill, which echoes the Bugatti car grille.
Speed, lightness and elegance: the Marguerite coffee tables designed by Carlo Colombo, shaped from wood lacquered in Steel Blue or Titanium Silver matte finish, pay tribute to the values of the Bugatti Home collection. The polished aluminium trim and steel swivel mechanism bring this coffee table’s contemporary techno character to the fore.
In the Ettore Grand Bureau desk, the rectilinear top extends lengthwise from the cabinet, seamlessly sloping to form the opposite base. A re-design of the classic desk, made possible by the outstanding performance of carbon for the structure.
