Versatile, extremely sober and decidedly elegant, grey could in fact be misleading, but when used correctly it is simply perfect throughout the house, especially when declined in the most delicate and enveloping shade of the pearl and used to embellish any surface, furnishing complement, textile and accessory. Whether small or large, modern or very traditional, there is no difference: pearl grey adapts to your every need by adding a touch of brightness to your spaces, especially if combined with other colors.

DINING ROOM: The perfect dining room is a warm, comfortable and cosy place that, thanks to this very elegant and sophisticated colour, recalls the very chic ambiences of the minimalist style. It is recommended to combine pearl grey leather chairs with glass tables and steel or wooden frame to give life to the maximum of elegance.

BEDROOM: If you love modern style with a Scandinavian touch, you will already have come across rooms with pearl grey interiors and have already saved them in your social feeds. Nothing could be more comprehensible: pearl grey is in fact very recommended in this environment because it is a delicate shade that combines relaxation and rest. Yes then to the use of a gray wallpaper or maybe thick curtains to obscure the light at night, but it is also absolutely perfect on sheets and furniture for a simple touch and at the same time very elegant. Let be inspired by these beautiful bedrooms!

BATHROOM: From walls to furniture, pearl grey is a classic of another environment: the bathroom. Try it on ceramic tiles combined with warm tones and transparent glass panels for the shower surfaces, but it will also be perfect on stone or concrete surfaces, resins, thermal paints and small mosaics to restore a space of extremely sophisticated and elegant charm. Enjoy these wonderful baths!

An Explosion Of Colours

barnaby sofa sancal

An explosion of colours. Story of an ideal apartment in the heart of New York.

 

new york picture img1

 

The famous architect Gio Ponti, in 1957 wrote the quote “Architecture is colourless and what you are working on is the environment, on landscaping”. Just three years earlier, precisely in 1954, Ettore Sottsass complained about the exclusive interest in structure displayed by modern architects, crying out for them to consider “a setting in the normal sense of the word”, and thus one made up of colours and emotional intensities that go well beyond any structural reality. He also added “By dint of whitening walls, of brightening things up and wanting more light, the significance of colours in architecture has almost been lost”.

These are old questions that are still relevant and even in one of the emblematic settings of contemporary global living , such as a very high end real-estate development in the heart of a metropolis, colour has been used to show how a setting can be transformed into a “domestic landscaping” and liberated from the abstractions of the structure that contains it.

“Entering a room with the right colours is like enjoying a balanced meal or listening to a suggestive piece of music: a pleasure for the senses, in which to linger is pleasant and refreshing. If managed with care, colour is no less important than a piece of furniture or the correct arrangement of the furniture, but it becomes a basic element to make a space alive and welcoming.”   Stephanie Hoppen

Feminine but not cloying, the shades of pink, raspberry and red never go unnoticed. The tonality of the raspberry includes the fruity nuances of cherry but also tomato and can be well combined with white, blue and gray creating lively and elegant atmospheres without ever compromising the visual impact of the environment.

A return of colour is in progress. The season of neutral and clear colours is not over, yet new, subtle chromatic nuances are beginning to creep in and replace classic preferences, to create warm, welcoming and lively environments.

The Jungle Style

Sancal Collection Jungle img1

The Jungle style. Exotic influence turns your home into a Caribbean oasis.

 

the jungle style 1

 

Floral decorations and prints with large green leaves are the protagonists in environments that recall the atmosphere of distant countries.
The style of a house reflects who lives in it: the choice of a piece of furniture or the colour of the walls reflects the personality of those who love to make domestic spaces a place where they feel good, spending relaxing moments. This is also the case with the furnishings of the living room, par excellence the room to be dedicated to aperitifs with friends or to Sunday naps in the middle of the afternoon. Jungle style becomes fashionable, with its bright and bright colors that give life to a warm and welcoming environment. Used mainly for living room furniture, the Jungle style can also be very satisfying in the decoration of dining rooms, bathrooms and even bedrooms. Nature, impossible shapes, shadows, lights, bright colors, relaxation; all this defines this simple but well-kept style.

The Jungle style in the living room.

To make this place truly enjoyable, however, the attention to the selection of furniture that bring together design and functionality is not enough. What we need, in fact, is an eye for trends. In this regard, the styles that most intrigue designers and home decor enthusiasts are the tropical and jungle styles, both born as a declination of the style of exotic influences. Prints, complements and accessories that, for their colours and shapes, evoke journeys to distant lands and the atmospheres of tropical countries: these are the distinctive features that unite the two styles but there are also differences.

The Jungle style in the dining room.

Choosing the Jungle style for the dining room means giving life to an original space and making the home environment cheerful and witty. The predominant colour here is green, in all its shades, from the darkest and most intense to lime green. The purchases to be made immediately are a spotted wallpaper or with huge green leaves or vases with more particular shapes with large plants. The tropical style, on the other hand, evokes Caribbean atmospheres and finds its dominant feature in the accessories in the shape of pink flamingos. Another must-have that characterizes the tropical style is the pineapple, which is found in many pieces of furniture.

The Jungle style in the bedroom.

Raw wood, abundant plants, colourful sheets with large leaves and large carpets that create an almost magical atmosphere. The bedroom, furnished in the Jungle style, must be “magical”. We suggest choosing oversized carpets that cover almost the entire room, so you can walk barefoot, like in the jungle, without feeling the cold.

Furnishing trends for 2019: what you like is in fashion

cattelan italia skorpio

Furnishing trends for 2019: what you like is in fashion. A trend that leaves everyone free to cultivate creativity.

 

cattelan italia skorpio

Product in the picture: Skorpio Table

A trend that comes from international fairs and leaves everyone free to cultivate their creativity. Relying on craftsmanship and a mix of styles. With only one firm point: the elegance of solid wood.
Enough with furniture that follows a single trend. Whether it’s modern, urban, Scandinavian, artisanal, shabby chic, classic, everything is allowed as long as it’s pleasing to the end consumer and follows his individuality and creativity. It seems the simplest of conclusions, but from the latest trade fairs – first and foremost Tendence 2018 , the international consumer goods fair held in Germany – this is the most interesting fact that emerges: what you like is in fashion!

 

solid wood img1

 

In this pot pourri of aesthetic paths, cultures, traditions, materials and fantasies are mixed together to highlight craftsmanship, the beauty of imperfection (which makes an object unique), as well as the origin and history of products, designs and creators. And if you want to find the lowest common denominator that brings all these trends together, this is precisely the rediscovery of techniques and craftsmanship that are becoming extinct and that can give objects a very special tactility: the 2019 furniture wants to be caressed, with the eye but also with the hand. Today’s design approach therefore requires a high quality of details, finishes and workmanship that can lead to the recovery, where possible, of ancient know-how.

 

Product in the pictures: Natura Table  

 

natura domus artis

The material that dominates this explosion of craftsmanship, creativity and mix of styles and cultures is solid wood, better if raw or natural to reveal the imperfections that give the furniture variety and uniqueness. A wooden piece of furniture is in fact an evergreen, it creates a perfect contrast with the more urban styles and integrates perfectly with the more traditional ones, giving warmth but also elegance and a feeling of harmony to the environment.

natura domus artis img1

In wood furniture, the sobriety of the colour is combined with the elegance of the shape and the refinement of the design in order to add prestige to the furnishing solutions. Wood becomes the protagonist in handcrafted furniture, where manual processes create that touch of exclusivity and the advantage of being able to exploit every space in the most suitable way for your needs. Solid wood is the material that places among its priorities the sustainable approach of production, the natural and healthy aspects of materials, a simple, effective design, but not without refinement.

 

Product in the picture: Big Table  

bonaldo big table

What are the most popular and best-selling solid wood design furniture? Italian companies such as Domus Artis uses this precious material for the production of handcrafted dining and kitchen tables. Other luxury companies, such as Cattelan Italia and Bonaldo have created high level iconic products that have had great success at the international level. The choice is very wide; from handcrafted products to exclusive luxury. The important thing is that you like it and that it matches the environment, giving also a touch of warmth to the space without compromising the visual impact.

Timeless design pieces of furniture

vitra chaise longue

Timeless design pieces of furniture. The furniture that will stay with you when all the other furniture goes into the attic.

 

Do you know the saying “a diamond is forever”? In your opinion, is it possible, imagining our homes, to say the same thing, that is to say that “furnishing is forever”? The question arises spontaneously when you are about to furnish your home and you are attracted by furniture inspired by the latest design trends: the fear, however, is that, in a few years, they appear outdated and unpleasant. In reality, there are timeless pieces, true classics of furniture, that escape the whirlwind of fashion and preserve their beauty over time. They are often “smart” pieces which, due to their function or small size, can, over time, be moved from one room to another or even be reinvented, but which we will never tire of.

vitra chaise longue

 

The Console

The console is one of the eternal furnishings, present regardless of fashions and styles within each home. It is a container and, for this reason, useful and appreciated and has the ability to furnish different environments. Especially when small, we can find it at the entrance or in the corridor, in the bathroom, kitchen and, of course, in the living room. Like all classics, the console is a wild card that finds space in environments furnished with furniture of every style, which can be placed side by side with continuity or, alternatively, in contrast if you want to create a design accent.

The Bar Cabinet

Among the small pieces of furniture, the bar cabinet deserves a special mention. It is one of those objects that stands there in a corner, a little ‘forgotten, and yet has never lost its value and appeal. Proof of this is that there is no designer who does not boast a shout in his production. Whether it is modern and minimal or precious and hyper-decorated, the bar cabinet easily finds space between the sofas or next to the window, often adding a flirtatious twist to the furnishings of the entire room.

An Icon of Design

In the last twenty years we have witnessed the so-called democratization of design, which has brought objects of great design even inside the most common homes. Buying an icon of modern or contemporary design means adding quality and distinctiveness to the furniture and it is now customary to pass it from mother to child like the old window or the table of grandparents. A sixties lamp, eighties chairs or a coffee table from the year 2000 will find their place among the other furniture, perhaps beautiful, but certainly more anonymous, without ever getting tired of being admired.

The Light-Coloured Sofa

The light-coloured sofa is equivalent in its furnishings to what the black sheath dress represents for a woman’s wardrobe: a fundamental item. Whether in leather or fabric, the clarity of a white or light sofa gives warmth and spontaneous elegance to the environment and, of course, can approach different atmospheres. Excellent in both classic and contemporary environments, it loves both warm and cold colours and can be personalised and always updated in a thousand ways, playing with cushions and plaids.

The Round Table

Another piece of furniture that we can buy without worrying that in a few years we might get tired is the round table. Here, too, it doesn’t matter whether in glass or marble and with a contemporary line or in the warm dark tones of wood and with sinuous classic lines. The round table has the advantage of being comfortable where space is lacking and we can accompany it to light and informal seats as well as structured and welcoming armchairs. It is often enhanced by creating a pleasant contrast with the rest of the furniture, choosing a solid material model on a modern furniture or vice versa if you have opted for furniture in style.

Floor Lamps

For the floor lamps, the same is valid as for the bar furniture: they have always been in our homes, sometimes they seem to hide in the corners and then come back again as protagonists. Their characteristic is to be “totemic”, to have a strong sculptural presence and therefore to act as furniture. There are different types and very different shapes. And then they light up, coming in handy next to an armchair for reading, combined with a wall for those who love soft indirect light or, near the dining table or the sofa area, to replace the most common chandelier.

The Mirror

There are objects that are handed down from generation to generation to which one recognizes the ability to preserve and transmit family affections. Among these there are the furniture and among the furniture the mirror wins. Perhaps because in past centuries the mirror was a rare and expensive object, it confirms its importance even in today’s homes, often acting as a focal point. An antique or modernist mirror can easily fit into the most varied contexts, succeeding in embellishing a corner or an entire room.

The Wooden Bed

Unlike other furnishings, the purchase of the bed undermines our certainties, because you rarely buy it thinking of replacing it over time. Fear is, therefore, that soon we will tire or that it appears dated. In fact, there are many types of bed that we find on the market, regardless of the alternation of fashions. Among these we recognize to the wooden bed just for the simplicity of the lines that characterize it, the ability to coexist with any type of furniture, affirming a timeless personality. In fact, even in the case of a possible change of house, or complete renovation, the old wooden bed will still find its place as a protagonist.

The Bergère Armchair

For everyone it is the grandmother’s armchair, but it continues to be the noblest of the seats and also the coolest. It was born in the eighteenth century and, it will be for the comfort of its soft padding, has never left our homes. Perfect for reading corners is often the ideal complement to the sofa area, succeeding with its many variations to deal with every style.

Eight coffee tables to match with a fabric sofa

Eight coffee tables to match with a fabric sofa. How to create the perfect match with the most classic of upholstered items: the fabric sofa.

Couple of honor in the living room, sofa and coffee table are the heart of the conversation area, to be organized according to the size of the room should also be composed stylistically in the best way. And if one of the two elements is the (more or less) classic fabric sofa, for the second element the choices can be different. From the most classic and traditional solutions to the most original and less conventional, there are different interpretations that can be given to this pair, especially in the presence of an important element such as a fabric padding. To better understand how to orient yourself here are eight coffee tables ideas to match with a fabric sofa.

Unconventional

What coffee table to combine with a fabric sofa/armchair with a modern and minimalist design to get out of the obvious? If you are faced with a model of this kind, with standard dimensions, one of the most interesting solutions leads to the choice of a central table a bit ‘unconventional’. For example, an upside-down cone shaped, brightly coloured coffee table could be the perfect idea to lighten the extremely “common” lines of the sofa.
Alternatively, another option could be to focus on a table with a different top than the usual models. In this conversation corner, the unconventional choice of a ceramic top was chosen. A very elegant and discreet material, both in terms of colour and material, goes very well with the sofa and is perfect for creating an interesting contrast between the two elements.

Traditional with a touch of innovation

Do you have a modular sofa made of a fairly large fabric and would you like to “rejuvenate” it a little? For the choice of the coffee table it is better to focus on a single element, simple but of design, minimalist but with a pleasant visual impact as in the picture. Here the coffee table has been positioned to the side of the sofa so as to create a new dialogue with the sofa, an ideal solution to give new life to the traditional upholstered furniture.

Essential lines with a hint of decoration

If the sofa is large, dark and with a minimalist design, in the choice of the accompanying table you could focus on a model that is also essential and large (at least 1\3 of the sofa) preferably with a glass top. The additional idea, to break the rigour of the two elements, could be the choice of a neutral-coloured rug to be placed right under the table. If you then aim, as in this solution, the mix will certainly be winning.

For those who love the industrial style

In styles like the beloved industrial, the sofa is often the heart of the entire living room. In this case, however, what revolves around the upholstered sofa must be in line with the style chosen. The ideal coffee table should therefore be central and better if a model with a metal structure and wooden top of a size proportionate to the sofa. A simple solution, easy to replicate and certainly fascinating.

An unconventional couple

What if it wasn’t the classic furnishing accessory but a pouf, always in fabric and coordinated with the sofa? An idea to consider if you have a large space and if you are used to receiving many friends, and therefore you need a few more seats. To be chosen not too small and coordinated with the sofa can be placed in the center of the living room or laterally.

Vintage and wood to make no mistake

A vintage-style sofa is always an interesting piece. Small and not too large, like the one in the photo, it offers great freedom of composition and allows you to play freely with the furnishing accessories around it. With models of this type for the coffee table you can choose either something in style or something contemporary that creates a link between past and future. In both cases it is better to opt for a piece that is not too large, it would ruin the line of the upholstered sofa.

An explosion of colours

A modern sofa does not only mean neutral colours or dark shades, more and more often we find fabric sofas in a wide variety of colours. In these cases, the most prudent solution is to choose a table that is neutral from both a stylistic and a chromatic point of view. For experienced interior designers, two strong, contrasting colours can still work very well.

XL Compositions

The large sofas equipped with dormeuse and/or chaise longue often occupy the entire part of the living room destined for the conversation area. When choosing a coffee table, in this case you can either, as in this solution, decide to focus on a single center of gravity element of the sofa with sustained dimensions, or orient yourself on several “serving” elements to be placed at the sides of the sofa. Stylistically, if you are dealing with a model with a classic finish, but with a contemporary design, the advice is to choose a precious material (such as marble, for example), which will give the whole the importance it deserves.

The most innovative materials for your kitchen worktop

The most innovative materials for your kitchen worktop. Elegant and super functional worktops, thanks to the latest generation materials.

 

kitchen worktops

 

For many of us, the kitchen is the most lived-in home environment, the one where we spend the most time. Here we prepare breakfast, lunch and dinner, which means washing, shredding, kneading, seasoning, cooking and, at the end, cleaning… These are all daily activities that take place on tops and worktops that must be practical and functional, but also resistant and easy to keep clean. The market really offers a rich choice of solutions ranging from the most classic materials, but technologically enhanced, to those of the latest generation. In fact, the tops are asked not to absorb liquids, to resist scratches and abrasions, to be stain-resistant, heat-resistant and also ecological. This month we have collected for you the most innovative materials for your kitchen worktop.

Viroc material.

Among the absolute novelties in the panorama of kitchens, Viroc is a composite material obtained from a mixture of pine wood and cement. From these we obtain a strongly compressed and dehydrated amalgam.
It is a versatile product that can also be used outdoors and in spaces other than the kitchen. The panels combine the flexibility and durability of wood with the strength of cement and have a natural appearance of black or gray and uneven surface. The Viroc material can also be found in other beautiful colours such as white, yellow, red or ochre. Other characteristics of the material are its resistance to UV rays and weather conditions, its strong opacity, its odourless, fireproof and non-toxic nature. It does not contain volatile dangerous components such as asbestos or formaldehyde. An excellent material, therefore, but it is neither renewable nor biodegradable.

Paperstone material.

Another welcome new entry into the world of worktops is Paperstone. Ecological since the production phase, it is also a composite material but made of 100% recycled office paper plus water-based resins and oils obtained from cashew shells. The Paperstone worktop is pleasant to the touch and to the eye, recalling the appearance of natural stone. Among the interesting physical characteristics of Paperstone we find the strong resistance to shocks and abrasions, the fact that it is stain-resistant, water-repellent and almost acid-proof. It is also available on the market in different colors and, although derived from paper, has a strong fire resistance. Its cost is absolutely affordable.

Fenix material.

Among the technologically advanced materials, Fenix is certainly one of the most innovative and is particularly suitable for refined and modern aesthetic solutions. The use of nanotechnology during the production phase allows to obtain an external surface that, treated with acrylic resins of new generation, hardened and fixed through a special process, is resistant to wear and chromatically stable. The worktop is opaque, impact-resistant and soft-touch. The name Fenix refers to the ability to regenerate from any surface scratches thanks to the thermal repairability. Maintenance is also simple and quick: a preheated cloth is used which must be rubbed on the damaged part: the heat does the rest.

The Fenix material is, as you could see in the video, also used in the dining tables. The Italian company Miniforms offers a wide range of dining tables available with tops entirely in Fenix or in Fenix with wooden edges. Here are a few examples:

Krion material.

Krion belongs to the solid surface category of which we know the well known Corian and to which it resembles in appearance and characteristics.  It is an ecological and 100% recyclable material, obtained from a mixture of 2/3 natural minerals and high strength resins. The Krion tops are warm to the touch and recall natural stone. In addition to white, you can have it in many colors and different thicknesses. Krion panels are processed as if they were wood and, in addition, it is possible to obtain soft and curved shapes by means of heat. In addition, compared to similar materials, it is lighter and therefore versatile and is also used outdoors as a facade cladding.
Easy to clean, it is rather resistant to stains and wear, but if damaged it can also be restored using an abrasive sponge. If several pieces have to be joined, the joints are invisible, the surface has no pores and is antibacterial, making it particularly suitable for kitchen and bathroom tops.

Laminam material.

Laminam tops are characterized by their reduced thickness, being sheets of only 3 mm that are obtained from a mixture of natural raw materials. In fact, the production process requires that the basic materials, such as quarry clay, granite rocks and ceramic pigments, are wet ground and then compacted and sintered at a temperature of 1,300 °C. The thin surface produced is characterized by a high resistance to wear and tear but also to solvents or detergents. Due to its low thickness, the Laminam sheet is then glued to a plywood or cement panel. Laminam is a very aesthetically pleasing material that can be used both in the choice of colours and textures, succeeding in recalling, depending on the case, Corian, natural stones or the most up-to-date trending resins. The surface is finished to be smooth or irregular to the touch and to be opaque or semi-gloss. Beautiful, practical and functional, even if not for all pockets yet.
