Vienna Straw is made from rushes (drawn rushes) and is cut into long, thin strips ranging from 1.75 to 3.00 mm in width, giving it a high degree of strength. Vienna straw has a surface as smooth as plastic and was originally used for the construction of small accessories and for stuffing chair seats.

Vienna straw is resistant and can withstand even very high loads. Thanks to these characteristics, Vienna straw in metre lengths is ideal for replacing or making new seats and backs of chairs and sofas, both antique and modern.

Why Vienna straw? Because from the mid-19th century, the chairs produced by Gebrüder Thonet in Vienna were a worldwide success and became a style icon.

In the last two years, some modern furniture manufacturers, such as Miniforms, have started to offer various types of furniture made entirely or partly of Vienna straw: beds, screens, armchairs and chairs…

The result is a collection of furniture with a discreet, elegant and versatile style. This type of material can be combined perfectly with various other styles: classic, contemporary, modern, minimalist, Scandinavian…

The New 2022 Furniture Collections

Viccarbe savina sofa 1

The new 2022 furniture collections: modern, versatile and made of wood.

Miniforms brulla chair

Manufacturers are presenting their new furniture collections to be ready for the Salone del Mobile in Milan this June. But what will be the trends for 2022?

Miniforms plauto table

Sustainability.

The furniture in the new collections will be increasingly eco-sustainable, such as the Plauto table by Miniforms, designed by Paolo Cappello and Simone Sabatti, made entirely of wood which, thanks to an excellent raw material and consolidated craftsmanship know-how, manages to impress with simplicity.

Miniforms plauto table 1

Back to the past.

The new furniture collections show a return to the past in terms of design. For example, the new Brulla chair by Miniforms, designed by Skrivo, is inspired by Austrian chairs of the 20th century. The graphic aesthetic that defines it is given by the encounter of curved and linear forms, resolved in an identity and minimalist spirit.

An universe of comfort.

Viccarbe Savina, designed by Victor Carrasco, is an innovative modular cloud sofa that presents a new universe of comfortable working solutions for every office, workplace, home, hotel, or hybrid space. With the Savina sofa Viccarbe wants to reinterpret the feeling of sitting on a cloud or floating on water.

Multi-functionality.

Multifunctionality and adaptability to various types of environments: home, office, public places and contract projects. Viccarbe Cambio table, designed by Victor Carrasco, indeed, works in any area of the office or the home. Defined by a singular central base with a seamless silhouette, the Cambio table is a minimalist game of geometry based on the transition from a square to a round shape, taking us back to our origins.

Decorating Home with Mirrors.

Decorating with mirrors 3

Decorating your home with mirrors: how to decorate different rooms in your home with mirrors.

Decorating with mirrors 1

The mirror was created primarily as a purely functional element and finds its natural place in rooms such as the bedroom, the bathroom or the entrance to the house or to diffuse light in the rooms, or even increase the perspective of the spaces. But mirrors can also be used as decorative elements to decorate the home, to transform a room and give it a particular style and/or character.

Decorating with mirrors 2

A mirror is an extremely versatile piece of furniture, as it can be placed in any room, can have any shape, size and can be part of a composition. With mirrors you can renovate and decorate your home, even with little money, creating original and designer settings.

There are many places where a mirror can be placed: from the entrance to the hallway, the bedroom to the living room, a mirror in the right place harmonises the environment and creates pleasant perspectives. We recommend opting for modern, minimalist mirrors that can always be moved to other rooms or reused over time without compromising the visual harmony of the space.

The various models of mirrors available on the market create different effects in an environment; a mirror with an important frame or with a particular shape/size finds its maximum decorative expression when placed on the ground, becoming an important furnishing element of the environment, able to enhance the chosen style. This type of mirror finds its maximum expression when placed in a bedroom…

The use of mirrors is an excellent solution for cramped and poorly lit rooms; in this case you don’t need a huge mirror, just one of the right size and shape for the space available, meaning that in a small bathroom you don’t need a full wall mirror!

Large vertical mirrors are perfect for use in entrance halls or corridors, complete with accessories such as an object holder or clothes racks; in the case of Benvenuto by Miniforms, the mirror is transformed from a decorative to a functional element!

It is, of course, advisable to choose fresh materials such as Vienna straw for armchairs, tables and chairs, or glass, which lends lightness to the room and is so versatile that it can also be used in cold climates. Let’s see some examples together!

Miniforms Itinerario V.02 Collection

miniforms ozz lamp

Miniforms Itinerario V.02 collection: eleven brand-new products, new reinterpretations of the past and much more!

miniforms itinerario vol 2 collection

Among Italian historic buildings and creative leaders’ apartments, the new Itinerario V.02 collection was presented for the first time, supporting Miniforms idea of the domestic space: a place where iconic and suggestive elements always surprise.

miniforms boterina armchair

In this occasion, Miniforms is contract-oriented, and focuses its reflections on the individual and his new way of interacting with the community. So, for example, this is how the new Marino sofa was born, Miniforms first modular bench system.

miniforms marino sofa

Let’s discover together other products of the new Miniforms Itinerario V.02 collection:

-Boterina armchair: A cloud with a backrest. Boterina, the smallest member of   the Botera family, is a more compact armchair that will prove agile even in less spacious settings.

miniforms boterina armchair 1

-Briscola table: An ace in your kitchen. Drawing inspiration from the seventies,   Briscola is a noble revisitation of the bistro tables where card games were   played. It has the flavour of the Italian bars of yesteryear, amid coffee cups   and warm informality. The top is supported and framed by an ash-wood tray,   while the base, in black or galvanised metal, roots it firmly in the present.

miniforms briscola table

-Botera sofa and pouf: All about comfort. To relax, nod off or just put your feet   up, all modules share a squishy seat in different lengths, forming a sofa, a pouf  or an armchair.  These eclectic modules are conceived for spaces that change. From the exuberance of the sofa to the casual ease of the pouf, these modules expand into their space in long compositions or contract to fill cosy nooks.

miniforms botera sofa

-Milonga bookshelf: Straight up and down. Milonga is a bookcase with long legs, set with a delicate cadence between spaces. Either as a partition between rooms or, more traditionally, against a wall, this is an indispensable piece for organizing your home library. As well as being technical, Milonga is bold and distinctive, and plays on the colours of the tubes and the layout of the shelves. Indeed, it is the sequence of the shelves that gives the bookcase its sense of movement, echoing the rhythm of the lines printed in the exercise books of our childhood.

miniforms milonga bookshelf

-Soda coffee table: Blown away. Soda was born upside-down, with a puff of air. It weighs 20 kilos, and it is blown, drawn out and shaped by three master glassmakers. The result is a single volume of glass with three large petals forming the stem. In Soda, the glass vibrates: its tough, hammered surface fragments its transparency to give a primitive aesthetic. This is artistic value granted to an industrial product.

miniforms soda coffee table

-Furoshiki pouf: Wrapped with care. Furoshiki is an interplay of patterns and colours. The fabric upholstery covers the padded seat with precise geometries and an unequivocally oriental delicacy. The seams become sartorial details, dividing the item into precise segments. The weave and colours of the fabrics meet and greet one another, then continue in opposite directions.

miniforms furoshiki pouf

-Ozz lamp: Illuminating a story. Ozz is made of light and stone. It shifts from shy domesticity to become central to the home, proving itself a key figure, with its large, look-at-me arc. The design starts in the concrete and end in the lampshade. Between the two, the shaft curves in a dramatic trajectory until the point where the light bites the bait.

Ideas for Decorating an Empty Wall

Some interesting ideas for decorating an empty wall using designer accessories.

wall decor 2

Leaving a wall of the house completely empty could, in some cases, compromise the visual impact and harmony of a room. Especially in large rooms, if they are not palaces or period houses, it is always advisable to decorate the walls with method, using different colours, wallpaper, silk-screen printing or elegant design accessories. And it is precisely the latter ones that we will deal with in this post.

wall decor 3

Wall clocks

Design accessories with original shapes can be easily combined with any furniture and style of the house but also with any wall colour. For example coat hangers or colorful, elegant and sophisticated wall clocks.

wall decor 4

Tapestry rugs

Another idea we propose you is to use tapestry carpets, such as Nanimarquina’s Hayon x Nani instead of a painting. These types of accessories, made entirely by hand, are true works of art.

Where to buy the  Hayon x Nani rug

Acoustic panels

How about, instead, using nice acoustic panels, like the Beetle from Sancal company, to decorate the wall of your living room? The designer was inspired by the exhibition rooms dedicated to entomology and their terrifying showcases of insects…

Coat hangers

If the empty wall is located at the entrance of the house or in the hallway an idea would be to opt for a wall hanger… maybe coloured or in contrast with the colour of the wall.

Mirrors

If you love mirrors, why not putting some designer ones in the empty wall of your bedroom, hallway or even in the living room? Learn more about how to Decorate with mirrors
