This platform bed has a more delicate appearance.
While the bedroom is a private space, the stunning Margareth bed from
Misura Emme might drive you to show it off to friends and family. The modern and elegant design by Massimo Molteni combines an upholstered headboard and waif-thin platform base of solid wood, capped off with slim and seductive legs. Unlike the standard platform bed, the Margareth has a much lighter and ethereal look because it sits up off of the ground. Here, the bed is used in a gray color palette that creates a luxurious and serene but sophisticated bedroom.
Next, to the bed, the Milvian nightstand by
Francesco Lucchese is a sophisticated fusion of materials and styles. Framed on the sides, the glass-topped stand is open in the front and the back, which adds to the versatility, as does the drawer, which appears to be a fixed section. It is part of a set that includes complementary pieces such as a dresser. More than a Bench
This piece is part bench, part lounge.
Yes, it is a chaise longue, but the
Aplomb from Ivano Redaelli is far more functional. The relaxed, casual look is achieved through the updated design that combines a textile surface and a sleek wooden frame in a piece that could pass for a modern spin on a bench. Ideal for a bedroom or dressing area, the high-end design is very attractive but not overwhelming thanks to its gracious profile. Used in place of a bench, it is more comfortable for extended periods of sitting or lounging. Eclectic Shelving
Irregular sizes, vertical lines and heights create interest.
Book lovers will rejoice over the
BEAT modular bookcase from 4 Mariani designed by Umberto Asnago. Much, much different from the standard bookcase because of its unusually shaped units, the BEAT has a totally different look. More eclectic than the typical regimental outline, this design breaks all the rules of symmetry and adds a fun factor to space. Definitely meant for those who embrace being different, this bookcase will bring added interest to a contemporary space. The veneer finishes include bleached oak, oak dyed dark grey or oak dyed in dark brown and the back if the bookcase is covered in saddle leather as are the containers. are in saddle leather. In front of the shelving, the Giotto coffee table is actually composed of three oval sections set at varying heights. The tops are crafted from marble that has a half-toroid edge and the base is lacquered plywood. Dark, Sculptural Coffee Table
A sculptural coffee table is a conversation piece.
Almost more of a sculpture than just a coffee table, the
Tama from Walter Knoll is a two-tiered design that floats one expanse of marble over another. As a counterpoint, the rounded forms that serve as the base of the table are equally sculptural and are not a feature to be overlooked. Among coffee table designs. this is a unique look that still fits in with the current trend of using more than one table at the center in front of the sofa. The black marble is also super sophisticated, and adding a bit of a darker, moderating effect with a black coffee table is a good way to counteract softer colors like the mauve and muted pink accents.
Coffee Table Substitute
A side table adds extra functionality almost anywhere.
Not every room has the space for a large coffee table and, even if it does, it might not be handy enough. Instead, consider a small side table that can substitute for a coffee table, such as the
Jok from Porada. It is a modest, round piece that features a pole support and round base, allowing it to be tucked tightly up against a chair or sofa, putting the table surface right next to the seated person. This little table is available with a pole of solid canaletta walnut, metal base and top crafted from wood, in glass or stone. This style of table could also work as a modern nightstand, especially in a bedroom where the look of heftier design would be unappealing. Clear Dining Table
The polycarbonate table can be tinted as can the base.
Hugely versatile because it’s clear, the
Sir Gio by Philippe Starck for Kartell is another modern design using polycarbonate. The base is crafted in an innovative way, molded to a strength that can support a large glass top. For a little extra flair, the base can be done in a smoked version and the top can be produced in bronze, dusty pink, fumé, green or yellow. Even more, the base and top can be mixed and matched to create a distinctive table that fits the individual style. Colorful Classics
Colorful versions of iconic pieces are extra modern.
Vitro showed some fabulous, colorful versions of iconic designs that will liven up a room. This large blue table is the
Trapèze, originally designed by Jean Prouvé for the Cité Universitaire in Antony near Paris. Sheetmetal legs have a trapezoidal shape that inspired the table’s name. To go with it, the midcentury classic Plastic Chair by Charles and Ray Eames has a light silhouette thanks to its metal “Eiffel Tower” base and colorful molded seat. Or, for more drama, another option is the Heart Cone Chair by Verner Panton from 1958. Here, it’s shown in a vibrant fuschia color. Midcentury Elegance
This classic profile is very elegant.
mid-century movement started to morph, Warren Platner created this Armchair for Knoll in 1966. His aim was to show the “decorative, gentle, graceful” shapes that becoming part of the modern furniture scene. His Arm Chair, shown here with a regal burgundy upholstered seat, is ideal for a dining chair or an occasional chair. The welded, curved steel rods are attached to circular and semi-circular frames, and each section is part and parcel of the artful whole. A Chair with Legendary Style
The Barcelona Chair will never go out of style.
Barcelona chair, designed by the legendary Ludwig Mies van der Rohe in 1929 has not gone out of style and likely never will. Knoll says that it is “one of the most recognized objects of the last century, and an icon of the modern movement.” As such, this design has the simple elegance that gives it limitless appeal. There is not a space in the world where this chair could not fit. Remastered Favorite
Even classic piece can use updates for modern notions of comfort.
Poltrona Frau’s capitonné
leather armchair design is celebrating its 100th anniversary with a remastered design of new dimensions and new proportions. The chair has endured for reasons of its design, superior look and quality, as well as because the chair and ottoman concept is forever popular. In collaboration with Roberto Lazzeroni, the design was modernized to be of proportions that fit the modern concept of comfort. Lazzeroni preserved the features that made it famous but redesigned various components to make it more comfortable. The supporting structure is made from solid seasoned beech and the seat cushion is filled with goose down and a stabilizing insert of polyurethane foam, among other internal improvements. The chair also comes with an optional rotating oval plate where you can place an electronic device, a book or other small personal item. Cocktail Style
Bar units are becoming increasingly popular.
Another great bar cabinet design comes from
Ceccotti Collezioni. The NeverFull features an exterior made of solid American walnut and veneered plywood, that has doors and sides covered with solid walnut strips. The pale maple interior contrasts elegantly with the darker wood highlights. The cabinet has six or eight shelves and the various components, such as drawers and glass racks, can be customized to suit any needs. The growing trend of bar units is a stylish one that secrets all the necessities of a cocktail party behind beautiful closed doors. Adjustable Modern Ceiling Light
Modern, adjustable lights are more functional than plain pendants.
Also from Ceccotti Collezioni, this
Folk ceiling light fixture displays the versatility that people are looking for today. The modern suspended fixture can be adjusted to direct light upward or downwards, depending on the type of lighting desired. This is unlike most pendant lights, which cast light only downward. By contrast chandeliers usually direct light upward. This modern fixture, crafted from solid American walnut, offers the best of both functions. Recycled Shelving
Old wooden planks make a shelving unit with character.
With increasing interest in sustainability, Nature Design’s bookshelves are part of the company’s collection made from old timbers. The size and look of each shelf vary because no two pieces of old wood are the same. The rustic, unfinished material takes on a more modern look with the addition of metal supports. Even at one end thanks to the metal support, the open end is left uncapped, allowing the irregular ends of the wood to be a design feature, which is a great
shelving idea. This type of open shelf is also very suitable for use as a room divider not just because it forms an interesting barrier, but it allows the feature of the shelf to be more visible. Mixed Material Style
Unusual shelf supports make a basic unit far more interesting.
Another bookcase that would work as a room divider is the
Tripodio by Mario Mazzer for Bonaldo. the sturdy wooden shelves are linked with innovative metal supports at each end that also add a decorative element. Unlike the typical shelf support, these three-legged elements are inverted, adding a little something unexpected. The shelves themselves are available in different finishes and lacquers, and the metal also has finish options. Fantasy Inspired Chair
A fantasy-inspired chair adds a little fun to a room.
Arketipo’s Overdrive Chair is the stuff of dreams. Inspired by fantasy movies, the tall, throne-like armchair is unlike any other thanks to its oversized dimensions. The basic lower part of the chair is topped off by a winged flourish that is upholstered in a complementary material. The metal base allows the chair to swivel and adds to the fantasy feeling. Casual, Customizable Sofa
The unstructured nature of this sofa makes it very comfortable.
Night Fever by
Giuseppe Viganó for Arketipo is all about comfort. The low, cushion-centered sofa design is meant to be an escape for the body and the mind. It’s a highly moldable form that lets each person snuggle in and find a favorite sport and position. It’s also a playful and interactive design because the cushions can be arranged any which way, especially those that form the backrest. Night Fever is a popular and modern sofa design that is, above all, casual and comfortable. Stylish Console Table
A stylish console can transform an entryway.
A smart and stylish console table goes a long way in upgrading a space. The Terminal Keramik Premium designed by
Paolo Cattelan for Cattelan Italia fits the bill, with its modern x-shaped titanium base and long, shaped top. The back side of the console is flat, allowing it to sit flush against — and anchored to — the wall. This type of console table adds a good deal of flair to a room, but is not overwhelming and goes well with accessories and a modern mirror. A table that incorporated a magazine rack is super useful.
Adding extra functionality to a side table is never a bad thing and this Magazine Table from
Calligaris is a great design. The frame of the table is made from tubular metal and sports a wood or ceramic top. Underneath the top, a luxurious leather sling serves as a magazine pocket. The modern style, including the oval top, is sophisticated, on-trend and super functional. It’s more than just a magazine rack and could be used in any room of the house. Colorful Kids’ Beds
The right kids’ beds can serve them from childhood through the teen years,
The latest designs on show at Salone del Mobile included great ideas for teenagers too.
Nidi showed a variety of single beds in both regular, platform and bunk styles that all make great teenage beds. The colorful components and substantial ladders will appeal to teenage girls and boys alike. In fact, these styles can easily grow with kids from their young years well into their teens. The furnishings are versatile enough that they can mix with almost any style of decor in a kids bedroom and fit whatever themes and interests they have. New Shape for an Armchair
Unexpected shapes make chairs more modern.
Amid all the different
types of chairs, the Parabolica Armchair from Paolo Castelli has some unique features, particularly its shape. The luxury armchair has a delicate shape that fits well in any seating area, whether it’s a living room or bedroom. Named for its shape — a parabola — it sports a gorgeous metal frame finished in polished gold and custom upholstery. In addition, the golden armrests are padded for extra comfort. Golden Clouds of Light
Classic Murano glass is cast in exciting, new forms.
Long-standing traditions of Murano glass making are combined with new designs for this stunning
Golden Cloud Chandelier, also from Paolo Castelli. Completely made by hand, each of the nearly two dozen clouds is made from Murano glass with a triple pass of gold leaf. They are formed in a hand-shaped mold, attached to the metal fitting that holds the LED source and anchored to a metal plate. Arranged in a staggered fashion, the blown glass pendants resemble clouds in the sky and can be made as rounds or ovals. This type of matched furniture is always a good choice.
While designers say that matched sets of furniture are passé, there are exceptions to the rule and the Frame bedroom set from
Georgetti is definitely one. The lines are simple but elegant and perfect from framing the minimalist bed and nightstands. The bed can be upholstered in a textile or in leather — or a mix of both. Leather is often the optimum choice because it is found throughout the collection. The style of the Frame bed is ideal for modern or bedroom designs and contributes to the serene feeling of the space.
