Bentley is not just known for
its super luxury car range. A new collection of Bentley Home furniture and
accessories makes its debut at the prestigious Maison & Objet fair in Paris,
late January 2015.
The furniture was designed and
manufactured in collaboration with Luxury Living Group, one of Europe’s leading
furniture makers. The collection takes its inspiration from the world of
Against the backdrop of a
1920s train station, twin paths lead from the traditional to the modern in
settings which combine the heritage and traditions of the world’s most sought
after luxury car maker with the sophisticated demands of contemporary life.
According to a press release,
the setting reveals two parallel scenes set in a wide central corridor towered
over by an imposing clock. On one side, an exclusive mountain locale is
depicted through a panorama of an alpine landscape seen from a magnificent chalet in Courchevel. On the other, the
atmosphere becomes more urban, the views depict Viennese palaces, and introduce
an architecture of marked elegance. Together the two aspects reveal living
areas where precious details create a mood of sensory exhilaration and warmth.
Furniture designed by
architect Carlo Colombo creates a lifestyle innately connected to the luxury
experience of sitting inside a Bentley. Sofas, armchairs, consoles and beds, as
well as accessories such as cigar boxes, photo frames and vases all express a
strong aesthetic sensibility and exemplify the synthesis between design and
beauty. The style is conceived to be experienced in everyday life, without
having to trade-off luxury and impeccable workmanship.
The colours span a palette of
warm tones: pale brown, dark chocolate, brick, new praline shades. Shades that
range from quartz grey to Burgundy and from hazelnut to royal blue are also
employed. Elements typical of men’s
tailoring, such as pinstripes, and iconic Bentley patterns, including the
diamond quilt found in the leather of interiors, all feature on the leather:
light, soft and very fine, in shades of beige, mink and cognac, matched with
the finest houndstooth-patterned wool in walnut and dark mocha hues.
New handmade velvets have been
made using looms that can accommodate traditional and complex work processes
that produce fabrics unique in terms of quality and refinement. Patterns on the
range include 3-D motifs and innovative quilting. Luxury materials include
briar root in Chestnut or Burr Walnut used for structures and surfaces. Veined Ebony
Macassar, exclusive onyx and light Calacatta marbles adorn table tops and
coffee tables, along with a new gun-metal finish at the base.
