THE LOVE AFFAIR COLLECTION This exclusive collection, containing six of our most current and iconic designs, is a living illustration of a love affair spanning from our origin in the roaring twenties into the future.

IT STARTED IN 1925 1925 was the year in which Peter Bang & Svend Olufsen began their quest. With this special collection, we set out to capture the mood and style of an age characterized by elegance, enticement and energy. It was a time when jazz music blossomed, and where the young – especially the young women – set themselves free. This was when Art Deco peaked, with its representation of luxury, glamour, exuberance, and faith in social and technological progress.

INTRIGUING CHAIR DESIGN – CALLA Inspired by the shape of calla lily, a flower that can be seen ponds and lakes around the world, Calla chair is an excellent example of perfect Italian furniture manufacturing

This intriguing piece of furniture seems very delicately, with its elegant curves and polished surfaces, but its fluid form does not show any weakness in the design. In fact, the Calla chair is a perfect example of the marriage between form and function and the fact that such a combination can generate something wonderful, powerful and reliable. It was designed by Simone Cappellanti, who is part of the ZAD Design studio, and is made of an innovative material called Adamatx. Available in three colours: white, brown and black.

If you look from a far, you would never guess this sculpture was actually a barbecue Created by Cessare studios, Kara Grill has a circular design that makes it looks more like a work of art, or the intriguing modern art sculpture, rather than something that you can use to prepare hamburgers during the weekend. However, when you look a little closer, you’ll notice that in the centre of two black circles is a piece that is actually a device for cooking food and grill like any other.

Away from its interesting shape, the grill is the same as any other – it uses coal and it can prepare delicious seafood or vegetables, as well as great steaks, burgers and other delicious grilled treats.


Launched in January of this year, the stunningly simple design, available as both a 4-foot-long coffee table and a 2-foot-long side table, is cut from a single slab of Italian statuary marble (fine-grained stone of the purest white). Unlike most furniture that incorporates only thin slices of marble, KGBL designers wanted to highlight the soft stone in its natural state. To achieve this, David Khouri and his teammates chose pieces that are more than 6.5 inches thick and that weigh a massive 450 and 175 pounds, respectively even after the underside has been carved out to incorporate an inconspicuous solid silicon bronze base.

The Manhattan furniture gallery Khouri Guzman Bunce Lininger (KGBL), known for its handcrafted furniture and old-world artisan techniques such as marquetry and leather moulding has debuted its latest addition: The Terranova table

For more information visit:

Deep V-cut grooves on both sides of the table add a touch of style while revealing the stone’s layers of intricate veining, which are carefully inspected for undesirable streaks of orange iron ore. Additional marble selections include Nero Marquina (black with white streaks), Desert Gold (rich cream tones with golden brown veins), Absolute Black, White, Verdi Nuvoloso (white with layers of dark green), and Calacatta (white with thick gray veins). Custom sizes are also available, as are metal finishes such as brass and nickel-plated bronze. For more information visit: DÉCOR Magazine


VG BRAND PRESENT THEIR NEW LIGHTING SYSTEMS VG is inspired by the mysteries of the underworld, such as the stalactites in centuryold caves, the dramatic expression of the long-standing passage of water on rocks. A universe of lacework and embroidery, in which a beam of light is reflected on a drop about to fall from the crystal, penetrating into the darkness of the cave and breaking light into primary colours DIAMOND CHANDELIER (above right) Exclusive and rare, the precious stone was the source of inspiration for the new Diamond chandelier, part of the company’s Arabesque collection. This dreamy chandelier uses primary colour lights to create a rainbow in which to dream. Available in three versions – diameters 30cm, 40cm or 50cm, Diamond can also be custom-made in terms of size and finish to meet a client’s personal requirements.

EARTH LAMPS (right) VG pays tribute to the shape of our planet, where the transparency of the oceans is reflected in crystal glass, the mainland in Corten coloured steel, and gold representing the stream of light from Sun to the Earth. The lamp is available in 4 sizes with a diameter of 30, 40, 50 or 72cm, and it is height-adjustable. It comes in three finishes: glossy Chrome, 24k Gold and Corten steel.

NUVOLA (CLOUD) CHANDELIER – OUTDOOR VERSION (left) One of VG’s best sellers is now presented in an outdoor version, resistant to rain thanks to the materials with which it is made – namely a structure of stainless steel and a shade of fabric. Three versions of the lamp are available, with one, two or three clouds, at a height of 212cm, 312cm and 376cm respectively. Sizes can be customised on request.

NATURE MEETS TECHNOLOGY CP Lighting is proud to introduce the first foray into 3d printing technology: the CP3d Collection. This collection is conceived by internationally acclaimed designer Christopher Poehlmann, digitally realized by studio assistant Casey Gleason and printed using state of the art 3d printing technology.

CP LIGHTING produce handmade decorative light fixtures and furniture designed by internationally acclaimed designer/artist Christopher Poehlmann for residential, commercial and hospitality since 1991.

No stranger to the modern reinterpretation of nature, Poehlmann takes an iconic image of a leaf and crafts a series of pendants that elicit the feeling of blowing leaves. An energy efficient LED engine illuminates the cluster of leaves, which capture its light as well as transmit light and shadow to create the perfect mix of mood and function. LED technology is developing rapidly, but the single most confounding issue from a designer of light’s point of view is that LEDs are inherently directional. How does one deal with a light source that almost exclusively functions as a spot light? Poehlmann started

thinking about that challenge around 2009 and has been using carved acrylic in various forms to capture this directed light - at times directing it into a turned frosted acrylic “light bulb” on the ends of his iconic newGROWTH fixtures, and last year saw the introduction of his Block Pendants and Bessey Sconces using chunks of clear acrylic with sanded edges and carved “wood grain” patterns to capture and disperse the LED light. This year he takes the idea a step further by using 3d printing technology to create shades that absorb and reflect the directed light of the LED - glowing orbs of swirling leaves that cast beautiful light and shadow.

Constantly experimenting with new ideas, CP LIGHTING has come to be known as both an innovator and trend leader in sustainable practices, colour trend and the Modern Rustic movement.

Available from:

24 DÉCOR Magazine

The full collection made it’s debut at the International Contemporary Furniture Fair, NYC in May, 2014 which also marked the 21st anniversary of CP Lighting’s involvement with the ICFF.

NEW ECLETTICA LIGHTING RANGE La Murrina was born on the island of Murano, in 1968, as a collaboration between a few select Master Glass Blowers, whose skill was a gift passed to them from a century’s worth of generations before them. In 1974, a Milanese family took control of the now successful company. They believed in the traditional art of glass blowing and had innovative ideas that would modernise this ancient art form, as well as the company as a whole. This seamless marriage of the antique and the contemporary has earned La Murrina their leading position as one of the most successful and respected manufacturers of Murano glass lighting and décor products in the world, offering priceless and innovative pieces in every genre -- classic, traditional, contemporary and design. Available from:

In a cozy atmosphere, a soft light creates an elusive and mysterious allure: this is Eclettica by la murrina, a new collection that emphasizes the ability of the Murano glassblowers. The art of la murrina, worldwide well-known for its aesthetic research that respects the tradition while looking forward to the future, offers a poliedric and multifaceted selection. Like jewels, drops of hand blown colored glass are embellishing the arms of chandeliers while luxurious fabrics shades decorate the fixtures, offering a delicate and subtle atmosphere. Alchemy, textures, transparency, reflections, art combined in a new style for an extraordinary la murrina design.

Eclettica includes light fixtures, sconces, table lamps, all available in different shapes, dimensions, finishes and designed for a powerful presence in the refined ambiances.

30 DÉCOR Magazine

Melting Pot is a collection of pendant and wall-mounted luminaires made up of lampshades with different shapes and decorations assembled together: a novel Tower of Babel, where the diversity of colours and shapes generates harmony. What emerges is a charming architectural construction, an appealing blend of apparently conflicting characters and styles revealing the talent and ideas of a designer bent on creating a contemporary, multifaceted light source. The lampshades are proposed in pre-defined combinations of light and dark patterns, the former with white interior and the latter with gold interior. The decorative motifs of the external patterns include subtly optical designs, stripes, squares and elegant stylised floral motifs – all the same on both light and dark versions.

reative Director Adam Slade, a textiles graduate of the Bath School of Art and Design set up the brand 2011 (formerly Adam Slade Interior Textiles) with a view to challenging the textiles status-quo and a desire to push the boundaries of interior decor with the use of unusual intricately drawn imagery and a strikingly bold monochromic colour pallet. All designs start with detailed pen drawings by Adam of various inspirations and interest, such as insects, antiques and statuary. These are then digitally printed by a top-end British furnishing fabrics print manufacturer and are then handmade into interior products.

LIGHTING All of the lampshades are designed, printed and handmade exclusively in Britain. Make a statement in an interior space with an illuminating piece that comes to life at the flick of a switch as the hidden imagery within the design reveals itself, or create a talking point in any interior space with one of our hand turned lamp bases inspired by the striking silhouettes of stag beetles. A feature lighting piece is the perfect way to add drama and intrigue to an interior space. CUSHIONS Printed onto luxurious cotton satin using the latest in digital fabric production machinery at a historic print mill in Lancaster, the cushion range is the perfect way to add charm and vigour to a room. A cushion is an ideal way to add flashes of accent colour and

feature imagery to an interior and the darkly enchanting pieces will definitely make an impact with bold surreal imagery and just the right dosage of style and elegance. FABRICS Swarm Design England aims to make the move away from minimalist pattern and abstract design. With a heavy emphasis on detailed imagery and bold colour, the upholstery fabrics carry a strong Victorian feel with a modern twist and are a daring way to liven up any interior. All of our upholstery fabrics are produced to industry standard for furnishing fabrics and meet all of the requirements for home and commercial use. For those who are daring with their interior choices, the fabrics will breath life into a space, public, commercial or domestic.

I have always found myself inspired by the unusual, the unconventional, the odd and the intriguing. My work showcases my meticulously drawn artwork, taken from all the wonderful and interesting things that interest and delight me, an eclectic mix of flora, fauna, antiques, anatomy and statuary, which in a bizarre and slightly surreal way, all connect together to form beautiful and unusually enchanting narrative scenes in the work. Combined with a mix of geometric and organic pattern and selective colour, my designs capture and radiate my love of the weird, the wonderful and the sometimes sinister.

Adam Slade - Director

Swarm Design England is a new luxury interiors brand specialising in highend textiles and products. With a seductively dark and enchantingly mysterious style, all of Swarm Design England’s products are exclusively designed and made by hand in Britain and offer a unique take on the contemporary British interior.

Look ahead to the key colour trends for 2015 with the Mr & Mrs Smith – At Home paint collection from Colour & Paint.

Featuring strong deep blues, sultry reds, spiced yellows, forest greens and icy greys, the Mr & Mrs Smith range has been painstakingly created as a glorious homage to the stunning interiors that feature in their hotels. New England

Introducing the palette is the perky Mr & Mrs Smith Puebla red. With undertones of pink and orange, it offers a splash of vibrancy to a spring pastel theme. For a simple and sophisticated soft grey, the Mr & Mrs Smith Icelandic Pumice is inspired by the organic tones of the island’s arresting lava fields and works well with the stronger accents in this palette.

Smith Ubud Firest

Keralan Spice

The vibrant, verdant shade of the Mr & Mrs Smith Ubud Forest is a natural earthy tone that would make a statement in period living rooms when used with Mr & Mrs Smith Hanoi Lacquer. The blues in this palette offer calmness and tranquillity, which is so often associated with spring coastal inspired schemes. The Mr & Mrs Smith Ontario is perfect for creating a serene setting. This gentle blue makes a soothing backdrop for living rooms and bedrooms and looks great matched with the warm neutral, Chalk Weald. The strong but tranquil Mr & Mrs Smith New England blue is a serious contender for trend colour of 2015 and makes a wonderful option for a feature wall.

Chalk Weald

For a dash of exoticism, add the exuberant Mr & Mrs Smith Keralan Spice yellow – a bold and intense colour to brighten up a contemporary home. The Mr & Mrs Smith Chalk Weald is a light-infused, warm and calming neutral which pairs well with all colours in this palette.

Cosmopolitan Dôme Deco is a Belgian company with a very diverse, international focus. True to both their roots and the changing urban and global landscape, the collections challenge the basic categories of classical and modern. Pieces are inspired by a passion for the exotic and the undiscovered. As such, they encompass a wide diversity of cultural interpretations that are nevertheless anchored within a single, unified design concept.


Dôme Deco challenges the conventional boundaries of interior design with a unique and refined vision. Our collections straddle contrasting extremes in both form and content, sparking an engaged dialogue with any interior.

Dôme Deco’s strength lies in combining a passion for detail, sophistication, authenticity and style into an inspiring but above all honest interior concept. That is why they are adamant on offering a full package - from decorative pieces and artworks to furniture and textiles – that covers an equally full spectrum of tastes. Combine different elements to express your own unique vision on beauty and style.

Contemporary Dôme Deco represents a dynamic drive towards reinvention. Each new collection, however represents both innovation and continuity: a new chapter in a never-ending story. In that sense, the contemporary outlook still rests firmly on a recapitulation of the past. Adapted to the changing values of contemporary society with respect for the traditions that continue to shape it and give it meaning.

ALIVE “Alive” is an artistic theme in the sultriest tones of the season. Deep red with purple and turquoise provide cory warmth. Combined with various metallic shades, this mood radiates opulence and luxury.

EXTENDED VICTORIAN FLOOR TILE COLLECTION Original Style is one of the UK’s leading tile manufacturers and distributors, specialising in superior quality wall and floor tiles in ceramic, porcelain, natural stone, glass and mosaics for both residential and commercial projects.

Original Style, the UK’s leading supplier of Victorian style geometric floor tiles, has extended its range with four new colours, six new shapes and more than 20 new patterns. The new additions have been specially selected to emphasise the versatility of this style of flooring and to show how it can be used in contemporary properties as well as period homes. Research undertaken by Original Style showed that some homeowners were unsure about how this style of flooring could fit into a more modern environment, so the new brochure has been designed to demystify the process and show what is possible.

Original Style products are available in over 400 quality independent tile retail outlets nationwide, as well as 2,000 outlets in 60 countries worldwide.

TOP LEFT: St Andrews pattern with simple border in Black and Dover White. Price: £190.74 ABOVE: Oxford three colour pattern with Melville border in Chester Mews, Revival Grey and Dover White 3 tile. Price: £87.72

The new palette includes three shades of grey from dark ‘Revival Grey’ to pale sepia ‘Chester Mews’ and ‘Holkham Dune’. Also added is ‘Pugin Blue’, a vibrant shade of blue based on shades seen in authentic installations. This hue can be used to add a pop of colour to simpler patterns. As Victorian floor tile patterns are made up of individual tile pieces, the possibilities are all but endless. Original Style’s new tile pieces include larger versions of existing shapes, such as rectangles and hexagons, which extend the scope of patterns further still. To show what can be achieved, Original Style has designed a collection of patterns which lend themselves to the more contemporary hues. These include Scarborough, a chic, herringbone design, alongside Buckfastleigh, which is made up of hexagons. The company has created more than 20 new patterns in total. SHOWN HERE: Scarborough pattern Dover White with simple border in Dover White and Black 2 tiledesign. Price: £86.70

Original Style has also refreshed the traditional designs of its hand decorated range of tiles, such as Salisbury, by introducing a new monochrome colour palette. Previously available in typical Victorian reds, greens and blues, the chic grey, black and white pattern adds a more contemporary edge. Border tiles have also been updated in the same palette to allow for a co-ordinated finish.

The Harlequin Studio has produced Amazilia, a stunning collection of fabrics and wallcoverings based on extravagant tropical motifs in magnificent colourways. Channelling the current trend for bringing the outdoors in, offset against large ‘greenhouse-like’ windows, dark walls and hot spots of colour, the atmospheric collection creates a feeling of both sanctuary and escapism. The collection reflects the vision of Studio designer, Louise Collis, who had been working on it for the last 18 months. She explains her inspiration behind Amazilia: “The initial idea began with research into fashion and interior trends; I noticed a pronounced tropical influence developing in fashion, with the use of exotic imagery and opulent hues, whilst in interiors there is a move to darker, sultry tones and more maximalist prints – large scale tropical flowers, stylised foliage and botanical references.” Louise researched at Kew Gardens, studied tropical birds and insects and also experimented with various painting techniques. She initially worked on finely painted hummingbirds (the collection derives its name from a species of hummingbird) and butterflies, mixed with slightly more expressive ink paint techniques for the foliage.

The result is a sophisticated designerluxe collection of seven printed fabrics (four of which have been produced digitally), four weaves, eight wallpapers and a sumptuous spray-dyed velvet. Glamorous, graphic, with a hint of decadence, the motifs encapsulate the new trend towards the home as a welcoming, nurturing cocoon, enlivened by energizing pops of vibrant colour.

‘bringing the outside in’

DÉCOR Magazine


The prints characterise the collection, encompassing delicately depicted hummingbirds, botanically-drawn butterflies, fashionable feathers, glossy oversized leaves, flower-heads and seed pods bursting into fruit, a looselypainted, artistic interpretation of vegetation, and etched elephants in a stately procession. They are complemented by ikat embroideries, trellisstyle weaves and a stunning, mosaic-like tapestry weave depicting tessellated tulips. The wallpapers continue the tropical theme: some of them reflect the flavour of the printed fabrics, enhanced by an ikat-type stripe, billowing clouds created using tiny dots and a textured-look ‘plain’ engraved from a silk and linen slub fabric. Amazilia’s suitably evocative colour palette reflects the alluring nature of the collection: luscious hues accented with daring brights – the perfect combination to both awaken the senses and soothe the soul! It mingles flamingo with papaya; zest, cocoa and stone; peach, mango and olive; indigo and mustard; gooseberry and lagoon; plus hints of apple, raspberry, blueberry, loganberry, emerald and elephant.

‘Amazilia Velvets’ is a striking collection in its own right: a sturdy but sumptuous spray-dyed velvet, suitable for upholstery as well as drapes, the colour moves across the width, intense in the middle then fading and twisting towards the edges. DÉCOR Magazine

CREATING SPACES IN WONDERFUL PLACES Blackshaw Interior Design is a luxury interior designer and building contractor based in Marbella on the Costa del Sol in southern Spain. The company was launched in 2008 by Sally Blackshaw, a UK born, highly qualified and experienced interior/retail designer, and has since successfully completed both residential and retail projects for many prestigious clients in Spain and the UK.

Sally has a wealth of experience in creating and delivering expressive and stylish spaces. Having graduated in 1999 from the London Institute, she excelled in her field working for numerous major design companies both in the UK and Spain. Since Sally took the bold step in setting up her own company, Blackshaw Interior Design has gone from strength to strength. She puts this down to a simple ethos – understanding the clients’ needs and then executing their project with perfection and attention to detail.

“All clients are different, that’s why we take time to really understand our client’s briefs and objectives. We offer our expertise and vision, we excite and inspire, then we work together to deliver the project to the highest standards on time and to budget.” Sally’s technical background also means that she has the knowledge, expertise and contacts to undertake renovation and major construction projects in both the residential and commercial sectors.

So whether your property needs a complete renovation, an exterior face-lift, or simply a make-over to make it more homely or prepare it for sale or rent, Blackshaw Interior Design is at your service.

“As one of Marbella’s top design firms, Sally’s design style is inviting, yet elegant and luxurious”

Sally is proud to announce the completion of their latest interior and exterior renovation project. This kind of work is exactly what they are used to, taking the property apart and putting it back together again. This particular project took approximately 4 months from start to finish. The villa was in need of complete modernization for an English family’s second home in the heart of the Golf Valley Nueva Andalucía. The client was after a home from home feel - updated, contemporary and welcoming. The swimming pool was redesigned and enlarged and the use of white tiles and coloured water make a striking view when you approach down the stairs, through the double doors and into the lounge. First impressions are all important and the curb appeal was dramatically improved by removing the curved wall and overgrown shrubs replacing them with straight, clean lines giving the impression that the house is taken care of, strong and secure, with huge wooden and chrome sliding gates replacing the old iron ones. Up and down contemporary lights finish off the streamlined look. DÉCOR Magazine


The whole interior ground floor living space was created into one open plan area, but cleverly Sally has given each section its own identity. The log burning 3 sided fire can be enjoyed from all angles and ties the space together. There really isn’t one area of the house that hasn’t been replaced or updated. Brand new electrics, plumbing, under floor heating and air-conditioning throughout have been installed utilising all the latest technology. Porcelain wood effect flooring was chosen, which is homely and easy to maintain. Secure PVC windows were installed, made from sustainable materials with the best insulation systems. Ceiling design always plays a really important role in all their projects. It enables the use of hidden A/C ducting great lighting effects can be created, with drop ceilings for LED spotlights, and recessed LED lighting effects all on dimmers In the bathrooms and kitchen ambient lighting effects were created with LED behind mirrors and under units, counters - a really cost effective way of making a difference.

British designer Kate Noakes has developed a unique process of inlaying metal with gesso on to reconditioned and recycled furniture: extending the life of each piece as a desirable and functional object.


Suffolk based designer Kate Noakes has developed a process of re-veneering old furniture – usually mid to late 20th century - that is in need of more than Danish oil to make it desirable again. Kate applies the designs, often inspired by everyday objects and industrial design, in brushed metal directly onto the furniture, and inlays this with gesso. The resulting furniture is durable and functional. Re–use and environmental responsibility are an important part of Kate’s working practice, and she extends this where possible to the materials used in the manufacture of her work.

Kate Noakes’ background is in Fine Art. After graduating from Hull College of Art she worked as a sculptor using welded steel on public commissions and residencies. Kate launched her first collection of redesigned furniture at TENT 2012 and exhibited there again in 2013.

The artist was looking for a sanctuary – a place with surrounding beauty to recreate and to be inspired from. This was found in a house on the open fields behind the famous Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Humlebæk. Placed in rural surroundings, near the water, it was perfect!

DÉCOR Magazine


So the reconstruction of the house was next: An old, land workers house had to be turned into a modern home, with a lot more light coming in, in order to function as a home as well as a studio. The raw materials were the first inspiration: Brick walls, concrete floors and a huge steel beam supporting the first floor was actually part of the house when the project started. And these were the elements that we decided to make the identity of the house, together with the old wooden beams that were revealed when reconstructing the first floor.

The original concrete floors were removed and floor heating was installed before the new concrete floor was laid out, sanded roughly and treated with a shiny epoxy. The floor heating allowed us to remove all wall-mounted heating from the ground floor and then we rebuild the walls as clean-cut white, matte surfaces. No panelling, just white walls. Since the outside of the house is protected by local architectural restrictions, the windows were kept in the original style. But this gave a good contrast to the strict square window openings.

audio-visuals are projected, amply demonstrates. Roca currently has 69 factories around the world and a presence in over 135 countries. Its Barcelona showroom, which opened in 2009, recently won American magazine Architectural Record’s prize for excellence.

To mark the 2015 International Year of Light proclaimed by UNESCO, architect Attilio Stocchi  conceived “FAVILLA - To every light a voice” for the city of Milan an installation/event telling the story of and exploring the essence of light.

This year the event was built around the key theme Workplace3.0 an exhibition with an innovative concept, devoted to design and technology for planning the workspace. Workplace3.0 brought together the top proposals from the furnishing world for office, banks, insurance offices, post offices and other public spaces, seating for offices and public spaces, acoustics, flooring and coverings, lighting and office accessories as well as audio-video technologies and communication. “The Walk”, a huge installation on exhibit inside the Workplace3.0 pavilions, was conceived by internationally renowned Italian architect Michele De Lucchi as an area for showcasing ideas and design triggers for planning workspaces in their many different contemporary interpretations. New activities and working modes generate new workspaces and new design requisites for “inhabiting them”, with offices increasingly becoming a hub for social interface, meetings and living side by side.

Their collections are meant for people with a strong taste for detail and decoration conjuring two parallels and apparently contrasting moods : classic and modern, each offering a variety of sophisticated hints and inspirations for today’s very contemporary homes. Warm tones of woods, golden lacquers, soft lines and clean graphic shapes mixed to baroque volutes, gold, silver and stunning velvets and silks are the essence of a timeless collection.

At the I Salone del Mobile exhibition Versace once again debuted their latest offerings and this have showcased 2 new collections: LA COUPE DES DIEUX COLLECTION A new line from artistic director Donatella Versace inspired by the graphic lines of the famous Versace Greek key. La Coupe des Dieux collection includes a complete range of furniture for living, dining and bedroom. #GREEK COLLECTION Following the catwalk debut of the #GREEK design at the Fall/Winter 2015 Versace women’s show, #GREEK arrives at Versace Home, it explodes and revolutionises the famous Versace Greek key by innovating the pattern with optimistic emoji’s. #GREEK is used to create the utmost elegant living and dining space.

The new #GREEK sofa is sharp and refined, in grey cashmere quilted with the greek key motif. The structure is in black wood.

A COUPE DES DIEUX The debut style is a chair that deconstructs and softens the geometrical key in gold and gunmetal steel. The leather circular back of the chair is printed with classic Versace baroque insignia, creating a style that mixes the elegance of art nouveau with total modernity.

VIA GESÙ COLLECTION 2015 – Following last year’s debut, the Via Gesù collection is expanded with geometrical shapes and soft furnishings.

The “V” shape defines the new Via Gesù bed with its hand-quilted headboard and the new Via Gesù sofa, now presented in a original modular version.

Originally released in early 2014 Versace has recently unveiled an exclusive limited edition version of the Via Gesù sofa. A stunning piece in black and white leather, it’s embellished with the brand’s signature gold metal finishes. The V of Versace, seen in the sloping angle of the arms, becomes more pronounced with the twocolour design. You’ll also love the V stitching detail at the back and the arms. Each is trimmed in gold metal and highlighted by a gold metal Medusa head. With the outstanding design and easy-to-match colour combination, it’s bound to make a strong style statement in luxurious contemporary or classical interiors. DÉCOR Magazine

DelightFULL creations have always embodied a passion for innovation and a true dedication to the revival of local artisan craftsmanship. However, the brand felt the need to expand and express their love for retro design. They felt restless. So, the Essentials Collection was born. Think back to the retro chic era of the 60’s, during Hollywood’s golden age, when the definition of cool was behind the wheel of an Aston Martin and Bossa Nova notes echoed from the streets of Ipanema. This is Essentials. The collection born from the power combo of iconic design lines and luxurious golden details.

The Monocles sideboard was the first piece of the collection born from the minds of DelightFULL’s design team coordinated by Diogo Carvalho. Great jazz musicians and iconic personalities once were used as muses to create the Heritage collection, nevertheless this time, they decided to enrich the brand’s world and inspirations by adding one more theme and venture into a whole new product category: furniture pieces.

Further information from DÉCOR Magazine


DelightFULL designers were inspired once again by the 60’s and 70’s, the cool era but they took it one step further into the Ian Fleming’s double agents world and added a Bossa Nova swing and a hand full of tropical sensations. Essential’s products range from tropical Lighting fixtures to Rugs named after great movie directors like Polanski, Kubrick, Tarantino and more. The category Cocktail from which the Monocles sideboard belongs, has a selection of cabinets and tables made in solid walnut with golden brass details.

DelightFULL has also introduced the category Lounge where you can find bar stools made in brass and red leather chairs named after great Bossa Nova musicians like Tom Jobim and Caetano Veloso. But the category that has caused more curiosity has been the Cruisers where you have three different types of bicycles ready to make your getaway ride more spectacular.

The Essentials Collection is the ultimate tribute to the secret agent’s world and a bow to the boho chic lifestyle. The most recent DelightFULL’s aim is to be more than a selection of luxurious furniture items, as they aim to redefine a new age through their iconic design shaped between tropical notes and shaken, not stirred martinis.

All That Glitters If there’s one thing those royals liked, it was a nice, healthy dose of gold leaf paint, which you can get at an art supply store. If you own your place, consider decorating the walls by painting your mouldings gold. For a subtle - but still effective - touch, paint a thin line of gold just under your moulding, like a racing stripe. To get a clean edge, use a bunch of business cards and paint down to the card - this gives you an even better line than using traditional blue painter’s tape.

Modern spin: Buy a gilded picture frame, or gild one you find at the flea market.

TIMELESS INTERIORS “I tried to create art from objects that I love, and that are part of my personal imaginary, I interpreted them artistically and therefore stopped them from being ‘short term’ consumable objects linked to fashion shows. I wanted these objects to become ‘relics’ testimonials of a time and a generation mine.” Samuele Mazza’s starting point as a fashion designer has made his style and ideal equation between ethics and aesthetics and in a certain sense, both contradictory and unexpected. He began with Fashion and became a phenomenal protagonist in the 80’s. Although too young for such an unforeseen success, he quickly peaked and made the clamorous decision to abandon being a fashion designer. With a hunger for new experiences he left for New York to follow his passion for art, which he had always cultivated and was inspired by, in particular photography. In the 90’s he collaborated with Mondadori where he went on to edit a series of books dedicated to “Italian Fashion”. He published for Bulgari, Missoni, Versace, Ferretti, Trussardi, Ferrè, Etro and many others.

Always adding variety to his experiences, he organized many exhibitions and created costumes for some of the most important museums and galleries worldwide.

Simultaneously he globetrotted around the world and learnt 5 languages and experienced a memorable collaboration with Massimo Vignelli and Ida Panicelli where he gained a new awareness for set design. During this time he created props and scenography that were so unique that they were preserved after the exhibitions had ended. During this period he unveiled new inspirations for interior design. He opened his first showroom in 2001 called “Visionnaire Home Philosophy”. Milan welcomed this project enthusiastically. Truly successful to the point of transforming “The Gallery” into a brand name, a real style scene. He designed a collection for Ipe Cavalli, where he later handed over the brand to the company in Bologna but remained as creative director until 2010 - without a doubt it became a global success. But, as usual, creative creatures are always searching and thriving for new sap and projects. Feeling restrained he left his role as creative director for Visionnaire and moved into creating statement pieces called “Saint Babila” based on Italian Quintessence. Further down the line he created a new collection of furniture, inspired by being “Outrightly Fashionable”. DÉCOR Magazine

Focusing on his favourites Chanel and Yves Saint Laurent plus manufacturers of Colombo Couture by Colombo, an historical company from the northern Milan. In 2013 he accepted a prestigious proposal from “Four Season Luxury Furniture” to create a line using his name “Samuele Mazza - Timeless Interiors” to furthermore open a whole new showroom in the heart of Milan (Via Turati). Always keeping the ball rolling, in 2013 he accepted an important collaboration to relaunch the historical brand “Murrina Murano” in Venice. Simultaneously designing kitchens for the impressive company Del Tongo and, as if that wasn’t enough, he took over the artistic direction of Medea Contemporary Classics. Always driven, he recently collaborated on the set of the film “La Migliore Offerta” (The Best Offer), by Oscar winner Giuseppe Tornatore, starring Oscar winner Geoffrey Rush. The biggest challenge that now faces him is the launch of his eponymous “Samuele Mazza - Timeless Interiors” collection inspired by the 30’s and the Art Deco movement.

“In one word: tailoring. As it is in the fashion world, there are designers - we do the couture with furniture. I call myself a decorator more than a designer. I was trained in the fashion world, and now I see my work as dressing up homes, this is what I do and what satisfies me. I design what I like with the prerogative that it shall be “timeless”.

Milling around this year’s Salone del Mobile in Milan it was clear to see that the fashion labels have firmly rooted themselves within the home-ware, furniture sector. Fendi, Armani, Louis Vuitton, Loewe, Versace & Hermes to name but a few were all present. So what does this all mean? Gone are the hedonistic days of the 80’s where designers slapped there logo on anything that they thought would generate brand awareness for them plus add a few bucks to their already budging accounts along the way. Today fashion houses think long term it’s about an investment into a unique world because, in launching a home-ware collection brands can spin an aesthetic universe around their fashion line capturing the imagination of their followers, after all could you image a slashed and safety pinned Elizabeth Hurley reclining on a DFS corduroy cushioned sofa? The answer is no, but you can envisage her stretched cat-like across a leather strapped Versace bench. So perhaps this is the answer to the success of the fashion-cum-furniture fusions: It is not fuelled simply because someone buys a single piece, after all there will always be deep-pocketed takers for things that are ludicrously luxurious and sometime ostentatious, but because the home-ware pieces marry convincingly with the designer’s aesthetic, and therefore the followers will buy into this perception, after all surrendering your entire home to a clothes label may seem like the ultimate act of devotion – or the utmost of fashion victimhood, but these extreme examples of so-called “designer lifestyle” have become extremely popular.

Why? It’s simple - fashion designer names resonate with a far wider audience than those of architects, product designers or general home brands. Fashion is loud, it’s sexy, it’s glamorous and it has a huge celebrity following. Design on the other hand is little more understated and lower key. It’s also a stamp not just of quality, but of taste & status, you know what you’re getting with a Versace or Armani chair as too does the person sitting in it because it’s motif is visible for all to see and that is why the fashion designer has been able to capture the home-ware sector so efficiently.

Two qualities for Twist, new stool designed by Emilio Nanni for Zanotta: hand-made weaving and strings tailormade exclusively

Established in 1954, Zanotta is one of the leaders in modern and contemporary Italian furniture design and production.

Contemporary taste, mastery in craftsmanship, top quality materials for strength and refinement, originality and comfort. The Twist stool designed by Emilio Nanni for the range of Zanotta novelties 2014 is an innovative object, adding colour and irony to the furnishing. The designer says: “It took about one year incubation to create Twist. The ideas, for whom planning design objects, come from little social, cultural, artistic and anthropological inputs, sometimes from the cinema or a song. For the stool designed for Zanotta, the will to pay homage to the “how-to-do” so unique, of the Italian productive districts, played a main role. For this specific case: the makers of rod with high quality processes, those who have been selling the best strings on the market for years and those who know how to weave them with skilfulness”. The Twist stools collection, in high and low versions, involves the use of the steel rod painted for outdoors in the shades white, black or red combined with twotone strings made of high-tenacity polyester cords with nylon internal reinforcement. “The weaving, of about 60 meters for each stool, is made of a polyester cord, paste dyed, i.e. the dye is added to the polyester before the extrusion”, Nanni adds. “The intersection of the lines and of volumes, amplified by the weaving of the coloured strings, originates a new and intriguing design. The chromatic warps of the strings create an brand new threedimensional effect, warp and weft join on the rod. The string used is exclusively made for Zanotta, calibrating the paste dyed colour, until the three primary colours get an accurate mélange: for the red one, for example, one hint of

burgundy, one pink and one red are used. Regarding the function, the innovative idea is that to eliminate the direction of use, transforming each side of the stool in the “right direction”, depending on how the final user’s choice. The footrests, also, are designed in order to provide two different heights of support. Twist is an object conceived to add a modern touch of décor to the interior design: it perfectly fits a living room-kitchen, where it can add a strong sign in the dining area, or placed in front of a working and writing desk, or in a leisure area. The colour combinations are: white/light grey mélange, black/beige mélange or red/red mélange.

6 Super Reasons from Warren Evans

Wood is the oldest and one of the most commonly used engineering and building materials in the world. The earliest evidence for a domestic structure in Britain was that of a tent-like structure made with wooden supports dating to 7000 BC! Waren Evans love working with wood, here are just some of the reasons why we believe investing in a well made wooden bed is a good idea. DÉCOR Magazine


1 Previous page: Daydream in teak. Go to sleep on your dream bed. A simple design featuring clean lines with a sturdy head and footboards, this frame easily compliments a variety of bedroom styles. With a robust yet refined structure and raised height providing extra storage space for all your excess clutter, this bed is your ticket to paradise. Below: The strong lines of the Shaker bed design create a classic look that will beautifully accentuate any bedroom décor. As one of the first bed designs to be handmade by Warren over 30 years ago, this traditional, yet timeless, look still resonates with customers to this day, making it one of their top selling beds.

STYLE Wooden beds are stylistically versatile, looking chic and sophisticated in a modern, contemporary, traditional or country setting. And with wood you can choose from many different stains and finishes - to either complement and blend with your bedroom decor or to create a magical stand-out centrepiece that has the ‘wow’ factor.


SLEEP A great bed has two essential ingredients - a strong, attractive frame and a supportive, comfortable mattress. The wooden slats are 3/4in thick and 5 1/2ins wide. These wooden slats strengthen the frame and help air circulate so your mattress can breathe better. Improved breathability lets moisture dry out, so your mattress lasts longer. A drier environment also discourages dust mites, helping to alleviate allergies. All this means you will experience a better night’s sleep.


STRENGTH Wood is a wonderful renewable material to work with, it’s naturally tough and strong and toxic free so perfect for making beds with. Warren Evans use traditional, long-lasting mortise and tenon joints, and FSCUK sustainably sourced wood and their thoughtful design and quality craftsmanship means they can give all of their wooden beds a 10-year guarantee.


LONGEVITY Wooden beds can literally last a lifetime, especially if they are made well. Wooden finishes work well with many interior styles but if you fancy a change you can always sand, re-stain or paint your wooden bed. Whether you’re upcycling or refurbishing, a wooden bed can develop as your tastes and decor change.


PRACTICAL Wooden beds are extremely easy to clean – just wipe any dirt or dust away with a damp cloth. As the surface is protected with a lacquered finish they tend to take knocks and scrapes well – and there’s no major dilemmas when moving home or room as wooden beds can be taken apart with relative ease. And at Warren Evans they can customise your wooden bed – their craftsmen can make the bed a little wider or longer or taller.

Above: The Camden bed is a timeless frame. The wonderful woodwork in its stunning headboard, handcrafted from the finest solid FSC certified wood, makes this bed a real testament to the talents of the bed-makers. The soft curves in its head- and footboards beautifully compliment the natural character of the wood, bringing life and soul – and a new bed – into your room.


COST Wood doesn’t require a lot of energy for its production so its costs are low compared with other, man made materials. Warren Evans have a greater advantage as they make, sell and deliver all of thir own wooden beds, so there’s no middle-men pushing costs up. So do you need any more reason to invest in a beautiful wooden bed – we think not!

All items are skilfully made to order, handcrafted by real people in our London workshop, and built to last using traditional carpentry methods of mortise and tenon joints. All of their timber comes from responsibly managed forests, meaning that you can buy from them confident in the knowledge that your bed frame or furniture has been made with as little impact on the environment as possible.

WASHINGTON SKELETON ™ ALUMINUM SIDE CHAIR David Adjaye OBE is recognized as a leading architect of his generation. Adjaye was born in Tanzania to Ghanaian parents and his influences range from contemporary art, music and science to African art forms and the civic life of cities. In 1994 he set up his first office, where his ingenious use of materials and his sculptural ability established him as an architect with an artist’s sensibility and vision. His cantilevered chairs establish a play between propping and balancing, so that they are simultaneously functional and sculptural. Washington Skeleton is reduced to a fine geometric lattice while its inverted counterpoint, Skin, offers a colorful envelope to the same form.

TRADITIONAL HANDICRAFT MADE IN ITALY Traditional handicraft is the pure essence of Selva furniture. Whether it is filigrees or filet inlays the craftsmen at Selva put all their knowledge, experience, and affection in every single piece of furniture, bringing it to life. Just by looking at the creations, one sees immediately that they have been made from top-quality materials with meticulous precision rather than just being cranked out one after another. They radiate classic elegance and timeless beauty.

The name SELVA stands for creativity, variety, and Italian handicraft quality. Founded in 1968 by Peppi Selva as a family operation, over the course of the years the company has developed into a brand appreciated worldwide and a reliable partner, be it in the retail branch or the hospitality sector. To reach that point, it has been the very special interplay of tradition and modernity and that famous “Transitional” that provides the very particular SELVA touch. And it is the love for handicraft that is tangible in every single piece of furniture.

Available from:

172 DÉCOR Magazine

For many years now, SELVA has been working with several selected small artisan companies in Verona – each one specialised in a different sector – where the pieces of furniture are produced following the most traditional handicraft techniques. The basis for high quality of SELVA furniture is laid from the very first phases of production. The raw furniture is already produced with precision by joiners and artisan cabinetmakers. A great deal of instinctive touch is required for the laying of inlays, which is still done purely by hand. Before starting to cut the various veneers to be inlaid, great attention and skill is put into preparing the paper stencils of the designs of the inlay, rigorously following the most classical models. Besides bois de rose inlays, SELVA also uses cheery and jacaranda wood, as well as mother of pearl and Swarovski crystals. The art of hand inlay using 4 mm. thick saw-cut veneer carried out by SELVA, is a special technique handed down from generation to generation of handicraftsmen. Particular care and attention is devoted to finishes, which confer the wooden furniture their individual antique look. With utmost care and precision techniques each piece of furniture undergoes ageing processes such as faux woodworm holes and wear marks producing an appearance of age and history.

COLLECTION INDIGO: Selva’s New, Retro Modern In 2007, Marzia and Leonardo Dainelli founded the Design Studio Dainelli. They set up shop in the heart of Tuscany, in a traditional rustic house that they modernized from the ground up. The perfect location for giving their creativity free rein and reviving their design credo: bringing back the appearance of forms of bygone eras and emphasizing the simplicity of the features. Impressions, emotions, travels, and observations that have been collected, as well as the needs of the customer, influence designer Leonardo Dainelli in brainstorming. It is a process that is driven by impressions that lead to

the starting point: the hand-drawn sketch. The path to the finished product is a very long one, but at the end, according to Dainelli, “true satisfaction” is achieved. SELVA and the Design Studio Dainelli combine the necessity of keeping alive tradition and handcrafted quality. Thus a harmonious collaboration has come into existence which reflects the designer’s spirit and the furniture manufacturer’s history. Leonardo Dainelli created eight furniture creations for SELVA by experimenting with forms and masse. Memories of times gone by are awakened, and yet something new is created.

INDIGO Dining Table The starting point with the development of this dining table was two properties which, according to Leonardo Dainelli, every piece of furniture ought to have: stability and strength. Thinking progressively, the designer drafted the thickness of the legs as oversized so that the stability of the INDIGO table cannot be missed. In spite of their size, the table legs were conceived in such a way that anyone who sits there has ample leg room. The tabletop with the rounded corners forms a harmonious tension with the oversized, crossed legs. DÉCOR Magazine


INDIGO Occasional Table “Good things come in small packages” really best describes the INDIGO occasional table by Leonardo Dainelli. The delicate legs are made from solid Canaletto walnut and the tabletop from top-quality Italian marble. The fascination of marble lies in its individual grain that is formed by natural processes, turning every INDIGO occasional table into a unique piece. It is playfully easy how it can be integrated into an entryway, a bedroom, or a living room – with its timeless elegance, just the right place can always be found for this occasional table.

INDIGO Chest of Drawers

INDIGO Armchair

The classic-modern INDIGO chest of drawers is inspired by the sense of living of the 1960s. With soft, sensuous lines, the style of that time is taken up again here and is interpreted in a completely new way by designer Leonardo Dainelli. An interplay between geometric proportions and softly curved lines.

The characteristics of the INDIGO armchair arise from a clear use of forms that is appealing from any angle. Its special features are the simple armrests, the fine-structured legs, and the loose cushions: everything, without exception, made by hand in Italy. Anyone sinking down into this will relax comfortably on a frame made from solid Canaletto walnut and top-quality seat and back upholstery. The back is provided with elegant leather straps which constitute the particular detail of this chair. With its harmonious, clear lines, the INDIGO armchair is available in various monocolour fabrics and leathers.

What is characteristic are the gently rounded edges as well as the subtle, vertical handles that provide emphasis. Along with the transverse grain of the Canaletto walnut on the fronts, a lively dynamic exists that brings out the handcrafted production of this piece of furniture.

Born in 1949, and trained at University of Nottingham and the Architectural Association. Coates is one of Britain’s consistently original thinkers in architecture, interior and product design. He has led a parallel career in teaching, design practice and artistically driven, internationally recognised work. His subversive spirit first came to public attention in 1984 with the publication of NATO (Narrative Architecture Today) magazine.

A manifesto for a socio-culturally engaged and popular, narrative architecture, it advised readers to be the architects of their own lives, and in doing so, to radically adapt the buildings around them. Certain themes, in particular that of narrative, have continued in Coates’ designs and research ever since. Beyond issues of function or style, narrative, he asserts, is a language of design that builds on people’s everyday experience. Form must follow fiction.

DÉCOR Magazine


He has continued to explore the communicative and experiential potential of architecture as a language drawn from the commonplace. He believes that the city is best understood if explored as a living organism, and that popular experience and culture are central to the experience of architecture. His work plays on psycho-geographic association between the built environment and desire. Time and motion, he says, is the dynamic partner to the fixed, physical world. This approach is captured in depth in the Guide to Ecstacity which was published in 2003. Art and literary strategies, including the curation of others, find their way into many of his projects. Coates has designed and built influential interiors, exhibitions and buildings around the world. His build works in Japan include Caffè Bongo, the Wall, Noah’s Ark and Art Silo, and in Britain, the National Centre for Popular Music (now the Hub), Powerhouse::uk and the Geffrye Museum. Throughout his colourful career, he has pursued experimental work that has been shown in an art and design context, including such exhibits as ArkAlbion shown at the Architectural Association in 1984, Ecstacity at the same venue, Mixtacity at Tate Modern in 2007, and Hypnerotosphere at the 11th Venice Architecture Biennale in 2008.

He is also a prolific designer of lighting and furniture, with links to Alessi, AVMazzega, Ceramica Bardelli, Frag, Fratelli Boffi, Poltronova, Slamp and Varaschin. He is represented by Priveekollektie Gallery, Holland. Examples of his work are held in collections around the world including the Victoria & Albert Museum, Cooper Hewitt and FRAC. Having lead the Department of Architecture at the Royal College of Art from 1995-2011, he is now an RCA Professor Emeritus, and in 2012 received the Annie Spink Award for excellence in architectural education. His book Narrative Architecture (Wiley) will be published in 2012. Shows in 2012 include Casa Reale at the Salone del Mobile and the London Design Festival, and Picaresque at Kama: Sex and Design at the Triennale Design Museum in Milan.

DARING AMBITIONS In a world where automated, instantaneous and ephemeral production reign supreme, La Cornue cultivates ardour, slowness and durability. They believe the work of a person is worth more than that of a machine. Technological innovations comply first and foremost with craftsmanship. WLa Cornue make their customers simmer too... to their great pleasure! “All good things come to those who wait,” so wrote Rabelais, the greediest of gourmets, nearly five centuries ago.

“Creating an attractive modern alternative to traditional French art de vivre, offering an innovative culinary range, designed as a real professional reference, a line that is as lasting and prestigious as all our others” With this new furniture range, that’s the ambition of Xavier Dupuy, La Cornue Chairman and grandson of Albert Dupuy who founded the brand in 1908. With this revolutionary new range, known as La Cornue W and designed by JeanMichel Wilmotte, the La Cornue name is taking its place at the very heart of our era. Proof that, over a century since its birth, La Cornue is still a daring, innovative company. This is the first time in thirty years that La Cornue has created a new model. It is also the first time in the history of electrical appliances that a stove has been created by a top designer. It has taken four years of development to create this original range dedicated to design and architecture. And with it, the La Cornue brand, the very symbol of French-style art de vivre, proclaims loud and clear that it is part of the 21st century whilst retaining its DNA: the spirit of innovation and gourmet hedonism

The idea for La Cornue W came when two men met around a grand table; it is the result of a search for culinary perfection on the one hand and the interpretation of heritage on the other. To establish this dialogue between past and present, who could have been better placed than Jean-Michel Wilmotte, the builder and defender of the “contemporary graft” concept?The architect has taken the La Cornue fundamentals and reinterpreted them in his own creative style. All the traditional components of

the brand are therefore found in the W range: the kitchen towel rail, the cooking control knobs, the generous size of the cooktop (150cm) and the legendary vaulted oven. All in the spirit of the Frenchstyle art de vivre that is so dear to the brand, but in the radically contemporary look specific to Jean-Michel Wilmotte’s style. The W range uses the architect’s iconic vocabulary: black and brown colours, fine and powerful materials, ribbed lines and visible screws.

A NEW LOOK AT KITCHEN APPLIANCES True to the La Cornue spirit, units in the W range are free-standing, unique items of furniture, a far cry from the principle of a fitted kitchen. No longer a stove but a cooktop with elegant legs. This search for lightness and elegance is reminiscent of the revolutionary models that André Dupuy, the great inventor who ran the Salon des Arts Ménagers (Home Living Show) for thirty years, developed in the sixties to help women forget they were cooking. His range, known as the Cornulyre, comprised units with tapered legs, more in the style of a lady’s dressing table or Hi-Fi unit than a new style of cooker. Today La Cornue returns to this daring, offering a range of kitchen appliances whose functionality is hidden within an item of furniture; thus the cooker becomes a table and the oven, a cupboard.

DÉCOR Magazine


UNIQUE ERGONOMIC DESIGN La Cornue has always sought to respond to culinary demands. The elements in the W range have therefore all been given top ranking technical features. The induction hob is fitted with four hot plates representing total power of 14 kW, i.e. the equivalent of professional kitchens. The indicator lights are located on the sides of the hob, to enable the chef to see them at all times. The polished stainless steel adjustment knobs are on the front, for speed of use. The hot plates are laid out in a rainbow leaving a space in the centre of the hob that can be used for preparing food, placing pans and kitchen tools etc., in this way the cooker becomes a unique area for the entire cooking process. At the controls of this high tech cooktop, the chef is almost like a DJ at his mixing console.

190 DÉCOR Magazine

The development of the new vaulted oven, a speciality at La Cornue from the very beginning, which guarantees impeccable cooking, has been also been a technical prowess. This electric model, high performance yet well placed in terms of energy consumption, already complies with future European standards. It is controlled electronically by sensor and by field of 5 degrees, which guarantees unique cooking precision. Temperature control is possible right from 45 degrees, compared to the usual 150 degrees, thus permitting slow cooking. The peripheral cooker hood is remote-controlled with the suction area located around the edge of the hood, guaranteeing maximum odour absorption.


W hobs and ovens are made in France, individually and to order, by La Cornue craftsmen.

Homeowners in the UK and Ireland love to update their kitchens, with the average household renovating this room every thirteen years, according to the UK and Ireland Kitchen Trends Report by Houzz., the world’s leading platform for home renovation and design. In contrast, US homeowners hold out for 16 years or more, and are four times more likely to wait over 30 years to make renovations. The report, which surveyed over 2,800 UK and Irish homeowners on Houzz, also found that the majority of those who plan to update their kitchens in 2015 are going big with their projects: 49% are investing in substantial upgrades and over a fifth (22%) are adding an extension. Nearly two thirds of those who are working on a kitchen project or

planning one in the next 12 months plan to increase the square footage of their space (64%). Even those not currently renovating admit that if they could make only one change to their kitchen, it would be to make it larger (31%). Kitchen renovations represent a significant investment with nearly half of homeowners budgeting £5k to £20k for their project (48%). 21% estimate spending £21k to £40k and 1% budget in excess of £100,000. The survey found that 21% of people had wanted to upgrade their kitchens for a while and had finally found the financial means to do it; more than a third were motivated by personalising the kitchen in a newly purchased home (38%). It’s little surprise that homeowners invest so much in their kitchens as they report spending an average 2.8 hours a day there, or 12% of their lives. When it comes to making design choices, 63% of respondents agree that having a kitchen that is stylish and beautiful is key. Furthermore, 43% state that having a space that is easy for the entire family to work, play and be in is one of the most important functional aspects. Other design highlights include:

Culimaat experiments. With wood, steel, titanium, copper, marble, leather, carbon, glass, solid surfaces and all the other materials that are needed to bring out the best in a design. When it comes to the materials that they use they have one basic rule: anything goes. Of course there are limitations, but there is always a way to overcome the shortcomings of a material to make an idea work. The material does not hold them back. On the contrary, they push its boundaries.

NATURALLY INSPIRED The LEAF kitchen delights the informed eyes of lovers of clean lines and organic designs. Nature was the source of inspiration for Dutch company Culimaat High End Kitchens. This extremely contemporary kitchen does not follow geometric forms, instead sporting a deliciously rounded organic form. It is fully equipped with a complete set of modern appliances, cleverly incorporated into the kitchen’s design. Hidden away but still within easy arm’s reach, this arrangement of the equipment yields a balanced, convenient and efficient design. Unlike traditional kitchens, LEAF was designed as an open, airy and ergonomic space. Because plumbing, cables and other technical components are vital aspects of any kitchen’s design, Culimaat focused on restructuring the space whilst thinking outside the box. This entailed the integration of solid storage units made of HI-MACS®, one of the unique features of which is drawers that can be opened and closed electronically. HI-MACS® made it possible to shape the graceful, organic curves of the LEAF kitchen, assembled so that its joints are virtually invisible. The smooth, non-porous surface of HI-MACS® simplifies cleaning and also provides enhanced resistance to heat sources and household cleaning products. In this way, the kitchen is completely hygienic, and as such this next generation material is specially recommended for contact with food..

The embedded hobs are flat with a special touch control surface. The round base of the stainless steel sink flows perfectly with the worktop. Storage space has been created in the wall units, where other appliances are also installed: the oven, a steamer, a dishwasher, a refrigerator and a wine storage cooler. When not in use, these different appliances can be cleverly hidden from sight.

The new Air Kitchen is a unique contemporary designer kitchen featuring the best of British craftsmanship. Modern eco-materials and time honoured construction techniques, brought together in one sleek modern retro kitchen.

The Air Kitchen range is an exclusive retro contemporary kitchen inspired by innovative designs of the last century. Vintage automobile construction, the hulls of working boats and the iconic Airstream caravan; design classics which inspired this curved kitchen design of aluminium panels, polished rivets and futuristic push-to-open solid surface doors. Cutting-edge eco-materials compliment warm oak for a contemporary retro designer kitchen.

Sleek, understated units fascias accentuate those pleasing curves which define the Air Kitchen range. Base cabinets appear to float whilst pod-like larder units and appliance cabinets stand on slender stainless steel legs, all adding to an exciting feeling of space and airiness in this modern kitchen with a vintage twist. Air was proudly designed and built in Great Britain for a bright new age of contemporary design; a future classic for contemporary living. DÉCOR Magazine


CRAFTMANSHIP The Air Kitchen uses both traditional and ultra-modern materials, bringing classic design elements up-to-date but keeping the same spirit of adventure which first inspired them. Air is a triumph of British craftsmanship and design. Air Kitchen ConstructionThe process of laminating curved oak for our cabinets gives a rigid, stable curve to support our solid surface doors. Rolled aluminium, riveted to oak frames is a time-honoured method used in the iconic Airstream caravan’s frame construction. Air’s aluminium panels are annealed to make them more pliable and then rolled by hand by our carpenters as industrial fabricators could not match the 1mm tolerance required for a perfect fit. Good old fashioned ingenuity and testing were required to develop elegant techniques to manufacture this innovative kitchen. It’s these traditional skills and minute tolerances that add finesse to the striking forms and clean lines of the Air Kitchen. Solid surface handless doors and draw fronts introduce a new generation of kitchen surfaces, made from recycled aluminium ore and acrylic resin. Surprisingly soft and tactile, these open by pushing a pleasing dimple set in the door for a completely handless kitchen. White Silestone, Carrara Marble, Honed Black Granite and Limed Oak worktops add practicality to this inspirational range of furniture designed to impress for generations.

Devon&Devon’s latest creation, Music, a vanity unit penned by the brand’s Art Director Paola Ciarmatori Tanini, is inspired by the exuberant spirit and cosmopolitan elegance of the Jazz Age. With its refined, compact shapes and smooth, fluid lines, Music unmistakably evokes the Roaring Twenties, a period of frivolity, throaty-engined cars, wild dances and dreams of success, as described so effectively by F.S. Fitzgerald. Music expresses a brilliant mélange of these inspirations. Rounded corners, glossy lacquer, a smooth surface and four slim legs that recall the shapes of a vintage piano. The deep black of the granite top, of the wood legs and knobs alternate with the cream nuance of the cabinet of the vanity unit, imbuing this with both classical fascination and glamour. Spacious and versatile, Music comprises large drawers with soft-close doors.

Those with a preference for modern minimalist styling can often have the preconception that period pieces are excessively detailed or fussy and dismiss them from the design process. The Arcade range, as featured in the Pure Bathroom Collection, has been designed to bridge the gap between period pieces and the minimalist style popular today. Classic Belle Époque designs have been given a contemporary twist to create pieces which embody all the beauty and luxury of the era, yet suit both modern and traditional bathroom settings. The range comprises beautifully crafted ceramic sanitaryware, decadent freestanding baths and ornate shower enclosures. Each piece is crafted and hand-finished with exceptional care and only the finest materials are used. The nickel finish on the fittings and accessories adds to the luxury feel. Stand out pieces from the selection include the Piccadilly Freestanding Shower Temple (£7,498). The traditional feet and nickel finish recalls the glamour of the Belle Époque age and 8mm glass provides a sleek, minimalist silhouette. All of the baths in the Arcade range make elegant and luxurious focal points for period and contemporary bathrooms. The detailing on the Albany Bath (£3,990) adds a luxurious Belle Époque feel but is subtle enough for modern interiors. The Albemarle bath (£3,990); finished in nickel with a stainless steel surround and embracing both metallic and period trends, will add a sense of elegance to any distinguished bathing area. The Arcade range, available from the Pure Bathroom Collection, is the ideal way to inject all the glamour and beauty of the Belle Époque era into even the most modern interiors.
