Bentley shows Home Collection at Milan Salon de Mobile
Bentley Motors introduces its complete Home Collection for the first time at Salon del Mobile 2014, designed and manufactured in collaboration with Luxury Living Group, one of Europe’s leading furniture makers. The collection is inspired by the renowned craftsmanship and exquisite materials that characterise the interiors of all Bentley models.
Elegant, sophisticated and glamorous, the Bentley Home Collection furnishings and decorations have been created by architect Carlo Colombo, in collaboration with Bentley’s head of Product Design, Daniele Ceccomori, defining a new ultra-luxury model for home and executive interiors.
The collection is an exercise in subtlety, incorporating functional performance with comfort and luxurious, sensuous quality. It captures the style of the Bentley driver through items that mirror the impeccable quality and attention to detail of the Crewe-based marque. The colour palette is characterised by natural and pastel nuances, including mocha, cognac, taupe, quartz, grey and camel flanked by variations of purple-red, burgundy, brick red or blue.
The use of tactile leather and sensuous textiles is seen throughout the collection. Hints of male attire, pinstripe or hounds-tooth, are introduced into sophisticated velvets and the lightest of cashmeres, crafted with three-dimensional patterns.
Utilised in the upholstery, they are also woven as novel and precious carpets – hand-knotted, made of fine wools, silk or pashmina – as well as refined blankets hemmed in mink. Finely crafted leather upholstery - with its signature quilted diamond pattern or elegant padded texture - further enhance the collection’s pieces.
Kevin Rose, Board Member for Sales & Marketing, comments:
“It is a signature moment for Bentley’s entire Home Collection to be exhibited at the Salon del Mobile in Milan. The collection embodies Bentley’s emergence as a modern high luxury brand. It combines sophisticated materials with contemporary design and the ultimate in bespoke craftsmanship. This exciting collaboration captures the shared values of Bentley and Luxury Living, with unrivalled attention to detail and a stunning translation of the timeless style of the brand into home and executive suite interiors.”
Alberto Vignatelli, CEO and chairman of the Luxury Living Group, says:
“We accepted with enthusiasm the challenge of interpreting in furnishings the exclusivity and charm of Bentley. In the Bentley Home collection there co-exist a passion for details, care of materials and a style that anticipates the trends while remaining true to the codes of elegance and tradition. The perfect synthesis of values, the same we find at the wheel of a Bentley. I strongly believe in this collection which is already attracting acclaim internationally.”
