New collaboration that tells the story of an unexpected, moving philosophy of life in the open air, where design is inspired by nature and creativity becomes pure evasion
The exclusive and timeless elegance of Gianfranco Ferré Home furnishings was expressed in the collection presented at the Salone del Mobile 2018 in a new, ambitious and intriguing interpretation, perfectly in line with the transformation and modernization path undertaken in recent years.
A proposal that, from the formal point of view, expresses at the highest levels the search for a more contemporary style, when compared to the approaches of the early years.
The evolution towards a more essential and less elaborate taste in terms of decor does not betray the deepest essence of the brand that can be found in some key features that have remained unchanged over the years. Among these we find the markedly masculine, Anglo-Saxon and very recognizable taste, always accompanied by a special attention to details: peculiarities that the Gianfranco Ferré Home line can be found in the different formal solutions that have been presented during the years.
From the lounge of a 5-star hotel, to the loft in the heart of Manhattan, passing through the villa on Long Island and the penthouse in Miami, the new collection, in its infinite variations, is the perfect protagonist of ambitious housing solutions, united by the same exclusive taste, both luxurious and business oriented. A proposal designed for the elite, with the typical comfort of the lounge areas and high-level residences, recalling the sets of famous movies or television series.
With its contemporary design, the modular sofa Highlander perfectly represents the eclectic style of the brand as well as its highly-skilled artisan craftsmanship. Customizable in both composition and upholstery, it offers the possibility to mix and match different finishing and processes for each set. An original feature of the Highlander sofa is the possibility of inserting units in rosewood and bronzed brass on the basement in the back of the sofa, allowing the creation of multi-function compositions. The upholstery is available in different fabrics or leathers from the collection, while the sophisticated details in bronzed brass enhance the elegant and sophisticated charm of the sofa.
Halfway between an armchair and a chaise longue, Bonnie has an original shape with the back continuing on the seat, with capitonné manufacturing on the entire frontal part. Sophisticated and extravagant, the Bonnie armchair features sloping back legs with bronzed brass tips lending a vintage touch to the whole.
A new version of the Mayfair dining table, presented this year with a rectangular shape. The top in precious Sahara Noir marble presents a central brass rhombus from which the subdivision of the mirrored marbles originates. The slim legs, with a black lacquered finish and bronzed brass details, recall the 1950s and give the table a sense of elegance and lightness.
Characterized by a steel base with a single central vertical element to support the weight of the armchair, the Sherlock armchair features a complex design and manufacturing. The band that wraps around the armchair creating the backrest and arms is a curved wood with a double slope; a complex element requiring a precise and articulated carpentry work. Presented with a special bouclé wool covering in a refined shade of blue, the Sherlock armchair is a piece of furniture with a distinctive contemporary design.
An original central table that combines sophisticated construction details with luxurious finishes. A versatile composition with moving arms that offer different possibilities of use. The elegant tops in Era Glaciale marble, of different heights and dimensions, can adapt to diversified needs creating a splendid game of balance and contrasts.
A console that combines the simplicity of the contemporary design with a complex manufacturing: the 10mm thick brass structure supports the weight of the console giving stability to the whole, thus creating an original game of contrasts between lightness and stability. Enriched by decorative ropes running along the outer perimeter of the base, the console is equipped with a refined laminated and ground bronzed glass top.
Refined elegance and sinuous shapes for the Alexander modular sofa: a furniture with a contemporary design that offers the possibility to create different compositions, according to the available space and to the personal tastes. Upholstered in blue velvet with tone-on-tone piping, it has a large wooden base with bronzed finishing, enriched by decorative ropes.
