Bentley Defines a New Style Inside; Debuts Distinctive Home Furnishings

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

A new collection of Bentley Home furniture and accessories makes its debut today at the prestigious Maison & Objet fair in Paris. 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 travel.

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.

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 colors 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.
