Luxury upholstered beds – the latest Italian designs

At Go Modern we get very excited when Novamobili Italy launches a new collection. They make the kind of furniture we love: stylish and modern, big on function and swoon-worthy on the looks front.  And they’re especially good at bedroom furniture. Their beds always include great ideas such as clever storage, beautifully upholstered finishes, generous padding and elegant detailing.

So, we’re thrilled to announce the UK launch of some of Novamobili’s latest upholstered beds, including Modo, Brick, and Margot.  And you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to fabrics – there’s a choice of 120, including 24 in leather or eco-leather.

SCHOENBUCH: PERFECTING THE ART OF HALLWAY FURNITURE

‘Feel welcome’ is Schoenbuch’s guiding principle and this superb, luxury German brand is very welcome as part of the newest line-up at Go Modern. We got to know these masters of hallway furniture earlier in the year on a trip to Cologne and we were instantly blown-away by what they produce.  If you haven’t come across them before, be prepared to be impressed!  The company specialises in uber stylish, modular designs for the hall area, in unique widths and heights, with depths starting from just 20cm, all designed to fit the narrowest of spaces.

Schoenbuch’s designers begin with the knowledge that no two hallways are the same, from city lofts to commercial buildings or the smallest of domestic hallways.  The strive to produce perfect capsule furniture collections to suit individual locations. The result: outstanding hallway clothes storage and system furniture alongside smaller accessories such as clever shoe boxes and unusual mirrors.

Turning The Indoors Out.. and Go Modern turns 10!

Well, apologies for our break in transmission… its been a busy few months!

For the whole of the London Design Festival in September, Go Modern discovered its green fingers, as we transformed our Kings Road showroom into a ‘magical outdoor garden sitting room – inside’ to showcase the very latest of our luxury outdoor furniture from Belgian manufacturer Manutti. We were also celebrating a very special anniversary as Go Modern turned 10!

Milan – bringing home all the fun of the fair

The fabulous Salone del Mobile last month, one of the world’s most exciting furniture fairs, attracted hundreds of thousands of visitors through its doors and had some truly amazing new designs on offer.  We spotted so many superb pieces that we can’t wait to show you … so here’s a little taster of just a few of the great designs we spotted from two of our favourite brands.

Bonaldo is always ahead of the design field and never fails to impress us with its inspirational pieces. They also make incredible sofa beds … and what puts them ahead of the game is … that their sofa beds don’t LOOK like sofa beds – that’s the last thing you want in your living room!  The new Bandy sofa bed, designed by Vittorio Prevedello, is no exception. It’s got a great modern-retro look to it along with removable fabric or leather covers, and edged stitching in the same or contrasting colours.  It’s also a cinch to operate with an easy, manual mechanism designed to move the seat forward and simultaneously lower the backrest (because when you’re tired and you want to go to bed you really don’t want to be having a fight with a sofa bed!).

A New Year, with some exciting new brands

As anyone who is familiar with us knows, we like to keep moving! 2013 saw the introduction of several exciting new brands, Brittos (well made, great value Portuguese lacquered & wooden furniture), Mogg (cutting edge designer furniture) & Michael Tyler Quadro (brilliant UK made sofas) as well as the introduction of a range of hand made box spring luxury mattresses to fit our European bed sizes.  But its a new year, and we have several exciting new brands lined up for 2014.

First up, Ozzio Design. Masters of the transformable table, Italian company Ozzio use the very best German mechanisms to create tables that start out as console tables or coffee tables, & transform into stylish full size dining tables. No one has a larger collection of these than Ozzio, who also have a great range of extending dining tables & non extending coffee/dining tables, & their quality is superb, with everything designed to withstand plenty of use & to last for years.  Its a large collection, so we will be introducing it gradually – but we have two of Ozzio’s most popular pieces in our showroom, the Metro extending dining table in tobacco oak & anthracite, & the Box transformable coffee table. With homes in London shrinking we think these versatile tables will have plenty of interest.
