The fabulous sofa you can see in our Christmas window is the Marc-U and we’ve had this one covered in a luxuriously rich velvety red fabric as befitting the season. Standing alongside the Marc-U is the stylish Mogg TRI.BE.CA. floor lamp, designed by Marzia & Leonardo Dainelli, with it’s clever USB dock built into the bottom shelf. This one’s in matt black but it’s also available in white. And to ward off the winter cold, our eco-friendly bio-ethanol fire from Cocoon is keeping the showroom nice and toasty.

Italians, it’s always said, love babies and children, and nothing proves this more than the latest designs from Italian brand Battistella and their Nidi range of children’s furniture. We’re so impressed with their latest original, contemporary designs which combine style, imagination and tons of practical ideas. There are three collections to choose from based around the themes of art, nature …. and fun!
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!).
Italian design has always pushed the boundaries – across fashion, art, architecture… it whole-heartedly embraces the avant-garde. Think of the theatricality of Versace, the revolutionary Renaissance architecture of 15th century Florence or the rebellious drama of Caravaggio.
So when we found brand new Italian furniture and accessories company Mogg, a company representing the best of this Italian tradition, we were more than a little excited! Mogg (MObilli = furniture & OGGetti = objects) was founded by architect Nicola Galbiati in 2012, and his company works with a range of award-winning designers – many established names in their own fields of art, architecture or furniture design – or as Galbiati puts it “partners of vision – crazy dreamers”. Their idea is to “limit the boundaries between art and design” and the result – a collection of exciting new furniture and accessories that we think are not only stunning designs for the home, but true investment pieces for tomorrow.

Many bedrooms these days are much smaller than we would like, especially in major cities like London, New York, Tokyo & Paris – & its not likely that this will change at any time in the near future! So, it’s time to get inventive when it comes to modern bedroom furniture, & fortunately with the advent of the internet we have plenty of options. Continue reading “6 ways to decorate a small bedroom”
