This year more than ever we agree with the choice of the Pantone Color Institute experts. We think that the Living Coral will not only well interpret the character of next year, but will also be the right color to create the classics of tomorrow, pieces that escape the austere gloom of the past and take on new liveliness and colour, stylishly furnishing the present while keeping the classy elegance of its origins.

Living Coral is a warm, peachy orange nuance with a “golden undertone that energizes and enlivens with a softer edge”. According the experts it symbolize “our innate need for optimism and joyful pursuits”.

“PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral emits the desired, familiar, and energizing aspects of color found in nature. In its glorious, yet unfortunately more elusive, display beneath the sea, this vivifying and effervescent color mesmerizes the eye and mind. Lying at the center of our naturally vivid and chromatic ecosystem, PANTONE Living Coral is evocative of how coral reefs provide shelter to a diverse kaleidoscope of color”

In 2019, therefore, we will have a good excuse to use coral, one of the colors that we believe are most suitable for enlivening the more classic pieces and for emphasizing a design with not very elaborate shapes. The right color to create a discreet luxury that does not shout but whisper to our senses.

We love to reinvent the classic pieces by mixing styles, colors and inspirations, but sometimes an ancient romantic vein prevails and leads us to the pure classic style, the sober and elegant authentic French taste …

In these moments our choices colors fall on colors rich in history and meaning like the French Blue, one of the most refined nuances in history. French Blue has been used in the heraldry of the French monarchy since the 12th century, with the golden fleurs-de-lis of the kings always set on a blue heraldic azure background, thus the other name “Royal Blue”.

French blue is a shade of azure, but often mistakenly used for greyish-blue colors. A delicate and sophisticated nuance, perfect to decorate a contemporary style private retreat, a restful bedroom in which shades of grey, precious Louis XVI style handmade carvings and golden accents create an atmosphere of quiet and noble beauty.

Ultra violet is the color that, according to Pantone Color Institute experts, will better interpret the character of this year. It is a “complex and contemplative” color that, like our times, pushes on individualism, spurring people “to imagine their unique mark in the world”.

Ultra violet is a “a dramatically provocative and thoughtful purple shade” that “communicates originality, ingenuity, and visionary thinking that points us toward the future”. It is a bright and luxurious color that we adore because matched with gold, wood and patinated brass creates a perfect balance between the royalty and stateliness of the past and the eccentricity and unconventionality of the present.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Stars -bright, shiny, precious- are an extremely refined decorative element, especially when mixed with the classic style. We used them to give a new light to an old French-style medallion armchair and to decorate the glass top and the central drawer of a console table of the early 20th century.

 

 

For some time in our style office has spread the cacti mania! They are everywhere: on walls, clothes, computer desks, and now on our pieces! We find them adorable, perfect to match with the curved shapes of the French style Louis XV and adaptable to any setting, just like our furniture!

 

In the last few months, we are witnessing to a real pink invasion everywhere: fashion, cinema, design, home decoration.
The most pervasive tone is the “millenial pink”, a delicate and feminine shade we couldn’t resist to! So, here’s our tribute to this trend, a super-Frenchy pink lacquered chest of drawers.  An hymn to feminine romanticisme and levity, to elegance and care of details, to sophistication and simplicity.

 

Teal is a rare, assertive, elegant color. It’s not green or blue. It’s teal! It’s the new color that did not exist, and it has replaced black in the world of luxury and exclusiveness. We love teal because it is a versatile color that’s perfect for a classic decor because it goes so well with wood. We also combined it with gold and natural hues such as taupe and beige: fabulous!

 

 

 

We’ve fallen in love with the fringed foliage of palms and ferns, giant leaves, toucans and the vibrant colors of the tropics, so we decided to dedicate a few pieces of our collection to this theme that’s wild yet relaxing. Here’s the result…

 

 

What happens when Italian elegance and an attention to detail arrive in China? Spaces generally designed to be sleek and functional become luxurious and customized, expressing elegant, timeless moods. Here’s an example of this in a project created for a client in Thaizhou who asked us to customize the pieces and select the best decor elements to complete the ambiance and enhance the product.
