In a modern home, a dining room is at least as important as a living room or a bedroom. How could it be otherwise? Your breakfasts and lunches (not to mention romantic dinners for two) will be more delicious if you eat them sitting at a nice dining table on a comfortable dining chair. Besides, it’s common knowledge that any food will be much more healthful if you enjoy your meal.
Moreover, people who eat with relish get more pleasure from life. Do you agree with this? If you enjoy living well, you most likely do.
Bellavista Collection’s showcase at Salone Internazionale del Mobile 2019 was all about living well. Ever since 1980s, the entire world knows that ‘living well’ is ‘dolce vita’ in Italian. That’s the very idea of Bellavista’s 2019 collection of Italian luxury furniture displayed at iSaloni this April.
Bellavista’s exhibition stand at the Salone resembled an apartment, divided into several zones, sophisticatedly furnished with the showpieces. Generally speaking, the booth looked like a dream of an apartment – with a dream of a bedroom, living room, and a dining room.
The dining zone of Bellavista’s both was clearly visible from the central passageway, so passers-by could see it – and many of them dropped in.
The area included a dining table, two types of chairs around it, two sideboards, and a chandelier hanging over the entire ensemble.
QUATTRO PASSI table stood in the center and dominated the dining zone. Designed in 2019, this remarkable item was presented to the public at the Salone for the first time. Its wooden top and four legs were veneered with ebony – Bellavista’s one of the most favorite materials. The details at the ends of its legs were made of aluminum, with GOLD finish, which is among the newly adopted ones.
On a table, there was an item that turned visitors’ heads at least as effectively as the table itself. It was IPPO – a fancy-looking cast brass tray for candles, decorated with figures of bathing and walking hippopotamuses.
The two types of chairs round the table looked differently but harmonized with one another and the table really well.
The newly designed BRISTOL chair looked exceptionally elegant thanks to the combination of dark wood (solid moka-stained beech) and light-colored leather upholstery. It was clear from the first sight that this chair was equally beautiful and comfortable. It had partly upholstered arms and a knob at the back, which helps to move the chair easily. The brass knob with antique bronze finish looked so good that it served kind of a decoration, in addition to its utilitarian function. 56 centimeters (22 inches) wide and 65.7 centimeters (25.9 inches) deep, it looks like a super-compact armchair. It seems that this dining chair can well be placed at a writing desk – so cozy it is.
Like BRISTOL, KATE chair was upholstered in leather, but its color was blue. This item wasn’t actually a novelty: it had already been shown in Salone … Read More
