Bottega Veneta presents its new home collection at the ongoing Salone del Mobile 2016

Ever the embodiment of tradition and elegance, Bottega Veneta weaves together a harmonious balance of textures, design, functionality and fine craftsmanship at its latest Salone del Mobile Furniture Fair outing. Created by Tomas Maier, creative director of Bottega Veneta, the new home collection is a reflection of the house's affinity for a timeless aesthetic, fused with impeccable craftsmanship.

 

A refined collection of sofas, tables, and chest of drawers in classic suede and leathers, bold, strong and contrasting travertine, bronze, oak, marble and silver, as well as delicate bone fine porcelain is decked against the exquisite backdrop of Palazzo Gallarati Scotti. The 18th century palazzo located in Via Borgospesso in the heart of Milan, which also houses the Bottega Veneta Home boutique, is a vision of elegance with its coffered ceilings and stone walls, creating a unique contrast with the precious artworks—curated by Maier—on display in the space.

One of the main highlights is a set of bronze tables featuring a surface that pays tribute to the house's signature intrecciato motif, the result of a collaboration between the Bottega Veneta and Italian designer Osanna Visconti di Modrone. View part of the collection in pictures below:
