At Maison et Objet Paris 2016, the new Heritage Collection refocuses on a dimension of luxurious contemporary tones. A refined style in keeping with a tradition developed in top-of-the-line furnishing culture, and which pays a tribute to a unique manufacturing heritage. Skilled craftsmanship and meticulous attention to detail underpin a typically Italian lifestyle.
Furniture and accessories, displayed in a space inspired by the Art Deco period, rediscover an early twentieth century mood in a sequence of highly impacting interiors: decorative themes with references to works by Klimt and Boldinin provide a perfect backdrop to sofas, armchairs, consoles, chairs and accessories.

The collection is distinguished by a rational and well-balanced use of colour whose combination of shades and nuances are brought together in a versatile and variated palette. Colours range from shades of blue, grey-blue and light grey, with the addition of black, white and gold details. Earthy tones are a constant presence, with hints of Ivony and beige, along with shades of cerulean or brick red. Black and golden rust varnishes, as well as the new shades of Prussian blue, are particularly sumptuous.
An impeccable lesson in style, whose success also depends on combinations of different materials, provides a new perspective of classical furnishings. Soft leathers of varying thickness are teamed up with cotton, velvet and chenille fabrics. Fruit of a meticulous and innovative study, the contemporary spirit of upholstery rediscovers metallic waeves and three-dimensional effects. Emperador Dark marbles, for tops, are matched with a Winter Gold finish for the structures. The persian walnut briar roots and the honey version meet Newood and Ebony Macassar woods.
