Good design is a situation where simplicity belies the complex ideas required to elevate its nature. To achieve that immediacy of visual appeal, that clarity of function is not an easy task. It is a design philosophy exemplified by successful companies like Apple and Google, and is a philosophy that goes beyond the oversimplified phrase of ‘less is more’. It is an approach that requires a meticulous craftsmanship and attention to detail, and a highly attuned sensitivity towards the user experience. Da Vinci Lifestyle, with over 150 international designer furniture brands, along with the high end designer furniture collection are quintessential specimens of this design philosophy. Listed below are a few luxury Italian furniture brands that illustrate the principle with utmost clarity.

DaDa – Banco Kitchens

It is a common misconception that high end designer furniture means complex, avant garde design that focuses too much on being different rather than being functional. However, luxury furniture by designer furniture brands do respects the amount of painstaking work involved in perfecting simplicity. Luca Meda, the designer of the Banco Kitchens, said ‘Simplicity is not good in itself, but there surely is a type of simplicity that comes from generations of work.’ Summing up the momentous effort demanded in order to achieve a respectable form of simplicity.

Despite its unassuming appearance, the Banco Kitchens concentrate the washing and cooking functions into a self-supporting structure. It is offered mainly in black and white, keeping the stark appearance that’s striking in an understated manner. The combination of myriad functions into a classic recognizable design is illustrative of how simplicity in design is not only a difficult task, but one that denotes masterclass level of craftsmanship.

Minotti – Dan Table

The starting point of a luxury home furniture by a high end luxury furniture brand has to be simple in order to have the potential to be a masterpiece of simplicity. With the starting point of a circle, the Dan Table dives deep into the possibilities inherent within the perfect shape, exploring the ways that a luxury Italian office furniture can go beyond mere functionality, and into the realms of artistic expression. This is achieved with impeccable grace, taking inspiration from the minimalist movement combined with Minotti’s savoir-faire and the designer Christophe Delcourt’s eye for intricate details. In a less secular society, it would be no surprise if this table is inducted into a pantheon of divine beings for its transcendental qualities.

B&B Italia – Atoll

While the idea of simplicity in design seem like a modern concept, it is a philosophy embraced since ancient times. The modern idea of simplicity is a reinterpretation of classic theories, bringing an innovative, updated sensibility to the table of tools that provide a rough around the edges, raw animalism in approach. B&B Atoll is a collection that pays homage to these classic ideas while seamlessly weaving the sensitive touch of modern understanding to its design. It is a modular seating system designed by Antonio Citterio, a designer with a refined sense of aesthetic balance, bringing a note of elegance to a timeless style. Beyond aesthetics, the B&B Atoll represents the epitome of versatility, with a design that fits both formal and informal settings, and a smooth pairing of functionality with comfort.

It is an art to embody style while having it seem effortless. It takes an exquisitely delicate touch to be truly effortlessly stylish. It is an approach that requires a meticulous craftsmanship and attention to detail, and a highly attuned sensitivity towards the user experience. It also requires a talent to complement multiple furniture to achieve a holistic dynamic while avoiding excessive opulence and gaudiness. Da Vinci Lifestyle, with over 150 international designer furniture brands, along with the high fashion furniture brands are able to provide a plethora of options on the road towards being effortlessly stylish. Listed below are a few luxury Italian furniture that, with their versatility, provide an infinite number of ways to elevate the overall aesthetics of a space.

Bottega Veneta 2018 Collection

It is a common misconception that high end designer furniture means big items and the wholly tangible. Luxury furniture by designer furniture brands take the crucial step beyond the physical realm, right down to the intangible but influential parts of interior design. Ease is the unsung hero of any meticulously designed space. It is essential to allow the visual aspect of everything to be appreciated without any mental strain, so it is worth putting the spotlight on the collection as a whole this time.

The bronze style of the furniture add a rustic charm that is easily complemented with most patterns, be it a bombastic maximalistic design or a more subdued, classical design theme. Designed in collaboration with Osanna Visconti di Modrone, they are made with a lost-wax technique to echo the intrecciato weave.

 
 

Etro Autumn Winter 18 – 19 Home Collection 

The patterns of a luxury home furniture by a high end luxury furniture brand has to be gingerly selected to best fit both within the holistic perspective of a collection, and to be flexible enough to fit into spaces and look like they’re meant to be. Inspired by mythological prints and Navajo geometries, floral embroidery and British-inspired tartan, this collection embraces the maximalist trend showcased exquisitely over Milan Design Week 2018, proving how a luxury Italian home furniture can embrace a louder design theme without it becoming overwhelming. The paisley motif invokes elements of tribal ancestry, adding a spiritual zen ambience to the overall design. The choice of colors is noteworthy, due to the sheer amount of palettes that combine into a cohesive whole. Yet, the hues do not clash, and are subdued by just the right amount to retain that feature of versatility to fit into a myriad of room themes.

 
 

Gianfranco Ferre Highlander Modular Sofa

When it comes to being effortlessly stylish, the word elegant fits the bill perfectly. The vibe of being high class, and having a place look like that is its natural state; the air of nobility that permeates, with a hint of contemporary jazziness. Elegance is truly an international style. The Highlander Modular Sofa’s contemporary design adds an aristocratic charm to a room, a feat only possible thanks to its highly-skilled artisan craftsmanship. Its modular nature allows for the possibility to mix and match different finishing and processes for each set; a highly flexible feature that allows one to spice up a room through simple, effortless rearrangement.

For Natuzzi, Marcel Wanders has now created the “Agronomist” and the “Oceanographer” collections (2018). Various types of home furniture products are designed to dialogue and complement each other, forming two complete and harmonious lifestyles that exude the mood and essence of Puglia. “I felt it was truly an honour and also our responsibility to really bring the parts of the surrounding areas into the design. When we are able to incorporate the local culture and natural beauty of a region it allows the furniture to then create a sense of place” said Marcel Wanders. “The challenge was to keep the themes running through each piece within a set and to make each set truly distinct. The many unique natural elements and the region’s rich artisanal history gave us wonderful freedom in our colour pallet, crafting techniques and shapes” said Gabriele Chiave, Creative Director at Marcel Wanders.
