When eclecticism meets elegance

A joy for the eyes

A modern villa projected to enchant

One of a kind and hidden by lush tropical vegetation despite its strictly urban context, this elegant villa is the result of a remarkable aesthetic sense and extreme sensitivity which have guided the choices made and absolutely unprecedented material-chromatic combinations, clear to see in every room in the house. Interni had the pleasure of collaborating closely with the owners selecting and coordinating the entire project with regard to interior design, from furniture and materials, to colours and accessories, all examined down to the smallest details.  With marked personality, the clients longed to create a home that was representative but at the same time the perfect place to spend enjoyable moments with family and friends, where spaces for relaxation and conversation confirm the desire for a relaxed lifestyle far away from daily stress.

Urban jungle

Let’s begin with the outdoors, a space designed to be far removed from the pace and commitments of everyday life and to amaze and welcome guests making them always feel at ease. The garden extends behind the house, hidden from curious eyes, and can be reached by walking along a driveway that runs the entire length of the house. Once you reach the end of the driveway, nothing less than paradise appears before your very eyes; an infinity pool, complete with a raised whirlpool tub, is the showpiece while all around the vegetation encloses the space almost as if to protect it. Beneath the spectacular patio that is created by the architectural shape of the house, we find two Gio tables by B&B Italia side by side, to create one long table where beautiful Kiti chairs by Paola Lenti have been placed. There is also a brightly coloured relaxation area consisting of a blue Ray Outdoor sofa, also by B&B Italia, matched with armchairs from the same collection. As a backdrop to the table and sofa, in addition naturally to the majesty of the indoor living area’s windows, Exteta‘s Prato Fiorito lamps have been expertly positioned to create a magical atmosphere as soon as darkness falls. Poolside we find Gio chaise longues for sunbathing by B&B Italia accompanied by tables of the same name. This wonderful garden is completed by a round Tango table from Dedon with four chairs from the same collection.

Light and colours for unique spaces

To understand the true essence of this home and consequently that of its owners, we must walk through the front door and discover how this eclectic taste manages to emerge in every single space and furnishing element. Just past the entrance one cannot help but be amazed by the colours and light that brighten each room with the numerous windows that open up all around the home. Welcoming us at the entrance, in addition to our amazement, of course, we find a Cubrik sideboard by Riflessi in hand-brushed brass which is set off by several Wall Clips lamps, also in brass, designed by Massimo Castagna for Henge.

With the atrium behind us, we reach what can be considered the heart of the house, a huge open-space interrupted conceptually but not visually by a spectacular winter garden that runs through the house for its entire height.

The first area we encounter is the dining room where a Plinto table by Meridiani, more than three metres long, is surrounded by a dozen Mini Papilio chairs which, with their mauve fabric, appear in perfect harmony with the petrol-colour lacquered table top. Above them a spectacular Ceramic Falls chandelier from FG Art and Design descends which, owing to the double height of the room, stands out with its incredible cascade of raku ceramic elements that, struck by the indirect light from the lampshade, create bright interplays of light which leave you breathless.

Living area

Behind the dining room, we find the living area where elegance and a strong eclectic taste are enhanced by very personal and refined material combinations and by furnishings from the finest Made in Italy design companies. Minotti is the star of this room with a composition of Freeman leather sofas, produced by the genius of Rodolfo Dordoni, and completed by a pair of Leslie velvet armchairs. A round Calder Bronze coffee table and a square Ritter table once more from Minotti were chosen for the middle of the room, instead. An unusual piece completes the living area, perfect for total relaxation: the Scarlett sofa by Poltrona Frau which, like a nest, welcomes guests in a soft embrace. It is impossible to overlook Minotti’s immense made-to-measure Dibbets Diagonal carpet which makes this setting even more unique. As a backdrop and to separate the living area from the office, our team of Interni specialists opted for a Decor Boiserie wall in rich rosewood by Laura Meroni complete with six Light Walls in burnished brass.

Dietro questa parete si cela uno studio presidenziale di tutto rispetto con un’imponente scrivania C.E.O. Cube di Poltrona Frau, completa di una poltrona Brief President, che guarda una libreria Eracle di Maxalto posta proprio di fronte. In questo ufficio c’è spazio anche per una piccola zona relax dove poter colloquiare tranquillamente seduti su due poltrone Brooklyn in Pelle Mandarino, sempre di Frau, che di certo non passano inosservate. L’illuminazione è stata scelta rispettando la classe di questo spazio, non a caso troviamo una composizione di Light Ring Orizontal di Henge.

Leaving the office, we enter what is known as the «Family Room», an area for relaxation composed of a sofa and armchairs from the Edouard series by B&B ItaliaB&B ITALIA where family members can relax and entertain themselves thanks to the freestanding TV station in front. To complete the area, two Cadmo Led lamps by Artemide have been expertly placed on either side creating a pleasant atmosphere in the room with their light beams.

The last (or rather first) area on ground floor is of course the kitchen, very generous in size and in finishes where we find all the conveniences and comforts necessary to carry out any kind of cooking. In addition to the column cabinets and the bases that extend over the long side of the kitchen, there is a large island with a granite top with an almost professional appeal. However, owing to the material of which it is made, it manages to be less technical and bring greater warmth to the environment.

There is also a Leaf dining table from Neutra, which has been flanked by Knoll’s iconic Bertoia chairs. The pièce de résistance is an exquisite 28/19 series chandelier by Bocci which, with its light diffusers in coloured glass, softens the entire environment coming closer to the style and approach of the entire home.

Dreamy sleeping areas

To access the first floor, totally dedicated to the sleeping area, you can take the easiest and most convenient route offered by the lift or use one of the most tangible works of art in the house: the staircase. Made entirely of metal with transparent glass railings, the staircase’s spiral shape gently accompanies those who decide to go upstairs or down. When we reach the first floor, we find ourselves in a space that is influenced, once more, by the light that the winter garden is able to convey.

Here you are greeted by a landing featuring an ultra-comfortable Husk sofa from B&B Italia covered in Lobster velvet looking onto a Play TV stand by Cattelan Italia next to the railing overlooking the dining room below. The children’s bedrooms are located in this section of the floor, each of which features a private bathroom bearing the Antonio Lupi signature, a walk-in closet from Misuraemme, a Randomito bookcase by MDF Italia and a spectacular Lullaby Due round bed by Poltrona Frau that make these rooms elegant havens for enjoying moments of absolute rest.

Leaving behind the area of the children’s rooms and walking along the hallway created between the stairs and the railing overlooking the dining room, we reach the master bedroom. The dimensions are those of a small apartment and the refinement of the furnishings makes everything all the more pleasant. One is immediately impressed by the majesty of Cassina‘s Volage bed with its headboard in white leather, complete with two K-Tribe lamps in contrast with the blue colour of the back wall. At the foot of the bed we find a Volage bench, also by Cassina, offering a convenient place to rest things, while on either side there are two Lou nightstands by Minotti with marble tops, which interact harmoniously with the storage unit from the same collection placed on the opposite wall. There is also a small lounge area in the room consisting of a semi-curved Creed Lounge loveseat and a Creed Small swivel armchair by Minotti. The wall behind the bed hides a luxurious and spacious walk-in closet, accessible from both sides, in which there are two Taraxacum chandeliers by Flos that illuminate the space behind it to perfection. The room is completed by a Tom desk from Porada, with its Andy armchair and the master bathroom, where we find a bathtub, double shower and a beautiful bathroom cabinet exalted by a mirror with integrated lighting; all of course with the Antonio Lupi signature.
