Bentley designs home range
Bentley has partnered with luxury furniture maker Club House Italia and architect Carlo Columbo for the development of its new Bentley Home Collection.
Inspired by the craftsmen and their skills which make the company’s cars so special, Bentley has launched the Bentley Home collection of furniture for luxury homes and offices.
Consisting of five lines with very English-sounding names, the choice of colors, materials, textures and finish for each will be more than familiar to existing Bentley owners, while build quality, proportions and style will be equally familiar to existing clients of the Europe’s best furniture makers as Italian studio Luxury Living has brought the pieces to life in partnership with Bentley.
Highlights of the collection include the Richmond line of seating — a sofa, chaise longue and armchair — where the external frame of each piece can be dressed in wooden veneer or leather while cushions and seats can be finished in leather, cashmere, velvet or linen.
The Canterbury is an imposing yet inviting bed with a leather or fabric headboard and an intriguing duvet cover made with Fibra di Legno, a fabric created from wood pulp, chosen because of its superior softness and smoothness.
The Bentley Home collection also features a meeting table and chair set, wood and leather storage cabinets and the Harlow coffee table which can be specified with an onyx top.
A number of the pieces made their international debut in the Bentley suite at the St Regis Hotel, New York, which was unveiled in September.
