As one of the most sought after luxury car brand’s in the world, the need to own a ‘bit of Bentley‘ has become an enormous market. The dream for any of the brand’s enthusiasts would be to incorporate its culture, design and style in areas in your home other than just the garage. This is where Bentley Home and Lifestyle products come into the scene.
Over the last few years, Bentley has started to introduce more and more products embodying the brand’s ethos. These have included smaller decor and clothing items and have just seen the most significant addition to the offering. Each new piece, introduced at the Salone Internazionale del Mobile 2018, in Milan, offers the ultimate in sleek and contemporary luxury living. The Bentley home, designed by architect Carlo Colombo, is centered around the Buxton – Bentley’s ultra-sleek luxury kitchen environment.
The Buxton is defined by its geometric and linear design and, in keeping with the brand’s identity, is matched with superior finishes. Made from larch wood, the central island houses the Calacatta Gold marble top flared at the corners finished with a perimeter groove. The surfaces create a warm and luxurious effect that compliments the room and elevates its entire feel. Creating an elegant snack-top, the manual sliding panels also reveals the hi-tech cooking module as well as a steel under-top. The sleek and clean lines are further emphasized through the absence of handles in the doors.
The new collection offers rich tones with contemporary design and is based on and inspired by the new Bentley Continental GT. Its look, feel and atmosphere has been reinvented and redesigned into artfully crafted furniture and statement decor pieces. The metal frames and perfectly stitched leather married together creates a unique blend of up to date design combined seamlessly with a feeling of heritage.
The new Bampton sofa’s bodywork has a soft shape with harmonious lines that flows from the backrest into the armrest. The elegant and organic shape and design is influenced and based on the dashboard of Bentley cars. Upholstered in leather, the polished larch wood frame offers comfortable and large seating. The exquisite piece is marked in the profile by a thin metal thread.
The timeless elegance of this design ensures the ultimate in versatility and comfort. Its clear proportions and asymmetric play of the armrests ensures that the Stowe sofa will not only compliment a contemporary home but can blend seamlessly with almost any style or type decor. Upholstered in soft nabuck leather, the sofa is finished with the unmistakable Bentley diamond pattern on the armrests.
Elegant and perfect for lounge settings, the Mere armchair has been designed with compact volumes in a cockpit layout. Inspired by an illusion of car tracks, an original strip surrounding the base of the armchair is further emphasized by a delicate metal profile. The enveloping larch frame, frames the leather upholstered seat and backrest. Its compact yet elegant design will ensure the best in space utilisation.
Paying homage to the precise geometries that has become a staple of Bentley cars, the Malvern chair enjoys a wide seat set on a slender-legs support frame. The chair further enjoys bold contradictions in its design through the usage of materials. The dark briar wood combined with the light leather ensures that the Mavlern chair becomes a statement piece while still subtlety blending with any surroundings.
Matlock Coffee Table
Juxtaposed elements have been brought together to create this truly unique and striking coffee table. The Matlock coffee table sees two curved modules act as the structure on which the larch wood top rests. Framed by a metal profile, the outer cover fashioned in leather creates a striking contrast and flows perfectly with the leitmotif of the collection.
The Ottoman line in the collection is an elegant and simplistic reinvention of the classic ornament is a wonderful addition to any room. The Dundee poufs are are entirely upholstered in rich leathers and is smooth in the seat. The contrast, a major theme throughout the collection, is once again introduced. In this piece it is embodied in the diamond pattern in the frame as well as a thin metal detail enhancing the silhouette and thusly ties the piece in with the rest of the collection.
