Bottega Veneta adds to home collection at Salone del Mobile 2012
April 18, 2012: Bottega Veneta's collection for home continues to grow in size, versatility, and innovation. For Salone del Mobile 2012, Bottega Veneta has created two new furniture groups, added numerous new styles added to existing groups, and introduced a warm, unique home fragrance.
The first design group, the Bottega Veneta Tassello system, is a family of modular furniture pieces developed in collaboration with Poltrona Frau. The furniture is soft and slouchy, like a Bottega Veneta bag, and made of plump cushions. Chairs, daybeds, corners and backless pieces lock securely together in a variety of configurations. Numerous details, like the carefully calibrated mix of down and technological foam used for different cushions, and the rollers that allow each piece to be easily lifted for moving, speak about the thoughtful construction of the furniture. The Tassello modular seating system is available in suede or soft, grainy leather.
The other new group of furniture consists of delicate 'floating' pieces made from a combination of glass, thin bronze bands, and lacquered, intrecciato parchment leather. Visible screws connect the glass to the metal frame, from which drawers sheathed in parchment are suspended. Viewed head on, the drawers appear to float in thin air. Pieces include a desk with a glass top and two sets of three drawers; a woman’s dresser, with four drawers; a night table with two drawers; and a refined console with a single floating drawer. There is a round dining room table set on a central cylinder with a top of lacquered parchment or oak wood, and a low couch table with either glass or lacquered parchment on top. The entire group is available in the colours pergamena and cigar, with bronze metal, and also in VN leather.
The Bottega Veneta fragrance for home, called Boise, is rich and complex. The scent is redolent of wood and spices. Notes of violet, bergamot, and vetiver lend freshness to the warmth of cedar and sandalwood. The fragrance comes in a room spray and a candle.
The Bottega Veneta home collection can be ordered through the brand's boutiques.
