De’ Medici living room 20.11.2017
The fine De’ Medici living room expresses immediate sensations of ease and wellbeing, every detail being carefully defined, gratifying the sight and the senses. Roberto Giovannini suggests a new way of experiencing living spaces, where luxury embraces the quest for comfort, enabling the enjoyment of daily life with harmony and ease.
At centre stage in the living room there is the set in Tuscan style Louis XV, consisting of a large sofa (art.1404) and armchairs (art.1405) with carved bases enhanced by Oro Decapé Antico (Antique Gold Decapé) finishing. The sofa may be personalised in its finishings and upholstery; it is adaptable to any type of décor and can, in fact, be made in two, three or even four seated versions according to the size of the space where it is located.
The upholstery of the sofa and the lounge armchair is realised in Jim Thompson silk velvet, enriched with the finest custom made marabù, defining the edges, tone on tone in the exquisite fabric.
Completing the relaxation area, there is the small, round, finely engraved sofa side-table (art.1141) with marble top and the distinctive French inspired coffee table (art.1402), an authentic expression of the Neoclassical style of the late 1700s, better known as ‘Regency’, with structure decorated in Oro Decapè Antico (Antique Gold Decapé) and top in Estremoz marble.
Illuminating the living room, there is the impressive 15-light chandelier (art.1036M) with Bianco Fiorentino (White Florentine) decoration, while the standard lamps (art.896) with their feminine and curved forms, light up the reading corners. Wall mirrors, accessories and console tables contribute to enhancing and completing the De’ Medici living room.
To make the living area even more welcoming, Roberto Giovannini proposes the sumptuous bergère armchair (art. 1009) with stool (art. 1010), with their classic contours but modern day allure evoked by the Jim Thompson fabric with its optical design and in-vogue Noir (Black) decorations.
The Neoclassical style ‘fireplace’ (art.1297) completely finished in silver leaf completes the living room décor, transmitting sensations of pleasing warmth. This is really a decorative frame, a precious accessory which Roberto Giovannini has created for embellishing hearth-places or for being placed in rooms without a fireplace corner, as a purely ornamental element for decorating a wall and evoking the effect of a real fireplace. Here, it is presented with an elegant matching mirror with antique-style finishings.
And so, with Roberto Giovannini, the ‘classic’ enters into modern day living spaces: unusual and surprising forms thanks especially to the possibility of personalisation and the ability to satisfy the most sophisticated aesthetic requirements without ever neglecting the concept of functionality.
