The centrepiece of the Bentley Home collection at the Salone Internazionale del Mobile 2018, in Milan, will be the new Buxton kitchen, an ideal expression of the focal point for contemporary family living.
Designed by architect Carlo Colombo the Bentley home is enhanced by the new kitchen environment, where the excellence of materials and refined finishes reflects the DNA of the leading luxury British car maker.
A kitchen with couture attitude, the Buxton is defined by a linear design enhanced by an exquisite richness of finish. The central island, made of larch, houses the Calacatta Gold marble top flared at the corners and characterised by a perimeter groove.
The dynamic surface creates a movement effect, while manual sliding panels create an elegant snack-top and at the same time reveal a steel under-top and the hi-tech cooking module. The absence of handles in the doors and the recessed opening emphasise the sophistication and cleanliness of the shapes.
The new Bentley Home kitchen is enhanced with a brushed larch storage unit that contrasts with the smoked and diamond pattern cut-glass doors.
Elegance, combined with luxury and contemporary design are the hallmarks of the Bentley Home collection at the 2018 edition of Salone Internazionale del Mobile. A line of furniture and accessories embodies a superb reinterpretation of the Bentley design code, enhanced by the savoir faire and excellence of Italian manufacture.
A series of settings delineates an exclusive residence with modern flair. The wall claddings in silk, marble and wood alternate with leather boiserie: an atmosphere defined by the contrast of neutral surfaces and brighter shades of red, orange, brown.
The design of the collection focuses on proportion and shape, defining concepts which are balanced and rational in their volume, yet rich in details. New patterns and sinuous geometries are emphasised by metal details inspired by the interiors of the new Bentley Continental GT, as in the new Bampton sofa, whose silhouette is highlighted by a metallic profile.
The Bentley style is also reflected in the choice of materials. The new larch wood, with its warm shades and dark veins, is skilfully modelled to embellish sofa and seat frames, alternating the briarwoods of the collection, or combining it with leather in table and coffee table surfaces.
The upholstery fabrics comprise soft velvets in silk and cotton, while high-performance chenille and Alcantara fabrics worked with a chevron motif in colour patterns characterised by delicate and pastel shades. Stone-grey and quartz-grey tones are combined with natural shades, used to define a collection with a distinctive contemporary character.
