Velvet is the result of a planning based upon the achievement of living and sensorial comfort. This is possible thanks to the fusion of shapes, materials and atmospheres.
The elegance of the most luxurious environments, the purest exaltation of natural refinishings: this is Velvet. What you can admire is the outcome of a restyling operated inside an apartment, located in a new building dedicated to client’s families, of 240 square meters.First of all, the entrance: after you cross the threshold of the house it is immediately possible to admire the main elements that characterize Velvet. The solid central monolith is immediately visible. It includes a fireplace that opens its warm jaws to the open space . This element defines the subdivision of the space between the living area and the sleeping area of the apartment. The entrance is also furnished with a practical custom-designed piece of furniture, characterized by an iron structure with oak hinged openings and a particular mirror insert.In the living area, on the other hand, the presence of warm velvet dominates. In the abundant open space we find three distinct areas: the sofa area, the table area and, finally, the one dedicated to the kitchen. Overall, modern and rational geometries embrace the soft and elegant velvet, allowing the exaltation of natural colors and the clearest distinction of every detail from its own context.
Specifically, we can first of all distinguish the “sofa area”: an important presence of the large piece of furniture intended for television, custom-designed and realized of oak wood (then painted black), brass and sheet metal. Sofa and armchairs are covered with the main element of this harmony: velvet. The setting, in general, can be defined, for this area, as characterized by furnishings with their own distinct details.What follows is the “table area”: obviously custom-designed made, it has a tubular structure with a marquinia silestone top and brass edging. Even the console hanging on the wall is custom-designed and realized with elements that characterize the project: the painted iron structure with brass-plated edge, the painted Sagomato Rovere and the top in marquinia silestone. The “living area” triptych is closed by the kitchen: made up of a concealed monobloc with retractable doors, to which an abundant island hosting sink and induction hob with a sliding top in natural smoked oak is added with exquisite opportunity. Present also a series of comfortable stools dedicated to the “snack area”.
Let’s now switch to the “sleeping area”. This one is made up of three distinct bedrooms, a studium and a bathroom. The common feature of these environments? They are all characterized by the presence of soothing colors and the absence of eccentric details, so that those who live there can enter in a mood of pure relaxation and calm. Let’s have a closer look to the main bedroom: equipped with a retractable walk-in closet and bathroom, we can see the presence of a more custom designed furniture, such as bedside tables and the console / beauty. A delicate wallpaper with a romantic design frames the suspended lighting elements.
Through a studied fusion of shapes, materials and atmospheres, we have thus achieved the most appreciable living and sensory comfort, on which, however, the elegant design is entirely based.
