Giellesse ‘Night’ collection from Milan

Giellesse design and manufacture contemporary furniture for the modern home. The new additions to the ‘Night’ collection displayed at this years Milan furniture fair, demonstrates their attention to trends, technology and quality design.

The highlight for us at Abitalia was the complanare wardrobe called, ironically, 'Basic.' The sliding mechanism is actually beautifully engineered and complex, yet this is hidden by the simplicity of the sliding wardrobe with details such as the recessed handle and the clean single face of the wardrobe doors.

The second highlight was the latest configuration of the popular 'Arizona' hinged wardrobe. The subtle handle, almost like a ribbon, runs across the face of the wardrobe. Twisting to create the handle, the soft detail is beautifully executed. Available both in matt lacquer and oak veneer, the hinged wardrobe will continue to be a favourite for clients.

The final highlight from the bedroom collection, was the introduction of a new melamine finish available for both walk in wardrobes and the internal structures. The ‘nordic larch’ melamine replaces the natural oak within the collection.

This years stand was evidence of a solid family owned company producing quality furniture without compromise. The quality of finishes, mechanisms and materials are excellent. Giellesse remains our preferred supplier of bedroom furniture and we look forward working with them on projects in the year ahead.

Abitalia work with Giellesse to design and produce beautiful pieces of quality bespoke bedroom furniture. Based in Cheltenham, though working throughout the country, the team at Abitalia are able to design, supply and install furniture for your home or project.

Cavità di pietra e continuità spaziale


An insight into Pibamarmi’s stand at the Milan Fair next month. Designed by Manuel Aires Mateus for the Internazionale del Bagno 2012, the incredible series of stone objects and surfaces that have a beautiful continuity. The natural beauty of the stone with Pibamarmi’s artisan touch create beautiful relationships within the space.

Abitalia work with Pibamarmi to create unique contemporary bathrooms. Few companies can treat the stone on the same capacity as Pibamarmi. The attention to the finish, whether marble or natural stone, makes this company stand apart. For more information about Pibamarmi, or would like Abitalia to design your bathroom, please contact us.

Mews 02 by Andy Martin Architects

This fantastic piece of architecture is the work of Andy Martin Architects, an established contemporary architectural practice, directed by Australian born Andy Martin.

The building used to be that of a mechanics garage until Andy Martin redesigned it into a four storey, single family residence. The idea was to emphasise the outdoor area and entertaining spaces, done so by using entire glass windowed walls, bringing the outside in and vice versa. 

Charcoal blocks and white plastered brick run the full length of the house, continuing the invisible line dividing out and in. Innovative glass window doors are used creating an elegant entrance to the garden area.

Andy Martin Architects will be presenting their latest project at the Milan Fair this April which Abitalia are attending. We hope to see some of their creative, contemporary ideas in person.
