The BPA International Dave sofa with scatter cushions and full removable covers, £4,000 and the BPA Jill chair, £5,800 in a tan leather work great with the wooden flooring and neutral tones of the walls and furniture.

Gan rugs from Abitalia

Canevas from Gan rugs

The last blog post from us today(!). A new collection of rugs from the Spanish company Gan / Gandia Blasco. We thought this collection was beautiful. There’s something contemporary and yet nostalgic. The pixel form of the graphic or the passing of time is reflected in stitching technique. Designed by Charlotte Lancelot, the collection will be available soon from Abitalia. If you’re looking for a rug for your home, contact us for more information about Gan rugs.

We like Rememberme from Casamania

Casamania - Rememberme chair

Though it isn’t new for 2012, we do like this gem from Casamania - we saw it again at the Milan fair last week. The Rememberme chair from Casamania was designed in 2011 by Tobia Juretzek. A playful piece that calls on the current focus on sustainability and recycling - Rememberme is entirely made  from old jeans. Available from Abitalia, the completely unique chair is £598 (inc vat and UK delivery)

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.

Giellesse bespoke wardrobes

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.

Be sure to look our for our recent Giellesse project being published in 25 Beautiful Homes. We’ll blog the article as soon as the magazine’s on sale.

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.

Traditional meets contemporary

This Edwardian Grade II listed building was erected in 1910, it has since had an extension in 1937 and now a second contemporary extension in 2012.

The brief was to create a contemporary luxury hotel that would fit sympathetically into it’s existing Edwardian surrounds. 

The challenge of placing modern living within a traditional architectural space is something that Abitalia faces on a regular occurrence. Abitalia take careful consideration over every aspect of a project and pride ourselves on our attention to detail. 

Contemporary furniture can certainly sit within the walls of another era beautifully. The comparison between sleek, simple furniture and ornate, decorative walls can compliment each other perfectly. 

If you have a Regency, Edwardian or any other style of architectural building and are looking to re design with contemporary furniture and fixings, why not email Abitalia and see what we can do for you.
