Bottega Veneta’s deliberately played-down approach to luxury fashion translates beautifully into its furnishings, an extension of its business that began a decade ago when creative director Tomas Maier commissioned a bespoke bench he needed for the brand’s boutique he was decorating.
Since then, year after year, Maier has demonstrated with his furniture creations that simplicity is the key to truly great design. His pared-down furnishings don't just please the eye, but also perform in terms of functionality and quality.
"When furniture is designed simply, the craftsmanship and materials must be impeccable because there is nothing to hide behind," says the man who is known for his resolutely minimal aesthetic.
This year, as expected, Maier doesn't veer far from the brand's trademark palette and textures. The new home collection features refined leathers in neutrals, set off with marble and bronze details that altogether encapsulate the fashion house's elegant brand of chic.
The star pieces from this latest range are undoubtedly the set of bronze tables (pictured above), a collaboration with Italian designer Osanna Visconti di Modrone. Sporting the signature Intrecciato weave motif seen on Bottega Veneta’s iconic fashion accessories, these handmade and thus individually unique creations must be the desire of the label’s devotees.
