A new furniture collection, borne of a collaboration between luxury British carmaker Aston Martin and makers of luxury interiors and accessories Formitalia, was previewed at Milan Design Week.
The partnership between the two luxury brands set out to create a unique, contemporary, yet timeless collection of furniture, reflecting the traditions and craftsmanship of Aston Martin sports cars.
The full collection, which will be available for sale in September, is flawlessly handcrafted in Italy using authentic, luxurious materials. Dark textured timbers are combined with the warm glow of brushed brass, indulgent velvets and leathers, and the open textured weaves of handwoven Italian linens. Each piece is finished with a new choice of elegant colours.
A highlight of the collection is a signature sofa created from a blend of fabric, leather, wood and metal, and comprising a magazine rack in soft leather or a service table in elegant Canaletto walnut. Another highlight of the collection is a luxury sofa with a shell dressed in incredible cuoio leather from the Tuscan hills and a choice of any fabric or soft leather from the range to upholster the firm seat.
The collection also features a selection of exquisite coffee tables, crafted from exotic Sahara Noir or Breccia Medicea marble and smoked or clear glass.
In the bedroom, the new collection features a bed which demonstrates the sheer beauty of simple, elegant lines. Also dressed in fine cuoio leather, the bed features a futon-style mattress draped in cashmere and is topped with two cashmere-upholstered cushions. Also for the bedroom is a charming choice of sideboards where Canaletto walnut and leather have been brought together to produce two classically beautiful pieces of furniture.
Completing the collection are two striking armchairs, with seats upholstered in soft leather or fabric atop beautifully structured metal or walnut legs.
Gianni Overi, CEO of Formitalia, said: “The beautiful designs are artistic but remain timeless and true to the design philosophies of Aston Martin’s beautiful sports cars. Our discerning customers will enjoy using furniture that features Aston Martin design language in their homes.”
