Contemporary and metropolitan spirit, eclectic style and a welcoming, intimate and reassuring atmosphere for the new Gianfranco Ferré Home environments, which could be admired at the Salone del Mobile.Milan 2022.
The sartorial cut of the furnishings, the Milanese spirit and vintage undertones converge with the nuanced chromatic palette of greys and browns. Warm and dark colours which, together with soft lighting and a mellow atmosphere, evoke the legendary New York temples of jazz. The pervasive presence of wood confers even greater warmth to the collection, whilst brushed bronze details in the finish illuminate it with perfectly placed accents.
In the living room, the most simultaneously intimate and open welcoming space in the house, the York sofa plays a starring role, perfect for incorporating within a luxurious and up-to-date context. Its design is evocative of the business-oriented environments of the great American cities: the simplicity imparted by the linearity of the piece is balanced by the refinement of the bespoke upholstery that emphasises the link with the world of men’s fashion. The decorative side inserts on the armrest are an nod to the tailored suits of business men and their briefcases. The contrast between colours and materials – nubuck in a neutral and delicate shade of grey for the upholstery with details picked out in dark brown leather – gives this transversal and sophisticated aesthetic ensemble a very decisive character. The Lowery tables enrich the interior design with their essential lines and modern appeal. Featuring a circular double top and a light and dynamic structure, they are the ideal accessories for a functional and welcoming space.
The dining area evolves around Rockefeller, an elegant dining table with a sculptural design characterised by the contrast between solidity and lightness, stability and dynamism and light and dark shades. The compactness provided by the depth of the legs is counterbalanced by the delicacy and elegance of the material they are made in: travertine marble. The top is embellished with a diamond-shaped decoration in a smokey grey finish that contrasts with the light colour of the legs and is rounded to lend an overall sense of softness. The Madison armchair is also a feature of the dining area, of vintage inspiration and designed with undercurrents of a revisited Brazilian style. The soft and enveloping shape and the structural straps that guarantee the ergonomics of the seat make the armchair a comfortable and relaxing piece of furniture that fits perfectly into any type of setting.
As welcoming as an embrace and exceptionally sophisticated, owing to the detail of a dual volume headboard with differing heights, the Malcolm bed is designed to make the sleeping area the most inviting spot in the house. Proportionally perfect, it stands out for its linear design united with aesthetic and functional details designed to increase the sense of comfort and relaxation, primarily via the use of leather to cover the headboard and bed frame. The neutral and delicate shades of the bed align with the mood of the collection.
