The entire luxury apartment serves as a backdrop to Rapin’s ever-growing collection of objects and furniture.

Here, there are no rules, with everything from Fornasetti to a 17th-century Turkish chest, by way of lamps and other pieces from the 1940s.

For the past years, design firm Wilkinson Beven has developed an expertise in luxury interior design with the design of beautiful residential interiors from private residencies in London, to Caribbean beach villas and luxury ski chalets in Courchevel. True to meeting the client’s requirements and taste, a new interior design project has emerged in southern England, in the charming village of Costwolds.
For this luxury interior design, every detail was in full check, from the structural space planning, furniture layouts, and lighting design to the selection of materials balanced to create a modern home that is unique to their owners. The client’s luxurious rural home is set on the brow of a hill and enjoys stunning views over the surrounding countryside.

The main living space is divided by a contemporary log-burning fireplace, the new wing also features a bar and library and is complemented by a basement extension with a wine cellar and a luxurious home cinema. The living room completely invites the homeowners to sit back and relax during a cold day outside. The imposing armchairs and side table next to the contemporary fireplace are the perfect pairings. Sturdy and attractive, the Stone side table by Boca do Lobo is a timeless modern design piece for any given set of a luxury home. Cut in a classic shaped pattern, yet with a contemporary design twist, it establishes itself as a quintessential piece in the Soho collection by the design brand.
This luxury interior design is filled with light, not only because of its high windows that imposingly meet the ceiling, but also due to the white walls that happily embrace the entire soft interior design ideas present in every single home division. It’s clear that the clients aimed for a simpler palette and had a preference for a monochromatic range of the hue brown.
The Hollywood inspired cinema room has state-of-the-art wall-recessed speakers and audio-visual kit, whilst bespoke, upholstered wall panels add subtle opulence as well as benefitting the acoustics of the space.
Stone and timber floors reference the natural materials outside and a sense of carefully considered craftsmanship is emphasized by pieces such as the oak bentwood pendant and the hand-stitched leather handrail leading down to the wine cellar. For this luxury interior design, Wilkinson Beven really tried to bring the outside to the inside, and it shows. Merging nature and modern design, the final result of the entire project is a true harmonious statement.

Throughout his entire minimalist love when it comes to interior design, Vincenzo De Cotiis designer another masterpiece right in the heart of sunny Tuscany. This entire interior design project features a few of his modern design creations and Inspiration and Ideas is about to lead you on a journey inside of a luxury home and you will never want to leave!
With his minimalist flair, Vincenzo de Cotiis has added a contemplative contemporary design layer to the lived-in walls of an 18th-century Tuscan villa. With his signature merging of modernity and the monastic not only on the modern interior design ideas but on the art furniture as well, the Italian architect and artist Vincenzo de Cotiis has refreshed the early-18th century villa, transforming it from decaying grandeur to a softly luminous 21st-century vision of raw romance.
“I had been in lockdown for two months. I was isolating between my home and my studio in Milan, and was always with my wife, Claudia Rose. Luckily, creativity can’t be stopped by the lockdown and I was focused more than ever on my new projects and ideas” says Vincenzo De Cotiis.
Part of the appeal of the sweeping four-story escape lies in its solid and reassuring embrace of natural materials. De Cotiis has intuitively balanced their old-as-time allure with handcrafted contemporary pieces that look boldly futuristic but are informed by Italian design traditions. The designer maintains true to his taste but always following the current interior design trends and that is how his big luxury design creations come to life and do the wonders of those that step inside of them.
“I’m constantly thinking about how to improve interiors. I believe that good design helps us live better. It’s a reflection of who we are. Going forward, it will be a challenging time for the field of design and I can imagine that a highly selective market will leave only unique creators who have something valuable to say standing” says Vincenzo De Cotiis.

Often, the best secrets to contemporary design and exquisite art, lie in the tales of history. A common saying dictates that you shouldn’t try to fix something that is not broken and that most certainly applies to the usage of craftsmanship techniques. Throughout generations, various methods were passed on, leaving a legacy of extraordinary commitment to design and art. Searching for the same feeling of historic art pieces but always with a touch of modern design, came the Lumière Lighting Collection.
The mystic of late XIX century boulevards is brought home by the masterpiece Lumière lighting collection. A confluence of Victorian street lights and architectural tectonic form, the Lumiere exemplifies the contemporary dualities of art and functionality.
Through the manual fitting of hammered polished brass sheet bursts antique fixtures with intricate edges hand-sculpted by a casting mold. Born from the rich tradition of iron forging and skilled goldsmiths, the Lumière lighting collection is a combination of soulful pieces with classic distinction for outstanding private residences to the greatest contract settings. A ground-breaking collectible design for present-day luxe and timeless statement.
Metalwork and more precisely metal casting, are the processes behind the Lumière lighting collection. Metal casting is one of the craftsmanship techniques most used by master artisans. It allows them to cast metals into a chosen shape and size. The versatility and durability of this art made it maintain its relevance until nowadays. Now we can see it often being applied to the best contemporary design.
Working metal to create breathtaking art pieces is a never-ending trend. Nowadays, however, few are the ones that still focus on handcraft metalwork, achieving a level of quality and authenticity that only master artisans can provide. That is the thought process applied by Boca do Lobo’s designers, that partnered with skilled and experienced minds of Portuguese master artisans, can bring to life even the wildest of dreams.
The designer’s ideas become sketches, drawings, and models that are later executed, by the metalworkers, therefore the art pieces they produce are genuine and unique. This profession requires intense training and much experience. It usually takes more than ten years until a degree of intellectual and technical ability is reached.
The truth is that serial products will always exist and satisfy the general demand, but we can keep the living flame of the finest craftsmanship burning for the ones that look for something more special, as the Lumière lighting collection.
El estudio creativo valenciano Masquespacio presenta Mas Creations, su nuevo sello personal. Con esta marca comparten su personal visión del mundo a través de objetos, espacios y muebles. Una mezcla de fantasía y realidad. Sus dos primeras criaturas son dos piezas escultóricas con un aire entre retro y futurista: la mecedora Too Much y el macetero Ball Pot. Las presentan acompañadas de un proyecto digital en 3D que recrea una casa surrealista y onírica, inspirada en interiores y artistas icónicos de los 70
La pareja formada por Ana Hernández y Christophe Penasse, ha diseñado, desde hace diez años, infinidad de proyectos, espacios y objetos pero, según explican necesitaban dar un salto y avanzar. Y así ha surgido Mas Creations. Hace dos años ya hicieron un primer intento con el lanzamiento del taburete Dr. Workshop. A continuación tenían pensado hacer el lanzamiento internacional durante el Salone del Mobile y la Milan Design Week pero llegó la pandemia. “Aprovechamos los meses de encierro en casa para hacer del proyecto de Mas Creations nuestra prioridad y empezamos a desarrollar más colecciones que lanzaremos poco a poco en los próximos meses.” Explica Ana Hernández.
“Desde hace años sentíamos la necesidad de evolucionar hacia un enfoque más artístico, distanciándonos de los proyectos más comerciales con una nueva marca paralela a lo que hacemos en Masquespacio. Por eso después de trabajar más de 10 años en todo tipo de proyectos con nuestro estudio creativo Masquespacio, hemos decidido fundar Mas Creations con el fin de poder experimentar más allá de lo que estábamos haciendo y así buscar nuevos retos, creando nuevas cosas bonitas que hacen vivirte nuevas experiencias a través de una colección de productos y proyectos que cuentan una historia que simplemente tiene como fin hacerte más alegre el día.“
Ana Hernández. Directora Creativa de Mas Creations
La pieza estrella del lanzamiento es la mecedora Too Much,que contrasta colores, materiales y formas. La han acompañado con Ball Pot, un florero grande que busca generar una emoción con su combinación de madera y mármol amarillo. El jarrón Ball Pot con su impactante silueta funciona también como objeto sin flores
Además, el confinamiento les ha dado mucho de sí. Además de múltiples directos para firmas de nacionales y de Latinoamérica, le ha hecho replantearse el lanzamiento de su sello. Y ante la imposibilidad de organizar un lanzamiento presencial decidieron crear un universo propio que lo acompañase y ahí entran en juego el arte digital y la fotografía. Así surge una campaña diseñada en 3D, inspirada en interiores icónicos y artistas de los años 70, que han dado forma a una “casa imaginaria” en la que habitan las piezas de Mas Creations.
En definitiva Mas Creations es un claro reflejo del estilo gráfico con contrastes de materiales y colores de Masquespacio y su proceso de fusionar pasado y futuro. Por ultimo Mas Creations tiene la idea de trabajar con artesanos locales para producir cada uno de los nuevos diseños. Así ampliarán la nueva colección con piezas que darán a conocer muy pronto con lanzamientos quincenales.
