Today, Inspiration And ideas bring you on a journey through spacious rooms, wide-open areas, wooden panels, marble floorings and walls!

Straight lines characterize the evident contemporary aesthetic, both in the architecture and the furniture pieces. Here, window walls provide a 180 degrees view of the city of stars, a mesmerizing landscape over the Los Angeles skyline.

FOYER

The welcoming area to this project, the Foyer serves as the red carpet for the main event. Quite literally, where a fully upholstered velvet armchair makes a true statement for the Entryway. Also, leaving a fabulous first impression are the wall lamps where elegance is present in every crystal. The contemporary appeal is completed by combining the eyecatching of Angra Sideboard with the Glance Mirror, both from Boca do Lobo. The Hollywood fantasy of the inspiration turns into reality through these magnificent and lush elements!

GET THE LOOK:
ANGRA SIDEBOARD

Bold yet elegant black and gold sideboard. The sharp body is fully covered in black high gloss, and it gently lies in an unexpected curved golden base conceived from hammered polished brass, inspired by the cliffs of the historical city of Angra do Heroismo in Azores island, Portugal.

GLANCE MIRROR

The unique beauty of this round mirror comes from daring to risk and challenge conventional design through the finest craftsmanship.

LIVING ROOM

Sharing the area with generous open space for Living and Dining, this fantastically decorated Living Room is quite exuberant in its details. Metals were the focal point for this room, where the matching golden stripes on the walls and ceiling mix in unison with the lines of the furniture and lighting pieces.

GET THE LOOK:
LAPIAZ CENTER TABLE

A functional artwork conceived in three modules for unexpected combinations.

The contemporary vibe is noticeable not only by the decoration items but in the way the furniture was carefully curated for this area. Almost no organic shapes, just clean and straight lines. Standing out on its own, is the remarkable Imperfectio Sofa by Boca do Lobo, where its golden irregularities and flaws over the manual hammered brass expose the beauty of imperfection.

We can almost imagine a VIP dinner party, with the top names in the movie or music industry getting together around the fantastic dining table. Lapiaz Console brings the noir hues and Hera Suspension Lamp the golden finishes. Supremely decorated to the finest detail, don’t you think?

GET THE LOOK:
LAPIAZ CONSOLE

Finding beauty in the most unexpected places, this contemporary console is inspired by authentic karst formations created by surface dissolution, freezing or thawing of dolomite rocks.

HERA SUSPENSION LAMP

The lighting fixture is moulded to resemble the features and look of a golden branch. Handmade from cast brass, this chandelier has an organic shape and intricate contemporary details to create an adjustable arrangement in a harmonious ensemble.

MASTER BEDROOM

Taking much inspiration from the words “less is more”, this quiet and soothing Master Bedroom is the culmination of all the previous areas, but in a much cleaner and softer way. Wooden panels transform this otherwise ordinary and simple room into a masterful and glamorous division. The idyllic place for a well-deserved rest.

MASTER BATHROOM

Straight out of a scene from an academy award movie, this Master Bathroom exudes lust and opulence. Every detail in this ambience almost looks like the set from a blockbuster movie. The use of white marbles contrasting with the gold finishes produces such a powerful and deluxe feeling, that no one will be indifferent to.

When entering this impressive room, a piece immediately grabs your attention: The fabulous Diamond Bathtube from Boca do Lobo x Maison Valentina. The bathtub stands on its platform, resembling a unique piece in a museum, while the matching of the chandelier with the wall lamps, cohesively creates a deluxe aura.

Divided into two distinct areas, the Office area features an in-built book modern bookcase.

The reading area with Odette Sofa by Boca do Lobo is the ultimate display of luxury, sophistication, and functionality coming together as one with the office’s overall look, in a marvellous encounter of talented craftsmanship and innovative design.

Inspired by Swan Lake Op. 20, a ballet composed by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, Odette Modern Sofa tells the story of a princess turned into a swan by an evil sorcerer’s curse.

Milan Design Week has made its return. Marcel Wanders MILAN DESIGN WEEK 2022

After two years, the famous Milan Design Week has made its return. Marcel Wanders studio had the honour to introduce new, bold and unique designs in collaboration with FENDI CasaFLOSUp To You AnthologyFIAMNatuzziDevon&Devon and Sahrai.

Designs by the studio were also to be seen at MoooiQeeboo, and Objets Nomades exhibition by Louis Vuitton.

Marcel Wanders studio’s first collection for FENDI Casa subtly translates signature design elements found in the FENDI fashion archives into an elegant interior setting. By adapting a metaphysical approach in the creation of these pieces, inspiration was drawn from Italian heritage, embracing its rich art, culture and craftsmanship using locally sourced glass, stone and textiles. This extensive collection consists of two mirrors, dining table, arm and lounge chairs, bed, sofa, as well as a sub-collection of lamps, exquisitely crafted with Murano glass.

The studio also proudly presented its newest creation for FLOS, Skynest. By weaving filaments of light, this unique lamp seamlessly combines both elegance and innovation.

Delicate textile tubes, integrated with LED lights, reminiscent of thread, are woven throughout the design of the lamp; creating a unique element of surprise, which challenges the bulb lighting archetype. This beautifully innovative lamp is available in four different colourways and in various models including Pendant, Ceiling, Wall and Ceiling to Floor variants.

“We are poets, secretly engineering” – Marcel Wanders, Creative Director, Marcel Wanders studio on Skynest Marcel Wanders studio also launched two new handbags in collaboration with Up To You Anthology: New Classic and Bouquet. This innovative brand creates unique designer bags originated from the creative energy of the most visionary talents in Architecture, Design and Art worldwide, and handcrafted by the best Italian artisans.

The Cristaline dining table designed for FIAM exemplifies subtle beauty and grace by experimenting with the unique technology of melting and forming glass, to create an intricate surface pattern which illustrates geometry and nature through a complex floral pattern translated to an elegant dining table.

Marcel Wanders studio celebrated the launch of its fourth collaboration with Natuzzi. Presenting the Adam collection, with a focus represented by the Adam sofa, born from the desire to integrate sustainable materials with a timeless design inspired by Puglia. Part of the Adam collection are also a dining table and coffee tables made from wood, giving a natural and handcrafted appearance to complete a luxury interior setting.

“We designed this collection not only to reflect on the Puglia region’s natural elements and rich artisanal history, but to give the Natuzzi sofa a second life” – Gabriele Chiave, Creative Director, Marcel Wanders studio The Secret Gardens collection designed for Devon&Devon was created with a holistic and poetic creative approach.

 

Individual elements are all dressed in a seamlessly flowing design and, when placed together, create remarkably immersive settings that produce dreamlike spaces. The first collection in collaboration with the brand consists of wallpapers and small and large ceramic decor slabs (all available in an array of different shades and patterns), a vanity table, three mirrors and a range of ceramic accessories.

“Devon&Devon collection aims to seamlessly connect the words between surfaces and objects, creating a magical illusion of being in a dream made of flowers and nature”. – Gabriele Chiave, Creative Director, Marcel Wanders studio

The limited edition Kaleido of Life Collection for Sahrai, includes three finely handknotted rugs in natural silk and wool. In this collection, Marcel Wanders studio had the freedom to design on a large scale artwork to create impressively massive textile pieces. The rugs are inspired by the natural elements: air (Lush), water (Allure) and earth (Charm). Each of the three elements is depicted through a computerized graphic creativity, which plays with the sensuality of natural forms.

Regarded by many as an anomaly in the design world, Marcel Wanders studio has made its mission to “create an environment of love, live with passion and make our most exciting dreams come true.” The studio’s work excites, provokes, and polarises, but never fails to surprise for its ingenuity, daring and singular quest to uplift the human spirit, and entertain.

The studio’s chief concern is to bring the human touch back to design, ushering in a ‘new age of design’, in which designer, craftsperson and user are reunited. In this process, Marcel Wanders studio defies design dogma, preferring instead to focus on holistic solutions rather than the technocratic. In this universe, the coldness of industrialism is replaced instead by the poetry, fantasy and romance of different ages, vividly brought to life in the contemporary moment. www.marcelwanders.com

Minotti 2022 Hospitality Vision – Waterrock Boutique Hotel and Villas Video

Minotti’s hospitality vision is increasingly evolving in terms of its design and stylistic language, giving shape, as every year, to a new and exclusive virtual project. 2022 sees the arrival of “Waterrock Boutique Hotel and Villas”, a concept that interprets the current trends of contemporary living in the residential and high-end hospitality sectors.

The new project is ideally located in a natural Mediterranean setting, lying on a coastal hilly area and offering panoramic sea views; a fascinating location designed to act as a new backdrop and maximise the dialogue between indoor and outdoor spaces and between furnishing pieces and architecture, values at the heart of the 2022 Collection.

The architectural style and materials used are closely linked to the spirit of the new collection, in absolute harmony with the mood proposed last year, in the sophisticated contrast between exposed concrete and satin-finish steel, scratched wood, lacquers and mirrored surfaces.

The spaces on offer combine the elements of the history of architecture ranging from Rationalism to Mid-Century American taste through to Brutalism, to give shape to picturesque atmospheres, the same ones that distinguish the style and identity of the brand in different contexts.

The main building in the complex is the Waterrock Boutique Hotel, home to three different areas dedicated to conviviality: the Ishi Bar, the Mizu spa and the Oleander Grill restaurant, spaces whose names refer to the Orient and its elegant and minimal atmospheres.

The lounge of the boutique hotel is animated by two different seating systems, both designed by Rodolfo Dordoni: Twiggy, which stands out thanks to its rigorous geometric shapes and the sophisticated sartorial flavour of tone-on-tone stitching, and Goodman which, available in various configurations, has compact, comfortable volumes capable of adapting to the space and needs of the individual living there.

The indoor environments of the Ishi Bar, on the other hand, see the alternation of areas dedicated to conviviality with the Twiggy seating system with informal dining areas with the Sendai lounge little armchairs, combined with the Oliver lounge tables, recreating a harmonious, enveloping atmosphere that extends to open spaces, set up with the elegant simplicity of the Yoko Cord Outdoor designed by Inoda+Sveje seats and the Patio Teak modular seating system by GamFratesi.

Suspended between inside and outside, the relaxation area at the Mizu spa is furnished with pieces that reaffirm the flexibility and transversal nature of Minotti furnishings, such as the Horizonte indoor seating system by Marcio Kogan / studio mk27 and the Patio system accompanied by the Belt Cord Outdoor seats, perfect for creating an atmosphere of welcoming intimacy in the poolside area. In the adjacent one, dedicated to relaxation, the Florida seating system not only furnishes but also defines the paths of the open-air space.

Large panoramic windows and perforated concrete partitions allow a glimpse of the landscape and its light, while the alternation of steel and lacquered surfaces in bright colours bring to mind a reinterpretation of contemporary, helping to create dynamic contrasts that become architecture.

In the Oleander Grill, the atmosphere is consistent with the Minotti language, capable of enhancing the projects and the different stylistic and cultural identities of the designers behind the collection. In this environment, the dining areas, both indoor and outdoor, are punctuated by relaxation islands in a continuous back and forth, with no interruptions, between inside and outside, between areas for conversation, work and hospitality.

Inside, the Lars and Sendai sofas alternate with the Linha Fina tables and the Yoko dining little armchairs, while the outside with the Bellagio tables and the Belt Cord Outdoor armchairs is instead characterised by the bright colours of the outdoor fabrics, inspired by nature and perfectly in harmony with the open-air space that hosts them.

The Waterrock Boutique Hotel is flanked by three different types of villas immersed in the landscape – Lotus Tree, Maple Tree and Cherry Tree – buildings differing in size, but united by the ability to accommodate the pieces from the 2022 Collection to best express the mood and eclecticism of the furnishings in different contexts.

Innovative designs with natural stones at Casa Decor 2022

Marble, granite and quartzite are materials chosen by a good number of professionals at Casa Decor 2022 to give a unique touch to their spaces. Capable of transforming any room in the house into a personal and stylish environment, natural stones have become an essential material in the world of interior design, not only for covering floors and walls or making countertops, but also for shaping pieces with great personality and beauty.

This year, moreover, committed to the #CasaDecorSustainable campaign,  initiated at  Casa Decor 2020  to promote sustainability, the majority of participating companies are taking part in the Exhibition with a wide range of products produced with organic, renewable, recyclable and biodisposable raw materials, as well as as with recycled materials, without losing its decorative appeal. Here we present some of the designs that are setting trends.

MarbleSpain, warmth and beauty

A multitude of projects in collaboration with hundreds of architects, interior designers and decorators have made the members of Stone Capture by Marmolspain, infallible  “advisors in natural stone” . In this edition of Casa Decor, several participating professionals have found in the stones of this Spanish firm an excellent point of support to give that special touch in the decoration of their spaces.

The Casa Decor “New Eclipse” Auditorium , designed by Miriam Alía for the Technogym firm, was born with the idea of ​​projecting a different sensitivity and returning to essential and intrinsic needs: the energy of the sun and our well-being. To achieve that tranquility in the space, the designer has chosen a palette of warm tones among her materials, so the Miele Onyx from MarmolSpain used in the presentation table makes this a very special piece in keeping with the tones of the space.

For the firm Ron Matusalem on its 150th anniversary, Marta Sánchez Zornoza has created a sensory project that takes us to the Caribbean. In this space, the natural stone of MarmolSpain has become the main element, chosen by the decorator in shades of tan, green and white that evoke liquor, the sea and light. Using the Ungravity Sistem cutting technique , a system that allows thicknesses of between 6 and 12 mm to be obtained, reducing the weight of the stone for its application on walls and furniture, with the Purple Vulcano and Red Onyx models, the bench, tasting tables and the walls and ceiling. While, the Pakistan Green Onyxand the backlit White Onyx , shine on the bottle racks and the counter, respectively.

Cupa Stone, sustainable and ecological

For Cupa Stone, Casa Decor 2022 will be its fifth consecutive participation. As in previous editions, the materials of this expert company in natural stone is present with its products that, based on a noble and ecological material such as natural stone, have become benchmarks in the broad sector of interior design. This year, the brand shows unique and innovative materials from its catalog in two Exhibition Spaces.

The interior designers Meritxell Ribé and Josep Puigdoménech, creative directors at  The Room Studio,  have created a multipurpose space  that can perfectly be located in  a hotel hall,   in a  private home  or in a  public place. This multipurpose space creates a perfect balance between the modernity of its design and the elegance of the Cupa Stone natural stone. From the Calacatta Viola of the countertop, through the floor in Caliza Blanco Paloma, to the wall in Caliza Campaspero, natural stone helps to create a unique and aesthetically matchless space.

The Bang & Olufsen “Home Cinema” Space, designed by Cristina Remírez and Jerome Le Fouillé of Disak Studio , is inspired by the exclusivity of details, like the interior of a high-end car, where the fusion between noble materials , such as leather, wood and natural stone, among others, reflect quality and comfort”. The timeless, sophisticated and elegant style of the space can be seen in the countertop of the wine cellar, made of Iron Red granite in a spectacular shade of red with black and white veining.

Marble Sun, dreamlike textures

Fran Casinello , at the head of the Mandalay studio, has designed the Flamme Rouge suite, which is pure emotion. Without following any trend, they offer us an impressive, daring and timeless space, full of pure lines contrasted with very powerful organic touches. At the back of the space, a  daytime bathroom area has been created, in which a pair of Indra Onix washbasins have been placed, from the exclusive Infinity series in a Mirror finish,superimposed on the back, also in onyx. Its pattern of lights and shadows, the result of its translucent composition, make this material the cornerstone of the design. The pure and crystalline white of this backlit onyx, with an almost dreamlike texture, provides a touch of elegance and distinction to the space.

Cristina Espejo and Marta Goyanes have created a large bathroom designed as a space to spend many moments dedicated to our physical and emotional well-being. In the washbasin area, a piece of furniture designed for Strohm has been placed, in matte nickel-effect sheet metal and a stone countertop, by Mármoles Sol, which contrasts with the dark wood niches.

Levantina, large format natural stone

For more than a decade Levantina has been making its exclusive products available to the professionals who participate in Casa Decor to help them create unique, welcoming and impressive settings. Floors, walls, countertops, tables and decorative objects made with natural stone and the large-format Techlam porcelain tile.

In the COAATM space  The technical architect and the art of dissecting,  César Ávila Rodríguez , from CA Interiorismo, has created a calm bathroom with great visual power that allows one to see the artisanal and manual part of the various layers of the construction process. In this space,  Levantina has been responsible for covering the bathroom with an elegant floor and a wide skirting board in Staccato natural stone , one of Naturamia’s new proposals,  whose veins and patterns offer a prominent presence in the space.

The Bao Proyectos team has been in charge of creating the Oplontis kitchen for the firm Asko, an elegant and minimalist space, in which the central island stands out, for which the Syrah countertop , from the Naturamia collection , has been chosen. Gray, brown, ocher and reddish tones give life to the oxidized and industrial aesthetic characteristic of this quartzite that combines the typical colors of corten steel with the beauty of a rocky and natural landscape, merging with the space in perfect harmony.

« Living the future », the space created by  Simona Garufi for the Thermomix firm  , is a living room with a futuristic kitchen, which looks like the interior of a spaceship. To cover the floor of this futuristic environment, the interior designer has chosen the luminous and timeless  Crystallo, which recalls the delicate appearance of marble. It is a Techlam porcelain tile with a white surface traversed by imperfect and delicate curved lines, which transports the visitor to the surface of a planet.

Nasrid spaces, elegance and naturalness

This firm from Granada stands out for working with materials as was done in past centuries, according to ancient craft techniques, with which it manages to capture the beauty and showiness of materials from other times. It is also a form of ecological construction, with walls, floors and ceilings that breathe freely, in harmony with the environment, free of plastics and polluting chemical agents.

A marvelous Mediterranean limestone floor extends throughout the Technogym Space, designed by Miriam Alía. It is an asymmetrical exploded view , in perfect harmony with the marked deconstructivist trend that Miriam Alía has imagined in the design process of the Casa Decor 2002 Auditorium.

Description

This splendid and understated armour was sent to James I of England by Tokugawa Hidetada, third son of Tokugawa Ieyasu, who ruled as the second shōgun of the Tokugawa dynasty from 1605 to 1623. Some sources have suggested that the armour may once have been owned by Takeda Katsuyori (1546 – 82), a daimyō who had fought, and lost, against Tokugawa Ieyasu at the Battle of Tenmokuzan in 1582.

The armour is of the body-wrapped (dōmaru) type, which hinges around the body and fastens on the right. The ‘pumpkin-shaped’ helmet (akodanari kabuto) is signed by Iwai Yozaemon, one of the main armourers to the ruling Tokugawa family. Armours by Iwai Yozaemon in other European royal collections indicate that this was a popular diplomatic gift from the Tokugawa family, easily available from a regular and reliable source.

The helmet has a very wide, almost flat neck guard (shikoro), small turn-backs (fukikaeshi) and visor (mabizashi) decorated in gold lacquer with stylised clouds. The akodanari helmet has prominent vertical rivet lines and is lacquered black. A raised area at the back of the helmet bowl may have been designed to accommodate the chonmage, the samurai hairstyle which consisted of a shaved pate with the hair oiled and tied at the back of the head in a queue. This distinctive form of helmet was extremely popular during the Muromachi period (1392–1573) and the traditional style would have appealed to the Tokugawa family who were conservative in their tastes. The face-mask (sōmen) has a fearsome appearance, although the whiskers have possibly been trimmed over the years.

Much of the armour is laced in red and blue silk in a chequerboard pattern. The lamellae (kozane) are individual pieces of iron lacquered and laced together – a technique known as hon-kozane (‘true’ kozane), which creates a more flexible armour.

Continuing the conservative style, the shoulder guards (sode) are very large for an armour of this period. The solid iron upper areas of the cuirass () are decorated with gold lacquer dragons whose red lacquer tongues chase stylised clouds, possibly symbolising the Buddhist pearl of enlightenment, on a black lacquer ground. The rims (fukurin) and other metal fittings are of engraved and pierced shakudō and gilt-copper alloy. Interestingly, the small fittings to secure the cuirass have a discreet motif of a paulownia (kiri) leaf, an imperial symbol later adopted by the Tokugawa family. The sleeves (kote) are decorated in a similar fashion and have fine, though faded, silk with auspicious motifs and areas of iron mail. The greaves (suneate) are decorated with further stylised clouds in gold lacquer on black.

Provenance

Sent to James I by Shōgun Tokugawa Hidetada, 1613

This is one of the ‘two varnished armours’ given to Captain John Saris of the East India Company at Edo on 19 September 1613. Saris returned to Plymouth with the gifts in September 1614, but no account of their delivery to James I survives. The pair were almost certainly the first Japanese armours to arrive in Britain. By the mid-seventeenth century, they appear to have been separated, for only one was recorded at the Tower of London in 1660. The present armour was stored in a lacquer box in the Armoury at St James’s Palace, where it was inventoried in 1649–51 by the Commonwealth government for the posthumous sale of Charles I’s possessions. At that time, it was described as an ‘Indian Armor’ and purchased by Major Bas on 23 October 1651 for £10.

Following the Interregnum, the armour was returned to the Royal Collection, but confusion about both pieces’ provenance abounded. The armour at the Tower was for example described in 1662 as a present to Charles II ‘from the Emperor Mougul’, in India. As late as 1916, the present armour was confused with another in the Royal Armouries which had in fact been given to Philip II of Spain in 1585. At that time, it was in reality mounted on the wall of the Grand Vestibule at Windsor Castle, with other Japanese items from the Royal Collection.

Living rooms and living areas at Casa Decor 2022

04 / 13 / 2022

We continue walking through the spaces of Casa Decor 2022. On this occasion, we want to show you the nine projects, between lounges and living areas , that the participating professionals have devised in this edition. In all of them, you will be able to see how the new trends in decoration and interior design come with groundbreaking ideas, without fear of color or innovative textures, supported by companies and firms in the sector with a vision of the future. Also, we have been able to verify how technology merges without fanfare with craftsmanship, design and art to give free rein to social environments full of comfort and personality, which adapt perfectly to our daily world.They will surprise you!

Nometri Space

On the first floor of the Goya 89 building is Rosa Mexicano,  the space designed by Ana Mª Fernández,  from  Nometri. The interior designer has been inspired by Luis Barragán  to pay homage to color , so that it is possible to feel the energy and presence of the renowned Mexican engineer and architect.

Around this exaltation of color, we find the walls decorated with pictorial works by artists such as Brenda Fridman, Leticia Mezzetta and Débora Sánchez Viqueira, as well as design pieces in the form of sculptures such as the wall radiator, by Tubes Radiatori, and the figures of porcelain that mark the stairs. Different expressions that are added in a multidisciplinary space, which serves as a living room, dining room, art gallery and study.

The dining area is especially cozy, with Momocca furniture arranged on a Kuatro Carpets rug. Here, we also find outstanding contemporary artistic representations such as the small sculpture by Pablo Pérez Ramos, on the table, and the wall sculpture, by Domus NO.4. This space also highlights a studied technical and decorative lighting project that contributes to creating a welcoming effect.

Jaime Jurado Space

With a career spanning more than 20 years in the world of art and interior design, Jaime Jurado not only creates relaxed environments, but also designs and manufactures many of the pieces that bring his projects to life at Casa Decor. In collaboration with the designer  Mónica Bartolessis, this year Jaime offers us a contemporary space with a minimalist look , presided over by a large ceramic mural in which the Purple color stands out , which gives the space its name.

As a backdrop, walls covered with decorative panels by Panespol; floor and door jambs in Dekton by Cosentino, the same material used by the artist in the design of the table. Special mention deserves the balanced lighting of Megaman that makes his works stand out, as well as the elegance of the Aromas del Campo lamps that hang from the ceiling.

BTicino Space by Diego Rodríguez

At Casa Decor 2022, as in the  last edition , BTicino has had the prestigious interior designer Diego Rodríguez, at the head of his studio ‘Concepto DR’, to show the latest generation mechanisms of the Italian firm in a unique atmosphere, in where design and technology converge in a perfect symbiosis.

With his usual sophisticated and eclectic style , where everything is thought out in detail, the interior designer has created a Connected Home , with the most innovative series of Living Now mechanisms, as well as the new Classe 300 EOS with Netatmo video door entry system, with integrated Alexa. BTicino’s unique design and Netatmo’s latest technology together offer us a comfortable and energy efficient connected home.

In addition, in this bright room, the Dekton coatings on the floor, walls and ceiling stand out, as well as the natural oak wood, with which an original decorative structure has been created on the ceiling. The firm Bang & Olufsen has also collaborated with the Beovision Contour television.

Bang & Olufsen Space by Disak Studio

In this edition,  Bang & Olufsen has relied on Disak Studio to create the comfortable and elegant Home Cinema room where you can enjoy the Danish firm’s audiovisual products, including the Beovision Harmony television and the Beolab 28 column speakers.

As soon as you enter the space, before reaching the relaxation area, a piece of furniture with a marble top, by Cupa Stone,   serves as a breakfast and fast food area. An espresso machine from Modbar has been placed on it, and inside it has been installed a practical wine cellar from AEG, with bottles from   Dominio Fournier and Tanqueray No. TEN.

Among the pieces of furniture, a large sofa from the Atlanta collection, from the Alexandra Collection , stands out , a design with a three-position comfort system: sitting, relaxed and reclining. In addition, in the configuration of this space, Disak has used noble materials such as leather and wood, as well as warm textiles.

To cover the walls, Tarimatec wood has been used; Regarsa wallpaper ; and a textile lining by Misia Casamance.   They have also collaborated with Kaymanta, with a comfortable rug; Lutron, with home automation; and Orac Decor with 3D ceiling panels, as well as baseboards and cornices that  enrich the space.

Space Sinmas Studio

Match is the living room designed by Sigfrido Serra and Mateo Climent,which we can see on the third floor. A space inspired by its esteemedterreta, with a color range that refers to its traditions. A backlit decorative fireplace, made ofDektonwith blue veins, matching the base, stands out in the space. While the rear wall was covered with an elaborate ceramic mural, byNais. 

The interior designers’ proposal is an “all-in-one” capable of adapting to modern life: from reading a book in the shelter of the fireplace, to turning the living room into an improvised gym area with Technogym equipment. A subtle play of reflections from the mirrors goes perfectly with silver pieces, such as the Joquer sofa, the curtains, the foot of the side table and the wall-mounted towel rack, a new design by Tubes Radiatori.

Querencia Studio Space

Natural materials are the main protagonists of Recuerdo, the space designed by María Querencia and Maribel López, from Estudio Querencia. The interior designers say they have been inspired by their memories to design a space that allows them to remember those moments, through the experiences of those who live in it.

Organized in two environments: a living room, with a curved architectural staircase, and a kitchen area, which is entered through an opening covered with Neolith stone, the same material that is repeated on the countertop and the sink. The sensation of visual continuity has been achieved with the microcement in the same tone that covers the floor, walls and ceiling. A large fireplace, in front of the comfortable sofa, creates a serene, warm and welcoming atmosphere. Behind the sofa, a backlit bookcase houses several pictorial works by the artist Rocío Domínguez. The Jung company has also collaborated in the space , with electrical mechanisms.

Space Studio Mo

Rastros is the name of the room thatMarta MeliánandClaudia Ribagorda, membersofStudio Mo,have designed on the fourth floor: a space inspired by the Canary Islands, volcanoes and their rock formations, the sea and its waves, wind and erosion …

The interior designers have created a simple and warm atmosphere, in which the use of natural materials such as corrugated sintered stone panels by  Lapitec are of great importance; the clay paint, by Ecoclay, as well as the light wood flooring and the natural fibers in the upholstery of the armchairs and the curtains.

Other details that make reference to the volcanic formations of the Canary archipelago also stand out in this space, such as the black natural stone, which is evident in the Miapetra washbasin and in the set of auxiliary tables that complete the decoration of this space. The mechanisms and home automation of BTcino allow the control of all the facilities of the space, as well as the lighting.

Marta Labrador Space

“The reminiscences of past times where the traditional architecture of the French and Madrid attic act as a common thread to give way to an attic with a poetic language of chiaroscuro in a contemporary setting”, this is how the interior designer and plastic artist Marta Labrador explains the essence of his Rhetorical Lights project .

The combination of noble wood such as oak with natural textiles, which emphasize the fondness of a past, and the combination of textiles with different geometries, gives a contemporary character to this attic, which seeks  tranquility and well-being for those who occupy it.

In the design of the space, the lighting project stands out, with the electrical mechanisms by Font Barcelona, ​​as well as the lamps, by LZF Lamps, strategically placed on the ceiling and walls, which create a spectacular play of light and shadow. Among the pieces of furniture, the Ormo’s sofa stands out, with geometric shapes. Also worthy of special attention is the designer radiator by Tubes Radiatori; textiles and household items, from Scalpers Home ; and the occasional tables scattered throughout the space, from Sankore Africa .

Sara Torrijos Space

Architect by profession and interior designer by vocation, Sara Torrijos has started her career at Casa Decor with the Allure living room, a warm, relaxed and sophisticated atmosphere, which we can see on the fifth floor of Goya 89.

In this space, without a doubt, the excellent work carried out on the main wall stands out, built with clay bricks baked with ancient techniques, in its most sculptural and sensual version. The wall facing the brick wall was covered with mirrors to give the space greater depth. Sara has managed to recreate a serene and calm atmosphere through natural materials and organic forms, such as Ormo’s sofa, in bouclé wool, made to measure and adapted to the curved shapes of the wall.
