THE WILD & WONDERFUL DESIGNS OF FRATELLI BOFFI

Finding a fabulous new design source is as exciting as eating some wonderful new dish at a great restaurant for me.  I immediately beg the recipe from the chef so that I can enjoy the eating experience again and ultimately share it with friends and family at a dinner party in my house.  Obviously my creative genes spill over into many different areas!

Such it was when I accidentally discovered the Italian furniture company Fratelli Boffi while I was writing my last ProductsPicks post for Houzz.com (see post).  I was searching for some fabulous looking gold furniture for my post and unearthed the Fratelli Boffi web site.  Not only did it have a stunning looking gold chest of drawers but it also had so many other terrific pieces of furniture that I just had to write about them.

I think the furniture is simply fabulous…full of style and wit and unusual twists and turns on classical furniture pieces.  I mean, really, isn’t the sofa above beyond clever? Think of seeing it a hotel lobby and how impressed you would be with the decor. And, you will have to admit that putting a big pink lacquer cutout in a classic French commode is definitely out there on the design-edge

The company was started by Carlo Boffi in 1928,  a highly skilled wood carver who reproduced traditional chairs in the style of Louis XV & Louis XVI.  Today the company strives to keep this level of excellence in all of the products it produces but mixes it with a modern flair.  They are renown not only for their craftsmanship and excellent finishes but for the timelessness of their designs.

Fratelli Boffi’s collaboration with the designer Aldo Cibic and his line, “Antologia”   proved to be a pivotal point in the development of the companies move into the future.  This particular collection has become the signature furniture  line for  both the residential and commercial divisions, creating furniture that is recognized world wide.

Although Fratelli Boffi has a huge reputation for completing numerous  installations in hotels and restaurants and a significant association with the fashion industry and it’s showcases,  I still  think many of their designs would  be just perfect for residential design projects.

They have a huge selection of different collections which makes them a go-to for unusual and unique pieces for your home.  I highly suggest surfing their site if you are interested in giving your interiors that special touch of  modern chic-ness that will make it outstanding.
