Bentley won’t take good design sitting down

BY GERRY MILES

I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised by this from Bentley. They’ve put their name on skis before. They’ve ventured out into the large, luxury SUV world and now the home.

Copying er, inspired by the interior of their Bentley cars, the Home furniture collection boasts traditional and modern design in subtle ways that blend function with performance (do you sense a trend here?) that also understates quality.

The new Richmond pieces can be swathed in leather or a fine veneer of burr walnut. Simply put, whatever you could order on four wheels is likely available here. 

The color palette is composed of varying neutral tones of ivory and taupe matched with shades of beige and cream.

The new collection consists of:

Richmond chair

Madeley & Kendal

Sherbourne & Kingsbridge

Tall and short leather-coated cabinets with veneered fronts; these are also available in smooth or quilted leather. Tone-on-tone interiors with external coatings and shelves of crystal represent the quality of Bentley and Club House Italia, part of the Luxury Living Group.

Canterbury Bed

Canterbury Bed

The bed is set off by an imposing (read: oversized) headboard, embracing coated structure available in leather or fabric. The shapes are soft and inviting in a formal yet informal way.

An innovative duvet cover, Fibra di Legno®, is a high-quality fabric made from wood pulp that gives the yarn softness and smoothness, adding to the luxurious feel of this piece.

 

I’m sure that if you have to ask, you can not afford these.
