What happened to 2015? It's been a busy year for our design studio in Poole. Here are some of the highlights:
- A new addition to the Abitalia design team, Cathaysa Casañas Gonzalez is a qualified Construction Engineer. Her talent and professionalism strengthens our design team, as well as increasing our capability in handling larger interior architecture projects. Plans are underway for a number of exciting complete-house projects in the Poole and Bournemouth area.
- We became the first dealer in the world to display the new Heracleum Endless chandelier by Moooi. After seeing the Dutch masters exhibit their latest collection in Milan back in April, we thought the light was perfect for our studio. The Heralcuem collection designed by Bertjan Pot powered through Electrosandwich by Marcel Wanders has proved popular with clients. With 1m sections, the striking light is versatile, perfect for contemporary homes. Discover more here.
- Abitalia South Coast completed a large renovation project in north west London. The 5-bedroom luxury home required extensive renovation, with our designers managing the entire project. Features included bespoke furniture by the Italian brand Giellesse, luxury ensuite bathrooms by Karol and Gessi and local craftsman to create a truly contemporary home. We look forward to publishing the project photos in the new year.
- Closer to home, we're in the final stages of a contemporary house project in Christchurch, Dorset. The 5-bedroom luxury home on the riverbank of the Stour features contemporary furniture and fittings from Arredo3, Gaggenau, Giellesse and Novamobili, with flooring tiles and bathrooms by Casa Dolce Casa and Gessi. Completion is set for early spring, we'll post further project updates.
- Abitalia South Coast has become the latest dealer of the beautiful Bocci lighting (pictured). Hailing from Canada, the innovative and original lighting brand started with the Series 14 pendant. On the strength of this instant best seller, Bocci's portfolio of contemporary lighting has expanded to furniture and electrical sockets. Learn about Bocci here
- As mentioned Abitalia South Coast is a recognised dealer of Gessi taps and bathroom sanitary ware. A selection of high-quality design studios have been chosen to represent the Italian brand who are closer to a fashion house than a tap supplier. We'll be posting a feature article soon.
- A third brand to be introduced to our portfolio is Bosal - contemporary sofa beds. The Italian sofa bed company based in Florence, create high-quality contemporary sofa beds. We believe there is a distinct lack of contemporary sofa beds for the modern home. Abitalia South Coast becomes the first UK dealer for this luxury sofa manufacturer. Their full collection, which is Made in Italy is available to buy online from our website, which will be rolling out additional features of the next year.
