Dainelli Studio redesigns the interior of a prestigious flat with garden in the heart of Milan (eng)
In one of the city’s most elegant residential areas, Dainelli Studio redesigns the house of two entrepreneurs in a classic-contemporary key.
The 250sqm flat on Via Tamburini in Milan occupies the ground floor of a 1980s building. Surrounded by a quiet 600 square metres garden, the space was redesigned by Dainelli Studio to meet the needs of the couple and their children, creating four bedrooms, a spacious entrance hall, hallways and corridors with large wall wardrobes and a large living room connected to the dining room.
The style mixes aristocratic with Haussmannian details, such as the large wood panelling, mirrors and Versaille oak parquet, with extremely contemporary elements, such as the resin floor in the kitchen, the tropical wallpaper and the architectural lighting.
The choice of furnishings and objects confirms this harmonious ambivalence, mixing elegant custom elements with design icons, family heirlooms and Faces self-productions by Dainelli Studio: marble sculptures, ceramic sculptures and paintings.
The entrance is characterised by furnishings designed by the designers: the bookcase boiserie, the black-stained ash wood cabinet and the brass partition separating the entrance from the living area. The furnishings include a black leather armchair by Vitra and two custom lamps with built-in brass light fittings and Dedar Tiger Mountain fabric, a jacquard velvet inspired by Tibet.
The living room features a Flexform fabric sofa, combined with Capitol armchairs by Cassina – in black-stained ash and moss green aniline leather – and completed by modern antique tables and Flos lamps.
Separated by a few steps with elegant brass details, but easily accessible from the living area, the dining room opens onto the large custom table with a black-stained ash base and White Beauty marble top. Chairs, bar cabinet and lamp in glass and metal are all by Gallotti&Radice.
In the bedrooms, the mix of classic details and contemporary choices returns. The bedside tables in gunmetal and Georgette marble and the bed with a quilted headboard, both by Conte, interface with the custom-designed piece of furniture in black-stained ash, the console table by Gallotti&Radice and the wallpaper by Taplab.
Kitchen and bathroom embrace a decidedly contemporary philosophy. The kitchen is by Poliform and the bathroom by Boffi, with iconic furnishings by Kartell and Vitra.
Accessible from both the living area and the bedrooms, the garden is an oasis of peace in the heart of the city. The outdoor furniture, all Kettal, has been combined with a Cattelan Italia dining table.
