5 best Cattelan Italia dining tables

Skorpio Dining Table

The very name Skorpio dining table is provocative. It conjures a myriad of images from Zodiac signs to 70’s action films. It’s a flashy contemporary moniker that’s not afraid to grab the attention of the discerning customer; not unlike the table. This piece races past traditional design composition to set a new place for itself in your home decor. Like all creations by Cattelan Italia, it is visually defined by an effortless balance of quality composition and stylistic expectation. Giorgio Cattelan believes “furniture should be a way to experience time and life” and the Skorpio dining table epitomizes this ethos.

The base makes a stunningly bold statement. Available in 5 finishes including striking colors like orange fluo and graphite embossed lacquer, the angular power of this architectural support rises to cradle countless dining surface options. One of the most striking combinations is the more “organic” ferrous raw metal base paired with an 118″ x 47″ racetrack oval transparent glass top. Offset with matching Isabel dining chairs, this complete ensemble is the perfect setting for a gourmet dinner party or late-night cocktails that rage until dawn. Fourteen sizes, shapes and surface materials offered in a broad spectrum of opacities mean endless design solutions for your living space.

Eliot Keramik Table by Cattelan Italia is the quintessential example of this stylish design firm’s ability to create pieces of practical, lasting beauty. Featured prominently in Cattelan’s recent exhibition in Milan, this piece with its bold finishes is a stunning step forward in contemporary dining. Crafted in Marni ceramic, and offered in Ardesia, Alabastro or Calacatta colors, Giorgio Cattelan has combined a classic Italian setting surface with a sleek, modern, highly functional base. The ceramic in these textures is hardwearing while at the same time conveying a warmth and opulence. Proportionality is the secret to the flexibility of this piece. The elevation of the perfectly balanced, slim-line table surface is made possible by a painted steel base whose vault suggests modern architectural inspirations. The support underlying the Marni ceramic is virtually invisible giving the entire table a sense of effortless poise. The Eliot Keramik table is a timeless beauty of superb utility that sits as comfortably in the dining room as in the boardroom.

Its understated boldness and its magnetic beauty tell the story. Featuring a superbly well crafted solid carrara marble or white embossed MDF top, and a tasteful, slanted Cristal plant base, the Reef table demonstrates a spirited, yet chic flare worthy of any smart living or working space.

Giano Keramik Dining Table

The expression goes that “if it aint broke, don’t fix it,” but take a closer look at the designed fracture in the bold steel base of the Giano Keramik Dining Table made by Cattelan Italia. You’ll quickly find that cracked visage is not only aesthetically stunning, but a rare demonstration of chic design savvy matched with this table’s sophistication and functionality. The whole composition is a study in juxtaposition and balancing acts. The star of the first act is the ultra thin ceramic top, available in Marmi, Calacatta, or Alabastro ceramic, balanced like the stone in Pikes Peak’s Garden of the Gods on a powerful embossed lacquered steel base, available in white, black, or graphite. The next balancing act is the way the fashionable and utterly elegant design compliments the functional, solid, and indestructible materials. Perhaps this is why Cattelan Italia designers Manzoni and Tapinassi accented the base with that bolt of captivating design ingenuity. With a wink they might say ‘First, tell me it’s broke, then tell me who on earth would want to fix it?’

Plisset Dining Table

 

If you believe that you, your family and your guests deserve to enjoy both functional and uniquely stylish dining in your home, then take a close look at the Cattelan Italia Plisset Table. Like the rolling sands of a crisp wind-swept desert  set against a clear glass-blue sky, so is the sleek-ridged and utterly elegant marble base of the Plisset Table set against the clear (or extra clear) glass finish of the tabletop. One can almost image Lawrence of Arabia returning home and bringing with him a new sense of suave design, seen through his newly expanded minds eye. That film, whose image the Plisset table evokes, was deemed “aesthetically significant”, so it’s no wonder that the table will feel aesthetically significant to the  character of your dining room and home. Made by Cattelan Italia, a company that has been at the forefront of sharp contemporary craftsmanship since the 70s, the Plisset table, which comes in a variety of shapes and sizes, satisfies both a desire for classic grace and modern vitality that would be a glamours addition to any graceful home.

Amalong Extendable Dining Table by Bross Italia

Amalong dining table

 

Bross Amalong collection was created imagining extendable tables with essential profiles, which can solve with elegance and with a ‘fair share’ of trend the increasingly demanded theme of size variation. And it is from this opportunity of transformation that comes the name ‘Amalong’; of Lombard origin, it was chosen specifically for the connections between “LONG”, as the length is its distinguishing feature, and “SHE LOVES ” because the table leg leaves a curious heart shape footprint. The wooden structure of the product draws a light frame that hides the two extensions. Its uniform aesthetics – emphasized from a 45 ° cut of all the horizontal and vertical elements that trace a perfect match – persists even when the table is open, with the result of a doubled capacity.

Borghese: The Royal Treatment

The noble Borghese family of Italy is inseparably associated with the upper echelons of renaissance Roman society. This aristocratic agnomen appropriately suggests luxury, intricacy, and great worth. Like a great European family, the Borghese sofa evolves, adapts, and yet, in an essential way, remains exemplary.

Natuzzi Italia Borghese Sofa
Achieving this begins at birth. The foundation of the Borghese sofa is kiln dried sustainable hardwood, stock that is personally selected, and hand-crafted with a finish that marvels to the touch. With no less than eighteen finishes to select from, this dramatic range allows the piece to be at ease in the most prominent homes. But pedigree is not snobbery and elegance is not pretension. The hallmark of every Natuzzi creation is the fluent marriage of design and comfort.

Reclining into this superb settee is truly a princely encounter. Ergonomically precise cushions are replete with a layer of memory foam to surround and spoil you while webbing suspension in both seat and back support your every attitude. Adjust the manual or (optional) electric headrest to make this stately engagement complete. When you’re not indulging in the lush appointments of the Borghese design, don’t be surprised if the presence of its hand-tooled Italian leather upholstering and classic blanket stitched armrests become the talk of the party.

Natuzzi Italia Borghese Sofa

 

A deep seated divan, classically styled with heirloom quality craftsmanship, this sofa is a noble addition to any home. Consult with a staff designer at our Watertown center, select from a myriad of fabrics and finishes, create your own legacy.

Natuzzi Italia Cammeo Chair – Love at First Sit

Some pieces of furniture transcend the cliche’ descriptions of sleek advertising copy and pretentious furniture blogs… like this one even. Some pieces of furniture are what they are, quintessentially. Wait, now I’m sounding pretentious. What I mean to say is, they feel great. When you actually sit in the Natuzzi Italia Cammeo, luxuriate in it, get a moment to relax, you’ll likely utter the immortal words “this is my favorite chair.” At least I did.

 

Natuzzi Italia Cammeo Chair

 

Natuzzi Italia has mastered the chair. They’ve combined minimalist design with ergonomic dexterity. The result is a stand-alone furnishing which inspires the reaction a chair should engender; people love sitting in it. It’s incredibly comfortable. Whether you’re fully reclining, or perched on the side engrossed in debate, the Cammeo embraces your mood and supports position. This is the chair that the staff members always seem to gravitate to in the showroom. Like a great restaurant, it’s tough to get a seat.

Sure the curvilinear chrome base and unique leather hinge upholstering makes this piece pleasing to the eye, but once you sit in it you literally feel the genius of the design. The feather backrest is superb. The hand-tailored leather can only be described as creamy to the touch. Ok, that is pretentious. Seriously though, Natuzzi’s commitment to tanning their own leather goods and producing their own foam supports pays off in a huge way especially when what you’re looking for is an exceptionally comfortable place to indulge in your favorite film or cocktail.

 

Natuzzi Italia Cammeo Chair

 

In short, sitting is believing. There I said it. Truth is, the Cammeo is well worth the trip to our Watertown design center. Once you’ve run your fingers over the supple Italian leather covering and given into the impulse to kick back and stretch out on this one of a kind living room piece, I firmly believe you’ll agree; I’m understating it’s allure. A chance encounter, a soft embrace, this is love.

His style is remarkable, ever elegant, and constantly chic’. The ANTEPRIMA armchair rocks this look with as bold a tone as any of Bellini’s pieces. Unapologetically posh Italian leather upholstering supports you in comfort while quietly suggesting a night at the Oscars.
