Ipanema Keramik Table


“Tall and tan and lovely,” as the song goes, “The girl from Ipanema goes walking and when she passes, each one she passes goes ‘ah”. This playfully elegant table by Cattelan Italia brings out the “ah” response from first glance as well. This smooth-topped ceramic table with a base that forms a shapely shadow. Combine this tough little chassis with a groovy array of finishes and tops in beautifully veined Calcutta Marni ceramic or smokey Ardesia Marni ceramic, two of four superbly polished, lavishly marbled surface options. The base steps up the style in black, graphite, or titanium, a slender legging offering solid support. The Ipanema Keramik table is a sophisticated sassy addition to any occasion in your dining or living space.


Klirr Table


How can a dining room feel both elegantly futuristic and yet classically timeless? This is the question the designer Emanuele Zenere of Cattelan Italia posed when creating the KLIRR Dining table.

Available in a variety of sizes and glass tabletop shapes, the simple elegance of the table mingles seamlessly with any home decor from Art Deco to Eclectic and all things in between. Whatever home it finds itself in, The Klirr table can’t help but inspire praise and awe. Like standing on the edge of a sea leading to a brave new world and feeling the familiar and refreshing ocean mist in your face, the Klirr table will cleanse and fortify, making you and your guests feel intrepidly at home.



Nido Keramik Bistrot


When Edith Piaf first sang of seeing life through rose colored glasses, we all became French for a time, imagining eating croissants along the Sienne, gliding up the Champs Elysee, sipping coffee in a petit cafe by the Eiffel tower, and perhaps even falling in love. With such reveries, who would not want to take a piece of that world into their daily reality? That is precisely the goal achieved with Catalan Italia’s NIDO KERAMIK BISTROT table. The quaint and idiosyncratic Parisan cafe can come to life inside your home with breathtaking modern elegance. Available in three striking ceramic top finishes as well as three equally impressive frame finishes (and three possible sizes to fit your needs,) your dining or living space can truly become a thing of beauty with a touch of fantasy. With the NIDO KERAMIK BISTROT table in your home, each day will be La Vie En Rose.



Premier Drive Table


Powerfully built with a sleek design that inspires confidence and sophistication, the Cattelan Italia Premier Drive Table is a dauntless and discerning choice for any dining room. The name itself tells you all you need to know about the table: “Premier”- for number one, top of the line, peerless, preeminent, and unsurpassed. The Cadillac. The Rolls Royce. “Drive”- for movement, propelling forward, instinct, and extension. And “Catalan Italia”- for one of the leading companies in innovative, well built, groundbreaking, and expertly designed furniture in the wold. With bases available in titanium, black, or graphite embossed steel as well as top finishes in extra-clear white, extra-clear frosted white, extra-clear graphite, or extra-clear frosted graphite, the options for a fashion-smart motif that perfectly fits your home abound. Besides that the Premier Drive is versatile in that it is an extendable table, it is also available in three unique sizes to fit your space and lifestyle. Launched in 2017, there is nothing so fresh and so streamlined and so ready to make your dining room polished to perfection.

The Volo Collection by Natuzzi Italia: Luxury Takes Flight

The history of the modern recliner begins, of all places, in the pilots lounge of an American aircraft carrier, where officers reclined in leather chairs that tilted back, designed to put them at ease before a taking off into combat. The designer later adapted these seats to carry men to the moon. The concept was a simple one: a durable but soft, finely stitched leather seat, with padding that recovered its shape, capable of reclining into a position that a person would feel completely comfortable in no matter how stressful the mission. Natuzzi has taken the recliner, expanded on it in a variety of innovative ways, refined the luxuriousness as only a marquise Italian furniture company can, and endowed the creation with components that make this beautiful settee soar. In Italian Volo literally means ‘flight’, and easing back using the effortless controls of this imaginative sofa puts you in touch with an unparalleled feeling of sumptuousness and elevation.



If relaxing on a beautifully hand-crafted Italian leather cloud of comfort, feet up in front of a terrific movie is your idea of an evening well spent, then Volo is the perfect home entertainment seating solution. Exquisitely grained hand worked leather, available in every imaginable shade or texture, is just the beginning of the options offered by Natuzzi Italia in this collection. There are literally over one hundred and fifty coverings including deep-piled fabrics, robust houndstooth and herringbone tweeds, and brilliantly toned synthetics. Choose the patterned retro feel of ‘Teal Brown Asterisco’ or the super-charged ‘Tirreno Dreamfibre,’ all highlighted with the handcrafted stitching (also available in contrasting colors) characteristic of Natuzzi’s heritage and timeless attention to detail. The support, and the ability of this piece to retain its beauty and shape for years to come, are courtesy of high-tech, pressure sensitive memory foam layered into every cushion in this piece. It’s soft and pliant, recovering completing after every use.



One of the space-age mechanics built in to this superb sofa is the ingenious ‘Soft Touch’ control panel in the armrest. Glide your finger along the surface of the sensor, which is perfectly positioned in easy reach and you control the rise of the backrest, leg rest, and pitch of the seat. Invisible to the naked eye, this seamless set of instruments are a perfect balance of elegant form and efficient function. Again, like a finely tuned aircraft, design and practical experience work in harmony with state-of-the-art components to create a classic. The final addition to the already splendid array of mechanical sorcery imbedded in the Volo, is the “zero wall system.” Most work-a-day reclining sofas require lots of clearance space behind the back to allow for the backrest to open. Not so the Volo. With precision on take-off, the headrest structure lifts and retracts, tucking into itself to create a an aerodynamic, zero clearance surface that can fit neatly against your wall so no space is wasted.



A smooth, distinctive solution created by consummate design professionals, this richly appointed, classic living room essential is available in a space saving extended two seater or as a sectional rich with configuration possibilities. Take a test flight on the Volo by Natuzzi Italia at our Watertown Design Center. Volo: artistry and ingenuity synchronized for soaring comfort.
