Launched in 2013 Bentley Home collection has celebrated the distinctive lines and signature curves synonymous with Bentley and translates these into a new interior design language. The division has introduced newer styles for 2021 that feature cutting-edge new materials and unique finishes. The collection includes four new styles, including the Aldford Table, Ramsey Sofa, Loveseat, and the Styal Desk.
Defined by precious and cutting-edge materials and the desire to push craftsmanship to new levels, the 2021 Bentley Home Collection represents a new vision for the brand, aligned to the ambitions of Bentley Motors, to be the most sustainable luxury automotive brand in the world.
The world of innovations
The distinctive lines and signature curves showcase a close collaboration of Bentley Home with Bentley Design and furniture designer Carlo Colombo. Every style features a carefully chosen combination of unique materials and finishes that blend innovation, technology, and fine craft in a seamless flow. The Aldford Table, the Ramsey Sofa and Loveseat, and the Styal Desk elegantly sport a unique lacquered finish. Bentley Home has also introduced an exciting new fabric produced from marble powder among a choice of finishes. The new Degradé lacquering and new MARM MORE® marble powder fabric add a new dimension to the furniture aligning with the brand’s ethos and aesthetic.
Degradé lacquering is key to the overall aesthetic of the 2021 Bentley Home Collection and brings a sense of quintessential luxury that is both customizable and instantly recognizable. Degradé involves an incredibly intricate and complex process to achieve the high standards required by Bentley Home’s customers. Before creating the Degradé essence, a coat of varnish is hand-applied to protect the wood. A master artisan must then use an airbrush to apply the color by hand, with just the correct dose of lacquer, gradually drawing away from the wood to accentuate the color gradient and faithfully replicate every detail of the natural shading. After this long process, a round of polishing is required to give the product body, depth, and solidity. Four coats of varnish are then applied before a final round of polishing.
The elegant finish is brought to life in various options: Deep Ocean, Midnight Walnut, Black Kenya, Dark Shadow, Rust Degradé, Silver Degradé, and Bronze Degradé. Each of these options is characterized by subtle nuances, ranging from black to distinctive metallic colors that make each hand-painted product unique and unrepeatable. Each product within the new collection features the Degradé essence, and this technique can be applied to past Bentley Home designs too.
Marble is the ultimate material for sculpture and architecture, thanks to its unique character and charm. However, marble dust is a waste by-product that does more harm than good. Thus, MARM MORE®, however, is crucial as it is innovative in the world of furniture and décor. This ethical new fabric is developed and patented for Bentley Home to bring extraordinary furniture. The process utilizes genuine dust that is a by-product of marble production. The end-to-end sourcing and production occur in Italy, where master artisans are required to complete every step on the journey from powder to furniture wrap. Harnessing the natural power of marble, it restores value to its unique dust, transforming it into a textile that offers unmatched technical performance and aesthetic qualities. The precious marble powder fabric gracefully dresses the 2021 Bentley Home Collection, accentuating the elegant shapes of the furniture designs.
MARM MORE® is available in two different colors: light grey and natural green, each with a matte finish. This innovative covering can be chosen for every upholstered product within the new collection and applied to Bentley Home’s previous designs.
With work from home being the inescapable reality, Bentley Home elevates the concept of office space, giving shape to an iconic product, luxurious and refined throughout every detail. Styal is a desktop that has a succession of graceful curves run the length of the 3-meter wooden frame, covered in a choice of leather or veneer, with the sideboard elegantly positioned for balanced proportion. The desktop is punctuated with a gunmetal grey insert: a visual “incision” that accentuates its sculptural profile, governing its lines and leading the curves at either end. The desk is broken down into four elements, subdivided by a metal profile, covered in either leather or veneer. Slim and light, extreme from all perspectives, Styal dramatically reimagines the experience of working from home.
The structure and top can be customized in a choice of Warm Grey Fiddleback Sycamore, Smoked Liquidambar, or Burr Walnut root, with a glossy, brushed finish. Alternatively, a leather-covered top can be chosen, finished in wood with metallic finishing in gunmetal grey. Degradé lacquering effect is also brought in to finish the wood options.
Aldford presented an entirely new constructional challenge for the designers at the Luxury Living Group and the craftspeople at Bentley Home. The table is available in both design and art come together in the clean, sleek lines of the new Aldford Table, with both rectangular and circular versions. The legs taper up from the floor and meet under the top in a single form, accentuating the sense of lightness and suspension. The design is enhanced by the three layers that make up the tabletop: the underside is lacquered in glossy black, and a metal profile runs around the perimeter. There are three finishes for the legs: Burr Walnut, Smoked Liquid Ambar, or leather-covered, while the top is available in Calacatta or Valentine Grey marble, or glossy Burr Walnut, Smoked Liquid Amber or Warm Grey Fiddleback Sycamore. Additionally, every finish comes with Degradé lacquering.
If you like to create illusions within your home décor, the Ramsey range appears to defy gravity with its seat is suspended off the floor, and its tapered shell flows into armrests that reach upwards like outstretched wings. The Ramsey Loveseat is the first loveseat conceived by Bentley Home. The delicate lines, split only by a transparent panel between the seat and backrest, will suit the most contemporary homes, both alongside or independently from the Ramsey Sofa. A gunmetal grey insert frames the profile, reaching down below the seat, emphasizes the apparent defiance of gravity. Both the sofa and loveseat are available in a choice of coverings: Warm Grey Fiddleback Sycamore, Smoked Liquidambar, Burr Walnut root, or alternatively, covered in leather or the marble powder fabric along with Degradé lacquering to the wood finishes.
With graceful proportions, the 2021 Bentley Home Collection combines technology, sustainability with timeless luxury!
