Check out the finest wares from three of the most iconic luxury car brands at this year’s Salone del Mobile Milano that took place this weekend
The Milan Furniture Fair has just closed the doors to its most successful edition yet, but there was more than the usual suspects in attendance - ultra-luxury car brands are increasingly entering the interior space with design concepts of their own, so here is our pick of the most impressive furniture seen in Milan this past weekend from three of the world’s most renowned luxury automobile manufacturers.
1. Aston Martin
Legendary British marque Aston Martin, normally associated with luxury and speed as well as the company’s latest 12-million dirham Valkyrie hybrid hypercar, showed up in Milan with its new V210 modular sofa with magazine rack, made of fabric and leather with stunning Canaletto walnut backrests featuring a natural open pore wood grain - careful placement will be required because you’ll really want to show off the back of the sofa as well as the front.
Bentley has been synonymous with the world’s most luxurious cars since 1919, and the company’s Bentley Home division has grown to a full 2023 collection that includes three debuts in Milan - the first is the Aldford table available in with a marble or wood top; the second is a desk that can be optionally specified with a leather top; and the third piece is the astonishing Ridley chair in wood veneered Warm Grey Fiddleback Sycamore, Smoked Liquidambar or Burr Walnut briar-root.
The storied Italian supercar brand from Sant’Agata Bolognese is known for lightweight construction and screaming V12 engines, and the interior arm of the brand Tonino Lamborghini Casa is just as shouty about its aesthetic ideals - this GT Supercarbon desk is made of exotic carbon fibre just like Lamborghini supercars, and it even features a safe box and a fridge that you open with a hidden mechanism unlocked with a push of the iconic Lamborghini ‘Raging Bull’ badge.
