Launched in 2013, the Bentley Home collection has celebrated the distinctive lines and signature curves that stand for Bentley and translates them into a new language for interior design. The division has introduced newer models 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 Styal Desk.
The 2021 is characterized by valuable and ultra-modern materials and the desire to take craftsmanship to a new level Bentley Home Collection represents a new vision for the brand, aligned with Bentley Motors’ ambitions to be the world’s most sustainable luxury automotive brand.
The world of innovations
The distinctive lines and signature curves show a close collaboration between Bentley Home and Bentley Design and Furniture designer Carlo Colombo. Each style features a carefully chosen combination of unique materials and finishes that combine innovation, technology and fine craftsmanship in a seamless flow. The Aldford Table, the Ramsey Sofa and Loveseat and the Styal Desk have elegantly a unique lacquered finish. Bentley Home has also unveiled an exciting new marble powder fabric among a selection of finishes. The new degradé lacquer and the new marble powder fabric MARM MORE® give the furniture a new dimension that corresponds to the ethos and aesthetics of the brand.
Degradé paintwork is the key to the overall aesthetics of 2021 Bentley Home Collection and brings a sense of the epitome of luxury that is both customizable and instantly recognizable. Degradé involves an incredibly complicated and complex process to achieve the high standards demanded by Bentley Home customers. Before the degradé essence is made, a layer of varnish is applied by hand to protect the wood. A master then has to use an airbrush to apply the paint by hand using just the right dose of varnish. He has to gradually move away from the wood in order to highlight the color gradient and to faithfully reproduce every detail of the natural shading. After this long process, a round of buffing is required to give the product body, depth and strength. Four coats of paint are then applied before a final round of polishing.
The elegant finish comes to life in different 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 that range from black to signature metallic colors, making each hand-painted product unique and unrepeatable. Every product in the new collection contains the essence of degradé. This technique can also be applied to previous Bentley Home designs.
Due to its unique character and charm, marble is the ultimate material for sculpture and architecture. However, marble dust is a waste by-product that does more harm than good. Hence, however, MARM MORE® is of vital importance as it is innovative in the world of furniture and decorations. This ethical new fabric was developed and patented for Bentley Home to bring exceptional furniture. The process uses real dust, which is a by-product of marble making. End-to-end sourcing and manufacturing takes place in Italy, where master craftsmen must complete every step of the way from powder to furniture packaging. It harnesses the natural power of marble and restores the value of its unique dust. He transforms it into a textile that offers unsurpassed technical performance and aesthetic qualities. The precious marble powder elegantly adorns the Bentley Home Collection 2021 and emphasizes the elegant shapes of the furniture designs.
MARM MORE® is available in two different colors: light gray and natural green, each with a matt finish. This innovative cover can be selected for any upholstery product within the new collection and applied to previous Bentley Home designs.
With work from home the inescapable reality, Bentley Home expands the concept of office space and forms an iconic product that is luxurious and refined to the smallest detail. Styal is a desktop with a series of graceful curves that run the length of the 3-meter wooden frame and is covered with leather or veneer. The sideboard is elegantly positioned to ensure a balanced relationship. The desktop is provided with a gray gunmetal insert: a visual “cut” that emphasizes its sculptural profile, regulates its lines and guides the curves at both ends. The desk is divided into four elements, which are divided by a metal profile covered with either leather or veneer. Slim and light, extreme from all perspectives, Styal dramatically re-imagines the experience of working from home.
The structure and the top can be customized in either Warm Gray Fiddleback Sycamore, Smoked Liquidambar or Burr Walnut Root with a glossy, brushed finish. Alternatively, a leather-covered top made of wood with a metallic finish in red-gray can be selected. The degradé varnish effect is also introduced to complete the wood options.
Aldford presented the designers with a completely new structural challenge the Luxury Living Group and the craftsmen at Bentley Home. Available in both design and art, the table blends in with the clean, sleek lines of the new Aldford table with rectangular and circular versions. The legs taper from the ground and meet in a single shape under the top, emphasizing the feeling of lightness and springiness. The design is enhanced by the three layers of the table top: the underside is painted glossy black and a metal profile runs around the perimeter. There are three finishes for the legs: Burr Walnut, Smoked Liquid Ambar or Leather Cover, while the top is available in Calacatta or Valentine Gray marble or glossy Burr Walnut, Smoked Liquid Amber or Warm Gray Fiddleback Sycamore. In addition, every finish is provided with a degradé paintwork.
If you want to create illusions in your home decor, the Ramsey range seems to defy gravity as its seat is suspended from the floor and its tapered shell flows into armrests that extend upward like outstretched wings. The Ramsey Loveseat is the first loveseat designed by Bentley Home. The delicate lines, only divided by a transparent panel between the seat and backrest, are suitable for the most modern homes, both next to and independently of the Ramsey sofa. A gray gunmetal insert frames the profile and extends under the seat. Both the sofa and the loveseat are available in different covers: Warm Gray Fiddleback Sycamore, Smoked Liquidambar, Burr Walnut Root or alternatively with leather or marble powder and Degradé paintwork for the wooden surfaces.
With graceful proportions, the 2021 Bentley Home Collection combines technology, sustainability with timeless luxury!
