When talking about designer furniture we’re not referring to a specific style but instead about furniture which has been specifically created by a designer with a unique aesthetic and purpose is mind and which, most importantly, is not mass-produced.
Each piece of designer furniture, fixture, or accessory for that matter is usually unique and, of course, that comes with a price tag that’s higher than usual. There’s some amazing iconic pieces that you might already be familiar with and a lot of others yet to be discovered.
Here are a few of our own favorite designer furniture and accessory creations.
Silenzio by Antonio Lupi
You might be surprised to see a washbasin first on our list of designer furniture pieces. Although it is technically a fixture, the Silenzio washbasin by Antonio Lupi has an extraordinary designer that goes beyond being just practical or functional.
It’s a real piece of art with a sculptural and magnificent aesthetic. It’s designed with a very organic shape in order to be able to perfectly blend into the wall, appearing as if it’s coming out of it, as if the wall itself is morphing.
Bettelux Shape by Tesseraux + Partner
Here’s two more gorgeous elements that could make any bathroom look magnificent: the Bettelux Shape tub and mirrored wardrobe. With an organic shape and delicate outer edges, the tub adds a sense of elegance and flair to the space around it and becomes a subtle accent piece without overpowering the surroundings. It seamlessly flows into a powder-coated steel frame which makes it look weightless.
The stylish wardrobe with the same name exhibits similar design characteristics, featuring the same sturdy yet delicate metal frame and lightweight appearance. The full-length mirror beautifully conceals the contents while the open sides keep everything easily accessible and within reach, giving a glimpse inside without fully exposing the contents.
