Modern Italian wardrobe

Modern Italian wardrobes: Secure and sumptuous storage

The right wardrobe with the perfect design has the potential to do so much for a room. Here at Belvisi we’re always giving advice to customers to help them select the perfect wardrobe, an issue which is often far more of a stumbling block than people first think. The first step should always be to step back and consider where the wardrobe will fit in with the rest of the design in any given room.

Define your space

From an aesthetic perspective, what role will it perform? A plainer wardrobe with discrete handles and flush doors like this modern hinged wardrobe directs attention to other items of furniture, perfect for smaller rooms with more defined furniture that you may wish to take centre stage. On the other hand, larger rooms with more space to fill might cry out for something like this distinctive TV wardrobe to share the plentiful limelight and contribute more fully to the look and feel you’re trying to create.

Once the homework has been done and you know what you’re aiming for, it’s time to fit that vision into the reality of the situation. What sort of space are you working with? Narrower wall space with a lot of depth lends itself well to a set of durable hinged doors, whereas if you’re installing a wardrobe into a thinner room, sliding or coplanar doors are going to serve you well.

Picking the right contemporary wardrobe

Many of the wardrobes in our new range from modern Italian furniture gurus, Mobilform, are available in any of these three variations, so a choice made on practical grounds doesn’t necessarily mean compromising on how you want your dream room to turn out.

Did you notice that the above examples haven’t been confined to the bedroom? Modern wardrobe design has come so far from the static, dust-topped days of yore that wardrobes now appear as storage solutions all over. Of course they’re still a cornerstone of contemporary bedroom furniture, but sliding fitted wardrobes are also a popular choice in the hallway. Used like this, they provide an unobtrusive place for coats, bags and other clutter, invaluable here where space is at its tightest.

This principle has even burst out of the home and found its way into the workplace. Offices and similar commercial spaces are nowadays creating a cleaner, more expansive look by making use of cutting-edge wardrobe designs like the Grove hinged model or this contemporary covered design. Replacing jumbled, irregular-looking coat stands and hooks with a neat rail concealed in an understated wardrobe adds that extra air of professionalism to any office space.

Customisation is key

With so many possible uses, you’ll be pleased to know that modern wardrobe design leaves room for so much creative control when it comes to customising individual pieces. Examples like this modern sliding design come with a shelf and two hanging rails as standard, but options like internal LED lights and shoe storage allow you to personalise your wardrobe down to the finest detail.

In the modern home, it’s more important than ever to get exactly what you want. One size doesn’t fit all, so a bespoke approach to the perfect furniture is essential. So much of our furniture is selected for its modular flexibility for just this reason. Whether you’re fond of longer garments and need a rail a bit higher from the floor, or you’re a strapping, broad-shouldered type who needs their wardrobe that little bit wider. Belvisi has your needs covered.

We extend this flexibility to all the furniture we offer. Some customers come to us looking for individual bespoke pieces, while others are interested in taking advantage of our full interior design service. Either way, we’re proud to offer a level of service which takes the time to understand each individual customer and work with them to realise their visions for a gorgeous new home.

Mood is the modern kitchen that designs open space, combining the kitchen andliving room with sophisticated continuity and discreet style. The brand new veneered elm finish, in the two natural and ash colours, introduces a new kitchen style marked by elegance which is both aesthetically pleasing and functional at the same time, with large spaces that can be personalised and that open the kitchen area up to the rest of the house. The characteristic feature of the base and wall unit doors is their flush-mounting handle; a minimal, linear detail that doesn’t go unnoticed. The Tetris modern, open elements with sliding doors with a smooth, lacquered finish (in five colours) complete the compositions with a touch of practical elegance.

Modular wall units: New life for your living room

We look at our new range of contemporary modular wall units, which offer inventive storage spaces and breathe new life into your living room.

With the living room, the clue is in the name. This is a place both to live and to showcase your life. Here you’ll be entertaining guests, relaxing with family and otherwise enjoying yourself in an atmosphere which should put you at your ease and reflect the uniqueness of your personality.

So when selecting the right modern furniture to round things off, you need pieces which are contemporary, look great and which tell your story. New for 2015, Belvisi’s modular collection from beloved Italian furniture suppliers, Novamobili, is a popular choice when it comes to mixing the cutting edge of contemporary Italian design philosophy with flexibility and creative control.

The key here is versatility. In Novamobili’s own words, this collection celebrates “the home seen as both a starting point and a destination.” It’s a means of creating a cohesive, deeply personal look and feel for your home by combining elegant, durable pieces into a portrait of your dream living room.

Take a look at this composition. The bold, striking straight lines bisect each shelf, separating this discrete, chic storage from the elegantly simplistic base unit. With sliding doors finished in tangeri to accompany the rich, creamy bianco and rovere bianco shelving, this is a definitive design statement. What’s incredible is that you can create custom designs just as impressive yourself.

These compositions are like palettes, snapshots of inspiration from which you can mix and match individual pieces to create a living room which shows off not just the best of modern Italian furniture design but which is also unmistakably yours.

It’s not just about how you divide pieces; design innovations like the Novamobili Wave let you draw a smooth connecting line between individual elements to link them into a cohesive whole. Like paint strokes, these curved elements help you create artistic compositions like this, suggesting a work of modern art, as beautiful as it practical.

Mix and match your dream living space

The modular nature of this collection makes matching with your existing furniture a breeze. The first time you sit back on the sofa of your dreams and you know you simply must have it, you want to be assured that there’s a way to make your whole room look right in context. The answer is simple with this versatile, flexible design. Whatever you decide the flagship for your living space will be, this is a sure way of creating a great-looking, natural accompaniment.

With this degree of versatility at your disposal, there’s no need to limit things to the living room. Wall units are a popular means of framing any room in your home as an alternative to bulkier, more static furniture pieces. Imagine a subtle, understated composition like this providing shelf space and an underline to the wall-mounted TV in your bedroom. Using modular wall units opens up your floor space and opens things up to give rooms a lighter, more open feel.
