Jesse: A century of family-owned success

At Belvisi, we get joy out of helping our customers realise their dreams of a better living space for themselves and their families. This extends from start to finish, whether we’re chatting about our interior design service over a coffee with prospective customers or putting the finishing touches to their home. We love what we do.

We’re also careful to work with suppliers who share this commitment to outstanding design and to whom the ethos of a family business remains important. That’s why we love Jesse and are proud to be one of the UK’s foremost suppliers of this historic, prestigious brand.

Jesse Bridge table

Jesse furniture stands the test of time

Founded in the 1920s as a humble but ambitious carpentry shop producing furniture for schools, by the ‘50s they’d established themselves as one of Italy’s foremost producers of home furniture. By the 1970s they were brightening up homes across Europe with a focus on care, elegance and modernity.

Today, we’re proud to work alongside Jesse; we share their ideas when it comes to the importance of quality and family. Modern Italian furniture from Jesse is built to stand up to the rigours of everyday family life, like this dining table. It combines a striking angular design, so rich in artistry, with a clear focus on using robust materials and time-honoured craftsmanship.

If you need more evidence of what Belvisi’s range of furniture from Jesse can bring to your dining room, look at the Moon extending dining table. Gorgeous furniture should enrich your life, however you choose to live it, and this table offers options to fit into any space or expand to easily accommodate extra guests. Bringing these exquisite creations into your home is just the start of the adventure.

Fine Italian furniture for all of your home

Of course, Jesse is all about expansion, and while their roots lie in crafting furniture for communal spaces, they’ve also turned their attention elsewhere in the home. In contemporary bedroom furniture like this hinged wardrobe you can see the same philosophy. It’s the same meticulous focus on classic design mixed with the best of modern materials and construction.

By the same token, we can look at designs like the Skin sideboard or the Shade night stand and see this unpretentious approach to crafting great furniture for those who live life. Running through all our favourite Jesse models is a love of bold straight lines and strong matching colours to give any room a sense of expanse and motion.

We love this marriage of elegance and function which runs through Jesse’s work. We’re a family company ourselves so we recognise when designers keep in mind the everyday reality of what their creations need to stand up to and still produce furniture which takes your breath away at a glance.

Children’s bedroom furniture: Options for life

When you’re decorating your children’s bedroom, you want to give them it all. To them, you’re a superhero so being able to give them their very own secret hideout is just part of the magic. Unfortunately, parents often face a reality check when it comes to working with the available space.

Many people we speak to struggle to combine the fun, colourful environment their little ones want with the practical limitations of what is usually a smaller than average room. Above all else, they want to know that the furniture they choose is safe and will stand the test of time.

Kid’s bedroom solutions with real Italian furniture

In our experience, it pays to take a step back and look at the big picture. What are you really trying to achieve with your kid’s bedroom furniture? What are the obstacles that stand in your way?

Battistella Nidi 11

Is it a matter of space? If so, think outside the box. In cases like that, the key lies in combining elements to maximise the floor space they need for playing and open up as much of the room as possible.

A room set up like this foldaway bedroom solution from Battistella puts their bed, desk, shelves and wardrobe all within arm’s reach of one another without compromising on comfort, style or durability. The imaginative folding bed is the star of this show, tying it all together as a dynamic centrepiece.

Maybe you’re contending with a room that’s an odd shape? In cases like that, it’s all about working with the room, not against it, to find new ways to include everything you need.

One solution might be this versatile composition. Even the tightest corners can be made to work wonders for you with raised storage, open shelves and a comfy bed tucked underneath.

For longer, narrower rooms, consider something like this combo with the Twiddy Plus drop-down bed. With a sturdy desk, bed and extensive storage aligned across one wall, floor space is maximised for playtime and adding the finishing touches to give them the space they’ll really love.

Long-lasting Italian children’s furniture for your home

What makes our selection of contemporary Italian bedroom furniture really stand out is the level of flexibility it affords your little ones. What’s great for your child now might not be just what they want or need in three years. Invest in an environment which they can mould around their changing tastes and it’ll pay dividends.

Again, Belvisi and Battistella have you covered. With this bedroom furniture combo your children have all the fun and comfort that comes with the very best of modern Italian furniture, but with the ability to mix and match multiple bed configurations for sleepovers or just that little bit more room to spread out!

Alternatively, this composition is fully mobile on durable rails and castors, perfect for when they want to mix things up a bit. As they get older and the games get more sophisticated, they can roll out the beds to give themselves more sleeping space, or just as easily free up more room for larger projects.

The best of kid’s bedroom furniture from Belvisi

We understand that every children’s bedroom we help create is as unique as the child who loves it. That’s why we take the time to get to know each project we’re involved with in intimate detail to recommend the best ways to tackle each individual problem.

Choosing a Modern Italian Kitchen: 5 Important Considerations

The kitchen is, without doubt, the most used room in the house: we have put together a few simple rules that we think you should take in consideration when you are choosing the kitchen that’s right for you, your family, your taste and your lifestyle.

1. Don’t rush. Consider different styles and layouts to find the one that enhances your home and reflects your way of life!

2.The kitchen is one of the most important rooms in the house. It must be a safe place for you and your family, as well as needing to last a long time. It is a place where you will spend a large part of your day so remember this when planning it!

3.Beautiful but impossible kitchens? Do not choose a kitchen that looks fantastic, but is not practical. We all would love a Hollywood style kitchen with big islands or peninsulas where we can cook Christmas dinner for the whole family, but to use the space we have available in the best way we must put ergonomics and practical considerations above all else. Modern Italian Kitchen fits best when it comes to practical kitchens. Opt for a practical and convenient layout, do not create cramped spaces.

4.Very important Don’t underestimate small spaces. There are many solutions for making the best use of the space available. Kitchens for small spaces should be both attractive and practical. Don’t forget you can choose between a large range of modular kitchens that offer equipment and accessories inside the kitchen units and that will help you optimise the space and hide away the mess.

5.Don’t let other people make the decisions. Listen to their advice, but remember you are in charge. Your kitchen is for you and your family. What would you like? What are you looking to achieve in your new kitchen? Take on board all the advice but remember that the advantage of planning a modular kitchen is precisely the fact that it is made to measure. It is a dress made to fit your requirements and you can choose from thousands of options. So be bold, think of what you like and choose on the basis of what the kitchen means to you and your family in your everyday life.

Relax, socialise and have fun.

Now days the living room as well as the kitchen are the most social of the rooms in the home, is the room where you and your family get together at the end of a busy day a room where you can relax, talk, play, is a place where you also entertain your friends and there for they are the two rooms where is nice to show nice piece of furniture. The living/dining room and the kitchen lately are becoming one big open space and is important to remember that this two rooms need to be practical and functional family space that need to meets a range of different needs of the family.

We think that the sofa is probably one of the most important piece of the living room, that is why we think that is important to choose the right sofa that will please all the members of the family. This week we have picked the Altopiano designed by Vibieffe a luxury Italian sofa that come in all shapes and sizes also available in a choice of luxury Italia leather, fabrics and can also be upholstered in your own fabric if you prefer.

Furnishing small kitchens and poorly lit areas

Space optimisation in the kitchen is very important and the modular kitchens offer various solutions for not sacrificing ergonomics and practical considerations.

When furnishing small spaces, the role of the kitchen designer can be very valuable: depending on how the kitchen will be used, he or she can help you to choose from a variety of space-saving solutions.

If you like to have guests round for dinner , but your home will not allow you to choose a table big enough to seat all your friends, you could for example opt for a fold-away table, which when required will provide all the extra places you need. To get a better idea view our dining tables collection or call us for and advice 01223 327463.

Cattelan-Convivium

Cattelan-Convivium is a clever table that will help you maximise the space.

If you haven’t got the classic storage closet in which to keep all your cleaning items, you could instead choose a kitchen with storage cabinets, to keep everything neat, tidy and close to hand.

When planning your kitchen, try to make sure there is enough space to move about easily: working in tight surroundings can be dangerous, as well as not being much fun.

If you dream of a kitchen with a peninsula or with a centre island, but the space is limited, there are a few ideas that allow the right compromise to be found, such as providing a snack counter for short breaks, where you can read emails or organise a little aperitif, separating the kitchen from the lounge in a practical way .

Practicality and aesthetics can also be provided by pull out storage units.Until a short while ago in kitchen design there were always unused spaces, even if just a few centimetres, that were covered by fillers and panels. Today these can be exploited with the pull out storage units that even in just 15 cm give us a useful compartment for storing jars and tins, or for keeping brooms and cleaning materials.

Corners too, usually hard to access can be made functional and practical by the use of corner units with pull out shelving ,that make even the most inconvenient areas much more accessible.

 If you have areas without much light. We have the solution!

For small and dark rooms the best colour is without doubt white, because it illuminates and reflects the light. Some may fear it is rather bland, but in actual fact it is anything but an uninspiring colour and offers various customisation. options. Choices can be made between warm or cold colours, woods with different grains, matt or gloss lacquered smooth surfaces, and many more solutions including matching with the worktop.

Take a look at our modular kitchens to find the space-saving solution that’s right for you! Come and visit our showroom where we will be happy to choose your dream kitchen. Our Cambridge showroom is open every day and the Stosa London Showroom is open for appointment only. Call us to book your appointment. We are looking forward to seeing you soon for a lovely Italian Espresso! Ciao
