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 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?

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.

Kids bedroom design

Children’s bedroom design: The colours of childhood

Decorating a child’s bedroom presents challenges not found elsewhere. For starters, considering the colours you’ll be using is a sticking point for a lot of budding interior designers. Like any challenges there are shortcuts, but when it comes to the cutting edge of modern design philosophy, falling back on the old blue for a boy/pink for a girl option can be merely a short-term solution.

Think outside the box with your child’s bedroom

Opening up the colour palette brings in a new world of sophistication. By making the same considered choices in the kids’ room as you do in every other room in your home, you’re creating a stimulating space, a bedroom where the little ones can live, learn and grow.

Your choice of colour for the kid’s bedroom can affect how big it looks. Lighter colours open up the space and help you make better use of the light. Combined with the right multifunction, space-saving furniture you can give even the cosiest rooms a new, expansive feel. Browsing through our range of space-saving modern bunk beds and bed-cum-desk combos is sure to give you some great ideas.

Think about the effect colour has on the mood of a room. By making bold choices and decorating in bright reds and vibrant green you can create an exciting, stimulating atmosphere for playtime. Deep purples and rich creams suggest a calmer, more nurturing environment suitable for study and a great night’s sleep. By finding the right balance you’ll create the space which is right for your kids where they’ll love being.

Shape up the perfect kid’s bedroom furniture

By making the most of the interplay between shape and colour, you can give your child a space which is more than just a kid’s room, it’s somewhere that’s beautifully crafted and uniquely theirs. With modern bespoke children’s furniture you can customise the tiniest details to ensure the room reflects the best of the child’s personality. This is reflected everywhere in our design philosophy, from chunky, curved bedframes down to choices of sturdy rounded handles for our range of children’s wardrobes.

Imagine the fun they could have in a bright, lively room furnished with innovative children’s furniture like the Goccia bunk bed from Battistella. If you’re going for something a little more understated, there’s also the Fiore bunk bed, another Battistella creation, with a more straightforward construction which still makes great use of whimsical shapes and fun cut-outs to add a sense of imagination to a practical, durable design.

Need contemporary bedroom furniture for teens?

As time marches on, you’ll begin to see why taking that little bit of extra time to choose the right colours for your kid’s room was such a wise idea. Boys quickly grow out of baby blue, even quicker than girls grow out of flamingo pink. A more nuanced, style-conscious palette means you can replace individual pieces of furniture to keep pace with your child’s development without the hassle of a full redecoration.

For example, as the rounded, organic shapes which characterise furniture for young children give way to the defined, angular designs typical of the furniture teens love, a bedroom decorated in bright, fresh cream could easily play host to this gorgeous modern teenager bedroom set. Space will no doubt also be an issue so we’re sure to keep up with beds like this modern single bed with lifting base. It’s chic, it’s versatile and it provides discreet storage for all the essentials of teenage life.

A timeless, classic colour scheme for the kids room also makes accessorising much easier. This fun bubble design mirror from Calligaris would look right at home among a collection of contemporary bedroom furniture for teenagers. What about a quality rug to match the theme of the room and direct attention to the rest of the stylish décor? Spending an extra hour or so now on deciding on the right colouring can save you time and effort later on when it comes to adapting the space.

Here at Belvisi we love getting to know the families we work with to create their perfect homes. We’re a family business ourselves so we know the value you place on feeling content in every room. If this blog has inspired you to think outside the box when it comes to the colours you’re considering for the kid’s bedroom, talk to us about it.

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.
