New shapes, new materials and finishes: there are many new products in the Bontempi Casa Living Collection 2021 arriving among tables, chairs and furnishing accessories, the result of our constant desire for renewal. Today we begin to reveal a few…

The Delta table

Often at the center of the scene, the tables play a leading role in the daily management of domestic spaces and represent an important focus in the production of Bontempi Casa. They are also protagonists among the novelties of 2021, with new designs and different iconic models ready to be renewed in shapes, materials and finishes. Among the new entries, today we reveal the Delta model, refined and versatile.

Its structure is characterized by geometric lines that take up the theme of the table with crossed legs, reinterpreting it with lightness and with precious details that underline its strong personality. In lacquered steel, it can be declined with different finishes ranging from antique brass to gold through black and white, matt or glossy. The Delta table then takes on different faces and can be inserted in any context depending on whether you choose the rectangular or barrel-shaped top in wood, crystal, SuperMarble or SuperCeramic: many possible variations as proof of its great versatility.

New finishes: pink gold and Sand and Savoy Gray SuperCeramic

Research on materials has always been one of the cornerstones of Bontempi Casa business, that over the years has developed innovative solutions to ensure optimal performance of its design. Among these is SuperCeramic, elevating the characteristics of traditional ceramic by combining maximum strength and inalterability with minimum thickness to create durable and functional tables.

Not only performance but also aesthetics: SuperCeramic satisfies the eye with a delicate texture that is also appreciated to the touch, and this year it is renewed with two new finishes to be applied to different tables in the Bontempi Casa catalog. Sabbia is a discreet and refined variant, while Savoia Gray recreates the effect of natural stone thanks to bush hammering, a particular process that gives the material an absolutely authentic look.

Obtained thanks to numerous experiments with color mixes, it is precious and delicate at the same time to be able to elegantly fit into any context. Its brightness enhances the shapes and discreetly emphasizes the details of the structures.

The Dada and Shape chairs

Indispensable accessories for every room in the house, the seats also contribute to defining the style of furniture and the way of living the spaces proper to each one: they can add touches of inspiration and color in a minimalist environment, or bring back rigor around a table from the richer design… Among the new proposals for the year that has just begun, we reveal two with a decidedly different character.

Dada chair Bontempi Casa

The Ray coffee table and the Spark lamp

In a modern home, the style of furniture can be recognized (also) from the accessories, such as coffee tables and lighting. The coffee table is a discreet protagonist of the living area, capable of clearly expressing the attitude of those who choose it, just like the lamps: and here are two other novelties for 2021.

AAA new home decor ideas wanted? New ideas are also frequently circulating in interior design, destined either to last for a few years or to become furniture classics. From the layout of the spaces to the choice of furniture, here are some tips for orienting yourself and obtaining an elegant and modern environment, with well-organized and welcoming spaces.

Organizing the layout of the spaces is the first step to take, before any other choice of furniture. How to do it? It is important to define your idea of ​​home, or how you intend to experience the home environment and what your habits are. Do you want distinct functional spaces or a more fluid and open environment, do you want to have a wide space for cooking or do you need to create an area to devote to work or your hobbies? Once these objectives have been established, it will be easier to decide how to arrange the furniture in the space, perhaps using the seats to create a conversation area or a well-structured bookcase to divide the space inside the living area.

Once the distribution of spaces has been defined, it will be possible to sift through the different ideas for home furnishing and choose the furniture by evaluating the proportions in the best possible way so that the result is harmonious and pleasant to see and experience. A key element from this point of view is the table, because it generally plays a central role in the environment in which it is positioned, whether it is the living room, the kitchen or the dining area. With a table that is too large, together with its chairs, you risk obstructing the passage, while a table that is too small could seem a marginal element in the room. And how to choose between rectangular, square or round tables? The rectangular table is the one that allows you to make better use of the space, with a minimum footprint compared to the number of seats, while the square one furnishes the largest spaces well. The round table, in addition to being space-saving, gives a more airy and light look to the furniture.

For those who love design and always keep up to date on the hottest trends, it can be difficult to choose among the many ideas for the home that you see every day. To define a modern and elegant home, however, it is important to obtain a consistent style in all environments. At least in the first phase, therefore, it is good to make clear style choices to be repeated from room to room. Even the use of colors and materials has its importance in maintaining visual consistency: a good method can be to compose a color palette with a neutral base to which you can add touches of color that reflect your taste, choosing three shades to repeat in different environments. One color will be dominant, the others in the background, for a more pleasant final effect to see.

Small home decor ideas

Furnishing a small house does not mean giving up the elegance of interior design, nor does it mean having to embrace a minimalist lifestyle. Few objects chosen with care will certainly enhance the environment, and with some care you will have every comfort. Among the furnishing ideas for small houses, the first to propose is to make the most of the walls with suspended shelves and wall units to give the room a larger and more airy look. Secondly, space-saving and multitasking furniture such as extendable tables and consoles or storage poufs are the best allies of small homes. Finally, it is possible to recover space by reasoning in height, or by creating a mezzanine if there is the possibility of doing so, or more simply by favoring storage units that are slender upwards.

Large home decor ideas

To furnish the largest sizes, the main need will be to organize the spaces to eliminate the sense of emptiness, while avoiding overloading the rooms. In these cases, the main rule is to balance the full and empty spaces: the spaces are better read thanks to the contrast between full and empty, which must be well balanced. Among the furnishing ideas for large houses, the division of the rooms can be entrusted to the equipped walls, proposed by the architects to make the environment fluid but well marked. The living area, then, can be enhanced by a large table to be placed at the center of the scene, perhaps setting up a scenographic wall with paintings or mirrors in the background.

When furnishing the living area, there is a question that sooner or later all will have to ask themselves: is it better to buy a rectangular or a square table? It is impossible to find the right answer for everyone, since much depends on the taste and style of furniture but also on the space available. Whether for the living room, the kitchen or the dining area, the table is an element that tends to play a central role in the room. This is why it is important to choose a design that follows your taste, but also a harmonious shape with respect to the surrounding environment.

Rectangular table

Let’s start with a practical matter: the rectangular table is the one that allows you to make better use of the space. Compared to a model with a square top, it allows to have a minimum footprint compared to the number of seats it guarantees. So choose it without delay if you love having guests for dinner. In addition, it is easy to move it next to a wall when you need to create more space for passage, for example to organize a cocktail party or a standing reception.

Imperial rectangular table

The Imperial rectangular table conquers with its original lacquered steel bracelet structure, composed of two elements that can also be chosen in slightly different shades or in contrasting colors to underline the geometric design and create a unique and personal mix. The top can be in wood, to give a touch of warmth to the furniture, or in glass to emphasize the modernity of the design. Imperial is also available in the extendable rectangular table version.

Square table

The square table has a larger footprint, and is mainly suitable for large environments where it can be placed in a central position. The proportions are important: if it is too small, it may appear as a marginal element in the room, on the contrary if it is too large it risks obstructing the passage around it. The square tables have the advantage of favoring conviviality and conversation among all the diners, without exception.

Versus square table
Versus square table structure in lacquered aluminum to match the top, solid wood legs and SuperMarble top. Also available rectangular. Kelly chairs with solid wood structure, padded and upholstered monocoque.

The Versus square table represents a choice in the name of decidedly modern elegance. The clean and essential design is enhanced by the quality of materials: solid oak, walnut or elm wood combined with a SuperMarble top with its typical veins or in crystal. SuperMarble is an innovative material, born from the combination of glass and porcelain stoneware, with a print that perfectly reproduces the natural luster and streaks of the stone. Durable and versatile, it is resistant to temperatures, shocks, chemical and organic substances.

So what about rectangular or square table?

After evaluating the characteristics of the two different types, it will be easier to identify the most suitable table to furnish your environment. Not before one last, but not least, advice: since we are talking about one of the most important pieces of furniture in the living area or kitchen, the table must reflect your taste and should never be banal. For this reason, the Bontempi Casa catalog is full of solutions designed to amaze and capture attention, always with the grace and elegance typical of made in Italy design. They range from rectangular or square tables in precious materials such as crystal, SuperMarble or SuperCeramic to tables whose top rests on structures that are real artistic sculptures, always customizable in the choice of colors and finishes – as you can experiment thanks to the Bontempi Casa configurator.

18Furniture can be renewed every season, just like clothing. The Spring-Summer 2020 furniture trends are nothing but the mirror of the deep desire for colour and lightness that we are feeling right now. After a long and very strange winter, due to the Covid-19 emergency, the lockdown has been lifted. The sun, the blooming trees and the spring air remind us that we are approaching summer. And even our houses, inside and outside, can “wear” the perfect shades and materials for this season.

There are many home furnishing styles: there are those who prefer minimal accessories, those who look at old fashioned shapes, and those playing with decorations. But every style can have a link with contemporary furniture trends. Let’s discover all the living room furniture trends, but also the news for the courtyard and the garden, of this Spring-Summer 2020.

Summer living room decor trends

The living room is the environment of the house we live the most: for some it can be the dining room, for others it is a separate space. However, it is generally the place where we pay the most attention to furniture. This year, it will be even more important to make space, because living in airy and bright environments, now more than ever, is becoming essential for a healthy lifestyle.

The 2020 furniture trends suggest using a few large accessories and limiting decorative objects. After an economic and social crisis like the one we are going through right now, after all, priorities are back in order. Essential pieces, therefore, but precious. The sideboards are back, a passe-partout piece of furniture that can be used as a wardrobe, sideboard or chest of drawers. Round tables (that have a wider optical effect than rectangular ones); chairs with essential shapes, only a few frills, but lots of colour.

Summer 2020 furniture colour trends: yellow and orange

Vitaminic, energetic and sunny yellow cannot be missing in your home and in the garden this summer! Tables and small pieces of furniture lend themselves well to this trendy tone. Orange is its faithful companion: for some seasons now, it has come back in all its nuances. Bontempi Casa has made terracotta, the autumn version of orange, the best colour of last autumn-winter season. With summer it returns to cover the leather of coffee tables and armchairs, to represent a warm and lively environment. These homely tones can be combined with white and khaki.

Summer 2020 furniture colour trends: pink and neutral shades

Pink, the feminine shade “par excellence” but now expanded to a wider audience, dresses the interiors and exteriors of those who have a vaguely retro home. Pink gives brightness and radiance to the environment, and ever as in summer 2020 it is a trendy shade that makes your home brighter. Interior designers call it Cloud Pink – that recalls the shade of the most evocative sunsets. Perfect for curtains, wallpaper, lamps and rugs.

And finally, there are neutral colours, like beige, taupe, ochre, cream white – those that never go out of fashion. Perfect not only for curtains, rugs and sofa covers, but also for tables or suspension lamps, cushions for outdoor stools and covered chairs. Their light touch serves to dampen the energy given by the more powerful colours: the combination of both is essential for a harmonious as well as trendy home.

Summer 2020 furniture trends: materials

One key word: lightness, like the one we need so much in everyday life, especially now. After a winter spent in isolation, there is nothing better than dressing the house with delicate, airy, light fabrics. Let’s say yes to quality cushions on the seats also on the terrace, chairs covered with fabric, tables made of transparent crystal. Lightness expresses throughout materials.

0There is a desire that never stops, even when the years pass by, it comes back every spring. It is the wish to be outside enjoying the outdoor spaces of our homes, like the terrace or the garden. Those that represent a real extension of the house and therefore must be furnished in the same style. A crucial piece of furniture, as well as a great protagonist of summertime with family and friends, is the table for outdoors. It should be picked up with an eye for shapes and materials. The size should match the habits of the owners and fit the space that’s available. Quality materials are needed, as it has to resist to the weather and the use. That’s why Bontempi Casa tables are made of lacquered metal specifically produced for outdoors.

Fixed Sander table and Freak stackable chairs

The elliptical crystal top expresses elegance and lightness, but the more classic rectangular variant is also available. In both versions, the central structure is made of lacquered metal for outdoors and it is designed to not obstruct the seats. This modern design adds a touch of style that does not go unnoticed – and which is also in the geometric patterns of the Freak chair back, or in the seat of the Boss stool. This is the ideal combination of products we advise to complete the furnishing of your garden or veranda.

Diesis fixed table and Hidra chairs

We must keep in mind a few tips regarding the choice of tables and chairs for the terrace and we will have the ideal environment for a wonderful summertime. The first thing to do is to see how much space we have available and decide how we want to use it. Then, let’s choose the furniture accordingly.

Sitting in good company around the dining table is one of the greatest pleasures we can give ourselves in everyday life, but if the chairs are not beautiful, practical and comfortable… What kind of pleasure is it? Whether the dining table is placed in the kitchen or in the living room, the choice of dining table chairs is a detail that plays an important role in defining the environment and giving character to the furniture. Today, in fact, the kitchen is more often an open space that communicates with the rest of the house, and the chairs can represent a common thread in the preparation of the different rooms. Having overcome the old diktats regarding the combination of chairs and dining tables, then, the modern furnishing provides for many more free and creative combinations than in the past.

How to match chairs to the dining table

Today, it is common to buy chairs separately from the table, even choosing different styles, between classic and contemporary. Different chairs can also be placed altogether, because they are linked by a common element that can be style, material or colour. In the Bontempi Casa catalogue there are many options to create the combination that best reflects your taste.

Sedie e tavolo da pranzo
Cruz extendable table with metal structure and veneered wooden top. Chairs with trellis structure in lacquered metal, back in polypropylene and wooden seat.

An ideal example of furnishing accessories that help to create a common thread between the kitchen and the living area is the Polo seating family.

Polo chairs with trellis structure have been positioned around the Cruz dining table, while the stool version is the most modern solution to complete a kitchen with a central island.

Chairs for modern kitchens are comfortable as well as practical and functional, light enough to be moved without any difficulty in case you want to add a place at the table, or to reach the highest shelves. The material is also very important, it must be impact resistant and easily washable. Seventy chair is the perfect synthesis of these characteristics: it has an essential-shaped metal structure and it is covered with ecological leather or leather. The black variant of Seventy chair perfectly matches the structure of Genio table and a piece of furniture with strong personality.
