While a swimming pool is undoubtedly a plus for any home, the real added value is the environment surrounding the pool. That is, the poolside space, which lends itself to truly exclusive moments of sharing, to be enjoyed with your family, friends or special guests. With this in mind, the choice of furniture is vital: chairs, tables, accessories, all elements that contribute to the creation of a wonderful poolside décor.

How to choose chairs for the garden with a swimming pool

When choosing poolside furniture, chairs play a ruling role: they must be comfortable but also give character and style to an open, cool, summery environment. First of all, the choice of chairs must start with their material: wood, metal, resin, plastic, the possibilities are many. Then the available space has to be taken into account and this impacts on the quantity of pieces to be purchased. Comfort is of course paramount for a chair, as is maintenance: considering that outdoor furniture is always exposed to weather phenomena, it is worth opting for durable solutions. A perfect example of the balance between aesthetics and practicality are the chairs and stools from the Moodcollection.

How to choose tables for the garden with a swimming pool

The table is one of the most important design items in any home. And so is the poolside décor, as it will have to accommodate moments of sharing with family or friends. It is therefore a good idea to opt for a versatile model that is not too bulky: use it as a countertop for a cool drink, a coffee or a drink. But also able to host a lunch or dinner, not too long, nor formal.

It is important to choose a model in line with the style of the remaining furniture in order to create a even layout visual-wise. For those who have enough space, it is interesting to consider setting up a gazebo: in that case, the table – protected from the sun – increases in centrality and importance, and lends itself to even longer lunches and dinners. Among the many models of poolside tables, one that stands out for its elegance and versatility is undoubtedly the Moontable.

Poolside decoration: how to create a relaxing atmosphere

When furnishing a space with a swimming pool, whether in-ground or above-ground, it is important to set up a comfortable environment: chairs, tables, parasols, furnishing accessories, must convey harmony and relaxation. In this sense, it is desirable not to occupy too much space: the poolside furniture must allow everyone to move around freely, without creating obstacles in accessing the pool.

Pool furniture: if it is not functional it’s not beautiful

When choosing poolside furniture, one must bear in mind that this is an area that is easily exposed to water splashes. This, together with weather factors and sunlight, can lead to wear and tear of the furniture over time. Therefore, it is better to favour chairs, tables, and furnishings created for the outdoors: with specific materials and workmanship, able to withstand the climatic elements. If you want to go for wood, you can opt for teak or rattan. Alternatively, one can opt for metal or steel furniture, which have the advantage of requiring little maintenance. Wicker solutions have a timeless charm, but are often more fragile in terms of weather resistance.

Garden with a pool: ideas to make it cosy

Poolside furniture should be thought of in relation to the moments of conviviality and sharing that it will host. Whether for family occasions or events with guests, it is right to emphasise style. An elegant design, which above all expresses cosiness, a desire to be together. Poolside tables, chairs, furnishing accessories: everything has to be organised to make people feel comfortable.

When furnishing a home or professional environment, the choice of table often makes all the difference. More than any other element, the table must combine aesthetics and functionality. This is why those who want a prestigious solution opt for a solid wood table.

Why choose a solid wood table

It is a material of great value, with a strong aesthetic impact and at the same time robust, durable and resistant.

In general, it requires little maintenance: it simply needs to be treated with products such as nutritive and protective waxes.

It comes in a wide variety of colour shades, depending on which tree it comes from. And it fits perfectly into any environment, from the most modern to the most rustic.

What is a solid wood table

Solid wood is timber that is milled directly from trees, unlike others such as plywood, medium-density fibreboard or veneers, which are made from composite materials instead.

No fillers or adhesives are used, solid wood contains original wood fibres: this makes solid wood tables solid and aesthetically pleasing.

Solid wood tables: which furniture elements to combine?

Vintage-style romms,country-inspired furniture: obviously, a solid wood table is perfectly at home in these contexts. But it is not the only possibility of use. The solid wood table is often chosen to embellish, as a contrast, an industrial-style environment: among metal, iron, aluminium and steel, the story of a wood with its relief grain stands out. Similarly, to create an interesting and pleasing contrast, solid wood tables are often proposed together with minimal, cold, ultra-modern furnishing accessories. This versatility is evident in the Bridge table model, an emblem of absolute design that can embrace any furnishing style.

Which wood to choose for your solid wood table

If you buy a solid wood table with the idea of using it continuously, it is best to go for hardwoods: for example, oak and birch. If you want to aim for maximum hardness, then mahogany and ebony should be chosen, while softer ones such as spruce and pine should be avoided. For possible outdoor use, it is advisable to opt for oak, olive, teak and chestnut, which have a natural tendency to withstand the elements. If, on the other hand, the basic choice stems from colour requirements, the palette of colours offered by solid wood is really wide. In general, pear, fir and larch should be considered among the light-coloured ones. Among the dark ones are chestnut, walnut and ebony, and various shades of brown and red, such as oak, cherry and elm.

All the secrets of the solid wood table: shapes, spaces and volumes

If you are going to buy a solid wood table, first of all the dimensions of the room should be assessed: ideally, you should consider 80 centimetres from the wall and at least five feet from the passage area. Of course, if space is limited, an extendable table can be considered. Another parameter to consider is height: the recommended one is 70-80 centimetres, while a space between 50 and 60 centimetres wide must be ensured for each person. These considerations determine the choice of table shape: square ones are more practical, creating visual rigour, with their sides that can be placed parallel to the walls. Circular tables, on the other hand, stand out more in the room, but shorten distances and erase seating hierarchies. The oval shape is interesting, creating a compromise between ease of placement in the room and conviviality.

The furnishing of bars, restaurants and venues of all kinds cannot do without a style that is studied and planned down to the smallest detail.
Seats play a decisive role in these projects : they are the first complement that catches the eye, they require particular comfort, they must be robust and hard-wearing if positioned outdoors, and they must remain consistent with the style of the entire room.

Contract chairs for outdoor restaurants

When it comes to an open-air veranda or restaurant, perhaps with a beautiful view of the sea, the factors to take into account are: resistance to wear and tear and the signs of time, practicality and robustness.
Hidra chairs, for example, have an integral structure in Polypropylene and Fibre Glass , making them particularly resistant and suitable for all types of outdoor furniture. Their sinuous, rounded shapes are perfect for adding a touch of elegance to the room, while the variety of colours gives the green light for possible contrast or balance with the surroundings, opening the door to the imagination.

Contract chairs for restaurants and indoor bars

The style of a venue, whatever it is, must be able to give the right impression to the customer right away: this is where a key factor comes into play, namely style. Sometimes, many restaurants begin to furnish their spaces starting from the chairs: there are  furnishing complements capable of setting the tone for the entire surrounding context.

The Shark seat by Bontempi Casa, for example, is a model suitable for modern, sophisticated restaurants that want to distinguish themselves with elegance, thanks to its curved shape and backrest with an oval opening that gives the seat a distinctive character.

Another fine chair in the Bontempi Casa line is Suri a model capable of adapting as much to its environment as to the body which sits on it. This model encapsulates all of Bontempi Casa’s innovation and progress, adapting perfectly to residential, home office, lounge and contract environments.

Furnishing the living area always requires the utmost attention, even to the smallest detail. In addition to furnishing protagonists such as sofas, armchairs, tables and coffee tables, we must also pay attention to decorative elements that can give a decisive edge to our style of living: cushions, lamps, coffee tables and carpets.
Let us broaden our perspective and try to visualise the entirety of the living room, paying attention to all the furnishings, finishes and details that make it up. From this snapshot, we should perceive a space that is emotional, cosy and speaks of us: this is why it is not just a question of matching an armchair to a sofa, but goes far beyond that.
Let’s look at some useful tips to do our best.

Matching cushions to the sofa: the winning formulas

Cushions are a valuable accessory for all living areas because they can help brighten up any room and make it more dynamic. Combinations are endless, but let us start by choosing the direction:

  • Combine soft or pastel colours with brighter shades, as in the case of a Zenit Plus, a modular system in two versions, in grey with square and rectangular cushions tending towards orange or red

  • Tone on tone, but introducing the plots. This is the case with the Bonnie sofa, soft and sinuous, in the cream-coloured version and decorative cushions in geometric shapes and similar shades.
  • Choose the sharp contrast of shape, fabrics and colours, such as the two-seater sofa Antares  in green, combined with its own red ottoman, which echoes some square and rectangular cushions. Its compact design and stitching make it a modern yet undeniably elegant model: perfect for providing the broadest moments of relaxation.

Matching sofas and ottomans: how to choose the right one

If your intention is to create a sequence of references, every single element must be studied to perfection. An elegant and effective example may include the choice of a linear, neutral-coloured sofa such as the Dakota in grey,  tone-on-tone rectangular cushions and blue squares, which recall the colour of the Uchi ottomans and Badu placed around the sofa. Another idea that can add a special touch to any room is Pouffoso a simple and straightforward yet very elegant complement, perfect as a seat or simple decorative element in any room of the house.

Furnishing one’s home, besides being a dream come true, is also a very serious project that requires a lot of energy.
When starting from scratch, in fact, there are many spaces to be filled and imagination must be able to help us in creating a coherent, impactful style that reflects our needs. This is why it is often much more convenient to trust a single partner for the complete furnishing of one’s home, because they are able to offer different proposals from which to indulge in style choices, while remaining consistent with one’s design.

Complete furniture for the living are

If there is an area that can be defined as the centre of any home, it is certainly the living area, which, with furnishing complements such as the sofa is able to give a strong and clear personality to the entire environment.
For example, choosing an important sofa like Bonnie is an excellent starting point for furnishing the living area with elements that create harmony and style references. The corner model with chaise longue adds value by creating a perfect balance between form and structure: the addition of a small table with a crystal top and rose gold frame such as Loop, on the other hand, further embellishes the environment.
To complete the frame of this area, one can opt for a round table such as Fusion with the same rose gold structure and a super marble top.

Living area: choosing complete furnishings

In any living area, the pillar is the table: a symbol of conviviality and the meeting place of any family, it has a key importance in the personality of the entire space.
At first sight, the complete furniture of a living area must convey balance, be cosy and inviting. For example, the choice of combining Millennium, a fixed table with a rose gold frame and super marble top, to the Drop chairs that take up the structure and colour of the cladding, allows you to give personality to the room by creating very strong style references in which the thread is rose gold.
Of the same material are the Charlotte wall-mounted bookcases that establish a well-defined style in the complete furnishing of this room.

Fully furnishing the office

With smart working and remote working, study and work areas must also find their proper place in a home. This is why choosing complete furniture in these situations is not only a smart option, but also a guarantee of functionality and aesthetics.
Certainly activities of this kind require comfortable and spacious worktops, such as Mirage: the fixed or extendable table from the Bontempi Casa line with a modern design and extremely refined taste. Seating is another crucial point in the complete furnishing of a work area: it must be comfortable, in keeping with the overall style and very practical. The choice of models such as Chantal is definitely a guarantee of style and functionality.
In a space like this, it also goes without saying that lighting is one of the most important priorities, which is why floor lamps capable of diffusing the right light are a must. Circle is a perfect option for giving the room the right amount of elegance and properly illuminating the most important points.

When deciding to furnish your living area there are many choices to be made and none to be underestimated, especially when it comes to tables and chairs: the pair of pivotal elements of Italian tradition that refer to conviviality and the beauty of sharing special moments, finding their greatest expression in Made in Italy design , as in the Bontempi Casa line. Matching these elements does not impose any specific rules, but leads to great doubts to be solved: the three possible ways that we have identified for the best combination of tables and chairs are the following:

  • Colour matching
  • Material matching
  • Style matching

Let’s take a step-by-step look at some useful tips and tricks for an optimal result.

Matching colours for tables and chairs

In terms of colour, current trends seem to favour diversity and customisation of combinations, moving away from the concept of “right” in the absolute sense and aiming for the winning choice that reflects the personality, soul and colour of the person who is furnishing the home.

Solid colour table and chairs

The monochromatic matching of tables and chairs is a classic and elegant choice, safe and stylistically consistent. We may play with styles in a mix & match perspective to give dynamism and personality to the space.

Advice from Bontempi Casa: a dining room with an Imperial table with an elliptical solid wood top and Sally chairs in mud colour with contrasting ecru stitching.

Coloured table and chairs

Furnishing accessories such as tables and chairs are the ideal occasion to bring a bit of colour to the environment and give it a strong identity: whatever the style, from classic to modern, colour always finds a place in convivial areas, so the combination of different colours, above all with regard to chairs, is an original and impactful choice.

Advice from Bontempi Casa: mix&match of Chantal chairs with solid wood frame and leatherette seat in red, blue, yellow or beige and Delta table.

The material choice of tables and chairs

When furnishing large spaces, what needs to be kept in mind is the impact that the material of the furnishing accessories has on the overall view, let’s take a look at the different types.

Glass table chairs

A symbol of refinement and elegance, a glass table evokes a modern and minimalist style, the combination of which can be studied according to the finishes: modern, wood, metal or matching, looking for the colour most in harmony with the shade of the glass.

Advice from Bontempi Casa: Bridge table with glass top and Mood chairs with green leather upholstery.

Chairs for wooden table

For lovers of “natural vibes” a combination of wooden tables and chairs is an irresistible appeal, but there is also the possibility of matching the two complements according to the material of the structure.

Advice from Bontempi Casa: Bridge  table in solid wood and black steel base with  Spark chairs that reflect its material structure.

Marble table chairs

A timeless material of undisputed elegance: marble always has an important impact in the home and, like all icons, everybody must pay respect to it.

The advice of Bontempi Casa is to choose chairs that give the right emphasis to the material, maybe by opting for a colour that matches the veining of the marble or that is in sharp contrast, as in the case of a Barone table with marble top combined with Chantal chairs in grape red velvet.

The style of tables and chairs

The first question to ask is: what style do we want for our environment?
This third way sums up the previous two, giving a definitive direction to the choice of combination for tables and chairs with three possibilities:

–       Stylistic consistency
–       Mix&Match
–       Sharp contrast

Any of these ways is based on the choice of materials and colours to give a strong identity to the area to be furnished: the line of Bontempi Casa chairs and tables offers all possibilities, giving ample space to creativity, guaranteed by the Made in Italy quality.

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.

home furnishing ideas

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.

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.

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.
