Traditional style in the name of the warmth of wood, or more contemporary and design focused? Furnishing the home on the mountain is first of all a choice of style. Between classic chalets with double pitched roofs, large windows overlooking the mountains and more modern apartments, mountain and design lovers have several options to choose and furnish the winter retreat (not only) that best reflects their taste.
What certainly unites all of them is the desire to create the most comfortable environment where to relax and disconnect from city life. Wood is a great classic of furniture for the mountain home, it creates a sense of fusion between the external nature and the internal environment, and it is also very trendy. It recalls the Scandi style, inspired by Scandinavian countries, where every detail is designed to make the house a warm and welcoming place. Natural materials and neutral and relaxing colors are the coordinates to follow.
What should never be missing in the furnishing of a mountain home? A nice table around which to gather for a family dinner, an evening dedicated to board games or simply for a chat among old and new friends. The ideal seats, classic or modern, are padded for maximum comfort. To bring a modern touch to the rustic mountain style, the Artistico table combines the solid walnut top with its original cross-legged structure, while on the contrary the Aron table has a solid oak wood structure with traditional lines highlighted from the glass top.
The alternative is a table with more minimalist lines like Echo, that can be combined with the refined colored Penelope armchairs. In all cases, wood demonstrates its versatility and gives warmth to the environment.
Another focal point to take into consideration when looking for furnishing ideas for a mountain home is certainly the fireplace. Watching the fire crackle has a relaxing and soothing effect: why not to create a corner dedicated to relaxation and reading with a comfortable armchair? Enveloping and ergonomic shapes, together with super comfortable padding, make the Daya armchair and its matching footrest pouf the ideal place to find refreshment after a day on the slopes.
Next to the fireplace, then, you cannot miss a coffee table to choose in the style that best suits the furnishing of our mountain home. An interesting alternative to the classic wooden coffee table can be given by a design piece of glass, an element that “breaks” and lightens the whole with its delicate line. Igloo is a discreet companion that in an instant can double the support space available to pour yourself a cup of tea, stack books to read, write notes…
There are so many possibilities to furnish your home in the mountains with a modern and elegant style, while maintaining the warm and welcoming atmosphere for which we love these shelters in the woods. With its precious woods and warm and enveloping fabrics, from velvet to virgin wool, the Bontempi Casa catalog is also full of ideas for mountain furnishings.
