5 Italian furniture styles you absolutely need to know

 

What are the Italian furniture styles?

When we talk about beauty and quality as the cornerstones of Made in Italy design, we are referring to all the Italian furniture styles. In fact, every room in the home, from the most traditional to the most modern, can acquire value and uniqueness if it is furnished according to the aesthetic rules of the Italian style.

In this sense, the Arredoclassic and Adora collections represent the very best of the modern and classic Italian style furniture collections, respectively. The reason is simple: these brands embody the values that have contributed over time to building the fame and appeal of the Italian furniture-making tradition.

We just have to discover the five classic and modern Italian furniture styles most beloved and chosen by those who wish to bring the beauty of Made in Italy design to their homes.

 

1. Art Deco: the most eclectic of the classic Italian style furnishings

Among the Italian furniture styles, Art Deco is the one that best blends elements from different styles.

A style distinguished by its refined nature, highlighted by the use of fine materials and sharp geometric shapes, but also by its creative and "carefree" appeal. A good example is the Dolce Vita collection by Arredoclassic, characterized by vivid color contrasts, decorations and patterns. Just look at the living area, which features a delicate balance between sturdy geometric surfaces and soft, curvy shapes, mixing luxury, coziness, and eclectic details.

2. Charm and harmony with the neoclassical allure of the Italian style

The neoclassical style, inspired by the splendors of Greek and Roman architecture, charms with its majestic yet simple lines that evoke the aesthetic purity of antiquity.

Arredoclassic has designed collections that can bring these elements to life and shape them harmoniously to the decor of contemporary homes.

In the Fantasia collection, for example, references to the neoclassical world are very clear: from the bright shades of ivory to the furniture embellished with rich inlays, the light notes with gold leaf details, to the sofas with fan-shaped backs, through the linear and imposing structure of the large dining table.

3. The unmistakable design of the classic Impero style

The Impero style, perfect for those who desire a sumptuous environment, stands out for the use of fine materials and high-quality fabrics, with an emphasis on walnut hues and the striking contrast between the warm nuance of wood and the brightness of gold leaf decorations.

Among the Italian furniture styles, the Modigliani collection by Arredoclassic is the one that best expresses the Impero style, and it does so through dining tables with sturdy bases decorated with gilded details, upholstered seating with damask fabrics, imposing display cases, and classic Italian style furniture with the iconic 'elephant's foot'.

4. Modern Italian Style Furniture: the charm of Adora's Luce collection

A 'hybrid' approach that will win you over with its ability to blend the luxury of Italian furniture styles and the functionality of the modern world is the contemporary luxury style of the Luce collection by Adora.

A collection that "doubles up" by offering a Light and a Dark version, featuring different finishes. The former focuses on total brightness, uniformity and visual continuity; the latter introduces an element of "mystery": a color contrast that makes the atmosphere glamorous and luxurious.

5. Contemporary Italian luxury in Adora's Moderna collection

The last of the Italian furniture styles we want to introduce focuses on the bedroom furniture. Let's talk about the Moderna collection, which incorporates the compact shapes of contemporary design with the typical styles of luxury Made in Italy characterizing Adora.

This collection stands out for its essential shapes, subdued colors, and functional design, with the addition of some luxury touches that make it unique. The spirit of Moderna emerges from the choice of the sophisticated smoky gray Sycamore wood finish for all the furniture elements-nightstands, chest of drawers, wardrobe, bed, and the glossy black top that protrudes slightly from the body of the furniture, creating a three-dimensional effect that enhances the tone-on-tone of gray and black.
