The notorious pandemic of 2020 multiplied the number of home offices at least by hundreds. People who used to travel to their offices every day, now work from the comfort of their homes. But this implies the need for well- equipped (and well-furnished) home offices. It turns out that a comfy chair, a convenient working desk, and a well-chosen table lamp matter a lot: people work more efficiently in a good environment.
Bellavista Collection, a well-known manufacturer of Italian luxury furniture, worked out a new concept of working from home, reflected in its remarkable pieces, equally gorgeous-looking and extremely practical. In the product catalog on Bellavista’s website, you will find the items to form the core of your perfect home office.
Desks are waiting for you in the same-named sub-category of the TABLES product category. As for a seat, browse ARMCHAIR and CHAIRS sub-categories in the UPHOLSTERED PIECES category and choose the coziest one you feel like spending hours every day.
And please don’t forget about proper lighting your workplace! LIGHT category offers lots of lighting fixtures, including table lamps.
Let’s look at Bellavista’s desks first. There are four of them, but they are so diverse that you surely will like at least one.
Designed in 2015, the DANTE desk was first displayed at Maison & Objet in Paris in 2016; RICHARD was created two years after – in 2018, and two more desks – PRESIDENT and HERITAGE – are a part of the 2020 collection.
The first two have been bestsellers for years, so let’s take a closer look at the two newly designed ones.
PRESIDENT, a somehow monumental and chic-looking desk with a desk return, will surely make you feel like a boss (if you already are one, you’ll feel like a president). Three drawers with a soft-close damping system provide plenty of room for papers and other things.
Wooden parts of this desk are made of solid wood (Italian poplar) with 10 veneering options available, the same on the outer and inner parts. The veneering species include such grand-looking woods as rosewood, ebony, and grey sukupira, not to mention natural and stained oak and American walnut.
The PRESIDENT’s tabletop, modesty panel, and bottom parts of the drawers are padded in belting leather available in a variety of colors. The base and details, including the power grommet, are in cast brass with an antique bronze finish. By the way, there is an inscription that reads “Bellavista Collection” on the grommet.
As to the size, PRESIDENT is rather large. Its top is 260 cm (102.3 in.) wide and 100 cm. (39.4 in) deep; the desk return is 190 cm (74.8 in.) long. PRESIDENT will become a the center of your home office – if you have enough room for it.
The desk named HERITAGE is smaller, but no less luxurious. Its top is 2 meters (78.7inches) wide and 90 cm (35.4 in.) deep, so it will fit into almost any room quite well. The top of the desk return is 107 x 50 cm (42.1 x 19.7 inches).
The structure of this elegant but practical desk is made of attractive-looking matte glazed brass with hammered details. As for the tabletop, it comes in as many as a dozen of veneering options. Among them are fine woods – ebony, dark eucalyptus frise’, dark tanganika frise’, grey sukupira, and natural sycamore. If you like oak, you’ll have a choice among natural, smoke stained, grey stained, and moka stained oak. Prefer American walnut? Feel free to pick natural, moka stained, or dark stained walnut.
What is more, the desk return could be in seven woods or matte lacquer finish (the novelty of 2020, that comes in a rich variety of colors). As an option, you can have the desk return top in five kinds of marble. What one would you like best – maybe, Striato Grey marble with its lovely stripes? Dark-colored, almost black, Pulpis? Or would you prefer elegant Emperador Dark Brown or almost white Calacatta?
To match these grand desks, Bellavista offers you a large choice of chairs and armchairs. Well, it’s up to you to decide what to sit on while working in your luxurious but comfy home office. All these pieces are not only beautiful, but also comfortable to sit on. Take a glance at HILTON chair with its ebonized beechwood structure and leather upholstery – isn’t it fashionable? If you look at its handle for backrest (cast brass with antique bronze finish), you’ll see ‘BELLAVISTA’ engraving on it. Quite like any good office chair, HILTON has wheels, as well as a swiveling base with a seat height adjustment system.
Or would you prefer BRISTOL? Dark-colored moka beechwood structure and leather upholstery (or fabric, if you wish) fit together perfectly.
Actually, a considerable part of Bellavista’s chairs and arm-chairs could serve you as a home office seat. What about MASARYK, with the structure in moka stained beechwood and optional arms in brass, lovely CORINNE, or modest MARGOT? Just browse through the brand’s website, and you’ll find your dream of a chair.
Well, now that you have picked what to sit on – and at – it’s high time to get a table lamp for your home office.
Designed in a kind of a high-tech style, AMANDA is virtually cut out for an office desk. The somehow unusual shape of all-metal this lamp turns heads instantly. Its structure is made entirely of cast brass with an antique bronze finish.
This lamp is of optimal size to be placed onto a desk. It’s is 35 cm (13.8 in.) high, 40 cm (15.7 in.) long and 14 cm (5.4 in.) wide.
AMANDA is equipped with a touch activated strip LED (7W), instead of light bulbs, which implies extremely low power consumption. Nevertheless, it provides enough light for working on a laptop.
All in all, furnishing your home office in Bellavista style is a pretty good idea: since this brand has long been known for manufacturing high-quality and durable pieces, every item will serve you for decades to come, remaining as beautiful as on the day it was purchased.
