A Malibu Project
CANTONI'S LA DESIGN TEAM WAS UP TO THE CHALLENGE OF CREATING A HOME EQUALLY AS UNCOMMON AND DISTINCTIVE AS ITS OWNER'S CAR COLLECTION, CREATING A TRULY STUNNING DISPLAY OF MODERN STYLES.
One of the most important factors in furnishing a client’s home is designing it to meet the individual’s personality and lifestyle. It is clear that the owner’s taste in cars is sleek, sexy, and unique, therefore, it was important his home reflect equally alluring interiors. Inspired by the home’s stunning architectural features, like the rich stone floors and built-in brick fireplace, the Design Team selected a neutral palette of brown tones with pops of orange to add excitement and a modern flare.
In the open living area, the design team paired the Otello sofa in a rich brown Italian leather with contrasting Savona chairs. To tie all of the pieces in the open living room together, the design team had the client’s pre-existing built-in sofa reupholstered in a warm caramel-brown Italian leather. With its extra deep seats and soft-hand, the newly-renovated sofa served as the perfect place to sprawl out and relax–quickly becoming a favorite amongst the owner’s beloved poodles, Carrera and Bentley.
To energize the space and add visual interest, the design team infused pops of orange first in the kitchen with the Toto bar stools customized in the vibrant hue and again in the dining room with custom Italian side chairs. The end result–a sleek and modern retreat perfectly tailored to the client’s lifestyle — is exactly what the client had wished for and more.
