A living room with refined and sartorial appeal designed by Ferruccio Laviani for Smania – the Charme and Charlotte living collections are underscored by contemporary interpretation, distinguished geometries, and an expression of luxury.
Two elegant furniture series that best interpret the company’s spirit and know-how thanks to the creative flair of architect and designer Ferruccio Laviani, in his first collaboration with the Smania, giving rise to a new and distinguishable language that makes use of the artisanal culture and meticulous attention to detail that have always been the brand’s prerogatives.
The Charme line, consisting of sofa and armchair, masterfully embodies the concept of balance between classic and modern, representing versatile aesthetic solutions that distinguish Smania’s profound identity. The structure recalls the historic “hunting” model, considered the first prototype of a sofa since it made its appearance in the early 17th century in Knole House, an English country residence located in Kent. Charme then becomes a contemporary interpretation that makes linear and streamlined geometries the strong point for a fresh and essential design, contrasting with the soft volumes of the seat with its enveloping comfort.
The design of the Charlotte sofa focuses on cushioning with abundant volumes that discreetly conceals the structure. The vehemently highlighted stitching enhances the value and tailoring of the complement, as well as the luxurious allure revealed by the attention to detail, such as the leather-covered feet and steel details.
Since 1967, Smania has been designing, cutting and sewing to make furniture and furnishings that embody their creative DNA, sculptural taste and the intense energy of passion, the ingredients behind the bold beauty at the heart of each creation. This is an expression of luxury, exclusive and unconventional furniture, with attention to all those details that define the total look of the Smania environment. Each piece, an expression of thoughtful and grounded quality, is the result of the pleasure of creating. A sartorial flexibility devoted to personal fulfillment and perfection of detail.
