L’Ottocento Kitchen Collections: Exalting All the Expressions and Facets of Wood

The best of creativity and craftsmanship come together in impactful designs that embody a timeless spirit.

L’Ottocento celebrates the uniqueness of the partnership between artisan savoir-faire and the materiality of wood. An evocative meeting, narrated by the new proposals created in collaboration with makethatstudio and Michele Marcon Design.

The work of high craftsmanship combines with the creative idea to give life to a contemporary design, thereby elegantly enhancing the expressive intensity of the essences, highlighting their enveloping naturalness.

New geometries together with novel combinations and colour choices combine in functional kitchen environments with a refined allure, inviting a timeless welcome that extends to the dining room.

The common thread of every space, natural materials are enriched with personality, becoming accomplices of a new way of experiencing the home, in the name of well-being surrounded by beauty.

Kitchen with Floral and Isola Virtus storage panelling

Among the new features, the space dedicated to the Floral panelling system with the new Virtus island, conceived from the collaboration with makethatstudio, enhances stylistic harmony through a skilful dialogue between different material and colour choices. The contrast becomes harmony, the styles blend, creating an alluring atmosphere, a synthesis between classic and contemporary.

The enveloping Floral walnut panelling expresses the superior work of high-level cabinet-making, a distinctive feature of L’Ottocento artisanal production. Made entirely of wood and with full height extension, Floral elegantly dresses the walls, revealing a sophisticated mood, with linear features.

Structured with internal compartments functional to operations in the kitchen, the panelling is divided into openable doors to house appliances, storage spaces and shelves. A measured play of contrasts stands out in the central part, once the retractable doors are opened: in this area dedicated to washing, vintage brushed steel is the protagonist, covering the splashback and walls, and applied in the top and wall units.

The new Virtus island completely in brushed vintage steel coordinates with the niche. With an elegant minimalist flavour, mitigated by a refined aesthetic cleanliness, it combines perfectly with the materiality of wood. It excels with its smooth squared door, with an original three-dimensional effect and with the brass profile which underlines its shapes, proving to be a useful handle to open doors and drawers. Also in steel, with the same finish, the top combines aesthetics and functionality, allowing practical use of the kitchen.

Finally, the geometry of the island is interrupted by two cylindrical bases which support the function of connections pass-through, giving lightness to the assembly. On the sides of the niche, two passage doors integrate with the panelling, allowing access to the dining room, dedicated to social living and designed for seamless continuation of the kitchen.

Dining room with Floral storage panelling

In the dining room, the walls covered with blond walnut Floral panelling offer refinement and warmth, enveloping the space and featuring closed and open compartments for different needs, and even including a bookcase with back panel in Verde Alpi marble and wooden shelves.

In the centre, the new Gea table, designed by makethatstudio, has a top in Verde Alpi stained ash and semi-circular bases in coordinated marble and matches the black Ottavia chairs with leather seats, also made by L’Ottocento.

Finally, this dining room is completed by a closed and refrigerated cellar space, with controllable humidity and temperature, created according to the company’s high craftsmanship sartorial standards: the structure is made of blond walnut with aluminium doors complete with bronzed glass, with back part in green Alpi marble, where trays and container compartments are inserted to combine elegance and functionality.

Kitchen with Levante storage panelling and Etesia modules

The new kitchen environment designed by Michele Marcon combines stylistic innovation and glamour. With a soft but linear silhouette, the Levante panelling system in blond ash is characterised by the particular wave workmanship with different steps that composes the wooden wall equipped for operation in the kitchen. The regularity of the panelling is interrupted by the long wall unit with Etesia contoured edge bases. These modules, closed pore Talc lacquered, match the top and Breccia Sarda marble splashback.

In an enveloping design continuity, the panelling effect continues to frame the lacquered Etesia columns with the appliances and is found in the central island, complete with marble top with integrated basin and free-standing snack top made of 6 cm solid ash and with rounded edges. In stylistic coordination, the front wall is covered in wood and marble with the same wavy effect as the kitchen. The sinuous shapes of the panelling are underlined by the light beams of the metal spotlights, made exclusively for L’Ottocento, which are inserted into the vertical opening grooves of the columns.

The Terra di Siena closed pore gloss lacquered Dioniso sideboard integrates into the environment with its curved and linear shapes. Made with particular craftsmanship, Dioniso is a furnishing accessory designed both to add personality to space in the kitchen or living room, through the inclusion of shelves and drawers, and as a cold pantry, functional for the storage of wines and spirits.

Cucina Living

The Living model, in lacquered cherry, is one of the best sellers of the L’Ottocento kitchen collection. Synthesis of a classic linearity, underlined by the rebated door, Living presents itself with a renewed appearance and a bold splash of colour. The midnight blue of the striking base units and wall units, interspersed with the bottle holder and the plate rack in Canaletto walnut, combines with the Blue Explosion quartzite of the splashback and top for a sophisticated atmosphere.


For over 30 years, L’Ottocento kitchens and furnishings have celebrated completely Italian tailor-made manufacturing, combining elegance and efficiency. The precious essences and their evocative expressiveness are the soul of every creation, which is characterised by a timeless style and quality.

Wood represents an ethical and beauty choice, the meeting between well-being and sustainability. It is precisely around this noble and healthy raw material, and its design versatility, that the original and eclectic L’Ottocento furnishing proposals for the kitchen and home environment revolve, where aesthetic research, technological innovation and Italian craftsmanship are found.
