Viana Dressing Table by Malabar
Curling, twisting and plaiting of fine threads of metal results in a sublime artistic expression named Filigree. This piece of art of ancient origin, that has only a few knowledgeable artisans reproducing the technique today, is proudly displayed on Viana modern dressing table. This fine jewelry was applied to the legs of Viana, that besides the silver filigree, also carries all the lines of traditional Portuguese furniture. The ombré effect creates a color transition of black to white, and the high gloss varnish finish updates the classic charm. On the interior, the luminous bordeaux velvet will wrap a womans best friends in a perfect state of maintenance.
Majestic Side Table by Malabar
A tribute to the Modernism movement established in the early 1900s, the Majestic modern side table set is a memento of the coffeehouses of conversation and exchange in which intellectual elites such as Fernando Pessoa advanced ideas about national culture and politics. The aesthetic movement that was present then was here materialized in the elegant but subtle and minimalist lines of the Majestic modern side table. The contemporary side table’s precious finishing in gold leaf and piano black lacquer are much like the magnificent appearance of the café that lends its name to the pieces.
Slim Console by Malabar
Inspired by Mies Van Der Rohe and based on his artistic vision of “Less is more”, Slim contemporary console was designed. Following the philosophy of this renowned architect, the Slim modern console stands out for its elegant and sophisticated lines which were made for thriving in a cosmopolitan environment. This minimalist yet contemporary console with a metallic blue Malabar finish becomes a clear appeal for its precise geometry and simple refinement.
