Sophisticated and stylish, lacquer adds unique character to our signature designs here at The Socialite Family and has done ever since we began. A desirable finish that draws its inspiration from the affluent Parisian world of the eighties and nineties that is so dear to our founder and artistic director, Constance Gennari. A true invitation to travel, it awakens in us the image of the salons of Yves Saint-Laurent and Pierre Bergé, two collectors fascinated by Chinese art and the excellence of its craftsmanship. Their fashion and design imagination has guided our choice of this luminous means of ornamentation to enhance the lines of our iconic products with its softness and brilliance. From small, mobile pieces of furniture like our Carlotta side table, to the curves of our Marcello mirror, to the sculptural base of our Gioia table lamp, this shimmering adornment is an instant eye-catcher. And its brilliance brings character to curvaceous lines as well as sensuality to other, more minimalist forms. This is certainly the case with our latest shade. This deeply desirable burgundy, like a luscious lipstick, can now be found on our Occhio room divider and our Mara angle shelf. So many strong pieces featuring the smooth feel and the precious sheen that make them such objects of desire.
Carlotta side table, €490. Marcello mirror, €490. Gioia table lamp, €420. Occhio room divider, €1800. Mara corner shelf, €1150.
