Kartell is one of those brands which always sends a shiver of excitement up our spines here at B&S HQ. Creativity and innovative design are the cornerstones of Kartell, making it a go-to brand for cutting-edge furniture for the home.
Founded in the 1940s, Kartell began life as an automotive accessory company, but by the 1960s had moved into home interiors – and we’re glad it did! This Italian company is now world-renowned for its unique furniture and the way it engineers and produces its pieces. The key ideas behind the brand are affordability, durability, style and forward-thinking, ensuring it always sit at the front of the design race.
The headquarters are based in Milan so it’s easy to see where all the great inspiration comes from. Kartell designers specialise in creating stand-out furniture for any interior design scheme. With everything from lighting, to chairs and accessories there’s something for every home.
A couple of our favourite products include the Louis Ghost Armchair designed by none other than French design legend Philippe Stark. And, his love affair with this brand doesn’t end there. Most recently Philippe designed the ‘Aunts and Uncles’ collection which has secured his place in the Kartell hall of fame. This chair is full of French opulence that pays homage to the era of Louis XV. It is by far one of the most-loved and popular Kartell products and is regularly featured in high-styled photoshoots.
Another one of our top Kartell picks is the Bookworm book case. The diverse nature of this product is incredible, it can be hung on the wall as wall-art, used as storage or of course as a place to keep all your top reads! Made from batch dyed PVC, the flexible nature of the bookworm means you can mould it to any shape you choose, and these unlimited shaped formations have made it an iconic furniture piece of the 21st century.
