LLOYD BRUCE HOME Presents Bentley's Meticulously Crafted Home Furnishings

The Bentley automobile has long been renowned for the elegant comfort and polished sophistication of its interiors. Now, for the first time ever, this uniquely decadent feel can be experienced right in your own home.

Unveiled at Milan's Salon del Mobile 2014, the Bentley Home Collection was designed in collaboration with Italy's leading luxury furniture maker, Luxury Living Group. Inspired by the spirit of the Bentley driver, the meticulously crafted line of furnishings and accessories aims to bring the impeccable workmanship and exclusive materials Bentley is known for into home and executive interiors.

"This exciting collaboration captures the shared values of Bentley and Luxury Living," says Sales and Marketing Board Member Kevin Rose, "with unrivalled attention to detail and a stunning translation of the timeless style of the brand."

As in the case of the automobile, Bentley fuses a tradition of quality with functional performance, the collection incorporates classic style elements with edgy architectural detail for a look that's entirely one of a kind. A pastel palette emphasizes neutral shades such as mocha, cognac, and taupe with bolder accents of brick, burgundy, or blue and hints of menswear-inspired pattern in pinstripe or hounds-tooth. The multi-dimensional textures are an interplay of tactile senses - creamy leathers, rich velvets, and feather-light cashmeres, shown off to perfection in fine upholstery as well as intricately hand-knotted carpets in wools or silks and luscious mink-trimmed throws.

Some signature pieces include the geometric Butterfly sofa and chair, quilted in Bentley's iconic diamond patterns; the ice grey and champagne leather Kensington Royce armchair; and the Madeley table, set on a trapezoid leather-covered bent-wood base.

The line also showcases the premium Richmond collection, exploring a 'double shell' theme executed in burled walnut briar root (used in Bentley automobile interiors) and quilted leather upholstery, highlighted with finishes of steel gun-metal, Ebony Macassar essence and Calacatta marble.
