Strong, distinctive lines and timeless shapes characterise the new furniture designs by Carlo Colombo in close
collaboration with Bentley Design, and introduce Bentley Home’s new Degradé lacquering and new MARM \ MORE
marble powder fabric.
Bentley Home unveiled four bold new furniture designs: the Aldford Table, the Ramsey Sofa, the Loveseat and the
Styal Desk. The new collection features unique lacquered finish and an exciting new fabric produced from marble
powder among a choice of finishes.
Degradé lacquering is key to the overall aesthetic of the 2021 Bentley Home Collection, and brings a sense of
quintessential luxury that is both customisable and instantly recognisable. Degradé involves an incredibly intricate and complex process to achieve the high standards required by the luxury industry. Before the Degradé essence can be created, a coat of varnish is hand-applied to protect the wood. A master craftsman must then use an airbrush to apply the colour by hand, with just the right dose of lacquer, gradually drawing away from the wood to accentuate the colour gradient and faithfully replicate every detail of the natural shading. After this long process, a round of polishing is required to give the product body, depth and solidity. Four coats of varnish are then applied before a final round of polishing.
The elegant finish is brought to life in a variety of options: Deep Ocean, Midnight Walnut, Black Kenya, Dark Shadow, Rust Degradé, Silver Degradé and Bronze Degradé. Each of these options is characterised by subtle nuances which range from black, to distinctive metallic colours that make each hand-painted product unique and unrepeatable. Each product within the new collection features the Degradé essence, and this technique can also be applied to past Bentley Home designs too.
MARM \ MORE is an innovative, ethical new fabric making its debut in the furniture world, developed and patented for Bentley Home.
The new MARM \ MORE fabric from marble utilises the genuine dust that is a bi-product of marble production.
Sourced and produced in Italy from start to finish, master craftsmen are required to complete every step on the
journey from powder to furniture wrap.
Marble is known to be the ultimate material for sculpture and architecture, and is now stylishly and innovatively
reinterpreted for fabric. Harnessing the natural power of marble, it restores value to its unique dust, transforming it into a textile that offers unmatched technical performance and aesthetic qualities. The precious marble powder fabric gracefully dresses the 2021 Bentley Home Collection, accentuating the elegant shapes of the furniture designs.
Developing the new fabric was a complex and lengthy process. Production of the fabric requires the powder from
high quality marble to be mixed with a special composite to obtain a liquid microfilm. The microfilm recipe is then
coupled with the selected cotton base textile to produce this unique fabric finish. This innovation in textile
development uses renewable resources only and results in significant waste reduction.
MARM \ MORE is available in a choice of two different colours: light grey and natural green, each with a matte
finish. This innovative covering can be chosen for every upholstered product within the new collection, and also
applied to previous designs from Bentley Home.
Bentley Home Styal
During these times where the office has forcibly entered our homes, Bentley Home elevates the concept of office
space, giving shape to an iconic product, luxurious and refined throughout every detail.
A succession of graceful curves run the length of the 3 metre wooden frame, covered in a choice of leather or veneer, with the sideboard elegantly positioned for balanced proportion. The desktop is punctuated with a gun metal grey insert: a visual “incision” that accentuates its sculptural profile, governing its lines and leading the curves at either end.
The Styal desk is broken down into four elements, subdivided by a metal profile, which can be covered in either leather or veneer. Slim and light, extreme from all perspectives, Styal dramatically reimagines the experience of working from home.
Bentley Home Aldford Table
Design and art come together in the clean, sleek lines of the new Aldford Table, with both rectangular and circular
versions available to choose from. Legs taper up from the floor and meet under the top in a single form, accentuating the sense of lightness and suspension. The design is enhanced by the three layers that make up the tabletop: the underside is lacquered in glossy black, and a metal profile runs around the perimeter.
Aldford presented a completely new constructional challenge for the designers at the Luxury Living Group and the
craftspeople at Bentley Home. The double curve of the base and the sloping edge of the top are achieved using the
very latest milling techniques.
Customers can choose from three finishes for the legs: Burr Walnut, Smoked Liquid Ambar, or leather-covered. The
top is available in Calacatta or Valentine Grey marble, or glossy Burr Walnut, Smoked Liquid Amber or Warm Grey
Fiddleback Sycamore. Degradé lacquering is applied to all wood finishes.
Bentley Home Ramsey Range
The Ramsey range appears to defy gravity: its seat is suspended off the floor, and its tapered shell flows into armrests that reach upwards like outstretched wings. The lines are delicate, split only by a transparent panel between the seat and backrest. A gun metal grey insert frames the profile, reaching down below the seat, emphasising the apparent defiance of gravity.
With graceful proportions, the Ramsey Loveseat is the first loveseat conceived by Bentley Home. It is therefore fitting that this design proposes a new dimension of luxury through its evolving spatial requirements, that will suit the most contemporary of homes, both alongside or independently from the Ramsey Sofa.
Both the sofa and loveseat are available in a choice of coverings: Warm Grey Fiddleback Sycamore, Smoked
Liquidambar, Burr Walnut root, or alternatively, covered in leather or the marble powder fabric. Degradé lacquering is also applied to the wood finishes.
Bentley Mulliner creates a limited edition exclusively for Japan
Bentley Mulliner has added to its new and expanding Collections portfolio with an expertly hand-crafted limited edition for the Japanese automotive market – Bentley Continental GT V8 Equinox Edition. Based around a monochrome colour theme of black, silver and white, the Equinox theme is one that brings power and grace through simplicity.
The exterior of the car has a powerful presence thanks to the contrasting monotone styling that accentuates the
dynamic and powerful look of the Continental GT. The choice of powerful black Onyx or icy cool Glacier White exterior paint highlights the sculpted body and sweeping power line that guides the eye along the stunning profile to the muscular rear haunch and down to the striking wheels below.
To further enhance the exquisite lines and authoritative appearance of the Continental GT, Bentley Mulliner has
applied a Moonbeam (a rich silver) contrast accent pinstripe to the edge of the carbon fibre pieces. The accent line is painted by hand and takes five days per car to apply. In addition the 22” Mulliner Driving Specification wheel is uniquely finished in dark metallic Tungsten paint.
