Living Well with Traditional and Modern

Claudio Luti and Maria Castelli

I have been working with a client who has a traditional home and at present we are adding new pieces of daring modern furnishings to create a more interesting and eclectic interior. I was glad to come across this Italian home of Claudio Luti and his wife, Maria Castelli as it is a great example of what we are trying to achieve. Luti is the chairman and owner of Italian furniture company, Kartell so naturally pieces from this innovative brand are scattered throughout the home. These interiors demonstrate how taking the bold step to mix influences can be so successful and stylish.

Violet velvet Pop chairs by Piero Lissoni sit in the library

Kartell T-tables by Patricia Urquiola and a Bourgie lamp by Ferrucio Laviani are part of the mix in this living area

A Mr Impossible chair, Cindy lamp and Combak chair sit well in this traditional setting.

This desk from late 17th century is paired with Combak chairs by Patricia Urquiola and Taj lamp by Ferruccio Laviani.
