Not always the classic style is ... classic.
In this renovation of a farmhouse in San Matteo delle Chiaviche in the province of Mantua, the architect wanted to create a very tidy environment that would welcome those who enter (the kitchen is visible at entrance) and that would correctly match both with the sober armchairs in classical style and with the stone used for the flooring. The aimed result, however, should not have turned in an algid and anonymous environment, betraying both the homeowners' spirit of and that of the farmhouse, which is an open and social environment.
And that's why the choice fell on our kitchen Pienza, which combines a clean line with a series of welcoming but straightforward details that allow you to avoid the excess of minimalism.
Let's start with the colour, a very delicate hemp matt patina, which perfectly matches the natural stone floor and the anthracite grey fabric of the entrance armchairs, with which it shares the first glance of those entering (also underlined by the friendly wooden 'welcome' resting on the Liberty hood, endowed with steel tie rods and enhanced suction motor).
The solution of the central island then makes sure that those who are cooking on the impressive six-burner hob will turn towards the diners seated at the fixed Dorian dining table with turned leg and marble top; for the latter, as for the Giusy upholstered chairs, an opaque patinated titanium colour has been chosen.
On the island' sides, as well as on the hanging plate rack with integrated LED spotlights, the Opera decorative sides stay applied, to refine it and to satisfy your eye even on the less exposed surfaces.
In the background, there is the kitchen, enhanced by the Este boiserie with horizontal staves in colonial ash, on which the shaped shelves rest.
At the base, the technical marble Metropolis Dark finishes and protects above all the area affected by the sink in fragranite.
