An Harmony of Styles: The Transformation of Ristorante al Contadino
Firstly, I must say I adore the décor of this stunning venue nestled in the greenery of the Colli Euganei. Collaborating with the owner to find the best solution proved to be a creatively stimulating experience.
The request from Ristorante al Contadino arose from the need to balance the classic and modern elements of the main dining room, aiming to strike the right balance without veering too much towards shabby-chic. We proposed a variation of the Versailles dining chair (BS100A) and its accompanying chair (BS100S), lightened by removing the baroque engravings on the legs and complemented with the choice of a Class 1IM fireproof Econabuk fabric, washable, stain-resistant, and water-repellent.
The fabric finish with capitonné craftsmanship is elegant, scenic, and visually impactful, enhanced by studded cord detailing.
Finding the right balance between classic and modern.
The frame was treated with a distressed finish. This effect is achieved by applying a first layer of tone-matching varnish, followed by the final lacquering. The antiqued effect is then achieved by delicately removing the lacquer from the edges by hand to reveal the underlying tint.
This project concluded with great satisfaction for the aesthetic result achieved, leaving me seated at my computer searching online for those wonderful decorative items.
