Chelini, a Florentine company that produces handcrafted luxury furniture and furnishing accessories, tells about a classical world that is faithful to the standards of the Tuscan handicraft tradition, and yet is inspired by the present, with a superlative planning and aesthetic sensitivity that highlights luxury in its most authentic form.
Maison Chelini is deeply rooted in the Tuscan handicraft tradition, and yet, while remaining faithful to a refined classical foundation, it’s committed to constant renovation. Classic methods and modern materials are the main elements used by Chelini to produce unique, durable and elegant furniture, in collaboration with the most famous names of contemporary design.
Elegant furniture: interior design masterpieces
Elegant furniture is more than just mere pieces of furniture. It consists of works of art that enshrine ideas, emotions and traditions.
Classicism and modernity blend harmoniously into an elegant location. Classical inspirations, sophisticated decorations, inlays, references to tradition and a few designer items placed in a strategic position can make any house glamorous, even small-sized ones.
True furniture gems with unprecedented shapes, fine materials, lines and finishes in contemporary style marry with the classic style refinement, and the house becomes a miniature world to explore, room after room, in which to savour elegance in its multifaceted expressions.
Elegant fittings is characterised by high quality and excellent workmanship, as well as the use of exquisite cloths and wonderful fabrics, which combine classicism, elegance and creative sophistication, resulting in a perfect balance between aesthetics and functionality, including:
It’s not unusual to find haute couture fabrics matched with majestic furniture in elegant locations. The tactile sensation of fine materials such as silk, linen, satin and velvet merges with the brightness of the colours.
Great attention to detail
We scrupulously take care of every detail, from the purchase of wood to the handmade finishes of every single creation. The master craftsmen at Maison Chelini process the wood daily by using their hands and little else, and manufacture unique, exclusive and elegant furniture. The covering and stuffing procedures are carried out in full respect of the oldest Florentine tradition.
Neutral nuances from grey to sand are the most suitable for an elegant location. We suggest you choose one or two main neutral colours at most and only vary their shades, and let a more intense colour, such as blue, purple or black, break the room’s homogeneity. This will lend an irresistible charm to the rooms.
The focal point
Every room should have a clear and precise focal point that draws attention to it at first sight. Some examples? A striking piece of furniture, a fireplace or a lamp with an unusual design.
The lighting lends a scenographic, majestic and lavish nature to elegant locations. So, green light to chandeliers, floor lamps, designer lamps and table lamps with fabric lampshades.
Less is more
“Less is more” is the new rule of elegance. Aim for a tidy, minimalist room with few refined, tasteful, high-quality and elegant pieces of furniture. Chaos doesn’t belong to an elegant house. Cluttering every room with worthless furnishing accessories, also aesthetically speaking, will greatly limit the space available and won’t contribute to making your house more beautiful.
Furniture for elegant dining rooms
An elegant dining room is a triumph of fascinating simplicity, and is based on a refined balance between sober nuances, a smooth design and attention to detail. The surfaces must be well-balanced, and it’s essential that all elements are harmoniously connected or, conversely, that they create pleasant contrasts.
Let’s find out which are the must-haves for an elegant dining room.
A dining table combines functionality and elegance by adapting to different furnishing solutions. Green light to warm and welcoming golden details, and silver details, which, if well-measured, will lend a dash of style to the dining room and embellish it with a glamorous touch.
The dining chairs
The dining chairs don’t have to be the same style as the table. If this is the case, the best thing to do is to choose contrasting elements. For example, you could match an industrial style table characterised by clean lines with classic dining chairs that have got a padded seat and backrest, as well as armrests, space permitting. A solid-coloured carpet that matches the hue of the seats will provide the perfect balance, as far as both the colours and the senses are concerned.
The tea trolley
A tea trolley is a must-have in every elegant dining room, and it combines practicality, functionality and elegance. You can use it to serve the courses at lunch or dinner, and it can be placed next to the sofas or the sideboard afterwards.
Proper lighting is fundamental in an elegant dining room. We suggest you place a basic light source next to the dining table, and other light sources in the surrounding area that contribute to creating an atmosphere. A designer lamp strikes one’s imagination and can completely change the harmony of the dining room. In this case, uniqueness is essential.
Elegant furniture for the living room
Here below is an overview of the must-have pieces of furniture for an elegant living room.
A large sofa with a semiclassical shape, capitonné lining and padded armrests with Venetian corduroy on the sides, and silk ad viscose velvet topstitches spreads energy, elegance, brightness and purity.
The Florentine Maison Chelini has contributed to redefining the language of the art of living by transforming the sofa, once a supporting actor, into the protagonist of interior design. The Chelini 1898 catalogue includes a wide selection of padded furniture in neoclassical style, available in different sizes.
A bergère is a famous armchair model that became popular in France in the 18th century. It’s the most classic of all reading chairs, and is characterised by a tall and soft backrest, wide and slightly protruding armrests and a comfortable seat.
Adding a mirror to the living room helps make it look bigger. A mirror surrounded by an artfully carved wooden frame radiates charm, gracefulness and elegance. If you wish to get an even more elegant effect, we suggest you opt for a sunburst frame in the shades of gold.
The fireplace, the king of the living room, warms up and livens up the place. Besides its shape and size, the materials and the finishes too can create surprising visual and material effects. Indeed, it’s an element that contains the key principles on which the concept of elegance is based, that is functionality, comfort and décor.
The wooden console table
An elegant living room is the ideal place for a wooden console table featuring charming details such as inlays, engravings and lines with a strong reference to the 18th century style.
Used as decorative elements in original arrangements, houseplants can add elegant motifs, textures and a touch of colour to the living room in a very natural way.
