Furniture Spotlight, Costantini Design, its a man’s, man’s, man’s, man’s world.

Is furniture gender specific?  Costantini Design is as masculine as the smell of leather seats inside a vintage Ferrari. Their furniture is very grown up, clean cut, confident and timeless. If it were a person it would have a square jaw and look good in a tuxedo.

leather-lounge-chair Belgrano Costantini Design

This is the Belgrano Chair, made out of many leathers and custom made in the size required, it wouldn’t be out of place in the smoking room of a gentleman’s club. The details are perfect and its as butch as a mastiff bull terrier. Sit in one and you’ll find yourself ordering Port and Cigars. Just look and imagine yourself in one. You know how comfortable they are.

chaise-longue-fidella Costantini Design

If there is an inherently feminine piece of furniture it is a chaise lounge. Oscar Wilde is probably the only man we can remember being photographed on one. But the Fidella Chaise Longue has the simple, confident lines that are so typical of Costantini. It features a hardwood frame, springs and webbing, cushions available in foam core with enveloped down or loose feather/down with synthetic fiber. Shown in fabric. Available in any fabric, leather, or slip covered . Shown as 84” L X 36” D X 33” but other dimensions are available.

exotic-wood-entertainment-cent Costantini Design

This is Adria’s Pyxis, described by Costantini as ‘Classically divine storage for your electronic addictions’ .  Made from Bleached Makore, Bronze, and Chenille with a Guayubira and Vavona Burl inlay, 56″ x 66″ it achieves what every media cabinet should. It begs to be kept closed.

Frankies Trunk Costantini Design

This is Frankie’s Trunk.   Shown in aged recovered wood with matte distressed espresso finish. Available in different finishes and all sorts of sizes. As a small child you would just know that your Christmas present would be hidden in there. And you know it is going to be good. But would you dare look inside? This is what we mean by ‘grown up furniture’.

Malba table Costantini Design

This is the Malba Table. As you would expect from Costantini, it can be made in any shape or size. Shown in stained Guayubira it is simply a lovely, solid piece of furniture.

trestle-table Costantini Design
And isn’t this a great, no nonsense table? Available in custom sizes, made from Guayubira, Paraiso, Soita, and South American Cherry. I want to eat my dinner from it, write my blogs on it and gather my family and other loved ones around it.
Vincent Chandelier Costantini Design
And this is what should be hanging above it, a very masculine chandelier. The Vincent Chandelier is made from hand wrought iron, and is also available with electric lamps. 40” Diameter x 72” drop as shown. Other dimensions available.

On another blog I would be happy to elaborate on theories of masculinity and femininity. I will talk about how the differences withing each gender are more significant than the differences between them and how everyone has masculine and feminine sides and aspects and why that’s a good thing.  Fine.  But right now I am very much in touch with my masculine side and, as I sip a brandy and I smoke my cigar really feel I should be surrounded by furniture from Costantini.
Yours truly, Dorothy.
