Fun, baby. Rampazzi and Villa: Anti-conformity from Italy.

Carlo Rampazzi and Sergio Vila table

‘Unique creations informed by a spirit of exclusiveness and anti-conformity’. That’s how Carlo Rampazzi and Sergio Villa describe their distinctive furniture. If pressed, even if very gently pressed, we would describe it as ‘luxury fun’. It is one of the lines we are looking forward to seeing in Milan this month. When did we last get a chance to show you a table with a leopard skin design on the top, long tapered skinny legs and , apparently, dogs for feet. You have to love this. Table Cigogne from the Multiples Récupluxe collection is bizarre, witty and just the right side of grotesque.

A couple more skinny legs paired with a drum like cabinet full of drawers make this a desk unlike any we have ever seen. This is the very antithesis of that po faced, very serious Northern European stripped pine that used to inhabit all of our home offices. There is nothing even vaguely utilitarian about the furniture from Rampazzi and Villa.

Light Carlo Rampazzi and Sergio Vila Rosa Rosae is a standard light which appears to be a skinny little tree with an extravagant jaunty shade which wears its feather boa with pride. If this light shade was a woman she would be a glamorous Grande Dame, slightly top heavy but irresistibly entertaining. If it were a man, it would be….? Well, it would probably be Elton John. Sorry Elton (again.)

cabinet by Carlo Rampazzi and Sergio Vila This happens to us sometimes. We pick some furniture from a manufacturer, share it with you, get to the point where we are about to say ‘ and finally’ and then decide to squeeze in a couple more. And who could resist Lukumon from the Etruska collection. Is it the detail on the doors, the generous top or those great clunking feet?

And we could not resist including this chair. It is Turan from the same collection and reminds us of Mr.Tumnus in the “Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe”. So lets start a campaign against boring furniture. Go visit Rampazzi and Villa, and have fun!
