With a history dating back to 1952, and operations that have in the years since spread all over the world, it presumably would have been easy for Italian interior design brand Novamobili to move their production offshore as many of their contemporaries have done.
But such is their commitment to offering a 100% Italian-made range of contemporary furniture pieces that even the leather used to create their sleek sofa designs comes for Italian-bred cows – sourced from the same factory that supplies Prada, no less.
Known for their quietly elegant, modern designs, as well as the clever functionality features hidden within most pieces, Novamobili’s style has certainly proven a winning one in Asia. This past March, the brand celebrated the opening of its seventh Asian showroom, Manila’s first, located in Bonifacio Global City, and local interiors aficionados can expect to find the entire range of chic beds, cabinets, shelving, tables, chairs, sofas and more in a smouldering palette of charcoals, rich browns, cream and slate, with pops of this season’s neon yellow and teal.
And if the quality and integrity of the craftsmanship weren’t enough to tug at your purse strings, Novamobili has long advocated as well as been recognised for environmentally-friendly manufacturing techniques, so pieces are green as well as gorgeous. Fab!
