Roberto Giovannini has been nominated for the category ‘Best Product - Classic Sector’ with the ‘grandiose’ coffee table art.1402. A table of French inspiration, an authentic expression of the Neoclassic style of the late 1700s, better known as ‘Regency’.
The unique characteristics of the woodcarving - the spiralled legs are ornately decorated with laurel leaves and berries while the band supporting the tabletop is finely decorated with a repetition of small rosettes – and of the special Oro Antiquariato (Antique Gold) G081 finishing chosen for the personalisation of the French Louis 16th round coffee table, define its uniqueness and make it the ideal furnishing accessory for elegantly enhancing your living space, thus enabling you to enjoy moments of warm conviviality.
A table of sizeable dimensions where the natural beauty of the solid wood, carved and finished in gold leaf, embraces its precious marble top, giving life to an object capable of capturing the attention and becoming the focal point of the living space. The French Louis 16th coffee table reveals the particular attention paid to the finest details and perfectly expresses the binomial of beauty and functionality: in fact, it encompasses the proportions and the aesthetic standards of classical beauty, revisiting and exalting the traditional concept of coffee tables.
Roberto Giovannini, with the French, Louis 16th coffee table, has earned this important nomination for the 'Best Product - Classic' category thanks to his extraordinary ability to project and ‘recreate’ in the present day the authentic and unmistakable luxury of styles of the past, the luxury which retains its charm and which is still able to dictate the trends of home décor.
And so this nomination becomes an occasion for 'telling' Roberto Giovannini's story, a story of passion for woodwork and for old Tuscan artisan traditions, enriched by innovations, by new inspiration and by the constant search for new ideas. Roberto Giovannini interprets present day home décor which still has a wish for luxury and elegance in its purest form.
Today, just as in times past, all of Roberto Giovannini's creations are examples of superb artisan know-how, where precious and refined woodcarving is presented as a true art form.
