At Maison et Objet 2018, Fendi Casa presented a furnishing project with a contemporary design, both elegant and cosmopolitan, a perfect balance between tradition and innovation. The high quality of the materials and the excellence of craftsmanship reflect a functional inclination based on the highest standards of luxury.
Inspired by modern typically-Italian homes, the Collection defines sophisticated spaces where upholstery, furniture and accessories celebrate the expressive codes of the Roman Maison. The exhibition space at Maison et Objet 2018 displays a refined and convivial atmosphere: walls covered in marbles, such as Travertine, Calacatta and Rosso Lepanto, alternated with exquisite wallpaper and wooden surfaces.
Graphic structures and soft volumes are enhanced by a palette of neutral colours and by delicate lacquering. Moderate mixes of colours reveal the careful use of tones through powdery shades that create continuity: ivory, quartz grey, dove grey but also lake blue and various shades of brown. Soft, high-performance fabrics emphasize the comfort of the seats as a tribute to FENDI’s sartorial tradition.
The rich cotton velvets with three-dimensional patterns are reminiscent of technical fabrics. The soft, exquisite and highly tactile chenille is presented in forms that reflect the upholstery contemporary inclination. The new sofas stand out with their new and exclusive movements for the utmost relaxation and comfort.
The precious leathers are enhanced by grains and thicknesses that recall the consistency of the fabrics: high-quality gloss and semi-gloss finishes reflect the couture attitude of the Collection. The furnishing proposals are decorated with accessories in fox, marmot and orylag fur in natural and pastel hues, manufactured with inlays and volumes that are the expression of FENDI’s excellence in the art of fur. Here are constant references to metallic tones in the structures finely matched with surfaces in marble or in Macassar Ebony and Dark Rosewood. Through the glass with lacquered back there is an encounter with the plating with Bronze Shadow and Gun Metal finishes and the light tones of the tops. This is what Maison et Objet 2018 showed at Maison et Objet 2018.

The collection of Abbraccio sofas is available with leather or fabric upholstery and in two- or three-seater versions.
MONTGOMERY EMBRACE SOFA – Montgomery is a sofa characterized by a linear geometry and squared shapes.
