From exquisite drum shells to chic modern furniture.

Milan-based company Villa has been making wooden drum shells and hoops since the early ’60s. Now, the Italian brand has designed a furniture and home accessories collection that takes inspiration from the exploration of the acoustics of percussion instruments while also blending modern design and a minimal Nordic aesthetic. The Villa Home Collection features the company’s proprietary wood-bending technique combined with state-of-the-art technology. Carefully selected raw materials and traditional craftsmanship ensure the quality of the products, while the tasteful bentwood design sets them apart. Artistic concepts celebrate the beauty of simplicity via fluid and linear forms devoid of any superfluous detailing.

Elegant and refined, each product from the Villa Home Collection has a pure as well as restrained design. The range includes furniture, lighting, and accessories, all combining minimal good-looks and functionality. The magazine racks come in solitary or eye-catching modular designs, while the pendant lights and lamps create focal points on their own or as a group of wooden sculptures casting light throughout modern homes. A round coffee table references ’70s designs and also features practical hidden casters. A matching armchair boasts a bent beech wood tilted edge. It comes with plush cushions in colors that complement or contrast the light or dark finish of the wood frame.

Apart from the tables, seating and lighting, the collection also includes round boxes, trays, bookcases, and laundry baskets. All of the company’s bentwood design products are skillfully made in Italy on a smaller scale. This allows the brand to craft every piece to perfection and maintain the charming imperfections which give character to handmade products. Images courtesy of Villa.
