Bentley Unveils New Furniture and Accessories Collection

So how do you like that backseat in the Bentley Mulsanne? What about the Flying Spur model? Nice and comfy, just like a real businessman, you cruise the city in style and great fashion. But wait, come back to reality and realize you only had the chance to feel it while visiting last year’s auto show, since there's no way can you afford buying the actual car. Well, instead of getting a luxury limousine, you could start with the new Bentley Home furniture collection.

The new collection just made its debut at the prestigious Maison & Objet fair in Paris, France, and is already getting our attention. Designed and manufactured in collaboration with Luxury Living Group, one of Europe’s leading furniture makers, the collection takes its inspiration from the world of travel, Bentley claims.

In the company’s press release you can consult below, the British carmaker is talking about a 1920s train station, twin paths that lead from the traditional to the modern and whatnot. But the point is that these pieces of furniture are supposed to offer a similar experience to what sitting inside a Bentley feels like.

Sofas, armchairs, consoles and beds, as well as accessories such as cigar boxes, photo frames and bases all express a strong aesthetic sensibility and exemplify the synthesis between design and beauty,” the auto manufacturer explains.

Created by architect Carlo Colombo, the colors span a palette of warm tones: pale brown, dark chocolate, brick, new praline shades. Nuances that range from quartz grey to Burgundy and from hazelnut to royal blue are also employed.

Moreover, according to Bentley, new handmade velvets have been made using looms that can accommodate traditional and complex work processes that produce fabrics unique in terms of quality and refinement. The range of new collection is quite diverse, such is the pallet of prices. The most expensive unit is the Winchester sofa which starts from EUR 13,000 ($14,750), while the cheapest thing you can buy is the Cliffden side table that will cost you EUR 4,000 ($4,538).

How was that James Brown song again, “Paid the cost to be the boss”...
