A note about the collections:
The Fifties Collection pays homage to the utopian design revolution in mid-20th century Italy. It plays with texture: combining natural elements like leaf vein and rattan, with sleek, smooth glass and metal. Think cheerful colors, foam padding, eco-leather and brass legs: the quintessential elements of the 1950s post-modernist boom but reimagined to fit into a contemporary home. Perfect for retro-design nerds who appreciate a sense of fun.
Inspired by the perfect curve of a bow, The Bowie Collection is rooted in elegance, comfort and versatility. At its core is leather, which wraps itself around soft sofas, beds and lounge chairs to bring warmth and subtle luxury to any room. The combination of modern fluid contours and classic marble, wood and leather is what makes this collection timeless. Add a soft color palette with pops of blue, and you have a collection that will capture your senses.
The Nelson Collection captures Danish modern with minimalist accents: ideal for the person who has one foot in classical design, and the other in playful, and minimalist modernity. Warm wood, glass and leather bring in a sense of comfort, while metal and marble accents add a tasteful touch of glamour. The end result is a set of pieces that exude a quiet richness that will never go out of style. The ideal collection for anyone who appreciates an innovative take on old-school cool.
The Harper Collection is an earth-toned set of pieces that place comfort at the core of its design. Merging terrace, natural soft walnut and light-coloured fabric along with metal accents, Harper creates an environment that feels natural and elegant. The star of this collection is the bed: conceived as an independent space in itself, the padded headboard comes with side flaps, creating your own private sanctuary.
Functional and elegantly designed: that’s Sparks in a nutshell. The collection combines solid wood, lush velvet, eco-leather and stone, with organic curves and edges. The result is a set of innovative and immaculately built pieces, including an elliptical dining table with a terrazzo turntable, the bed with a specially crafted curved headboard and the fluted solid wood drawer faces. Ideal for anyone who enjoys high-quality, creative design and understated luxury.
