When a professional couple moved into this bright two-bedroom condo overlooking Victoria’s working harbour, they discovered new furniture was essential when their existing furnishings seemed too visually heavy in the airy space. Shopping local for contemporary pieces that were au courant, the couple turned to StudioYdesign for furniture that would create design cohesion while maintaining the condo’s open feel. “We wanted high-quality furniture with clean lines and knew StudioYdesign offered European designs that would fit with our style,” states the homeowner.
Alykhan Sunderji from StudioYdesign adds that “we furnished the majority of their condo while keeping in mind a cohesive transition from room to room. Italian-designed Calligaris furniture was the right fit for the couple’s vision for a clean, unobstructed, yet functional space that would suit their busy lifestyle.” Defined by quality, pared down forms and comfort, Calligaris pieces offer a visual lightness that reflects the condo’s contemporary architectural style.
The Taylor modular sofa from Calligaris features tailored details manifested in the visible edge trim with cross stitching. The generous soft seat and back cushions in mixed down offer an unparalleled comfort without forgoing elegance. The frame consists of a visually slim yet strong base with aluminum feet. The warm gray of the Italian-made leather Leandra Chair from Bracci grounds the space and invites guests to get comfortable.
Calligaris’s Omnia dining table boasts a warm wooden frame with legs at the corners to comfortably accommodate eight guests. The large rectangular top, available in wood or tempered glass, is raised an inch off the structure giving the table a light and spacious feel. White leather New York Dining Chairs from Calligaris are a modern pairing with the wood table and elevate the room’s elegance. An enveloping backrest and wide seat offer a comfortable chair for extended dinner parties while shock-proof feet in transparent rubber are delicately placed under the chair’s cantilevered base.
The Mag Wood sideboard with two doors and three central drawers adds storage while the walnut veneer adds warmth to the open space. The sideboard’s linear design maintains the home’s contemporary aesthetic while glass shelves on the inside boost its functionality. The couple’s eclectic art collection adds personal panache and splashes of colour to the subdued palette.
The Taylor Bed from Calligaris features a divided upholstered headboard with a removable cover and is ideal for sitting up in bed reading or watching television. Wooden slats for support and comfort, the Taylor is the epitome of elegance and comfort. The York nightstands from Calligaris feature sturdy wood construction with a more traditional sophistication. The Shanghai Chair from Natuzzi Italia in light gray completes the space.
Italian designed and built, the wood veneer Balance bed by Calligaris brings a calmness to this natural light-filled bedroom with its curved headboard and warm wooden frame. The two drawer Jersey nightstand by Calligaris offers a glass top and sleek form.
