Boiserie and Artwork from Bellavista Collection: Popular with Customers, Turned Heads at iSaloni

Although Bellavista Collection is mostly known for its Italian luxury furniture, this brand also offers a wide range of items no properly furnished home can do without. The brand sells mirrors, lighting fixtures, boiserie and various decorative articles, such as sculptures and panel pictures, to name a few. 

You will find these decorative pieces on the company’s website, in HOME DÉCOR product category. One of the sub-categories is named BELLAVISTA DETAILS. It’s well worth browsing through this sub-category is a treasure trove for everyone who is looking for something special to add zest to their home.

For instance, if your walls are bare, you may want to get wall paneling to cover them and probably pictures as the finishing touch. In BELLAVISTA DETAILS, you’ll find three eye-catching panel pictures, which will easily blend in almost any interior. As for top-quality boiserie, it is waiting for you in a separate same-named product category. Just open it, and you’ll realize what makes Bellavista’s boiserie stand out.

 First, all Bellavista’s boiserie is made of natural materials, which means that these panels are eco-friendly. No plastics – only wood (ST. REGIS), combination of wood and fabric or leather, or wood, fabric, and metal details, which form a lovely pattern (like in ERACLE).

Second, they are extremely diverse but equally beautiful. You will surely find the variant that will harmonize with your doors, floors, and furniture.

Third, they are practical, customizable, and easy to install. Applying boiserie is a great way to hide various cables yet leaving them accessible for repair.

And, last but not least, prime-quality wall paneling from Bellavista Collection looks chic indeed.

Bellavista Panel Pictures at iSaloni

Wooden panel pictures also hit the taste of Bellavista’s customers. No wonder: ARTDECO, FLOWER and ROSE look like pieces of modern art rather than decorative items.

Visitors of prestigious trade exhibitions liked these pictures a lot, too.  From the very start of the brand Bellavista Collection has regularly participated in trade fairs. The biggest, the oldest, and the most recognized of them is Salone Internazionale del Mobile, or Milan Furniture Salon, often called iSaloni for short. Unfortunately, the 2019 edition was the last one held live… for the reason we all are well aware of. But nothing lasts forever, and industry professionals are already looking forward to the sixtieth edition of the Salone del Mobile, which is planned to take place in April 2022.

Let’s hark back to a few iSaloni editions of the past. 

FLOWER was designed and first showcased at iSaloni 2012, where it caught the fancy of numerous visitors. This magnificent picture, masterfully composed of pieces of wood (so that their edges form the lines), depicts two branches of a beautiful wild rose. This panel is pretty sizeable: 102 cm (40.2 in.) wide, 172 cm (67.7 in.) high, and 4,7 cm (1.9 in.) thick. The material chosen for this picture is solid wood, veneered with moka-stained walnut. Pieces of dark-colored wood rest on a rear support panel, made of plexiglas. Using the combination of wood and plexiglas proved a success; one more panel picture in a similar style was created shortly after and named ROSE.

ROSE turned heads at iSaloni 2014, 2015, and 2019. It is also made of natural solid wood, veneered with either moka stained walnut or carbone larch. The latter option was added in 2019. Like in FLOWER, ROSE’s rear support is made of plexiglas. ROSE depicts a rose flower as seen from above; the picture looks equally good with or without the frame, so the frame with chrome finish is optional. What makes this panel picture special is its central detail, made of laser-cut brass with an antique bronze finish. As for dimensions, ROSE is pretty large: 160 centimeters (63 inches) high, 120 centimeters (47.2 inches) wide and 4 centimeters (1.6 inches) thick. 

Along with many other showpieces, iSaloni 2016 featured ARTECO – a beautiful hand-carved panel picture, depicting a beautiful woman. Its white matte lacquered surface perfectly harmonizes with dark wooden frame, veneered in moka stained oak. ARTDECO will be a good pick for a large room, because this picture itself is quite big: 171.5 x 116 cm (67.5 x 45.7 in), and 6.6 (2.6 in.) thick.

The Right Frame for Remarkable Paintings

If you prefer classic oil paintings, you want to have a proper frame for each one. So, Bellavista Collection offers a picture frame among its products. 

Named simply FRAME, it’s made of natural solid wood with three veneering options available: natural, moka stained, and dark stained American walnut. A combination of wood and shining chrome details looks stylish indeed. This gorgeous frame will be an excellent choice for you if you like huge pictures.  FRAME itself is really large: 149 x 180 cm. (55.1 x 70.9 in.) and 13 cm. (5.1. in.) thick. Since the brand doesn’t sell paintings, you can have a plain mirror inserted into FRAME as an option.   So, it will serve you as a mirror until you buy a painting somewhere else.

The Unity of Art and Design

 However, Bellavista Collection is planning to fill this gap and start offering paintings by a famous Italian figurative painter Antonio Sgarbossa. His distinctive style is easily recognizable. This artist creates impressive paintings, which deserve to be hung in homes and galleries all over the world. And they actually are: Antonio Sgarbossa is a prolific artist, who has been known as a painter since the 1970s.

Attilio Zanni, Bellavista’s co-founder and chief designer, who has designed most of the pieces you can see on the brand’s website, met Antonio Sgarbossa decades ago. Since then, both creators have been good friends and co-operated from time to time. Here is just one example. Bellavista Collection showcased its FRAME at several editions of iSaloni – namely, in 2012, 2017, 2018, and 2019. And each time the paintings in this frame were created by Antonio Sgarbossa.

It seems that Attilio Zanni and Antonio Sgarbossa have the same sense of beauty and harmony, so we can expect more interesting joint projects from them in the future.
