The elegant living room is home to the versatile Ferdinand sofa, accompanied by Callas armchairs and Gabriel side tables. Yet it is the original Kathy sofa that really stands out, evoking the curved lines of the Lucille collection, with an added focus on comfort and modern aesthetics. It is a model in which balanced proportions and organic lines coexist happily.
Another brand-new piece is the Brian by Opera Contemporary side table, whose bold personality is enhanced by the brass finish on the structure, combined with the stunning marble top with rounded-off edges. There is stunning attention to detail here too – the central leg, for example, bursts through the marble top to become a decorative element in its own right.
Two graceful armchairs with wooden bases and cosy padded cushioning complete the living room.
The dining room features the Oriental-inspired Wendy table, which provides the perfect setting for all those carefree social occasions. The round table top in marble rests on three arched metal legs, which end at the base with spherical feet in the same material. Meanwhile, the Gabriel console table maintains the vibrant contrast of materials running throughout the entire line, while the two sections of the cylindrical structure spread apart to provide a better view of the space between. The Esther mirrors re-evoke the combination of marble and metal already seen in the Cyrano side table, creating a piece oozing with truly unique charm. Also present are the Victor dresser, Sophie armchair and Pelleas side table in the extra-luxury version (whose metallic finish conceals the wooden structure of the piece).
At the centre of the new living area concept is the Cosmo sofa, a sophisticated yet inviting piece of understated proportions. Elegant diamond-patterned quilting adorns the outside of the backrest, which wraps round the comfy seat cushions atop a metal structure glinting with gold. To ensure its clients have scope to personalise their pieces, Opera Contemporary is also available in a modular version with matching armchairs. The result is a truly sophisticated lounge featuring a number of other elegant accessory pieces, such as the Cyrano coffee table and the Brian, Margot, Gabriel and Raoul side tables.
Making its debut in the bedroom is Dorothy, a bed whose modern design is based around a simple, refined style and draws inspiration from the brand’s best-selling Butterfly bed. This rigorous yet light touch can be seen right from the headboard – padded and adorned with subtle stitching that creates carefully calculated geometric effects – to the base, with its linear design, and even the metal feet, light and dynamic. The Gyselle mirror is a luxurious gem, its minimalist lines creating a modern, brass-finished frame which brings added definition to the oval shape. The Fritz pouf has been given a makeover and appears here in its new guise as a bench, featuring cosy padding and elegant capitonnè detailing.
The defining feature of the final living area is the perfectly symmetry of the round Raoul coffee table, Ludmilla side tables and delicate Sophie armchairs. The Mascha screen, meanwhile, adds a touch of glamour to the space.
The corner version of the Ferdinand sofa provides the perfect foil for the compact Ivonne sofa, which combines inviting, rounded shaping with capitonnè detailing on the backrest.
Fresh from stunning results in the Asian market, Opera Contemporary will inaugurate two new stores in the heart of China – in Shanghai and Hangzhou the next month. The move represents further confirmation of the company’s strategy to consolidate and boost the profile of its brand, which is synonymous with exceptional quality and contemporary appeal across solutions designed to meet the needs of a demanding client base.
