design

interior design by Pietro Carlo Pellegrini This classic contemporary interior design by Pietro Carlo Pellegrini brings new life (and love!) to an old attic of a historic building located in Lucca, Italy. An urban-style living room is occupied by two chic sofas – a regal blue “Mex Cube Sofa” by designer Piero Lissoni and the crisp, white Philippe Starck “Private” sofa – facing the piece de resistance, a black Bisazza mosaic wall dubbed Napoleon, designed by Carlo Dal Bianco. (Love the white Cactus sculpture by Gufram!) Light oak floors and an exposed-beam white-painted ceiling lend the space a Nordic style. Through deceivingly small windows, natural light filters through gauzy white curtains and floods this large space. The kitchen is enclosed behind an ultra-modern folding glass wall. White cabinets line the remaining walls and at the center, a black table-style island provides prep space, a cooktop and eating area. An intriguing blue-lit hallway leads you from the living and dining areas to the bedrooms. The master suite is a dreamy space furnished with a cool, white LIPL bed by Jean Marie Massaud and Cloud end tables by Piero Lissoni. The ensuite bathroom, also a black Bisazza masterpiece, is accessorized by an unusual mirror hovering over a chic Bull stone sink by Antonio Luppi.(o)
