The lava stone daybed

The daybed is the perfect piece of furniture for introducing the minimalist elegance of the gray volcanic stone. Therefore, the idea of a solid lava stone daybed has made us enthusiastic from the beginning to collaborate with the French designer Charlotte Juillard.

Our new creation, a sculpted daybed, is a made to measure design by Charlotte Juillard.
With Charlotte’s words, the inspiring idea has been: <<the will to highlight this little-known material has been the starting point of this project made of elegant and sober lines. >>
Minimalist and sophisticated, versatile, glamorous and functional (maybe the most glamorous of furnishing elements), for sure, the daybed is a very intriguing piece of furniture in a contemporary design project, that boasts solid cornerstones and an infinite number of thematic interpretations, with a series of details that make each piece unique.
With its strictly horizontal line and its adaptability, both as a central element in the living space and placed at an angle, the living daybed opens up all sorts of furniture layouts, while its ambivalence of sofa and extra spot for guests to sleep, makes the dormeuse a precious piece of furniture, evoking the opportunity to relax and unwind in your home, alone or with your guests.
All those features make the ‘day bed’ the perfect piece of furniture for introducing the minimalist elegance of gray volcanic stone.
Therefore, the idea of a solid lava stone daybed has made us enthusiastic from the beginning to collaborate with Charlotte Juillard.
The project by Charlotte Juillard associates the solid lava stone structure, extracted from the quarries around Vesuvius, and handcrafted by the workers of Ranieri Lava Stone, with the excellence of the Rubelli velvet craftsmanship for the seat and the cushion, while the support is forged in steel with a total black gloss finish.
Conceiving an object with essential lines, Juillard intends to exalt the preciousness of textures and colors: in fact, the material quality of the volcanic stone is intensely evoked by associating it with a feminine sensibility to the textures and colors of the textile.

With this project, Charlotte Juillard thrives to present this spectacular material through pure and geometrical shapes bringing forward colors and textures (Ranieri lava stone, black shiny metal, Rubelli’s velvet)

Above all, the volcanic surface is a multifaceted stone, and different materials and texture matching are possible, leading to a unique piece of design:

The lava stone structure is extracted from a block of gray volcanic rock then polished and embellished through pure and geometrical shapes:

This stylish piece of furniture beautifully represents our idea of luxury craftsmanship, custom design, handmade and Made in Italy, where the knowledge of the artisans of stone, handed down for centuries on our territory, finds new light and expression in a piece of overwhelmingly contemporary design.
