Amazing Design Project by Rafael de Cardénas Featuring Boca do Lobo
Located in the city of Design, London, Rafael De Cárdenas elevated his design project to the next level with Glebe Place Residence, by mixing novel styles, gathering together such dissimilar traditional Portuguese pieces and modern design. Today Modern Dining Tables is here to give a sneak peek on this marvellous project.
We must start of course by speaking about the dining area. This dining area design is filled with a gigantic cream marble dining table and large upholster chairs which gives the possibility to the room, to be more than a dining space. It can perfectly be a place to have an informal meeting with closest professionals or business partners. The blossom rose wallpaper gives life to the walls and color to the room delighted with classic hue and textures like beige, old greys, and dark woods.
The D. Manuel Cabinet by exclusive brand Boca do Lobo was chosen strategically to expand the space and cut the contemporary design of the rest of the pieces in the design project. The cabinet surface has a copper leaf finish, with a sophisticated black lacquer gradient applied on the outside. Its legs are made from solid mahogany and are crafted to a traditional and handmade form, finished in high gloss black lacquer.
A restrained palette of Portland limestone, hardwood, and natural materials is punctuated by vibrant accents of turquoise, fuchsia, brass, and deep purple furnishings from modern European and American designers.
Manueline Style is the sumptuous, composite Portuguese style of architectural ornamentation, incorporating maritime elements and representations of the discoveries brought from the voyages of Vasco da Gama and Pedro Álvares Cabral, two of the most renamed discoverers in Portugal history. With that in mind, this interior design was though to get a coastal and antique look, as an homage to the portuguese discoveries.
Each of the rooms has its own style and classical touch. With a mix of many elements from the classical ones just like the D. Manuel Cabinet to the contemporary ones, Rafael has created the perfect image of a masterpiece of design.
