Recently at colourliving’s 20,000 square feet showroom, the first Fendi Casa Ambiente Cucina kitchen collection was launched. Part of the event included live cooking demonstrations by celebrity chefs Christian Yang and Master Kuen, who showcased the sophisticated designs of the kitchen units in use.
Designed to blend seamlessly into the home environment, the Fendi Casa Ambiente Cucina is characterised by shining glass and lacquer with precious compositions of natural stone. The design also incorporates touches of premium leather – a signature of the Italian fashion house.
“… Created using the finest materials, Fendi Casa brings its prestigious furniture and timeless design into the kitchen – the heart of the home. At colourliving, we help home owners to choreograph a discerning lifestyle through the finest, most beautiful and highly functional components for the home. As a constant source of innovation and style, we are proud to partner with Fendi Casa to achieve the perfect balance between function and luxurious aesthetics for any home,” shares Denise Lau, executive director of colourliving.
The focus of the collection was to create luxurious and bespoke pieces where each kitchen design is completely customisable to suit the taste of individuals and any high-end residence.
Homeowners can tailor their own delicate door handles, drawer interiors, worktop appliances and even materials: polished ebony macassar wood, wax-finished eucalyptus doors, mother-of-pearl gloss lacquer or fine embossed-leather in crocodile, galuchat and iguana finishes.
Colourliving itself possesses two bespoke Fendi Casa Ambiente Cucina collection, which is showcased in its flagship in Wan Chai. For example, its Fendi Casa Ambiente Cucina Villa Livia, comprises island and storage units in a rich brown colour scheme. It was also created using mocha crocodile embossed leather, ebony wood panels, a glossy lacquer frame and stone countertops.
