The Newent creations are the latest additions to the Bentley Home collection; synonymous with exquisite craft and innovation. The Newent sofa is the star of the collection, with an armchair, chair and bed available to match. The pieces can be either fully upholstered in the customer’s choice of leather or fabric, or with a veneered frame, which is hand-inlaid and positioned with a hot-vacuum membrane press. “We work very closely with our colleagues at Bentley Home to ensure the furniture we create embodies the exacting standard in design and manufacture we have in our cars”, said Chris Cooke, Head of Product Design, Bentley. “From the language and flow of the surfaces to the detailed execution of the veneering process, the ‘Newent’ range is a great example of what we do best, create luxury products for discerning customers”, he added.
Bentley Home seeks to inject the spirit of the modern British marque into its furniture designs, recognising that the classic must meet the contemporary. The lines and silhouettes of contemporary Bentley models are reflected within the furniture. Bentley said its manufacturing process fuses traditional craft with modern technology. In the making of the latest collection, the interspace created in its curved frame cannot be achieved through traditional furniture-making techniques; yet, the upholstering work can be traced back through decades, if not centuries, of design.
The Bentley Home collection has been interpreting the luxurious personality of the automobile brand since 2013. “Sporting a passion for technology, goods can be customised in the finishes that have made the British brand unique, from the most exquisite leathers to Calacatta and Valentine Grey marbles”, said Bentley.
