editor’s note

At first blush, many view Milan as the plain, industrious-looking cousin of such homes of historic grandeur as Rome and Florence. However, as the fashion and design hub of Italy, the city exhibits a quiet confidence in its role as trendsetter and tastemaker for the country. This quiet confidence comes to the fore during Milan Design Week, when hubs like Brera, Monte Napoleone and Zona Tortona house installations galore, and vast showrooms at the Salone del Mobile furniture and design show are filled with the latest collections. The week is always an exciting time for Tatler Homes editors across the region, providing the opportunity to meet designers in person and discover the stories and inspirations behind the collections that we now feature in the Milan Design Week edition of Treasure Trove…

Sitting Pretty Entering the Bottega Veneta Home store in the 18th-century Palazzo Gallarati Scotti on Via Borgospesso was a treat in itself, with the low-key entrance giving way to rooms with mile-high ceilings, arched walkways and splendid frescoes. The frescoes provided the perfect backdrop for the soft pastel hues in the 2018 collection. Aside from fresh items like the BV Tre—the brand’s first sofa with modular seating—the existing models, such as the Rudi armchairs, now come in new colours like antique rose, a gorgeous dusty pink. bottegaveneta.com Light as a Feather Forget unsightly bed frames. The new Kelly bed from Poliform, by Emmanuel Gallina, rocks a minimalist shape that is softened by being fully covered in fabric.

Some people think of monsters as fantasy creatures, others as happy, albeit misunderstood, cartoon characters or as handy embodiments of political issues. Lasvit harnessed all this in an installation titled Monster Cabaret during Milan Design Week in which it unveiled a collection of glassworks, some limited editions, by 17 designers inspired by the monster theme. Monster Cabaret was housed in Teatro Gerolamo, a cosy theatre for puppetry dating back to 1868 whose ornate interiors provided an interesting visual backdrop for the various interpretations of the word monster on display. Visitors were greeted by a tower of screens designed by Lasvit’s creative director, Maxim Velčovský. Titled The Independant—a portmanteau of the words independent and pendant—the installation featured 111 screens broadcasting various images. Velčovský was inspired by the street-corner pillars of yesteryear that featured…

reviving a masterpiece

Located in Shanghai’s prestigious Jing’an district is a grand, three-storey villa with a graceful beaux arts exterior and orange dome. Now known as Prada Rong Zhai, this Western-style garden villa has a rich history, one that’s peopled with opera singers, entrepreneurs, journalists, and one of China’s wealthiest and most powerful families in the 20th century. For the first half of the 1900s, it was the home of Yung Tsoong-King (Rong Zongjing) and his progeny. Yung was known as the “flour king of China” for his role in establishing flour mills all over the nation. He also built cotton mills and yarn factories. By 1936, given his involvement in sources of food and clothing, he estimated that he owned half of China. But Yung was also a philanthropist, founding schools, planting forests,…
