Italian Interior Design – Elegance and Style

Besides its exquisite cuisine, Italy is also well-known for its highly refined taste in architecture and interior design.

It’s a fact that when trying to furnish or decorate a space with the goal of making it as beautiful as possible, you can’t go wrong with Italian Design. For the better part of a century now, Italy has been seen as a trendsetter when it comes to interior design. However, this was not always the case.

From the start of the twentieth century, Italian design had a hard time standing out from the shadow of its French influences. Pieces from the 1910’s and 1920’s were elegant and extravagant, but they didn’t have enough in terms of originality to be identified as having a unique style or identity. Hence, they would often be relegated to the sidelines in favor of other, more novel designs.

Gio Ponti’s Influence

It wasn’t until Gio Ponti and Ettore Sottsass came along that Italian design starting branching out and gaining popularity across the world. Ponti was the pioneer of Italian furniture – he managed to successfully combine the existing elegance and style of his time with a modern and exotic touch. This style of manufacturing was later known as Razionalismo, or Rationalism. The most successful group who adopted the essence of rationalism was known as Gruppo 7, led by designers Luigi Figini, Gino Pollini and Giuseppe Terragni.

This style consisted of tubular steel and minimalistic design, which was a far cry from trends during that time. With the Second World War right around the corner, you could say that the style was a bit fascist, even. After the fall of the Third Reich, Italy bore witness to a revolution in their designs. With the fall of fascism, along with other important events such as the RIMA Exhibition of 1946, Italy proved to the world their considerable talents for interior and furniture design. The sustained economic growth that the country had between 1946 and 1960 also helped to boost the production of all these masterworks. Thus, Italy started becoming highly popular and began garnering critical acclaim in the world of design.

Modern Italian Design

Despite Italy’s advancement in interior design, the true breakthrough came in between the 1960s and 1970s. During this time, the industry adopted post-modernism and other popular trends into its style, and phrases like Bel Design and Linea Italiana started popping up everywhere: in flyers, pamphlets, and even right from the mouths of its famous designers. By the start of the 1980s, big design companies like Prada, Versace, Gucci, Moschino, and Armani started putting their brands on pieces of equipment. Some examples of these pieces include Zanussi’s washing machines and refrigerators, the New Tone sofas by Atrium, and the famous post-modern bookcase.

Italian design has had a bumpy road, to say the least. Nevertheless, it has been a road that has slowly but surely led them to worldwide-recognition. It is a trend that has been studied and refined to perfection, and everywhere on the internet you can find articles and papers about it. Nowadays, Italian-style architecture and design is a popular choice among those looking to give their home a unique, elegant, and exquisitely modern touch.
