Home entertainment. The luxury of relaxation

The time spent at home, either alone or in company, can be a real pleasure, especially if the domestic scenario widens its horizons to embrace the latest proposals in terms of relaxation and entertainment.  The domestic habitat upgrades its level of conviviality in favour of new concepts which combine a taste for interior design and a desire for entertainment.  

First and foremost, the cocktail cabinet, a product now being widely revisited by manufacturers of both classical and design furniture (such as Minotti, Lema, Gallotti&Radice and Alivar). Once a must-have in any middle-class home, it has made a return to elegant living rooms, albeit more discretely, in a way that blends in with the furnishing context. Functional and super accessorized, the cocktail cabinet is a little gem of interior design, increasingly sought after by those wishing to treat themselves to moments of inebriating peace and quiet. Without forgetting its irresistible appeal during refined social gatherings.  In the most luxurious homes, it takes the form of an authentic corner complete with counter, high stools and all the comforts associated with a domestic bar. A space to which period style furniture producers have extensively dedicated their creative efforts (in this respect, Giorgio Collection, Bamax, Angelo Cappellini and Longhi come to mind).

The billiard table, equally reminiscent of a genteel past, is also enjoying a remarkable comeback, produced in refined and luxurious versions that are often contextualized in a wider project such as that of the Game room, possibly fitted out with poker tables (such as those offered by Vismara Design), lounge areas or, indeed, bar corners. These little leisure havens are being flanked by new and even more exclusive creations targeting cinema enthusiasts. We refer of course to Home Theatres (in which Vismara Design and Visionnaire reign supreme), combining technological and furnishing research to offer all the quality of an authentic cinema experience, but in far superior comfort.
