Picture a room. A blank space, four walls, white paint. It could be absolutely anything… an art exhibition, your bedroom, a show room… all these things begin the same – they’re all just a room. The only thing that changes is the way you decorate it. The things we choose to surround ourselves with are an expression of self, they say so much about who we are and what we value. How exciting then, to discover a range of interior design so incredibly luxurious and exclusive that arranging them in our home feels as much like an expression of ourselves as an expression of the exclusive brand that has created them. We are talking of course about Boca Do Lobo. The utterly ravishing interior company straight from Portugal.
Boca Do Lobo is all about the feeling and emotion behind its furniture. It is more than just an ergonomic chest of drawers… it should provoke a feeling, it should have about it the same warmth and love that was carved into it by Boca Do Loo’s bespoke crafts people. Each piece is so individual and so bespoke that they are a piece of art in their own right. Of its furniture, Boca Do Lobo had this to say… ‘BOCA DO LOBO furniture is an exclusive emotional experience, a sense of belonging and a state of mind. We strive to encourage sensational experiences by creating beautiful pieces which are passionately inspired and handcrafted in Portugal by a staff that loves what they do; experiences which pass on the feeling of exclusivity. Our designers possess an undeniable talent for composing pieces which stir emotion in their admirers.’
This is a place where the line between art and design is blurred. It may look like a cupboard but it also wouldn’t look out of place on a pedestal in the Victoria and Albert Museum as a piece of historic importance, it wouldn’t look out of place tipped on its side in the Tate Modern or maybe suspended from the ceiling in the Saatchi Gallery. These are things of complete beauty in and of themselves. Take for instance, the Heritage Sideboard by Boca Do Lobo… in a striking classical blue and white this asymmetrical cupboard is awash with hand painted tiles in the traditional Portuguese style. As the Arcadian faces gaze from their cool glassey canvas you’ll notice that it opens up to reveal a gold and mirror interior with three perfectly proportioned shelves. You couldn’t hope to find a more striking piece, whether you are looking for your living room or even your exhibition!
What do Damien Hurst, Grayson Perry and Tracy Emin all have in common? They know exactly how to make a space their own! How to make it an expression of their thoughts and feelings. With its array of unusual and individual designs Boca Do Lobo can help you to curate your own home into something inspirational that reveals important truths about you. With their unique Portuguese twist and absolutely majestic designs there is quite literally nothing not to like about these striking artisans. If you buy one thing for your home this year, Ad Astra Lifestyle Magazine recommends you make it a Boca Do Lobo.
‘Our artisans’ wisdom, accumulated from years of experience, is instilled with love and dedication in the art that they perform. No detail or element is overlooked as we offer the best at the frontier between design and art.’ Boca Do Lobo
