Pitch black and designed to inspire, this space is a perfect example of making this bold look work. The most efficient way to balance out black maximalism is with natural light, and the large windows here ensure there’s a steady flow of light to give life to the space.

The fireplace is also a beautiful juxtaposition between light and dark as well, being both functional and a gorgeous facet of the design.

A slightly brighter alternative, this kitchen manages to be both edgy and open at the same time. The matte black cabinets and island bench correspond beautifully with the Scandinavian grey and white features, and the plants add natural colour to the palette.

Mixing natural light with fresh greenery is the key to success here, taking the look to the light side.

Renovations Celebration

image

What better way to show off a renovation than with a celebration? To commemorate our recently refurbished Brisbane Showroom, we invited a select group of local journalists, interior designers and architects for an exclusive walk-through of our new space.

For a special reveal of our Showroom, we asked Brisbane-based media and industry professionals to view the new space, as well as check out our extensive array of ILVE products on display.

As well as showing off our new look, our guests were also treated to a retelling of ILVE’s history as a brand. Queensland’s State Manager, Mark Tebbutt, was on-hand to answer questions with his expert knowledge of all things ILVE, and he certainly didn’t disappoint.

To top off the afternoon, attendees were also treated to a product demonstration in the Showroom’s working kitchen. Our in-house home economist Steve Marsh whipped up lunch in an ILVE oven, serving up a delicious spread of roasted meats, salads, fresh seafood, hearty pasta, sweet desserts and plenty of wine.

The fun had to end sometime though, and to make the afternoon even sweeter, our guests were gifted with ILVE goodie bags, with extensive product information and a DVD featuring recipes by Giovanni Pilu.

With a walk-through this fun, we think we should renovate our showrooms more often!
