Vanilla Noir Collection
Scarlet Splendour Friday 10 Apr 2015

Scarlet Splendour is a brand new furniture and lighting brand based in India and featuring designs by Italian designer Matteo Cibic. This is the first time the brand has showcased at Milan Design Week and one of the ranges they will be featuring is the ‘Vanilla Noir’ collection.

This furniture collection is based on traditional Indian handicraft of bone and horn inlay but modernised with the contemporary fusion of modern polymers and pigments. Each piece is handcrafted in India using traditional methods of inlay work. This range of furniture is reminiscent of the silent era with just a hint of Lynchian drama.

The classic movie feel lends itself to the naming of the products with the ‘Metropolis’ table and the ‘Monsieur Verdoux’ cabinet; finely finished to hold a full bar. The fusion of Indian craftsmanship and tradition with classic Hollywood style and Italian sensibility ensure that Scarlet Splendour will make an excellent first impression during Milan Design Week.
