Gemstones set into jewellery were the starting point for Steve -- a series of upholstered poufs for Luca Nichetto’s eponymous furniture collection for De La Espada. The Steve poufs feature short cast iron legs that support visible wooden structures crowned with upholstery, and are available in two sizes. Perfect as a stand alone piece, Steve can also complement the Blanche, Stanley and Elysia chairs. It continues the aim of the Nichetto Collection to combine heritage styling with contemporary design. 

Nino is an ottoman that shares the stylistic principles of the Elysia Lounge Chair, while also complementing the other items in the Nichetto collection. Its solid wood legs showcase its fine material and craftsmanship, while its fusion of wood and upholstered materials is inspired by mid-century design. 

Laurel coffee table is composed of two pure geometric shapes, cone and cylinder, intersecting to create two wide and functional surfaces, distributed at different levels. In keeping with the other elements of the collection, the ratio of the materials used is 50/50, in this case painted hdf for the cone, that appears to balance weightlessly upon the cylindrical marble base.

The perfect synthesis of superior woodwork and fine tailoring is revealed in Elysia. The lounge chair has a solid wood leg construction that cradles the padded shell of the seat and the backrest. The “skeleton”, traditionally hidden inside the upholstery, is deliberately exposed to showcase the craftsmanship and premium timber. The exceptional comfort Elysia offers is visually communicated through the padding enveloping the shell, and the generous folds of fabric on the cushion.
