Meridiani Roadshow: Nature is home
MERIDIANI ROADSHOW AT SPAZIO SCHIATTI
The Roadshow “Nature is home” arrives in Brianza: Spazio Schiatti’s shop-showroom hosts the sixth stop of the travelling exhibition dedicated to design, which moulds around the materials and colours of nature. The inspiring topic is Forest, which involves a living and a dining area, where the nature creates material suggestions and animates the products with its colours like the green of the forest, and its materials like wood, marble, and natural fibres.
On this occasion we have interviewed Pierpaolo Schiatti, the owner of the space, with whom we talked about the present and the future of furniture design.
· What does it mean being a furniture retailer?
Our job is evolved during the years. From being simple furniture and accessories retailers, we transformed us by becoming a real design and architecture studio. Today the clients want not only buying furniture but getting a professional and complete consulting service. People does not only want an aesthetic project, but they aspire to a more comfortable and emotional living experience, which is what we try to offer to those who come to Spazio Schiatti. The clients can count on a team of experts and interior designers, who beyond the furniture and accessories sale, provide with a customised project consulting. From the start of the project to the choice of materials and living solutions up to the supervision of potential restoration works and the delivery: in our showroom all the details are perfectly arranged.
· How does the way of designing (and living) spaces change in the post-pandemic era?
It is totally changed because the way of living home is completely changed. For months we have spent our days at home, which has become a place for working, doing sport, and studying. When the habits and the needs of the people change, also the spaces transform. The house after Covid-pandemic is a new space where people can eat and sleep, but also have fun and work. There is a great attention to comfort, sustainability, an introduction of “green” elements in the finishing and furniture without forgetting the design. It is important to include natural elements in your own house starting from contemporary design furniture and accessories made up with high-tech materials. Wood and marble are welcomed as well as the transformation of outdoor spaces, like terraces and balconies, to be enjoyed all year long.
· Which are the 3 keywords of the design and customer service in an increasingly demanding and ever-changing world?
The first is customisation: the clients want a house which satisfies their style and space needs.
The second is quality: to create and furnish our clients’ houses we involve a wide range of excellent brands which stand out for their luxury furniture production, and we pay a particular attention to the most interesting design news of high quality.
The last is completeness: our service includes the design consulting, the products sale, the supervision and coordination of works, the delivery, and the assembly of every furniture. We guarantee a pre- and post-sale assistance service through inspection, product transportation and test.
COMPLETE THE SENTENCE: The Store of the future…
...I think it as a place where products, materials, technology, and skills will always be more integrated among themselves to express the potentialities of the interior design world at best.
We look forward to seeing you there:
