Few London interiors stores exhibit the pzazz of B&B Italia; if you’ve ever fancied yourself as a catwalk model, the long runway that guides you into the cavernous showroom offers plenty of opportunity to try out a few moves. B&B’s sleek furniture is displayed in classic room-sets that are bigger than most London flats. Over its 40 years, the Italian brand has maintained a strong interest in working with inventive designers – 2008 saw new versions of Patricia Urquiola’s Back and Lazy 100 chairs, and a raft of additions to Antonio Citterio’s Maxalto range, including a new thermo-treated ash wood variant to the Apta collection of storage units, tables and bookcases. Alongside these traditionally proportioned pieces are more sculptural forms – Jean-Marie Massaud’s Terminal 1 Daybed, for example, is a great example of a contemporary chaise longue.
