Chelsea becomes fourth flagship store for De Padova
De Padova has opened its first UK showroom, in Chelsea.
The 3,336sqft Draycott Avenue store occupies the first floor of a modern four-story building redesigned by British architect David Chipperfield, and is styled as a penthouse-style contemporary living space with large windows and white walls.
It is the Italian company’s fourth company owned stand-alone showroom.
‘We have found an extraordinary space for De Padova in the heart of Chelsea. A far cry from the traditional furniture shop, it is an exceptional loft space that fully showcases our complete interior design offering. The showroom’s close proximity to Boffi Chelsea enables us to provide the best design solutions for all our clients, whether for De Padova, Boffi, MA/U studio and now, ADL,’ says Roberto Gavazzi, Boffi Group ceo.
‘London is not just a European capital, but a capital of the world. After Milan, Paris and New York, the next De Padova opening could only be in another of the world’s major cities,’ says designer Piero Lissoni.
