Tuscan hospitality

A dream cottage in the countryside

A weekend with family or friends in the Tuscan countryside, lulled by the beauty of the landscape, pampered by shared lunches and dinners: if we had to imagine the ideal setting for this escape from the city, a farmhouse with an authentic, relaxed atmosphere would be the perfect choice.
Country style for a kitchen designed as a domestic hearth, resulting from a renovation project that sought to maintain the original floor, the wooden beams and the exposed bricks: a kitchen that is loved and lived in, in which implements and everyday objects are displayed on shelves to be ready for use and not hidden inside cabinets or drawers.

Household appliances also play a major role, not only in terms of performance. The Nostalgie collection by Ilve is perhaps one of the most iconic thanks to its bold and distinctive aesthetics, played out in the details, finishes, silhouettes and colour palette: there is a clear contrast between the industrial chic style of the fridge, oven, hood and range cooker and a deliberately bare and rugged room, with workshop furnishings such as the wooden table and materials such as stone and brick. A choice that makes this everyday space even more authentic, striking a new balance between a traditional country kitchen and an original, refined design.

The configuration chosen for the 150 cm range cooker, an irreplaceable piece of equipment for catering for all the farmhouse guests, includes a hob with 7 cooking zones, fry top and coup de feu griddle: a decidedly professional version with accessories designed for high level cuisine. The matching hood with optional Noblesse profiles highlights the retro flavour of this place devoted to relaxing and sharing meals. The colour of the side-by-side refrigerator, at once imposing and essential, matches the range and hood.

Harmony is the key factor in this environment that is immediately familiar and cosy, while investing in state-of-the-art technology: the concept of hospitality is interpreted by drawing on tradition with a new, not at all trivial take on established aesthetic and stylistic codes.
