The Munira collection consists of cabinetry, tables, upholstery, & lighting as in Francis Sultana’s past collections where bronze featured prominently, the designer has crafted a new texture which comes up in all of the pieces.
Cabinetry covered in parchment but not in the classical sense; to give a contemporary edge to the parchment it is in a high gloss that, paired with the chiselled wood and bronze, gives these pieces Francis Sultana’s signature tailored styling.
When I thought of a furniture house in the true French style, my inspiration should be that of the late 40s and 50s Paris style, even with a hint of the “style Afrique” as they called it in Paris. With the upholstered pieces for the presentation I have mixed classical linen with hand woven African-inspired patterns.
The pieces echo the elegance of the 1920s yet inspires memories of the 40s and 50s French styling. Francis Sultana’s has created a truly sophisticated collection for Marc de Berny
