Tell us about the background of B&B Italia and how the Dallas Design District showroom came to be.
B&B Italia is an internationally renowned Italian Group leader in the high-end designer furniture industry. Founded in 1966, B&B Italia stands out for its representation of contemporary culture, innovation, and vision to create timeless products. The Dallas Design District showroom came to be as we saw there to be a strong opportunity in this eclectic, yet upscale market. The Dallas Design District is known for its diverse furniture showrooms and gallery spaces, which made it a natural fit.
What do you enjoy most about having a showroom in the Dallas Design District neighborhood?
The Dallas Design District is an important piece of Dallas’ cultural DNA that naturally draws in current clients, and clients who are discovering the B&B Italia brand, because of its strong reputation in this market.
What can visitors expect when they visit the B&B Italia showroom?
They can expect to be greeted by a talented design team with a showroom that’s been carefully curated to show a range of product offerings including B&B Italia, B&B Italia Outdoor, and Maxalto.
In your opinion, what sets B&B Italia apart from other local and national modern furniture design showrooms?
Our showrooms are each carefully designed specifically for each market. Our Dallas showroom carries different pieces than what our showroom in New York has on the floor, or what’s being displayed in Miami and beyond.
If you had to describe the B&B Italia style in one word, what would it be and why?
Unique. B&B Italia has a balanced and unmatchable blend of innovation, iconic design, and contemporary lifestyle to meet the evolving needs of the home.
Tell us about some of your favorite design trends, products, and/or collections for Spring 2022.
B&B Italia has been a pioneer in re-issuing some of our most iconic pieces over the years that have gone viral in the art, fashion, and design community. Most recently, we have re-issued Mario Bellini’s iconic Camaleonda sofa that was originally designed in the 1970s. We also are really excited about the Noonu, which is a brand-new sofa system designed by Antonio Citterio for B&B Italia. It is characterized by large dimensions and great flexibility. This also celebrates 15 years of design and innovation in the Outdoor category. Over the course of the past 15 years, the brand has worked with top international designers that have contributed to the creation of more than 40 collections, thus giving shape to a complete, eclectic range of bold and iconic pieces for the outside of the home.
