The 900-square-metre space spans three floors and is dominated by a sculptural helical staircase that twists up through the showroom.

Sheet metal covers the staircase, underscoring the industrial aesthetic of the retail space, which features anthracite-grey walls and expansive windows.

Boffi, which acquired Italian furniture makers De Padova in 2015, has long been associated with London.

The high-end kitchens and bathroom design brand opened its first showroom in the city on Brompton Road 15 years ago. Boffi opened its Wigmore showroom in London's West End in 2011. Now Boffi De Padova has its own dedicated presence in Chelsea.

"The importance of London in the design panorama has encouraged the expansion of our space in one of the prime neighbourhoods of the city," said Gavazzi.

Boffi opened its New York showroom in the city's Soho district in 2018, occupying the third floor of a historic building on the corner of Greene Street.

Visit the showroom at 72-74 Sloane Avenue, London, and head to the company's website for more information.
