Lust List: The Bentley Home Furniture Collection For Every Luxury Home
It was almost a century ago when WO Bentley founded Bentley Motors with a vision “to build a fast car, a good car, the best in its class”. This remains at the heart of the marque till today. Every car that leaves its factory in the outskirts of Crewe in Cheshire, England is exquisite in its craftsmanship and innovative in its design—the very qualities that have endeared Bentley to car enthusiasts around the globe.
This dedication to design using modern materials also extends to the luxury automotive manufacture’s Bentley Home brand, which recently released a new limited‑edition collection of furniture in celebration of its centenary. Created by Bentley Design, the marque’s creative luxury arm, the capsule collection, launched at Milan’s Salone del Mobile furniture fair in April, comprises a desk, an armchair and a matching footstool to elevate the living quarters of Bentley buffs.

Inspired by the design that characterises the Bentley car interior, and in a nod to its age-old commitment to fine woodcraft, the armchair and footstool are enveloped in plush diamond‑quilted leather, while the dark stained oak of each piece of furniture is brushed with liquid gold and its metal frames crafted from gold-plated iron.
To mark the collection’s exclusivity, each piece also has the brand’s centenary logo etched into the metalwork on the side. Made with distinct architectural precision, the Bentley Home centenary collection exemplifies the brand’s ability to incorporate functionality with style, crafted to suit the taste of the discerning Bentley enthusiast.
