Quick Hits Boston: A Look Inside Molteni&C’s Haute New Space

Style, sophistication and sleek lines are what the Molteni&C name is all about, so it’s no surprise they wanted to show off their exclusive Italian furnishings in a haute new modern space within the SoWa Art + Design District (450 Harrison Avenue).

The flagship contemporary store that opened the doors to its new space last week now features the exclusive Dada Kitchens (another brand in the Molteni Group). From home and wardrobe to living room, kitchen, bedroom and study/home office, here you will find designers like Gio Ponti, Patricia Urquiola, Jean Nouvel, and Rodolfo Dordoni.

“The showroom reopened up a level from where we previously were,” said owner Zhanna Drogobetsky. “Now we are on the street level in a space with higher ceilings where we can showcase our closet systems in full height. They used to be custom cut to fit the showroom. Here, we have five different closet systems complete with glass and wood drawers and LED lighting. We also have all varieties of door systems, including the new invisible doors. We have also collaborated with a gallery near us so we have some really cool artwork to complement the showroom.”

The 1,000 square foot space showcases individual furniture pieces and functional modular systems for the simple elegant home. A section of the showroom is dedicated to Molteni&C’s wardrobes and walk-in closets, highlighting the Gliss Master series. In the living section are the Paul sofa and Jan coffee table as well as selections from the Molteni&C Heritage Collection. Architectural pieces like the Arc dining and Vicino coffee tables designed by Foster & Partners can be seen throughout the space as well.

“One of the more popular items is the 505 wall system that is completely LED lit,” Drogobetsky added. “We also have a brand new sectional (Paul) that we have added to our collection. It has clean lines without compromising comfort, which is the first priority for our customers, who understand fine Italian design. We offer three sofas in the showroom along with Dada kitchens that we incorporate with Miele and Subzero appliances integrated with high lacquer paneling and counter tops that come from Italy. The kitchens are designed for an average size Bostonian apartment. We are waiting for a ceiling hung shelving system with LED lighting that will be a great solution for anyone looking for extra storage.”

Capturing local interior design trends, the boutique highlights personalized closet solutions, nesting tables, and sectionals with textured fabrics. The entire Dada kitchens line is available through the store and the particular design featured at the Boston boutique is Hi-Line 6 by Ferruccio Laviani, with merope silestone countertops and dark elm wall units.
