GUADARTE – Elegant (Hall 4) Stand C6/E5

Expect the unexpected. Since its foundation in the 80s, the talented GUADARTE has impressed crowds for its unique designs that draw inspirations from different sources: art, fashion, nature, exotic themes, traditions… These multiple inspirations have resulted in a sophisticated eclecticism that can be easily used to create very personalized atmospheres and settings: classic or contemporary, with all the intensity of baroque and the beauty of ancient Roman and Greek art or the stream-lined elegance of modern trends; warm and relaxed, as in a Southern hacienda; cosy and refined for the most glamorous interiors; and dramatic in the outdoors, where art and nature fuse in a very singular way…

CENTURY collection, GUADARTE: timeless refinement & glam


The CENTURY collection

Refined, glamorous, exquisitely crafted, fearless and perfectly adaptable to match your décor. These are the essential elements of CENTURY, the new collection of high-end furniture that subtly mixes contemporary and classic styles.


Right from the first glance, it’s easy to see that CENTURY furniture avoids the ordinary in favor of a more personal expression. The interior theme features plenty of contemporary furniture and lighting yet carries the ornamental hallmarks and handcrafted elements of the classic style. The result is fabulously unique with an overall style that exudes glamour without sacrificing comfort.

CENTURY dining room

High-gloss lacquers & bronze

The geometric patterns, the natural elements, such as steel, marble and glass, the precious fabrics and velvets, the mirrors, the Baroque-inspired ornaments and the use of contrasting colours, such as the neutrals with black matt lacquers, keep the scheme sophisticated and chic while adding an urban vibe to glam ambiences.

CENTURY sideboard

New pieces include mid-century inspired sofas and clean-lined armchairs, cabinets, coffee tables, dining tables and chairs, bookcases, mirrors, and eye-catching, classic-inspired chandeliers and wall light fixtures. They have all been crafted with great attention to detail in order to imbue every single object with a sense of luxury and individuality.

Neutral hues & black create a dramatic effect and add depth to ambiences

The mid-century inspired sofas and armchairs can be mixed and matched with a set of more classic armchairs and decorative elements accentuating the glam factor of the scheme. The dramatic crystal and bronze chandeliers, available in a wide choice of finishes, add an aura of romance and style to dining and living spaces.

The fusion of contemporay and calssic style accentuates the glam factor

Neutral colours can be used to keep the ambiences relaxed and warm or they can be combined with other hues to accentuate contrasts and add intrigue.

An amazing combination: classic busts & a contemporary cabinet
