Belmond Villa Margherita
Reading the Room
An Amalfi Hideaway
A secluded sanctuary overlooking the Amalfi Coast, Belmond Villa Margherita is brimming with storied furnishings and hidden details. Eric Egan, interior designer, reveals some of his favourites from the residence’s living room.
Adding a sense of stately elegance, these 18th-century Neapolitan chairs are a timeless treasure. To add to the luxury they are upholstered in vintage Fortuny fabric from the 60’s. Throughout the villa you’ll find other vintage textiles from British and French fabric makers including Colefax and Fowler, and Braquenié.
Each room in Belmond Villa Margherita boasts custom, hand-painted trompe-l’oeil ceilings by L’Artigianato, boutique designers based in Milan. They depict different scenes of the Amalfi Coast; in this case, the famous lemon groves. The antique bronze chandelier is also from L’Artigianato.
