Reading the Room
A secluded sanctuary overlooking the Amalfi Coast, 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.
Taking pride of place is a Venetian settee, designed in an 18th century style and hand painted. It’s upholstered in rich Paolo Moschino fabric, draped with an Hermes blanket and sits atop a bold Bessarabian-style Kilim carpet.
The villa is home to many original artworks, from vintage maps to a rare Matisse. This 1970’s piece is from French painter Jean Debuffet, one of the founders of the Art Brut movement. It’s displayed in a beautiful custom lacquer and gesso wood frame.
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 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.
Vintage lighting and fixtures have been carefully selected to add to the sense of European elegance and timeless indulgence. The floor lamps in the main living room have custom silk shades by renowned Parisian designers Galerie des Lampes.
Enjoy total privacy with an unforgettable escape to Villa Margherita. These two sumptuous suites that can be combined for a secluded villa experience. The rich interiors are completed by breathtaking Amalfi views from every vantage point.
