The new boutique represents Bottega Veneta's commitment to its home collection

Bottega Veneta, long loved by fashionistas for its exquisite artisanal leather goods and apparel, has opened its third store in the heart of Milan — its first dedicated to its home collection

Located within the 18th century Palazzo Gallarati Scotti in Milan, Via Borgospesso — Bottega Veneta's new boutique dedicated to its home collection — joins the brand's Via Sant'Andrea Maison and the historic Via Montenapoleone locations, making this new boutique its third in the heart of the city.

Contemporary elements play dramatically against the historic palazzo’s soaring coffered ceilings

Conceived and designed by Bottega Veneta creative director Tomas Maier to present a curated story, the 205 sq-m ground floor boutique brings luxury and craftsmanship together with local culture and historic architecture. In a refined atmosphere that exudes the comfort and intimacy of a luxurious home, the collections are organised in a series of tableaux, proposing various dining, living, bedroom and studio areas.

 

For some specific collections, the label has collaborated with esteemed manufacturers such as master furniture maker Poltrona Frau for seating

Notable design features include double glass doors with burnished metal handles, tiled floors, traditionally plastered walls and custom furnishings throughout, such as the display table in the boutique's foyer crafted from iridescent black Rovere Slavonia oak and glass. These contemporary
elements play dramatically against the historic palazzo's soaring coffered ceilings and remarkable frescoes by 18th century masters Carlo Innocenzo Carlone and Giovanni Battista Tiepolo, providing an exceptionally unique setting that honours the existing beauty of the location.
