10 Fabulous Furniture Pieces From W.Atelier’s Early Bird CNY Sale

Zanotta Judy Armchairs and Flamingo Sofa

From a chair debuted at this year’s Salone del Mobile in Milan to a timeless table designed in 1946 by one of Italy’s maestros, W.Atelier‘s CNY Sale offers the latest and greatest furniture pieces from brands LEMA and Zanotta at the best possible price point. Get up to 30 per cent off regular priced items and up to an additional 15 per cent off during the Early Bird period. 

Included in the promo are pieces by world-renowned designers like Neri&Hu, Piero Lissoni, Ludovica+Palomba, Cristophe Pillet and Carlo Molino.  

Here are 10 of our picks:

1. LEMA Taiki Sofa

Designed by Italian designer Chiara Andreatti, the Taiki sofa pays homage to Le Corbusier with its lines and proportions. The sofa’s heat-treated ash frame adds a dash of oriental spirit.  


2. Zanotta Flamingo Sofa

Designed by Stockholm-based British designer Damian Williamson, the Flamingo sofa features dainty steel feet (available in polished or black painted aluminium alloy, or black nickel satin finish) and removable external cover in fabric or leather. 


3. Zanotta Judy Armchair

Do you need armchairs to complement the Flamingo sofa above? Look no further than the Judy armchair. Designed by Zanotta designer Frank Rettenbacher, the armchair features similarly dainty steel legs (available in black or graphite) and enveloping backrest in beech plywood (available in oak or walnut paint finish), and removable upholstery. 


3. LEMA Bai Lu Chair

Designed by Neri&Hu, Bai Lu (“white dew” in Chinese) draws inspiration from the second week of September in the Chinese calendar when the design was conceived. Made with lacquered wood, Bai Lu features a silhouette that recalls the shape of Asian seats, with a playfully (and literally) twisted armrests.


4. Zanotta Lia Chair

Designed late Italian designer Roberto Barbieri in 1998, the Lia chair is a timeless dining chair with clean lines that communicate lightness. Available in fabric upholstery (removable) or cowhide (non-removable). 


5. Zanotta Noli Chair

Freshly presented in Salone this year, the Noli chair is a brainchild of prominent Italian design studio Ludovica+Palomba. The chair features a solid beech wood frame, a curving backrest and a lightly padded seat that can be upholstered in leather or fabric. Available in a host of subdued colours that include rosebrick, ash-grey and mustard. 


6. Zanotta Derby Armchair

Debuted in 2009, this bergere swivel armchair designed by French designer Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance has become one of Zanotta’s most iconic pieces. Derby features sensuous curves articulated with a steel frame, swivel steel base and polyurethane body covered with heat-bound fibre and cowhide. The range includes an upholstered pouf. 


7. LEMA Mustique Sofa

Maltese designer Gordon Guillaumier drew inspiration for Mustique from an island with the same name in the Grenadines. The idea is to provide a generous place for relaxation. The Mustique sofa features a metal structure consisting of two H-shaped sections that support upholstered volumes and cushions made more precious by the stitching detail. 


8. LEMA Memo Table

Have a stately room to furnish? Designed by Italian maestro Piero Lissoni, the Memo table has got your covered. Available in three-metre and four-metre-long (and 1.1-metre-wide), Memo will own the large room while at the same time appear light thanks to its proportion. Memo features metal structure and heat-treated oak or lava stone table top. 


9. LEMA Long Island Sideboard

A brainchild of French designer Christophe Pillet, the Long Island sideboard elegantly balances metal, heat-treated oak and marble. The oak drawers and doors bring warmth, the thin marble top lends a touch of lux and its thin metal frame and legs create an impression of lightness. 


10. Zanotta Reale Table

Born in 1905, Carlo Mollino was one of the most fascinating figures in Italian design. His oeuvre consisted of bespoke furniture pieces designed for Europe’s wealthiest and a curious mixture of products ranging from Polaroid photographs to cars and aeroplanes (which he test-drove and flew himself).

The Reale table is Zanotta’s reinterpretation of a table designed by Molino in 1946, which looks incredibly contemporary for a design that’s older than Singapore. Reale features intricate wood structure and either marble top (20 mm thick) or glass to (15 mm thick).
