Heritage Collection is the essence of a country, a portrait of a world of cultural elements uniquely confined to the root of a person. It is that legacy that gives us, today, symbols that we’re proud to claim as fruits of our ingenuity, as well as symbols which were adopted and taken as our own, from paths crossed momentarily in the past. Heritage, a collection that catalogues what is essentially the birth of a nation, is completed with pieces that reflect important landmarks, in days of yore. With Heritage, Malabar moves into a classic, more ornate design philosophy in order to stay true to the inspirations, setting itself worlds apart from the first collection, World Architects. Cornices, friezes, carving, tiles, gold and silver leaf, wrought iron, ceramics and other time-honored elements and styles will be some of its characteristic components.
During the 15th and 16th centuries, Portugal discovered numerous territories and maritime routes. The Portuguese sailors navigated across the world exploring, discovering and mapping the coasts of Africa, India, Canada and Brazil. Malabar was inspired by these happenings to design the Horizon Modern Side Table, since it is the most important part of the Portuguese history. It features organic contours of a coastline in mind, structured in gold leaf coated wood supported by a lacquered wood base finished with immense gloss, to give the idea of Portugal’s triumph. This modern side table is perfect for a refined and contemporary living room or even bedroom.
