Private residence Porro

In Parioli area, in a building from the 1940s, Loto AD Project renovates the apartment of a young entrepreneur from the world of soccer. And the Roman residence thus discovers the beauty of the interiors of the next two decades.

The firm redistributed the spaces by creating two independent zones: the living area and the private area, occupied mainly by the son with his bedroom and play area. The owner’s bedroom is located in between the child’s dedicated space and the representative areas.

The entrance hall, furnished with a console table and mirror by Mogg and a Pia lamp by Promemoria, leads to the living area, which is divided into three rooms: the central living room, the dining room, and the circular living room. It acts as a communication between the reception area and the sleeping area, the hallway, which runs the length of the house and in which the original 1940s niches have been preserved and emphasized, becoming a central architectural element.

On display inside are the Baccarat crystal collection and vases from the Sister collection designed by Pepa Reverter for Bosa, which recall the decorative theme of Fornasetti wallpaper and transform the hallway into a sort of exhibition gallery

Eclectic style

The environment is enveloping and achieved through the use of different materials: the wallpapers, velvets, fabrics, and carpet chosen as flooring. Original elements or reinterpretations with a 1940s flavor are used together with furnishings with a 1960s appeal, creating an eclectic and refined style. The fireplace is original and the Scrigno cabinet by Edra and the table with DOM Edizioni armchairs are also in tone. On the walls, the geometric patterns of De Sign fabrics are combined with the dark petrol green color also picked up by Edra’s Absolut velvet sofa. Emerging in the room is Mario Ceroli’s wooden horse.

The living room is separated from the dining room and circular room by style sliding doors decorated with Chinese motifs. In the dining room, Saarinen table by Knoll with Emperador marble top, Gilda seating by Edra, and the Barovier and Toso chandelier. The central living room also leads to the classically inspired circular room, where semi columns with Ionic capitals punctuate the wall decorated with Fornasetti wallpaper. In the center of the room is Edra’s Flap sofa and Minotti’s column coffee table.
