Elevated design: Modern Heritage collection by Indidesign and D’style

Designed by Beatrice Girelli, the collection eyes to bring an elevated design to guestroom casegoods.

Custom hospitality furniture and lighting vendor D’style has collaborated with Indidesign, a Los Angeles-based hospitality design firm, on a new furniture collection. Designed by Beatrice Girelli, co-founder and design director of Indidesign, the new collection eyes to bring an elevated design to guestroom casegoods. 

The new collection, Modern Heritage, is Indidesign’s first product debut. The series of eight products includes beds, nightstands, desks and bathroom vanities. The design team drew inspiration from Italian modernist design, paying homage to the work of Gio Ponti.

Part of the collection is the Modern Heritage Vanity XVI, which has several rectangular planes, with the strong contour of the stainless steel base drawing a striking visual with its negative spaces. The various levels of transparency between the brushed black stainless steel base, grey-tinted tempered glass shelves, and concrete marstone top add to this effect, offering a contemporary appeal as materials are visible through one another. By contrast, the curve of the white circular sink basin, accented by Pantone Blue Ashes by MTI, adds a playful element to the vanity.

Virtual Roundtable

Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience

Join Hotel Management’s Elaine Simon for our latest roundtable—Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience. The experts on the panel will share how to inspire guest confidence that hotels are safe and clean and how to win back guest business.

The Modern Heritage Vanity XVII was designed by Beatrice Girelli for D’style. Inspired by geometry and vintage style, the vanity has a steel base with a strong linear contour that complements the simplicity of the matte black faucet by Speakman, and rectangular sink basin. While the white-speckled Marstone top and blackened steel frame contrast for dramatic visuals, the gray-tinted glass shelving combine the two materials to create a grayscale palette. It also uses glass, steel and Marstone.

The Modern Heritage Queen Bed X uses materials like metal, stainless steel and oak. Ideal for guestrooms and presidential suites, the Modern Heritage Queen Bed X is finished with Tiger Leather in style "Femme" and color "Twilight."

The Modern Heritage Queen Bed XI, also designed by architect Girelli, has brushed black stainless steel headboard coupled with a russet brown on oak wood platform. The headboard is covered in Tiger Leather’s Esquire style in color Mary.

Meanwhile, the Modern Heritage Nightstand XII highlights a unique U-curved shelf that recalls the contours of Mid-Century design. The Brushed Black Stainless Steel base contrasts against the white-painted shelf, while the Russet Brown on Oak drawers add warmth to the piece.
