The Palace of Venaria: A Reading Corner With Basma Elhefnawi
Magnanimous and opulent, this new Covet House project, designed by Basma Elhefnawi and Egypt’s Oculus CG Studio, is a veritable ode to the royalty and lust of the more classical times of our history. Behind all the brightness and sumptuousness, we can find a cozy and elegant reading corner where blue, grey, black, and white tones meet. Strong but, at the same time, relaxing colors represent a clear invitation to well-being and enjoyment of the surrounding space.

Vinicius Side Table is another successful example of the duality and contrasts achieved with the combination of two of the world’s finest materials: Nero Marquina and Estremoz marble.

Not visible but still illuminating the whole atmosphere, we have the Pharo II Wall Lamp. Pharos was an island where the most famous and grand lighthouse stood in ancient Alexandria. Nowadays, lighthouses take on simpler forms, just like this wall lamp. Made of gold-plated brass and crystal glass, Pharo II Wall Lamp is a beacon of light to rupture the darkness in a magnificent reading corner.
