Let's just put it out there: if you're reading a design website, you've fantasized over a home decked out to every one of your preferences. Maybe it's filled with modern amenities, maybe it's got a crazy collection of vintage pieces surrounded by stainless steel and wood, or perhaps all it needs is a functional, colorful aesthetic that holds your books. Since we can't all be architects - and even if you are, you might live in someone else's dream house - turn inward. Alf Da Fre is a well-known Italian design company that offers their new modular system, Day Collection, to the design-savvy population by starting with a wall unit designed to your heart's content.
Day Collection. Designed by Alf Da Fre.
Begin by showcasing a personalized style through your choice of materials and color in the Day Collection's 4 categories: Light System, Domino, Free, and Pod. You can choose between up to five natural woods, a brushed oak in 10 different finishes, up to 28 different lacquered colors in a matte or glossy finish, and 9 different shades of tinted glass for the doors. Even the handles (of short to long lengths) come in different colors and finishes.
When putting together the Day Collection system, opt for any ratio of bookshelves to media center, add some cupboards or drawers for storage, and then sneak in a shelf or two for photographs or flower vase. On their website, Alf Da Fre mentions all of the different usage examples in an easy-to-follow 25 page pdf file available for download. This includes choices in size and material of floor-positioned bases, back paneling made for wire management, regular back paneling, desk drawers, baseboards and benches, wall shelving units, back panels with shelves, and even desk (to name a few). Basically, whatever you want you can do with Alf Da Fre's Day Collection.
The team at Alf Da Fre places much of their focus on innovation and their client's satisfaction. They say that part of their company philosophy describes how "designs and concepts are studied and transformed into what can be considered the invisible quality of the products". Emphasizing reliability and highly technical solutions to wall systems, this Italian company has set out to help create your ideal space.
