Milan Design Agenda brings you today an amazing mid-century showroom located in the north of Portugal. This amazing space could very well belong in Italy, seen as it showcases many amazing quality pieces with incredible quality and craftsmanship. Introducing The Covet Valley: an establishment entirely dedicated to the exhibition of some amazing luxury pieces inserted within the mid-century vibe.
This amazing mid-century showroom is beautifully decorated with the inspiring retro collections of DelightFULL and Essential Home, which makes this bespoke house project the dream house for all those who call themselves vintage design lovers. The many pieces that you’ll find inside were all handmade by the most skilled artisans, something that is deeply inserted within the Portuguese culture and history.
Overlooking one of Europe’s most breathtaking landscapes – the Douro, a UNESCO’s World Heritage Place – Covet Valley is the epitome of mid-century modern design, otherwise known as the house that could be the perfect fit for an early James Bond movie. The incredible Covet Valley is represented by the American concept side by side with the true Portuguese soul.
This is the perfect example of a project in which luxury and elegance meet each other in a seductive setting with the promise of elevating interior design and craftsmanship into a whole different level. And they do that with exquisite pieces that successfully bring the past and future into the present, both involved in an irresistible mix of a delicious combination of mid-century elements.
Originally built in the 1960s, Covet Valley keeps its mid-century architectural roots intact by featuring rigorous geometric lines and large windows which perfectly integrate the house in its natural surroundings, perfectly combining mid-century elements with a luxurious touch.
