Since its humble beginnings as an artisan workshop in the early 1930s, three generations of the Riera family have grown the company into one of Mallorca’s most impressive furniture and interiors businesses. And they are still based in the town of Manacor where it all started, with their 2,000-square-metre showroom brimming with top-quality furnishings from world-class brands.
UNDERSTATED STYLE AND WARMTH
But it’s their interior design projects that really showcase their impeccable eye for curating pieces for your home, and few homes provide a better setting than this luxury property, located in the uber-upscale coastal neighbourhood of Bendinat.
The Mobles Riera interior design team have deftly matched the smart contemporary architecture of this high-end property with pieces that pair to perfection. At the heart of the home is an airy, open-plan living space that elegantly blends the kitchen, lounge and dining areas. The kitchen is finished in sleek-yet-tactile Grigio Corda lacquer by Italian specialists Veneta Cucine together with warm sawn oak panelling. An elegantly thin countertop is from Inalco, which contrasts gracefully with a solid walnut dining table with micro-cement legs.
AIRY MEETS ARTY
Moving to the light-filled, double-height lounge space, Mobles Riera have chosen sofas by Barcelona-based Atemporal and more Italian chic from Alberta Salotti and Mogg brands. Evening illumination is provided by Olev designer lighting, which appears to gracefully float in the air. A geometric wall lamp by Laura Meroni adds an arty, avant-garde element, while Ditre armchairs are finished in soft suede-like nubuck leather.
The outside furnishings have had no less care in their selection, with a sofa and other outdoor furniture picked from the swish Talenti range. There’s a touch of French design here, too, with outdoor rugs by Ligne Roset tying together indoor and outdoor spaces. The result is a perfectly balanced harmony of styles and brands that bears testimony to both their in-house talent and over 90 years in the business.
