Bianchini & Capponi specialise in Italian antique replication in a modern style. A mixture of art and history, Bianchini & Capponi create exacting pieces of period design; technically correct down to the drawer handles, but interpret them through modern styles. The Argento Vanity and Mirror are fine examples of this distinctive style. The Argento Mirror has a fabulous period shape, but the weathered silver gilding elevates it to a timeworn glamour. The Argento Vanity radiates sleek sophistication. The brilliant white top accents the illuminating silver body and chrome faucets. The sculptural body highlights the high quality craftsmanship. The Argento features two drawers with small contrasting handles, which are carefully inset on each side. It is small details like these handles and the delicate scroll work on the legs which give the Argento vanity such refinement. The Argento is made from reclaimed antique wood, often salvaged from grand Tuscan villas and castles. Each piece from Binchini & Capponi is hand crafted, no two are alike. Hand primed and hand painted, the Argento is then gilded in resplendent silver. The Argento Vanity, including the mirror, basin, and three-piece chrome basin mixer, is available for £5,991 (11,418 US$) from CP Hart.
