Midcentury Italian Lacquer Brass Living Room Set by Romeo Rega, 1970s

$21,403.03per set

About

This three elements living room set from the Mid-Century Modern Italian Riviera period designed by Romeo Rega is bursting with nostalgia. With its impeccable design, perfect proportions, and high-end Italian black lacquer and brass materials, it was likely a hugely expensive undertaking in the 1970s. Yet, the resulting symmetry and unusual beauty is a worthy result of such efforts. A really impressive set with a very metropolitan chic character to it. The entire set consists of a three-seat sofa, another two-seat sofa and one armchair. All newly upholstered with beautiful light grey soft velvet from Nobilis, reference Calder 10698-07. Dimensions: 3-seat sofa is H 28 in. x W 76.4 in. x D 32.3 in., 2-seat sofa is H 28 in. x W 52 in. x D 32.3 in., armchair is H 28 in. x W 32.3 in. x D 32.3 in. and seating height for all is 17 in.

About the Designer

Romeo Rega

For his range of sophisticated modernist furniture, Romeo Rega worked with wrought iron, textiles, glass and more, yielding an amalgam of geometric shapes, sculptural flourishes and glamorous sensibility commonly associated with the Hollywood Regency style that remains popular today. For collectors in the know, vintage furniture made by the Italian designer's eponymous company is branded with his iconic double R logo, and Romeo Rega lighting, tables and other work is recognized globally for its seductive materials and dazzling forms.

Growing up in the heart of Rome, Rega apprenticed with a blacksmith and, just like his craftsman father before him, became a master in the skill of working with wrought iron and forging. In 1957, Rega opened his own workshop and began to explore his potential as a designer while collaborating with other master metalsmiths and blacksmiths. The creation of gates, railings and various furnishings led to a pivotal moment in his career — a contract with Italian movie studio Cinecittà. Rega was commissioned to design and manufacture the chariots for the 1959 acclaimed American film Ben-Hur.

In the 1970s, the Rega trademark was put to use and the designer began to mass produce furniture — including chairs, console tables and more. Renowned designers like Willy Rizzo and Gabriella Crespi collaborated with the company over time but the production of now sought-after Romeo Rega furniture ceased during the 1980s.

Among Rega's clients were A-list Italian entertainment and cinema celebrities, and the company’s furniture continues to be coveted by collectors today. At Hudson, New York–based antique shop Regan & Smith, Rega’s work is among the owners’ favorite designs.
