Luxury furnishing for offices by Smania

Furnishing an office isn’t as simple as it might seem, especially if we are talking about the design of a luxury studio. With Smania you have the possibility of customising every furnishing element in all of its details so that you achieve a unique result for your work environment.

The office is the business card of a company and as such has to be furnished very carefully. An executive office has to convey authority, solidity, reliability, and at the same time, it has to be elegant and luxurious for welcoming visitors. To achieve this result, it is necessary to design the space very well, with furnishing being chosen based on aesthetics, but also on functionality.

An aesthetically pleasing office equipped with comfortable and elegant design furnishing elements will give a good impression of the company to customers and potential buyers and it will allow you to work better and more comfortably, in an environment that is a reflection of your identity.

Smania allows you to choose between different styles of luxury office furniture and to customise each piece of furniture in every detail: from the desk, chairs, bookcase and lighting to the decorative objects. Before proceeding with the choice of furniture, however, here are some tips to keep in mind for furnishing a luxury office.



Furnishing a luxury office: 5 rules to follow

Furnishing a luxury executive office means carefully designing the spaces and furnishings, which must be elegant and, at the same time, have got to convey solidity and concreteness. The office is the place that represents your company and welcomes colleagues, partners and important customers, so it must stand out for luxury and refinement and be attentive to design right up to the smallest detail. In this article, together we will see the solutions proposed by Smania for furnishig every space that makes up a luxury executive office, but first, here are 5 rules that you should keep in mind when designing your office.

Choose functional and comfortable furniture

Desks and chairs are indispensable furniture in any office. It is essential that these furnishing complements are comfortable and functional, as well having a good design style, so as to protect the health of those who spend so much time there every day.

The Desks must be large enough to accommodate computers, documents and personal items and, at the same time, allow freedom of movement.

The chairs should be adequately padded, to support the seating position and always guarantee an optimal and comfortable posture. They must also be adjustable in height and inclination.

Welcoming, before all else

Without giving up luxury, we make the office welcoming through warm lighting and we give it character by adding furnishing objects and decorative elements. Remember that wood and leather by definition convey a feeling of warmth, but even an executive office furnished in a minimal style can be welcoming.

Design the spaces with great care

Before choosing the furniture you have to carefully design the spaces in the office.  Depending on the size of the room, we will position the desk, which must necessarily face the door, the bookcase and any floor lamps. Only then will it be possible to complete the furnishing by choosing the style and the furniture, as well as giving it a distinctive character through objects and decorative elements.



Create an environment that expresses leadership

Through the arrangement of the furniture and the choice of the accessories we can convey an aura of authority and solidity that will be perceived by those who visit the office. An impressive wooden desk is by definition a symbol of power and solidity, however, if well designed, even a study in the modern or minimal style can express authority.

It is necessary to select quality materials and furniture: wrought iron and stainless steel for desks, filing cabinets and bookcases with a solid and resistant soul; marble, glass and crystal to cover surfaces and tops with sophistication.

To complete the office furnishing with a distinctive aesthetic touch, select armchairs, sofas, ottomans and chaise lounges upholstered in black or white leather, with traditional or capitonné upholstery: a classic style that remains the ideal one for even the most modern spaces.

Make the work environment stimulating

Making the workplace stimulating and personal will allow you to work with greater concentration, additionally, it will give a clear motivational message to customers and partners.

Establish a concept that can use aesthetic terms to express the mood and goals that make your company the best in the field, trying to create a welcoming and luxurious atmosphere.

To avoid creating an aseptic and cold environment, you could add bold, eye-catching decorative elements and design objects to your office furnishing, which reflect your aesthetic sense, or put on the walls some framed posters of quotes by personalities that are an inspiration for your work and the activities you are doing.

Add a personal touch

The executive office, first and foremost, in addition to being an extension of the company, must say something about you, your professional life, your interests and your aesthetic tastes. For this reason, your office should have a well-defined functional and aesthetic character, with accessories that reflect the corporate identity and make it elegant and refined.



Smania’s solutions for the office

Smania proposes various furnishing solutions for a luxury executive office, completely customisable according to the chosen style. Let’s start with the essential: desk and chairs and then go to the bookcase, lighting and furnishing objects.

Depending on the size of the room and the light that is available, we will position the various furnishing accessories according to a very precise logic. For example, if the room is spacious and has large windows, we can choose wood furniture without the risk of burdening the environment. On the contrary, if natural light is scarce, we will have to be careful to light up the room with lamps and chandeliers without creating an artificial effect and we can add brightness through objects that reflect or with materials such as glass and steel. This absolutely does not exclude the use of wood: in the modern classic style, for example, materials, textures and colours are expertly mixed to create a classic effect without renouncing modern furniture.

Desks and chairs

Imposing or with slender lines, the desk is the essence of an executive office. Smania proposes different models of desks and file cabinets, all customisable in their material and details. They range from the important shapes of the Presidential and Metropolis desks, with a strong and elegant character that makes a statement in the office.

We then move on to the more discreet and linear Gramercy 210, with elegant steel details, and to the Jamal desk, having a classic look with leather-covered legs and steel details, to then arrive at the elegant Sirio Mood writing desk, to be placed as a complement to the desk and that brings to mind the lines of a piano, and to Marlon, a refined writing desk with leather details.

The file cabinets proposed by Smania are not secondary, such as the splendid Dat Plus with its strong and versatile character that finds its place in an executive office where two styles coexist, the classic and the modern, or the Gramercy storage unit, which combines a sophisticated design with the efficiency that every piece of office furniture must have.

Each desk must be accompanied by an equally important chair. Smania offers many solutions, from the Roller office chair, with its understated elegance, up to Carey, an executive chair with a trendy design and well-defined lines.




The bookcase is a must in any executive office. The bookcases proposed by Smania are high quality furnishings that are characterised by their exclusive craftsmanship and refined details. On the Smania website you can choose between various bookcases in modern style and with classic notes or you can customise the one you prefer by choosing from a range of diverse materials and unique inlays.

The Smania range varies from the imposing Duke, a bookcase with sculptural elegance, illuminated by metal lines and enriched by leather details, to the more classic Gramercy, a modular bookcase in solid wood.

The Biblo 09 display case/bookcase is also of great importance, giving the office a strong character by embedding itself in the wall: the objects placed on its shelves double their decorative power thanks to the elegant and evocative allure of this bookcase.


The lighting of an executive office deserves a separate chapter. Before choosing how to place the lights in the office, it is necessary to consider how to make the most of natural light. Large windows and skylights help to bring light into work environments, but we must not forget adequate “darkening systems” (that is, shutters, blinds and curtains) to prevent too much light from causing glare and reflections. The ideal is to combine natural light and artificial light in a virtuous manner.

In addition to classic chandeliers and wall lamps, table and floor lamps can also be considered for perfectly illuminating the office.

Smania proposes various solutions for suspended lighting: the Judith chandelier is understated and elitist. Its nine lights amplify the lighting of the environment thanks to the brilliance of the reflections that are created by the metal of the structure. Instead, the Bastet chandelier is more sinuous and sophisticated, equally perfect for furnishing a luxury executive office. But there are many solutions proposed by Smania: discover them all in the section dedicated to lighting.

Here you will also find a vast selection of table and floor lamps: the elegant Snooker and the extroverted Sharon, which is nothing less than a furnishing jewel, or the refined Jersey, a floor lamp perfect for illuminating even the more remote corners, giving elegance and austerity to the office at the same time.



Furnishing objects

Smania creates exclusive furnishing accessories perfect for giving your office a prestigious style, with details that are totally customisable. They are elements that integrate perfectly with the Smania total look, to give life to elegant aesthetic solutions: leather accessories, mirrors, paintings and decorative panels, rugs, vases, decorative objects, columns, objects in fabric.

Prints and decorative panels – Prints, paintings, panels: Smania proposes many solutions that enrich and make an executive office unique. Arabesque Line, a picture with vibrant aesthetics that expands in the room, joining with the melody created by the luxury furnishings. Decò, a precious picture in which the magnetism of the abstract meets the refinement of gold. Marble, where the icy nuances of marble make an environment elegant and refined. And many other proposals, which you will find available on

Columns – Towering and aristocratic like the Master column, or light and elegant like Lux? The choice is yours: both will give value to the object they support and make it the protagonist of the office.

Rugs – Very important as a decorative object, a rug in sheepskin and leather gives the office a welcoming and refined feel at the same time. Like Continental, a soft and elegant rug with rounded edges, or Iceberg, shiny and glacial in its softness. Discover all the Smania proposals in the dedicated section of the site.

Decorative objects – Fundamental for giving that extra touch to the luxury office, Smania’s decorative objects have an innate elegance and refinement that makes them absolutely unique. Discover Iris, which adapts to both classic and modern styles, or Nives, a ceramic vase with an elegant and refined antique finish. Without forgetting Troy, the symbolic horse of Smania, not only a simple ornament, but a true symbol of a lifestyle, the same that is expressed through Smania’s Italian luxury furniture, able to perfectly combine classic and modern.



Colours and shades for the executive office

The choice of the colour of the walls is also important in designing a luxury office. To be considered in relation to the style of the office, the combination of colours plays a fundamental role in the overall furnishing effect and must be harmonised with the furnishing accessories, paintings, prints and flooring.

Cream and beige are choices that suit both a classic and a more modern style and they give the room a touch of sobriety and elegance. Wood inlays or walls entirely in wooden panelling are indicated for a classic style, while dark brown and dark grey, cleverly combined with furniture in lighter shades, make the executive office refined and authoritative.

It is best to avoid excessively cold colours, which could lead to drowsiness, as well as colours that are too bright, which could increase visual stress and have too strong an impact for any visitors to the work spaces, such as customers or suppliers.

The choice of a professional

Smania is a solid and reliable partner for professionals who want to make their executive office unique. Let yourself be inspired by the Smania collection and rely on the Smania MyMood philosophy to make each piece of furniture and every decorative element truly unique.


Smania coming to Saloni Worldwide Moscow 2018

Smania is set to wow Moscow with an elegant, sophisticated array of products, showcasing the way it expertly uses combinations of wood, leather and fabric to create a warm and inviting feel. The brand’s space at Saloni Worldwide Moscow 2018 is designed to put visitors at the centre of attention and allow them to embark on a voyage of discovery into the brand’s philosophy.


Carefully selected materials, artisanal manufacturing techniques and stunning combinations of colours, shapes and fabrics come together to create an exclusive yet unconventional sense of luxury – one that embodies the brand’s constant exploration of the worlds of classic and modern design.


During the event, which runs from 10 to 13 October at Moscow’s Crocus Expo Centre (Hall 08, D15), the Italian company will showcase a range of its furniture products, with the pieces designed to contrast and interact with one other to create a uniquely sophisticated setting.

First up is a luxury study dominated by the LOCK desk, designed to combine classic style with modern needs. It’s a wonderful example of the talent of the Smania’s sartorial craftsmen when it comes to attention to detail. The desk, which features a grey leather covering, stands out thanks to the colour contrast created by the rosewood of the compartment, with its dark veining. On one side sits the stunning GRAMERCY executive chair. Noble and austere, it features an ergonomic seat pad and back rest in leather. On the other side of the desk is the bold yet comfortable GATSBY chair, whose open backrest breaks up the space. Completing the study are the CONTINENTAL rug and large BELMOND sofa, a new product for 2018 by Iosa Ghini. This modular sofa is available in both leather and fabric, with big cushions that can be moved about at will.

The journey continues in the second part of the stand, where the sumptuous and elegant GRAND SOHO bed stands at the centre of a bedroom, flanked by two elegant GLAM side tables in leather and watched over by two MAILA ceiling lamps in ceramic in a “lustrous” finish. Also present are the DENVER rug and LOCK decorative panel, whose combination of straight and curved lines creates an intensely beautiful effect.

The EMBASSY chair, another new piece for 2018 by Iosa Ghini, completes the room. It is a dynamic, cosy piece, fully padded, with arched arm rests. Meanwhile, GISELLE, a steel table with detailing in shiny black nickel, and LOREN, a versatile wooden make-up table, increase the storage options for the room.


Against the opposite wall stands the CONTINENTAL chest of drawers, which combines the elegance of wenge wood with the shine of black steel. Also on show are the SHARON table lamp in Murrina, with steel detailing and a shiny rose gold finish, the low LOCK sideboard and the BRION mirrors with wooden frames and steel detailing.


This stunningly creative collection of furniture solution promises to be a hit with the Russian market, which is increasingly alert to quality, innovation and exclusivity.


After Moscow, Smania will participate in the exclusive Salone del Mobile.Milano Shanghai between 22 and 24 November 2018.

Channel the Smania style to create an elegant, luxury office

Your office is the first thing people see when they visit your business and then it’s vital that we’re looking our stylish best. Perfect for anyone wishing to bring personality into their workspace while ensuring it remains practical, Smania can create a unique environment thanks to its office furniture range. Every perfectly proportioned piece is studied in meticulous detail before being made using the finest materials and – most importantly – plenty of passion and love. For Smania, that’s what luxury is all about.



Smania believes that a luxury office space should be airy, relaxing and welcoming, with custom-made pieces in both classic and modern styles all around. There’s no doubt that desks play a vital role, representing as they do the centre of each individual workspace. Given their importance, desks must be perfect in every way. Metropolis and Lock are perfect examples of this. The former’s solid design and warm tones contrast with the latter’s fluid shaping and cooler colours, yet both share a soft leather covering and structure made from the finest wood. One of the stand-out features is the stunning designs created through the quartering, which showcases the mastery of Smania’s expert woodworkers.



As we’ve already said, we believe luxury offices should be a combination of elegance, practicality and comfort – especially for the people that actually have to work there. Ticking all of these boxes is the adjustable Gramercy Low office chair, whose ergonomic design and soft, padded seat make it a triumph of comfort and finesse. Another fundamental element for any luxurious workspace is the bookcase, which again needs to serve a purpose in terms of both practicality and aesthetics. In this case, the Lowell 145 bookcase has all the answers. With four shelves and closed compartment with lift-up door made from matte rosewood or matte tobacco, Lowell 145 provides the perfect setting for your best books and decorative objects.



On a conceptual level, luxury offices are no longer linked to the stereotypes of formality, static decision and standardisation. Comfort and practicality are growing in importance as we look to make our workspaces more unique and welcoming. Smania makes this possible through its unparalleled attention to detail and the option it offers clients to customise its range of office furniture according to their own taste.


Smania’s solutions to restyled executive offices

Whether you have already been on your summer holidays or you are still waiting to take a well-earned break, what is definite is that upon returning to work, you we feel rejuvenated and brimming with energy, ready to face the final part of the year and add an injection of novelty into your life. So why not satisfy this desire for change by restyling your executive office? Smania offers solutions to rearrange and revamp the workspace with bold, on-trend luxury furniture with a superior finish.


Smania’s latest collection, also presented at the Salone del Mobile 2018, results in a classic-chic luxury office with a “vintage” allure that adapts perfectly to modern-day living without ever forsaking elegance. What are the must-haves? A wide and roomy desk, of course, such as Metropolis, an impressive classic-style table featuring a harmonious blend of wood for the structure and leather detailing. The desk should be paired with a comfortable chair, such as Magnum: this executive armchair in white “Micronabuk”, a fabric very similar to but even more valuable than velvet, features soft upholstery and a spacious seat for added comfort.


For a tidy and perfectly functional work environment, Smania offers Lowell 145, a 6-shelf bookcase in matt rosewood or matt tobacco rosewood essence with steel details and a glossy black nickel finish. Modular in nature, this classic furniture can be combined with other drop-front compartments to create a fully equipped, multi-section wall unit. The perfect executive office is complemented by elegant accessories, such as the Colorado table lamp or the Gramercy desk set, and the ideal combination of colours and materials, such as soft leather, precious wood essences in warm hues, and refined velvety fabrics in light shades of colour.

The desk: a luxury classic furniture icon

Smania is celebrating Father’s Day with a product that boasts a strong, sophisticated character. Gramercy is a complete set for desks designed to stylishly enhance the executive offices of managers, businessmen and professionals. The solution combines, in a very modern design, the timeless elegance of leather and shiny steel details. Gramercy is defined by its contrasts: softness and warm tones provide the background to more geometric accessories in a harmonious dialog of shapes and nuances.

Touching it allows you to experience the passion for beauty that Smania expresses in all its creations. Gramercy can be customized by choosing between different types of leather. More intense types, such as Florida, Lux, Nubuck, Dundee and Bycast, which add warm colors to the desk, from dark tan to dark brown, earth and sand colors, and the austere elegance of grays. Or more structured leathers with rougher surfaces: micro indents, imperceptible incisions and vintage details. The names – Ancestor, Savana, Oregon, Onix and Africa – speak the language of pure, unspoiled, primordial beauty. With this range of colors, Gramercy thus becomes ideal for any type of table: from classic luxury furnishings to the most modern executive office, from dark wood to surfaces made of glass or more innovative materials.

Smania has combined the material warmth of leather with a material – steel – shaped to create designs with a strong character. The hexagonal pen holder, which is cut in an oblique section, the letter holder and a rectangular object holder closed on three sides with slanting profiles, the paper knife with a minimal, futuristic design and the solid, elegant business card holder. Every detail is designed to reflect a responsible man, who loves his work, a role model who is a passionate and energetic father.

Total look by Smania: luxury furniture to bring an exquisitely elegant feel to your space

When you furnish any space, you choose furniture and accessories that suit your taste and match the many facets of your character. The room that takes shape will be a reflection of you, showcasing a truly unique style. And the next logical step in this process is to create a total look, where every single detail complements the next in terms of materials, colours and shape.

And of course, it’s all done with Smania’s sophisticated hand.

You can give your living room a complete Smania makeover by combining Derby leather sofas with pieces from the Lock collection, which are finished in the same material. Moreover, the steel detailing in the collection works wonderfully with Smania’s many side tables featuring metal decorations. Console tables and other furniture can be used to show off a special decorative piece like Tory or the round Bowl, which in turn evokes the curved lines of the Lock collection. It’s an approach that will ensure that all of the furniture in your luxury living room will work in perfect harmony.

You can apply the Smania total-look approach in your bedroom too. The delicate Diamond bedlinen set – which is sure to guarantee a relaxing sleep – is a fantastic match for any of the beds we offer, such as Harrison: an inviting mix of the classic and the modern, with a padded headboard and bed base covered with soft leather. And to complete the design of your luxury Smania bedroom, you can throw elegant rugs, sleek lamps or even a warm blanket like Galles into the mix – perfect for the coldest nights.

Every room in the house can be fully furnished with stylish Smania products but tailored to fit your
mood: from the dining room, with matching tableware and candle holders ideal for high tables, right through to outdoor areas, where sofas and tables are finished to perfection with throws, vases and lamps by Smania.

Even luxury offices can get the Smania total-look makeover. Choose from desk accessories such as Gramercy, which is compatible with every piece of furniture we produce, leather goods like Cartella and our series of bags and suitcases perfect for the office.

By combining our furniture and accessories, you are able to create a sophisticated, one-off Smania look for all your spaces. Each detail flows seamlessly into the next, in a symphony of colour, material and shape that engages sight, touch and smell all at once.
