Nothing says Italy like sleek, sexy design that offers the strength of solid lines with the seductive nature of sensual, humanoid curves.

The boutique-style showroom exhibits more than 200 world renowned suppliers, full of magnificent finishes in every colour, texture & patterns, housing the latest collections & movements from exclusive design houses and carefully select mill partners from around the world.

With a noticeable rise in demand for curved sofas, people are looking for alternatives to the more formal arrangement of two straight sofas facing each other, or the classic L shape. A larger, curved sofa can accommodate as many people – but in a more sociable way. Curved sofas are working very well in contemporary homes: rounded, organic shapes help break up the hard lines of modern interior architecture and add a sense of flow. They can also create a visually strong statement in a hallway or an intimate seating area in a reception room.

Handcrafted in maple and upholstered in fine leather or fabrics, is the highlight of Donghia's new collection. The shapes exude an inviting comfort yet with lines that are sleek and elegant and rendered in sumptuous tones of Prussian blue, caramel, lake green, ivory and pure white. Sophisticated shades of pink are blended with pastel colours, emphasizing the nuances of a rich and varied palette.

It's cosy and commanding curves perfectly illustrate Donghia's amazing ability to create furnishings which are equally elegant and functional. The stunning make-up table features a unique collection of mirrors in a range of dimensions, a piece of sophisticated furniture designed with slim metal legs, antique gold finish, luxurious Calacatta marble top and pleasantly rounded drawers.

Kris Turnbull Studios, set within a stunning Grade B-listed converted church on the buzzing Lisburn Road in Belfast, is the only one of its kind in the country. The creative team offers the full complement of design services; architecture, interior architecture, interior design & styling. The diversity of brands, design houses and world influences guarantees a unique and comprehensive styling to suit from the traditional right through to the modern contemporary.
