Grand Hotel a Villa Feltrinelli | Gargnano - Italy - 2000-2001 | Interior Designer: Babey Moulton Jue & Booth

Grand Hotel at Villa Feltrinelli in Gargnano, on Lake Garda, is today a totally captivating hotel, not merely because of its stunning location on the lake surrounded by its splendid grounds, but also because of the unique atmosphere created by the furnishings and the architecture of the five buildings which together make up this magnificent hotel complex.
Villa Feltrinelli, formerly the property of the respected Italian publishing family from which it takes its name, became the official residence of Benito Mussolini during the years of the Italian Social Republic (1943–1945).
In 2000, Interna Contract, on behalf of the new owners, Robert H. Burns Ventures Srl, has supplied all the furniture and interior décor, including drapes, carpets, lamps and other accessories. Every single item was designed exclusively, and to the highest possible standards of quality, for the Grand Hotel Villa Feltrinelli.
To the Interna team this project, unique in its complexity and in the staggering number of new designs involved, represented a real challenge to ‘go one better’: it supplied 2000 different, exclusive pieces, many of which were rare antiques, painstakingly restored by Interna . Precious textiles were used for the drapes, walls, chairs and other upholstered furniture, and many were printed with special one-off designs.
Interna Contract worked hand in hand for the entire 12-month duration of the project with Babey, Moulton, Jue and Booth of San Francisco, who were responsible for the overall design.
