[Bob Mubarak X Rover Collection]
Drawing inspiration from Equestrian Chic styles for a romantic and adventurous vibe, the Rover furniture collection by Commune is designed for the modern, elegant and urban customers.With its elements of European tailoring and classic silhouettes, the rustic-modern collection utilises dark tropical wood, vintage-inspired leather and traditional British tweed elements to add a touch of European luxe to any interior spaces.
Bob Mubarak went to the Commune store with a strategy: specially looking for greys and clean lines. When he saw our Rover collection, he felt like it’s just perfect for his home. The curves of the rubber wood, stained with matte walnut, and the brass cap on the foot of the chairs instantly grabbed his attention. To him, the design is masculine and yet, soft in its details. The tweed fabric felt like it could withstand abuse. And the texture and chevron-like detailing on the fabric reminded him so much of the european homes – classic and classy.
Living Room 客廳
To Bob, his living room is definitely the soul of his home. That’s where he lazes his weekends away, thinking about life.
That’s why when he needed to choose a new sofa set, he wanted something slightly longer than his previous sofa, and something with a higher backrest. He also wanted to try something woody instead of full fabric because he was getting older.
The Rover collection sofa is classic enough for him. The leather strap detailing on the side of the sofa reminded him of the equestrian feel, and the brass finish at the feet of the sofa elevated the look of the sofa further.
Dining Room 飯廳
Dining area is the heartbeat of Bob’s home. That’s where he works, eats, and where he hosts his guests. Over time, he felt like it needed more character. So he picked a combination of three Rover side chairs and a Rover bench from Commune.
Bob changed his dining chair to the Rover bench. The bench helps the space look neater when it is tucked under. When he is tired, he can feel free to sit, lay flat or even play dead on the bench.
The Rover side chairs are heavy and sturdy, and yet, the rounded and curvaceous form of the frame made the chairs and bench look welcoming. The wide seating and the foamy cushion makes him feel comfortable. Covered with the same tweed fabric as the Rover sofa, the whole look is remarkably handsome.
