The company Lladro do not leave anyone indifferent. The porcelain figurines of Lladro include ideas and reasons for children, religion, ideal objects for interior decoration and porcelain lamps and bathrooms; sports, angels, decorative elements of nature such as flowers, everyday life and funny situations, porcelains made to honor cities, people, animals or other situations and reasons especially targeting women. The motives of porcelain figurine, with the idea of the beauty of women, are also intended to brighten the view and life to all the men. My opinion as a man is that Lladro porcelain figurines representing the nude figure of a woman are extraordinary. The sculptor is a true artist in the design and development of naked women. The subtlety in the forms of body shape are spectacular. And especially the breasts. The sculptor is a specialist in designing bust of women. In the website of Cocowif, you will be able to find enough porcelain figurines of Lladro and other Spanish and European porcelains depicting nude women. As you can see in the pictures showed in this blog.   Curiosity: In Cocowif, our store in Madrid, we have a porcelain figurine of Lladro depicting a nude. One day a person interested in Lladro porcelain, stopped at one of the naked figurines of our collection and didn’t moving, she was nervous …. We asked her what was wrong and shakily she told us that she was the model of that porcelain figurine of Lladro. We were surprised and delighted us long time. He told us that he saw that figure for a very long time. She used to be a model for artists and sculptors of the company Lladro.   The lady was older, she should be around 65 years old. She still keep its beauty, but as time goes on to everybody, the body was no longer the same. Now comes the summer, do not get crazy about having the perfect figure, getting the perfect body, do not you turn crazy with radical diets that may harm your health.

There were almost fifteen years that were consumed in finding a way to an own original expression and different to others, and with a large market product. They were years of creations, ideas, projects, tests, trials, comparisons, amendments and endly of large doses of reality achieved.   A few years to create a style and a work was structured: the unmistakable Lladro style.   What kind of work was done in those early years?   The works that were performed in those years, now it seem historical, these are works that, despite its nature, perhaps not yet fully defined, and have their character, have an own profile, announcing aloud what to be shortly.   The Lladró brothers were able to create, from the outset, these porcelain figurines with a particular and distinctive mark, so own stylization, that mixture of flexibility, elegance and personality.       The porcelain figurines shown in this article of the blog belong to the first times and you can perfectly observe the styling, refinement and delicacy of all porcelain figurines.

This is the Lladro Assurance program (LAP), which allows the buyer to purchase again the figurine of porcelain or a similar one with lower Price, with a 33% discount on the selling price to the public in any authorized dealer of Lladró. To Which group of porcelains is this insurance goes to? This insurance is intended only to active porcelain figurines of Lladro, no to the retired ones. That logically, are not sold in official stores of Lladro. The retired figurines of porcelain Lladró, can only be bought at the second market. You could also make a personal private insurance to this figurines of porcelain, been indemnified the insurer, in case of disaster, for the purchase value in the invoice. How can you actívate this insurance? To activate this insurance is only necessary to fill the certificate you will find inside the box and send it by mail to lladro for free.

A guarantee that turns customers into possession of a unique and unrepeatable porcelain figurine of Lladro. Why is it better to ensure a porcelain figurine, in order to acquire a new porcelain, that to restore it in case of breakage? As I have explained in previous articles, porcelain figurines lose a high percentage of their economic value when they are restored. A restored work, logically, can not have the same economic value as a porcelain figurine that is in perfect condition. Hence, it is more efficient to purchase, if you have the financial capacity, a new figurine of porcelain, with the discounts offered by insurance, in case of breakage....

Retro furniture, amazing bar decorated in retro style

Posted by on Feb 6, 2015 in Advice, Antiques », English, Retro furniture | 0 comments

What is retro style and the difference between retro furniture and vintage furniture? Both refer to the past, but the main difference is that while the vintage furniture is 100% from an earlier era, retro furniture may be made with today motif, utensils and style of a previous era or an old cabinet, with modern decoration. That is, the main difference is that one is old purebred and the other has a current small deviation. But yes indeed, which no doubt at all, it is true, that both, retro furniture and vintage furniture are fascinating, elegant and stylish  for the decoration of any home or space.     As you can see in the picture the bar is an actual wooden piece painted in black, White, red and yellow lines with a 1970’s piece of metacrylate with led lights, accompained by three spectacular 1950`s decorated stools with new upholstered. As you can see the point of the decoration of this bar is inspired in a barcode. It is perfect to invite your family and friends to have a drink. Give the powerful touch to the decoration of your home with this retro furniture. In Cocowif we give a lot of importance to retro furniture, changed the look of our antiques through modernst decorations. We do not mind the period of antiquity, we make retro furniture, with antique furniture from old nineteenth century to vintage furniture from the 70-80. The idea is to give a special and different touch to the Antique pieces, in order to make it unique, amazing and vital to decorating any space and home. COCOWIF ADVISE: The current trend is to decorate your home in a unique and welcoming space. You don’t need not follow the fashions of vintage furniture and retro furniture, and destrones the antiques of your home. Don’t do it!!! The idea is to mix all styles; create an eclectic decoration, where antiques are highlighted by the colors and the joy of retro furniture, as well as by the more aggressive designs of vintage furniture. The decoration should never be radical, you have to know how to combine trends. From my point of view is equally appalling, total minimalist decor, absolutely full of antique or retro furniture or vintage furniture or art deco furniture decoration. We must highlight the parts with another era or trend. For me, a radical decoration with an unique style or trend, makes the furniture to lose the prominence and the importance of these decorative pieces. Do not burn your antiques, retro furniture or your vintage furniture, even to become decorate your home in a minimalist place. Mix the trends and styles and don`t be afraid. The touch of a retro furniture can allow you to give the missing point, that you are looking for in the decoration of your home.  ...
