Golfing legend and Italian design firm in partnership

Greg Norman and B&B Italia to design classic interiors with a contemporary twist.

The interiors of the signature villas on the Jumeirah Golf Estates Residential Community will be based on the four elements: Fire, Earth, Water and Wind, while a fifth style will be influenced by B&B Italia's contemporary range, the ‘Maxalto Collection'.

The 66 ‘Rosewood' villas have been designed by Greg Norman and will feature interiors by B&B Italia Contract Division which specialises in furnishing complete commercial projects such as hotels, offices and retail spaces as well as cruise liners. On the design Greg Norman said: "I have been very hands-on with the design of ‘Rosewood', as I am with all of the projects I undertake. It has been great to allow my imagination to run free in a new direction with the design of these homes."

B&B Italia Contract Division will provide an on-site design centre to allow buyers optional packages which will see them design and fit out the whole house based on the five signature styles. Roberto Barbazza, marketing director of B&B Italia said: "The design centre will allow clients to choose a theme as well as mix and match styles."

While the colours and interiors of four out of the five styles will reflect the elements, the ‘Maxalto Collection' inspired villas will feature contemporary classic interiors with a fusion of European and Arabesque influences. Barbazza said: "The lighting scheme of the ‘Maxalto Collection' was inspired by the lighting at the Madinat while the large tiles in the bathroom and kitchen as well as marble clad walls and generous use of oak will add to the typically Italian feel."

Bang & Olufsen will equip all of the villas with state-of-the-art electronics which will include the BeoSound 9000 multi-CD music system, a 40" BeoVision 7 LCD television in the living room, a 32" BeoVision 7 LCD television in the master bedroom and a pair of BeoVox 1 ceiling speakers in the breakfast area.
