There is nothing more personally rewarding than designing a piece, whether it be a piece of furniture, lighting or an accessory and then seeing the final result when it arrives here, at our showroom in Greenwich, CT.  On our most recent trip to Italy; after a morning of winding through the beautiful Italian countryside, passing the endless groves of olive trees, Jeff and I arrived at the small, charming, ceramics factory – one  of my favorite stops on our trips to Italy. The beautiful, hand made ceramic pieces that they produce are truly one of a kind. The attention to detail and quality makes it a must – see on our list of places when we go to on our buying trips. I love the various items we have bought from them over the past year and the designers were only to happy to let me create my own designs.  I designed lamps, bowls and vases in an array of shapes and colors – really a fun day for me!   Not long after, Jeff told me that the container had arrived from Italy at our DC showroom in Greenwich and I went straight to the loading dock to help unpack – I couldn’t wait to see what they looked like! The beautiful pieces had exceeded my hopes – they are truly amazing.  Here are a few of my favorites, The Ochomare Lamp – swirls of raised ceramic “waves” remind me of the beautiful blue color and feeling of the sea.  Our gorgeous Capra Lamp, with it’s raised “buttons” has to be seen in person to fully appreciate the rich colors and textures. Check them out on the WebsiteInstagram or come and see them in person. I would love to show you around our newly designed show room! Until then, ciao – Brenda
