Our favorite brands, laid out just for you. This exclusive list features all the brands we love right now and all the brands you’ve seen throughout the mag.
A Modern Grand Tour
Having amassed a fascinating and wondrous collection of art, curiosities, antiques and collectibles at his 17th century palladian home in the UK, Aynhoe Park, James Perkins has a brand like no other. A Modern Grand Tour is the curated collection for sale, famous for those fabulous Ostrich Feather Lamps we are so obsessed with!
Expert craftsmanship has been the focus of this company since its creation in 1958. Its founder, Mario Guerra, specialized in crafting with Zebu horn (hence, the name). The lux collection is absolutely lust-worthy, replete with golds, blacks, and intricately beautiful horn details.
Seguso Vetri d’Arte
The Seguso family have been creating beautiful works of art from glass since the 14th century — they know what they’re doing and they do it masterfully. With knowledge passed down from generation to generation, we don’t know their secrets but we know they make some of the most exquisitely designed and crafted glass lighting and table top Italy has to offer!
Sicis has completely reinvented the art of marble and stone mosaics. From glittering gold patterns to Marilyn Monroe, they do it all. Creative, avant-garde, colorful — their designs are anything but boring. 100% made in Italy, this luxury brand is made for those who appreciate fine art and design. Be sure to check out their furniture as well!
Tori Soudan Collection
Fabulous statement shoes, designed by an empowered American woman and made in Italy. Inspired by seeing master shoemakers on a study abroad trip to Italy in college, Tori Soudan took that inspiration and ran! Creating sophisticated and sexy shoes for powerful women, she calls on them to express themselves fearlessly.
It’s difficult not to fall in love with Fornasetti! The iconic face of Lina Cavalieri lives on forever, through the thousands of drawings made by the Italian artist Piero Fornasetti throughout his career. Today, his son reinterprets his work by incorporating them into the design of home items like decorative plates, candles, and more.
Patricia may have been born in Spain, but she is Italian by choice. Famous for her innovative furniture design, she has won Designer of the Decade, Designer of the Year (for multiple magazines), and been awarded the “Order of Isabella the Catholic” by His Majesty The King of Spain Juan Carlos I, we’d say she’s a name you NEED to know.
