Furniture without colour is like a day without music. It is through colour that I instill a soul in every item, by dressing my elegant wooden bodies with refined coatings. Their identity is Sicilian in every possible way, just like mine, although permeated with the influences of my multiple journeys, and with my cultural and stylistic contaminations.
Harmony in a space is the result of all its details. A long creative process and devoted attention to the details must ultimately be able to express the comfort of a living space and the natural state of feeling at home.
With a woman’s brain and a designer’s hand, each trait of my projects is meant to be useful, and also dreamed to be beautiful. Each piece of furniture in our homes or workplaces, besides welcoming us in a style we love, should be helpful and comfortable in our daily lives.
If they are beautiful and functional, all pieces of furniture can become versatile. I love to think that each item of my collections can be used in many different contexts, in a living room or in a study room alike, discovering each time a different identity, and revealing a totally unique and special aspect of its personality.
Just like in fairy tales, my ideas show up at night time, when imagination sits comfortably in the mind rooms and interacts with reality, taking it to a higher level. Daily observation and the desire to find the best solution, suddenly flow into an image that I quickly sketch on a piece of paper: that is -usually- exactly what I was looking for, what gives meaning to my project.
Every image needs to be perfected through an endless series of details. Sizes, proportions and, above all, finishes, materials, colours and processing, turn the idea into a project, ready to be handed over to those who will create an object out of it.
From my sketches, experienced artisans of wood, iron, fabrics, leathers and decorations start their thorough work: they all share with me the same passion and that meticulous attention to nuances which eventually make the difference. On each prototype, we work together in order to highlight its qualities and eliminate its flaws, until we are fully satisfied because we have reached the desired results.
The inspiration, the precision and the connection with people who work by my side, are all elements that contribute to bring to life creatures which immediately express their charming and mature personality. The artisanal work is what makes each creation original and each piece unique in its own way. All my collections breathe like a living soul, capable to create a continuous relationship with the surrounding space.
