As the prolific Piero Fornasetti – painter, sculptor, interior decorator and printer – once stated, “We have the habit of buying ‘signatures’, and no longer invest in beautiful things that we like.”
Now is your chance to rediscover a world of beautiful things and ideal treasures, and take a step in to a dream world of Fornasetti’s creation. Whimsical and humorous, it is known to be inhabited by a familiar face; a muse that launched over 350 variations on plates, glasses, paperweights and candlesticks; a muse that has now been handed down to Fornasetti’s son, Barnaba.
And so the visual legacy lives on, to bless your home with precious objects.
Enigmatic and still as a Greek statue, Lina Cavalieri’s prominent face is revealed, this time, upon a collection of candles that are as unique as they are instantly recognisable. Each of these candles are gloriously scented with hand-blended perfumes, such as the voluptuous floral medley of Flora di Fornasetti. Inspired by the lush flora that inhabits the surrounds of the Fornasetti house, this perfume weaves floral notes such as iris, jasmine and tuberose with the greenery of ivy, before it settles upon a distinct, warming base of sandalwood and musk.
These candles, and their exquisite display of master perfumery, are treasures that Piero himself would have considered a truly beautiful investment.
