The Lace House
"The Lace House" dates back to the Middle Ages, it is said to be the first school of "Spindle lace" established by Cora Slocomb, president of the cooperative " Italian Women Industries" in 1903.
The recovery of the property preserves, as much as possible, the volumes and the original structure.
The spaces are enhanced by fine finishes, flooring in cocciopesto, walls in venetian plaster.
The request was to furnish "The Lace House", enhancing its characteristics and giving the right balance to the shared spaces.
The house is mainly divided in two floors:
The ground floor is a single space where there is a Modulnova kitchen corner, complete with storages, including a long breakfast counter.
A generous space for lunch, with a bench and table in natural oak, is dedicated to the conviviality of the family.
The living room houses two iconic Maralunga sofas by Cassina and the Bramante sideboard in glossy plum-colored lacquer.
Upstairs are the two bedrooms, one of which with a bespoke study corner, and the bathroom.
Color is the king in this project. Skillfully calibrated, it is used to enhance the individual areas and give notes that are constant fresh and elegant.
we cannot forget to mention the evocative curtains, with flowers embroidered on a transparent weft.
