Incalmo is a very difficult technique which consists of melting together two blown forms to obtain a single, composite piece, usually with parts of different colours. And Incalmo is the working tecnique used to make the beautiful glassworks in the photos produced by Venini - one of the historic Italian glass-company, existing in Venice from 1921 - as part of the ArtGlass Collection. How beautiful!

Giampiero Panepinto, Capri Tiberio Palace

Capri Tiberio Palace has been completely restored by the architect Giampiero Panepinto. The building hosting the hotel - dated 1856 - is on the beautiful isle of Capri, in Italy. The mix of brillant colors and patterns, selected pieces of contemporary art, modern comfort and some touch of vintage give the interiors a strong identity.

A new trend for rugs of next A/W 2012-13

"The simplicity of an irregular, circular outline defines the form of each design, delimiting a centre and a perimeter that will never be exact or symmetrical." After side tables, also rugs celebrate irregular shapes. Above the Aros series from Nani Marquina. Following, Gem by Normann Copenhagen and Geo Art by Nodus.

New life for wooden barriques: Giuseppe Leida – Tino cavallino

"The design of Tino cavallino - by Giuseppe Leida - was inspired by carefree childhood life, cradled by play and upbringing; a stylized horse for a child of two or three years of age, easy to produce and made using reused elements such as the staves of the barriques. The arched shape of the oak staves and their colour reddened by the wine in the concave side themselves contain the very essence of movement and life.Tino will be a friend to some lucky children and the pride of adults who know that, while making it they will recover themselves, as well as the casks. Being at SanPa is like being reborn, growing up, getting to know oneself and becoming playful again."

Through ancient trades, young people find a new life and used wood is recycled into a work of art. The barrique recycling project is the result of a partnership between San Patrignano, Maurizio and Davide Riva, and the support of Federvini, FederlegnoArredo and Cosmit, drawing on an impressive list of thirty world renowned designers which created unique pieces using French oak casks from the Community’s winery.

Yesterday I had just added natural linen to my wishlist on Pinterest when I read this post on Vosge Paris and I discovered the fabulous giveaway (actually closed) of Tricia and Desiree .
Well, Desiree - of Vosge Paris - has organized a giveaway (actually closed) with a creation of Rough Linen, the company held from Tricia. I went on her website to look at her products and I found not only the beautiful linen you see in the photos but also her home, that is a special way of living (read her blog). Her home is a cabin on the water, with wonderful interiors, with a view on a bay, in Northern California. There, every Rough Linen product is personally made by Tricia (when she's not out looking for her lost hats with her kayak;-)
