One of the most recognizable architectural structures in Milan is the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II. It is also known as "il salotto de Milano" (Milan's drawing room) due to it's popularity among the Milanese as a meeting place for dining and shopping.

Architect Luca Bombassei's home is a great example of  Modern & Old World design.

Nothing more handsome than a herringbone floor. Horizontal architecture!

Luca's use of classic black and white speak to beauty and modern elegance.
I wouldn't mind living here. Would you?

These spherical beauties were displayed at the worlds largest furniture trade show.

Ludwig Mies van der Rohe's (less is more) "Brno Chairs" done in Dolce and Gabbana Style.
Here D&G added just "a little more" to make it their own.

Design meets function and beautiful things happen. Intimacy is created by alternating the entrance to each table, creating smaller spaces within the space. The connection is made by an ungelating ribbon of banquets adding fluidity and movement...All lit by a cloud of champagne bubbles... ethereal at it's best!


Old meets new in an 1840's neoclassic railway station reinterpreted by Moschino. No lack of imagination here. Moschino creates an envoirnment that is unexpected and taken from the pages of a fairytale.
Whimsical and Magical!
