Eye on the Designer: Creazioni

One of my favorite furniture lines is Creazioni, a brand by Italian manufacturer Silik and a brainchild of Cristina Gattei, CEO of Silik. The name “Creazioni” means “creations” in English and captures the essence of the brand, which is to take classic styles and bring a modern, playful look to them. These re-imagined pieces take the glamour of traditional styles and brings a new level of character to them with a truly unique eye for design.

The result is a line of furniture that can capture your imagination. Vibrant colors, intriguing patterns, and even some whimsical illustrations transform these beloved styles from the past into something completely fresh. I have a few in my own home and they are always inspiring conversation. On a recent trip to Milan, I also had the opportunity to visit the Creazioni factory which was a very inspiring experience. Take a look at some of my favorite pieces from their current collections…
