Arte Italica creates handcrafted, one-of-a-kind tableware, glasses, and home accessories that evoke the essence of European luxury. Founded in 1997, the company specializes in designs inspired by company founder Ann Skidmore’s admiration of Italian culture and art. Arte Italica’s innovative series include the best-selling Tuscan dinnerware collection, which pairs ceramic and pewter; the pewter-and-glass Tesoro and Splendore collections; and the pewter-and-slate Pietra. With hand-painted motifs, uneven edges, and Old World themes, Arte Italica's Medici dinnerware and serveware set appears delicate yet is microwaveable and dishwasher-safe. With Baroque-style bath sets, pewter picture frames, and many more items, Arte Italica can add the finishing touch to all your home’s rooms.
These artisan-made pieces from Arte Italica lend palazzo chic to every room in the house. Sit down to a Florentine-style feast with the gold-etched dinnerware, entertain with pewter-rimmed highballs or snag some porcelain votives and black-glass barware to give as gifts (so special they’ll think you picked them up at a little boutique in Italy).
Take a mental trip to the Amalfi Coast by surrounding yourself with selections from this wide array of Italian home accessories by top-flight brands including Missoni Home, Richard Ginori, Bellora, Fazzini, Signoria Firenze and more. Infuse lightheartedness and elegance into your home at once with Richard Ginori’s tabletop items, perhaps best characterized by the “Levante” collection of coffee and tea pots, cups, saucers, bowls and other accessories. The items in this collection feature red patterns — some botanical, others geometric — that pop against the white porcelain background, making after-dinner coffee or tea an important event. Or transform your bed with Fazzini’s “Antigua” duvet set, which boldly speaks of Italian passion with its floral pattern punctuated by swaths of contrasting bright color (blue, lavender or lime green).
