Gino Cenedese & Son’s colorful handcrafted vases, goblets and chandeliers combine age-old Murano-glass techniques with the company’s own creative history. Founded in 1946, this Venetian workshop collaborated with artists such as Marc Chagall and Luigi Scarpa Croce on production items, which are sold in boutiques worldwide, as well as one-off pieces, some of which have appeared at art events like the Venice Biennale. And although Cenedese may be best known for its range of Aquarium sculptures — large clear blocks of glass filled with suspended fish and seaweed — it also specializes in the Sommerso — or submerged — technique, which uses layers of contrasting- and/or complementary-colored glass.
Imbue your home with a beachy vibe—even if it’s anything but summery outdoors—with goods featuring the classic pairing of blue and white. Make a graphic statement with Judy Ross’ Spray handknotted rug, fashioned from silk and wool, or rest easy on Sferra’s Lindsay sheet set, with its floral-inspired jacquard embroidery. Finally, snag an elegant accessory, like Cenedese’s cobalt Murano-glass vase. Each is mouthblown in Italy, following centuries-old traditions.
Add some laid-back chic to your boudoir with this mix of cool hues, natural materials and whitewashed accents. Luxuriate in Couleur Nature's hand-finished bedding, offered in bright prints and stripes, or add texture with Jardins du Jour’s twice-fired Lattice ceramic vase. To bring the outdoors in, opt for Barreveld’s wooden garden trays and terracotta pots. And to get the ambiance right, don’t forget DayNa Decker’s Rosa Flora candle and diffuser, which will fill the room with the scent of ivy, mandarin, grapefruit and anise.
