In 1983, while visiting Italy’s Amalfi coast, Susan, Frances, and Lee Gravely stayed at the San Pietro Hotel in Positano. The inn’s handmade dinnerware captivated them, and so they arranged to meet its makers, who worked at a nearby factory. Inspired by what they saw—and eager to bring the pieces to the States—the trio founded Vietri upon their return home. Today, the North Carolina-based company is the largest U.S. importer and wholesaler of handcrafted Italian items, with its range extending from tableware and flatware to candles and mouth-blown glassware.
Set a sleek, sophisticated table for everything from quiet dinners at home to big get-togethers. These accents, with their inspired color, texture, and overall design, hit just the right tone.
These furnishings and accents combine a rustic feel with a contemporary aesthetic. The overall effect is one of a chic farm house… but these pieces will work just as well as a bucolic-tinged counterpoint to an urban dwelling.
Art, soul, and seriously high-quality tools: all three of these elements comprise the Italian kitchen. To that end, you’ll find colorful, stylish essentials and accents here, from cheese graters and washing bowls to wine-themed art prints. We’ve also got a selection of foods and wines that’ll instantly transport you to the Boot.
