Another beautiful cooperation between a major designer and a retail giant is that of Paola Navone and Crate&Barrel. The brilliant architect, interior designer, art director and event designer, Paola Navone hit the ball out of the ballpark with 3 stunning collections that debuted couple of weeks ago and are getting enthusiastic reception from C&B customers. I watched the crowds swarming the Paola Navone displays at my local C&B store this past weekend and no wonder: fresh shapes, bright hues and pieces that simply work and mix well.
The 3 collections: Como, Mallorca and Riviera introduce dinnerware, furniture, lighting and accessories, each in it’s own blue and white variation. As Paula said herself, she was influenced by all shades of blue: “the blue glazed tiles of Morocco, the Turkish blue eye, the blue of the Medditeranean”.
Shown above in pictures are pieces from the Como collection. Visit your local Crate&Barrel to see all of this beauty yourself. But hurry, some of the pieces are available in limited quantities, such as this Riviera table:
