    Back in 2006, a San Francisco–based Italian-American couple set out to find an Italian retreat near her native city of Bari. After an exhaustive search, and the failed purchase of a modest home, they chanced upon one of the area's many decaying masseria, fortified farmhouses that dot the Puglia region. Despite the compound's "horrible state of repair," the couple fell under the spell of Villa Pizzorusso's Romanesque architecture and Arabic detailing and never looked back. Reviving the centuries-old structure with the help of local architect Cosimo "Mino" D'Astore took three years. Now fully restored—and furnished with style and restraint—it's available for rent by the week, six bedrooms, swimming pool, and orange grove included.

    Villa Pizzorusso exterior 3 via Designtripper, Remodelista

    Above: The central courtyard of the villa is entered via a grand archway. When it was built in the 16th century, farmers and livestock would file through the portal each evening, seeking protection from marauding Turks and other invaders. Photograph via Designtripper

    Villa Pizzorusso, salone, Remodelista

    Above: Under the vaulted ceiling of the masseria's former stables, the salone provides a communal gathering, cooking, and eating area with an open kitchen and seating for 16.

    Villa Pizzorusso, salone table, Remodelista

    Above: The owners designed the interiors of Villa Pizzorusso themselves. Avid foragers, they gathered furnishings from all over via, Italy's equivalent of Craigslist. The result is an eclectic mix of custom built-ins (by Mino), local antiques, and contemporary finds that pay homage to the building's past and present. In the salone, the generous dining table is made from Balinese teak that the owners' son found for them; Mino designed the base. The chairs are Spanish and came from the same local design shop as the B&B Italia sofa.

    Villa Pizzorusso, exterior gloaming, Remodelista

    Perhaps the first bottles ever to get recycled as decor: Outsize French and Italian wine bottles—known as demijohns, damigiana, and carboys—have long been put to use as sculptural objects. An easy way to add spring color to a room, they look equally at home in a clean-lined or rustic setting. Here are some examples we've been admiring.

    Vintage demijohns and damigiana (characterized by their round bodies and small necks) and carboys (identifiable by their straight sides) are widely available: Search sellers on eBay and Etsy; some bottles come wrapped in their original wicker. Pottery Barn offers a selection, PB Found Oversize Wine Bottles, gathered in Central Europe by a collector and priced at $99 to $199. Wine Sphere Pendant Lights are available from Wild Flower Organics.

    Jackson Pollock was hardly the first to elevate the paint drip. Spatterware (also known as splatterware) ceramics and enamelware have been around for centuries. But not all is equal. We especially like these classic glazed terracotta designs with just the right amount of speckling. Made by a generations-old, family-run workshop in Puglia, Italy, each piece is hand thrown and splattered. Available in eight color combinations, the line is available in the US from March in San Francisco.

    Scotti Sitz and John Davidson, the owners of Garde in LA, discovered textile collaborative Gruppo di Installazione a couple of years ago at Maison Objet. "We were walking through the exhibition halls, and we stopped in our tracks when we saw their work," John says. "Their work is both primitive and modern and has an entirely handmade look."

    Founded by three young Italian fashion-world insiders, Samanta Mancone, Fabio Timodei, and Fabrizio Flaccomio, who share a passion for textiles and traditional folk craft, Gruppo di Insallazione makes handcrafted trousseau classics rooted in traditional design but with a contemporary, and decidedly artful, edge. The trio set up shop in an old factory in Abruzzo, in central Italy, where they employ century-old looms to create innovative, contemporary textiles. The work is available at Garde in LA (new pieces will be arriving soon).

    Here's a look at the latest modular kitchen systems from Italy: practical, precisely engineered, and, yes, pricey. The advantages? Modular systems offer the entire package, with an all-of-a-piece design so you don't have to cobble together elements from different sources (cabinets from here, counters from there). And most of the companies featured here have been in the business for decades and cater to a worldwide market. The drawbacks? You sacrifice a certain amount of aesthetic control, and most of these designs are pricey. Interested? Here are eight good examples of Italian kitchen ingenuity:

    Alpes Inox

    Alpes Inox Kitchen System | Remodelista

    Above: Alpes Inox's freestanding, stainless-steel kitchen systems are multifunctional and made to come with you should you move—none are built-ins, so they can be rearranged as needed, and most designs are available on wheels. See Race-Car Style Appliances for Compact Kitchens.

    Based in Bassano del Grappa, Italy, Alpes Inox is a family-run business; it's been fabricating kitchen equipment since 1954 using high-nickel stainless, which has a durable, bright, white shine. For more information and prices, see Alpes Inox, and contact Mr. Passalacqua in the company's export department at


    Arclinea Kitchen, Remodelista

    Above: Arclinea's Convivium Kitchen System is an open-living design, a "true center for rapport between the cook and the others." 

    Arclinea was founded in 1925 in Caldogna, Italy, where it's still based. Since 1986, Italian architect and industrial designer Antonia Citterio has directed the company's designs. There are 13 Arclinea Distributors in North America, including Arclinea showrooms in San Francisco, New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Miami, and Washington, DC. 


    Boffi Kitchen, Remodelista

    Above: The Boffi Aprile Kitchen, designed by Piero Lissoni, integrates rustic materials in the design: Its cabinet doors are made using wood staves of varying widths and thicknesses. 

    Situated north of Milan and in business since 1934, Boffi has a worldwide presence, including Boffi North American Studios in Washington, DC, New York, Miami, Chicago, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. In addition to kitchens, it offers bathrooms, storage systems, and a range of interior items, such as lamps. The company's long list of contributing designers ranges from Marcel Wanders to Claudio Silvestrin.

    Poliform started in 1942 with a focus on bookshelves, wardrobes, and other home furnishings. Situated in the Brianza region of Italy and still family-run, it added kitchens to its repertoire in 1996 through the acquisition of the Varenna brand and now offers nine kitchen system designs. Poliform's North America Network includes more than 40 dealers, and there are dedicated Poliform stores in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago, New York, and Miami.

    Rossana has been in the kitchen design business for more than half a century and has collaborated with big names like Michele De Lucchi, Rodolfo Dordoni, and Vincenzo De Cotiis (his burnished brass DC10 kitchen can be seen in the Milan apartment of Britt Moran and Emiliano Salci of Studio Dimore).


    Schiffini Kitchen, Remodelista

    Above: The Cinqueterre, the first all-aluminum kitchen, was designed in 2000 by Vico Magistretti for Schiffini. Photograph via DesignSpace London.

    Schiffini was established in the 1920s to supply nautical fittings to the Italian Navy dockyard in La Spezia and later specialized in the furnishings of military and civil ships. In the 1950s, Schiffini reoriented itself to kitchen furniture design, and claims to be the first Italian company to produce a series of modular offerings. Still located near La Spezia (think Italian Riviera), Schiffini is available in the US through McDuffee Design in Chicago.


    Valcucine Logica Kitchen, Remodelista

    The youngest of the Italian companies in our lineup, 35-year-old Valcucine is known for revolutionizing kitchen ergonomics with its 1996 Logica Kitchen (picture wall units with lift-up doors and cabinets with removable drawers). The Logica was updated recently and remains one of the more technologically advanced modular systems available. If you are looking for something with less drive, Valcucine offers several other kitchen systems, too. Valcucine US Dealers are located in New York, Minneapolis, Tulsa, Chicago, and Dallas.

    In Europe, radiators are the embodiment of quiet, gentle warmth and minimalism. Here, they have a reputation for being ineffectual and outdated. But this scenario is changing along with the profile of the radiator. No longer clunky, hissing pieces of iron that take up valuable space, modern wall-panel radiators are well-designed, quiet, efficient, and increasingly available in the US. Imagine a heating system that isn't seen or heard. 

    Runtal Flat Panel Wall Radiator, Remodelista

    How do wall-panel radiators work?

    Wall-panel (also called flat-panel) radiators work essentially the same way as old-fashioned radiators: Water is heated in a boiler and then flows through the panels to heat the surrounding air, radiating a warmth in the room. Note that wall-panel radiators are compatible only with "closed loop" hot-water (not steam) heating systems. 

    Kate Watson-Smyth Dining Room Flat-Panel Radiator, Remodelista

    Above: Slim panel radiators are also available with floor mounting as seen (though nearly invisible) in the London dining room of journalist and blogger Kate Watson-Smyth. Photograph via Mad About the House

    What are the benefits of wall-panel radiators? 

    Efficient heaters. Radiator heat is generally more efficient than forced-air systems, which lose upwards of 30 percent of their heat through the ductwork. Compared to traditional models, flat-panel radiators have a vastly increased surface area for giving off heat. They require a much lower water temperature to heat, and will only heat to the necessary temperature, keeping them safe to the touch. Flat-panel systems are also easy to zone, offering room-to-room temperature control with multiple thermostats. So you can limit energy waste and cost by heating select rooms rather than the whole house. 

    Clean. Radiators don't stir up dust like central forced-air systems.

    Quiet. No more hissing and hammering.

    Space-saving. Flat-panel radiators have a very low profile (some as slim as two inches) and can be mounted on unused sections of a wall, freeing up floor space. And compared to baseboard heaters, flat-panel radiators take up less wall space and make furniture placement less restrictive.

    Aesthetically pleasing. Their flexibility in placement and range of designs enables flat-panel radiators to be either nearly invisible or used as an architectural element. 

    Runtal Flat Panel Wall Radiator, Remodelista

    Above: Starting from scratch? Wall-panel heating systems are initially more expensive to install than forced air, but the energy efficiency should result in cost savings over time. Photograph via Runtal.

    Where can I get wall-panel radiators? 

    The following are a few of our favorite options that are available in the US market. Most are also available in floor-mount and baseboard configurations, and come in a range of finishes and colors. 

    Above: Founded in 1953, Swiss company Runtal is known for its engineering expertise and architectural design. The Runtal Arteplano Radiator is shown here in anodized aluminum. Contact Runtal USA for specifications and pricing.

    Above: Canadian company Jaga offers the Tetra Radiator and other models in the US; find a dealer on the Jaga website.

    Above: Belgian company Vasco makes the Arche-Plus Radiator in horizontal and vertical configurations. Like many of the radiators shown here, it can also be outfitted with towel rails, towel rings, and robe hooks. In the US, the Vasco Arche line is available through Hydronic Alternatives

    With two locations in Milan (the first at Corso Magento and the newest at Via Palermo in the Brera design district), Raw has the city's distressed/vintage market cornered. Paul Badesco, a designer, and Constantine Affuso, an architect, travel around Europe and the US in search of "the unusual and the poetic," as they say.

    These curvy glass designs and full-figured baskets stopped us in our tracks on a recent visit to Garde in LA.  They're the work of Italian interior designers Fabio Cocchi and Luigi Rotta of Pianoprimo, who have been creating elegantly playful household staples since the early nineties. Garde owners Scotti Sitz and John Anderson discovered the duo at last fall's Maison et Objet and have just introduced the collection to the US. Anderson says, "We love that the designs look classic but very original at the same time. Besides being beautiful to look at, they can all be put to everyday use."

    Milan's rawest yet most refined restaurant, Carlo e Camilla in Segheria, is located in a former 1930s sawmill (segheria is Italian for sawmill).
