Rubelli in Milan


Inside a courtyard in the “old money” district of Milan there is, in a XVIII century building, the Rubelli showroom, just the architectural details are worth a visit but when you enter you are also fascinated by the exquisite beauty of their textiles.

An area is reserved for Donghia, now belonging to Rubelli, collection of furniture, accessories and textiles. All Donghia lamps are manufactured on the tiny island of Murano, in the Venetian lagoon by the best local artisans.

This particular table was also displayed at the Furniture Fair 2010. I always loved the center pedestal for a dining table, instead of legs, which can create problems at times with the arrangements of chairs.

Looking up you can be mesmerized by the affreschi on the ceiling.

Looking down you can admire the beauty of the marble floor ,Venetian style.

Even the windows lead to a beautiful view of a private garden.


Needless to say, as in Venice, I was enchanted not only by the extraordinary textiles but also by the appropriately stunning location.
