Rossana Orlandi

In Milan in a narrow and quiet street, away from the heavy traffic, there is a charming concept store created years ago by another smart lady, Rossana Orlandi. The first moment you see the gate you’ll know that something unusual is waiting for you inside.

Entering the courtyard you are amazed by the variety of furniture, objects, artifacts, all surrounded by a lush vegetation. Is this in Milan you would ask? Yes it is indeed!

In one of the several rooms inside there is a collection of items rescued from old shops (Perrier is a contemporary piece perhaps?).

The old window expands the space into a great natural garden.

An unusual place to enjoy while discovering eclectic pieces of interior decoration.

I wholeheartedly agree with the gentleman from Meade Design Group!

I love your "across the oceans" perspective. You remind me how much I miss Europe. Thank you.
