Spring 2024

Things that we love

Spring is in the air, and we find ourselves yearning for sun-drenched days and balmy evenings. This season, Tuscany captures our imaginations for its quintessential dose of la dolce vita, sophistication and elegance.
Here, we’ve curated a list of our current favourites that evoke the essence of Italian vibrancy of life and the tranquility of relaxing sundowners, all while being enveloped in the fragrant scents of Tuscany.


01. ‘Gold Moon’ lamp by Catellani & Smith

Italian lighting brand Catellani & Smith craft this handmade chandelier known as Gold Moon. It is distributed by our collaborators Anker & Co in Copenhagen. We admire its free-flowing design and lightness, as well as the warm glow it emits, adding beauty and glamour to both public and private spaces. 

02. ‘Ginger Flight Therapy’ by Aesop

The ideal travel companion from Aesop works wonders for those of us who are not fond of turbulent and nausea-inducing flights. Simply apply it to your skin and let the mild fragrance swiftly rejuvenate you.

03. ‘Weekender Set Plus’ by Paravel

Our travels are typically brief and scheduled. This durable and attractive carry-on, along with its matching hold-all, serves as the perfect companion for an Italian weekend or a few days of business travel.

04. Il Salviatino

Whenever we find ourselves in Florence, we tend to check into Il Salviatino. It is close to the city yet tranquil and secluded. We might be partial to Il Salvatino, as one of us was involved in the inception of the hotel, but the patio, overlooking the garden and Florence, is an unbeatable place to relax and enjoy a cocktail.

05. ‘Fussfriend Velvet Slide Sandal’ by Valentino

Even the most enduring high-heeled feet deserve some rest and relaxation. At the end of a long day, we relish the chance to kick back with a drink, wearing these stylish yet supremely comfortable slip-on sandals.

06. ‘Pot Pourri In Ceramic Vase’ by Officina Profumo Farmaceutica di Santa Maria Novella

The ultimate fragrant potpourri to bring home from Florence, consisting of buds, leaves and flower petals, has been produced here for centuries. The colourful ceramic pot just adds to the whole experience!

07. ‘Volt’H Mini Power Bank’ by Hermès

The Hermès Mini Powerbank is practical, attractive and admittedly pricey – some might consider it unnecessary. Technology that appears purely functional and out of place can be a real kill-joy. This device allows us to charge our phones rapidly and elegantly while on the move.
