One of the most delightful surprises I experienced at the Salone del Mobile in Milan was my visit to “Porte Italia” (P IT for friends), which offers unique furnishing solutions. This excellent Italian company creates, paints and ages each of its furniture pieces with the grace and style of the Venetian 18th century.
Leonardo is the name of the decorative master painter who makes every creation of P IT: a tailor-made masterpiece, constructed according to the personalized specifications of the most celebrated designers in Paris, Milan, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Europe, India, United States, and the United Kingdom.
P IT collaborates with Venetian silk and fabric firms as well as those who work Murano glass and have been in business since Marco Polo was a boy.
At the P IT booth at the Salone del Mobile in Milan, I was able to appreciate the magnificent chandelier made for them by my friend Aristide Najean; it would leave breathless even the most exclusive customers of P IT such as royal families, movie and music stars, business leaders, politicians and other celebrities who shall remain anonymous.
