Face and Stripes Buffet by Fornasetti

Face and Stripes Buffet by Fornasetti | Salone del Mobile Milan 2012

 

Piero Fornasetti once said, “I don’t believe in dates or period. I don’t believe in it. I refuse to establish the value of something by its date.”  Piero’s son, Barnaba Fornasetti, seems to share his father’s belief; his re-creation of the Fornasetti buffet for the Milan Salone del Mobile 2012 is without a doubt a timeless piece.

Based on the Fogliolina Buffet, the Faces and Stripes Buffet adds vivid of-the-moment colors to the classic black and white background of Lina Cavalieri’s portrait.  As we’ve mentioned before about Lina Cavalieri, her iconic face is the defining detail of the Fornasetti line, but it’s the bold touch of the bright stripes that makes this our favorite out of the new series of Fornasetti buffets.
