Trick & Treat

Trompe l'oeil, French for "deceive the eye," was especially popular in Renaissance Italy. Artists employed the technique as a cost-saving measure to imitate the appearance of marble, wood, and decorative plaster architectural details in churches. Masters like Mantegna and Correggio painted ceilings to look like they were open to the sky & heavens, complete with airborne angels, saints, and joyful putti. Alessandra was surrounded by trompe l'oeil while growing up in Rome, and today likes to sneak a hint of it into every room she designs.

✤ Into The Woods ✤

Faux Bois has always been a part of Alessandra's life. Inspired by an antique Macassar wood box nestled in the corner of her office, Bosco's lush faux bois pattern brings nature into your home in an unexpected way.

✤ Vimini ✤

Vimini, or “Wicker” in Italian, is a visual pun on one of our favorite techniques. Organic and undulating in its three-dimensional form, it takes on a graphic quality when applied as a print.

✤ Cestino ✤

The pattern and structure of a basket – or “cestino” in Italian – is familiar, but we have adapted it for new applications and a subtle visual pun. Equally at home with contemporary art, floral prints, and striking white leather, Cestino can be organic or graphic, depending on its use.
