Fornasetti art

At my home, we have three Fornasetti plates as wall art in the dinette. Here is more inspiration for wall art with Lina Cavalieri, as motif. For example in a white practicable kitchen together with a vintage bar cart.

This is a great example of eclectic design with mid century modern console ikea stockholm table, white Sebastian Wrong spun T1 Table Lamp, white vases and Fornasetti plates wall art.

The black and white ideas of Fornasetti are all over this kitchen.

Piero Fornasetti was a workaholic. He lived most of his life in Milan. This year is his 100. birthday. He worked as a painter, sculptor, draftsman, copper engraver, lithographer, furniture- and product designer, graphic artist, interior designer and book illustrator. He created more than 11000 items, many featuring a face of a woman, operatic soprano Lina Cavalieri, as a motif.

My first contact with Italian artist Piero Fornasetti was in South America. I was in the house of the writer Pablo Neruda during my holidays in Santiago de Chile. He was a big fan and friend of this artist. In every room of Nerudas House in Santiago and his holiday home in Valparadiso you will find furniture, plates or vases etc. from Fornasetti. The world of Piero Fornasetti is a dream state of Alice in Wonderland with optical surprises and magic metamorphoses. And in Pablo Nerudas houses you feel exactly like this. Dreams can be true!
