Artemis Deco was founded by husband-and-wife team Maja and Toby in Maja’s parents’ kitchen, which was bursting with beautiful ceramics they’d collected on their travels. Today, Maja and Toby work with local artisans to produce collections that create the same sense of nostalgia. The latest is a striped ceramic collection called ‘Vacanza’, carefully crafted in a small hill town in the Italian region of Umbria.
Marbera is based in Paris and makes its pieces in Italy. Inspired by founder Laura Torregrossa’s passion for transforming precious natural stones into unique furniture and objects, the brand was launched in 2020. Its Dolce stool has caught our eye – the polished outer shell brings out the natural beauty of the stone, while a comfortable cushion is integrated in the base but is easily removed for cleaning.

You can now shop cushions, bolsters and gathered shades in the same iconic print.
