10 essential for contemporary homes

There are pieces that are imperative when we talk about modern homes. Find out our suggestions!



Like this owl, from Iittala and that we love, we have our eyes on the principal must-have pieces for any home.
They are contemporary and stand out for their originality and for being avant-garde: in their lines, shapes, colors, design. They are objects that transform any space and still can be combined with other objects that you already have at home; they are unusual and therefore surprising. 

In these proposals, give personality to the environment is more important than anything else and, believe me, these pieces will not remain indifferent to anyone!

From kitchen accessories, to Portuguese design, through lighting, to decorative pieces: get inspired and take your favorites to the decoration of your home!

Letters are her huge passion and writing is what fascinates her the most. She has understood that decoration can be so charming as the words, so, gathering together the two areas is an amazing challenge, as well as the culmination of a very rewarding adventure.
