Born in 1930, Piero Fornasetti grew to become one of the best-known Italian artists of the 20th century. Characterized by his willingness and ability to try his hand at almost anything, from painting to graphic design, it’s no surprise that his name is actually now most famous in connection to product design. Launching an atelier in the 1940s, Piero Fornasetti unwittingly created the entity that would outshine even himself.

Baring the work of its founder, Fornasetti furniture sands at the intersection of everyday utility and fine art, occupying a niche that today is stronger than ever. Arguably most famous for its depictions of Lina Cavalieri, an opera singer known in the early 20th century as the most beautiful woman in the world, Fornasetti’s output is unmistakable.

Today, Fornasetti furniture’s distinctive style is inextricably linked to supreme luxury, making it the perfect gift for someone special this Christmas. Investing in luxury interior design can be daunting, though, so to help your decision, we’ve rounded up 10 of our favorite items from the Fornasetti collection below.
