Hoping to be stranded for a week in this man's house

Many have seen his work, the quirky-stylish, quasi-Victorian images.
It's become part of the trend for quite a few years now.

Recognize this? -->

Yes, the plates bear designs by Piero Fornasetti


"Italian designer Piero Fornasetti was a true master.  He took everyday objects like dinner plates and lamps and imbued them with style and wit.  My favorite series of his is his variation on a woman's face.  His nod to surrealism and use of bold graphics has yielded some of the most iconic images ever created."

By all means, see this:  Fornasetti's House
You MUST see the site of this artist, you WILL like it!
See the home of the Master's son Barnaba Fornasetti - also a designer and graphic artist, and a true treasurer of his father's legacy.
His home and home-studio is absolutely amazing...

 “fashion items
that will never
go out of fashion”
