Less is more: Lilia Laghi and Lorenzo Rossi’s house

This room seems plain but it is not. It is all about details, quality and art. The table Frate is by Enzo Mari for Driade: the legs are functional and elegant. The Canvas Chairs are designed by Paolo Chiasera : the armrests are actually canvases. On the wall the  guache artwork Untitled by Anish Kapoor. The arch light by Achille Castiglioni is a classic by Flos: every house should have one. The sculpture Un village sans frontières with the little blue chair and a wooden pagoda made of brown candles on top  is by Chen Zhen (I love it). The rug, Lost in Space by Lawrence Wiener is a limited edition for Plus Design (nothing to do with +deco apart from the plus side!) and gives the room a pop touch (notice the cut corners to adapt to the room). The cabinet is an antique from the XVII century. The floor and the feautures are characteristic of a 1920‘s building. What else does a room need? If you can afford some very nice, quality design  pieces and some art, keep it simple. The pieces will speak for themselves (after the first glance). If you can’t, create a look. The general feeling will speak instead of the single pieces. 
The house -published in the Italian Grazia Casa (March 2013)- is in Milan and it is owned by Lilia Laghi (Interior Decorator) and Lorenzo Rossi (owner of the gallery Plus Design).
