CARLO SCARPA


A great part of renovating is waiting, long and utterly boring wait... Patience, or rather the lack of patience is one of my characteristics. I want things to happen right away. So at this stage of our renovation the small part of patience that I actually possess is slowly diminishing into thin air. We were planned to move in this upcoming weekend, about two weeks delayed already. Yesterday the contractor told us, that's not happening. He will let us know later today when this magical move will occur...

Well, while I´m practicing this non characteristics of mine called patience, waiting for a new postponed move-in date, I´m working on finding an Italian glass chandelier. As you maybe already noticed I'm kind of obsessed with lightning, I love lamps. I think that lamps and carpets are one of those things that people in general misses when decorating at home.
So, I have been searching for an Italian style glass chandelier, 60's or 70's style. And the one that really got me hooked was this Carlo Scarpa one. After some research I might have to reconsider my first hand choice after discovering the some what high price range of these babies... I girl can still wish...

When conducting my search I learned that Carlo Scarpa was a most talented Italian architect from Venice, active upon his death in 1978. He was inspired of nature, used elements of water and often included garden architecture to his projects. Japan was also a great source of inspiration, which you can easily see in the clean lines and his selections of material.
