Fall Entertaining Series | Appetizing Serving Displays

As we continue our series, let’s turn to our attention to creating an elegant serving display.

First, we are very excited about the inclusion of our new olive wood collection called Legna. These rich and elegant pieces are durable, come in a variety of sizes, and bring more of that natural element to any table.

All of our products function quite well for prepping, but they’re also attractive enough to go straight to the table for serving appetizers or incorporating into a buffet. And the Legna collection is no exception – they...

Introducing Buongiorno!

Buongiorno Rooster CollectionIntroducing Buongiorno! Our newest and most whimsical rooster pattern. Italian legend speaks highly of the rooster. In the 1400’s a crowing rooster saved the then ruler of Florence, Giuliano de’ Medici’s life. 15th-century Florence assassins targeted Guiliano de'Medici but, as they approached his palazzo, the loud crowing of alarmed roosters foiled the attack. In gratitude, and probably to publicize his invincibility and send a message to future assassins, Medici had hundreds of glazed clay wine pitchers made in the shape of roosters and distributed to the citizens...

A Message from Italy

From time to time, Stefano, the Owner of Modigliani Italia, will provide us news from Italy.

 

Summer… this is a magic word here in Italy. It means sun, seaside, vacations… and everybody is taking their vacation during August.

Therefore July is with no doubt the hardest working month of the year - but also the most thrilling for me and my staff here in Italy. Before the end of the month we must be ready with all our exciting projects for the fall and have ended all the works for the summer. During July we run and run to finish everything in time. We want to be sure that all the seeds that we planted during these months produce the fruits that we wish.

And so… at the end, here we are! Ready for our vacations and very, very happy with our new lines designed for Autumn 2014.

 

Ciao,

Stefano

Finally!

Yay! Our first shipment in a container on the sea has finally arrived! Just two days late, I couldn’t wait to unpack every single box so I did it all today. It is like Christmas for me to see the final product planned so long ago. Despite the sparsely air conditioned and dusty warehouse, I enjoyed every minute, crooning country music and digging deep into each pallet box. I can only hope those who receive these beautiful pieces will have a similar sense of joy.
