Fornasetti's italian surrealism

I always believe a successful interior should be whimsical yet elegant. Who knew that better than milanese designer Piero Fornasetti?  Fornasetti imaginatively transformed lamps, coffeepots, chairs and plates into agents of humor, provocation and meaning. He produced an endless stream of variations on his personal leitmotifs, including the human hand, the female face, luminescent fish, bizarre creatures of the deep and playing cards.
He son took the business over and his creation have the some wit than his father.
