Shares

Historic Italy has spawned some of the most important furniture and product designers of contemporary times, such as Gio Ponti, Gaetano Pesce, Ettore Sottass, Vico Magisteretti and Antonio Citterio. Italian design is sleek, intelligent, and has an air of sexiness to it.  Here are some modern picks that you may want to consider for your space.

Picks by Paula de Guzman, Dagny Madamba, and Tala Singson. Photographed by Kurt Alvarez/ACME Visual Productions, Dairy Darilag and Paolo Feliciano.
