Instagram We Love: @Laboratorioparavicini
Four words for you: hand-painted Italian ceramics.
Doesn't it just feel more luxurious to own something that was made with time, care, and precision? In our world of fast fashion and disposable furniture it's easy to get caught up in convenience over quality. But all it takes is one of our daily Instagram wormholes, and the subsequent discovery of something like @laboratorioparavicini, to put everything into perspective again.
Founded in 1990, this Milan-based atelier is carrying on the handcrafted traditions of yesteryear. Every plate, serving platter and bowl is hand-painted, and their designs span from timeless monograms to impressionistic doodles, appealing to a range of tastes and interior styles. Owning any number of these one-of-a-kind creations would elevate the everyday, making even the dreariest of leftovers feel like an elegant occasion. We'll never be able to look at our plain, everyday dishes the same.
