Italian based Danord like to encourage their customers to combine pieces belonging to different periods to create interesting, contemporary interiors. Owner, Francesca Gatti specialises in vintage Scandinavian design but also carefully selects new pieces from Northern Europe that complement the style perfectly. Her aim is not to reconstruct an era, but to reinterpret and combine it with the style of today. She is fascinated by the relationship between the new and the original – creating an ‘ideal space’ free from any pre-established scheme and design criterion, always leaving room for individual interpretation. Gatti combines beautiful vintage wooden furniture with exquisite Danish studio pottery, adding contemporary textiles that complement the style perfectly. After all, it’s all about mixing it up these days, and Danord does it brilliantly.
