In 1968, Carlo Scarpa was invited by his close friends, Laura and Gianni Tabarelli, to the slopes of the vineyard village of Cornaiano near Bolzano, Italy. The couple, who were regular patrons in the circles of the Italian design elite, founded their furniture showroom through which they sold Gianni’s pieces. At this point in time, Scarpa had already established a name for himself within the world of architecture, and having built up a strong relationship over the years, they asked him to design a house for their family alongside his longtime collaborator, Sergio Los. The result is a work that has been rarely seen with timeless furnishings and works of art.
The coolest lady ever walked this earth, kind of: Jacqueline Lee “Jackie” Kennedy Onassis. “She retained French-born American fashion designer and Kennedy family friend Oleg Cassini in the fall of 1960 to create an original wardrobe for her as First Lady. In 1961, Kennedy spent $45,446 more on fashion than the $100,000 annual salary her husband earned as president. Although Cassini was her primary designer, she also wore ensembles by French fashion legends such as Chanel, Givenchy, and Dior.”
