That’s a statement: colour rules ! From the shop window, you can’t help but notice C&C Milano’s display for the Milan Design Week. Novelties and classics, for bedding and upholstery, take new bright colours and fill the home with joy… And of course linen works wonders on these colours, thanks to its exceptionnal dye affinity…
Then you enter the showroom/boutique and notice the little twist in the accessories, such as the cushions, featuring new shapes or innovative fabrics (Maremma plisse is also featured in Radical Linen)…

I could stay for hours discussing decoration and architecture with Emmanuele Castellini, founder of C&C Milano. His passion is as great as his cousin’s: Piero Castellini Baldissera is the designer who renovated Villa Necchi – built in the thirties and whose architect was Piero’s grandfather, Piero Portaluppi.
More about the family here.
More about Villa Necchi exhibition 13 April-6May with FAI and Fabrica to come soon…
