Florence time

Here's what you can do through this site:

Visit our online shop
View a collection of contemporary artworks and accent pieces for interiors created by hand using fine quality materials and historical techniques. The shop is updated regularly with newly created artistic artisan works for sale.

Visit our design studio
View some of our past projects and read details on how you can custom order or commission work from our studio and associated artisans. We produce fine Florentine hand painted and gilded furniture, frames, reproductions, decorative panels and accessories from our studio in Florence, using traditional historically correct techniques to give them quality and authenticity. We work predominantly 'to the trade' for interior designers but we are also happy to meet the needs of individual clients.

Learn Traditional Italian Artisan skills
We offer the possibility to take private lessons in the arts of gilding, decorative painting, Venetian plasters and restoration of paintings. We can also organize courses for groups upon request. Participants learn traditional European decoration techniques in our school-laboratory in Florence or in scenic Tuscan settings, carefully chosen for participants to enjoy the good life. These courses are a must for faux and trompe l'oeil painters, interior designers, antique restorers, crafts people and art connoisseurs.

Book a private tour of the Artisan Quarter
Florence is one of the few remaining cities in the world with a flourishing artisan quarter that has been in existence since the renaissance. Participants on this intimate walking tour get a behind the scenes glimpse at gilding, restoration, furniture painting, silver work, and marble inlay in the small, sometimes hidden, workshops of this charming district.
