The Paola Navone Collection from Crate and Barrel inspires an idyllic image of sitting sea-side, sharing an alfresco feast of fresh fish and olives and wine, the open sky and surf meeting on the far-off horizon. Now, translate this pristine visual into a collection of indoor and outdoor furnishings, decor and lighting inspired by the Mediterranean and the life aquatic. Fluid lines, a palette of organic materials, and oh, the colors! Turquoise blues and coral reds are as rich as their watery muse. From the designer, "This collection is full of energy... inspired by the merriment of having a picnic. Vibrant and colorful, each piece has a different personality to mix and layer in surprising ways." We love how Navone incorporates subtle nuances of the sea-side life, like the reed-inspired Como pendant Lamp, and the unexpected twists and turns of the coral red Como Loopy Candleholders, to the literal translation of Fish dinnerware and serving plates, taking pescetarianism to a whole new level. The look is eclectic and layered, allowing you to add elements as desired - and as inspired! We like to think of it as a collection of treasures, washed up ashore. Check it out at Crate and Barrel.
