Villa Scarpariello (Italy). "All five rooms are filled with family heirlooms and artisan handiwork—antique writing desks, pink-and-turquoise Vietri tiles—and have wooden shutters that open onto the Mediterranean. If you’re looking for a stretch of powdery sand, head to Baia di Castiglione, a 10-minute walk away, though the villa’s pool and waterfront deck are just as inviting."
1730-1740 Italian (Venice) Armchair (one of two) at the J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles - From the curators' comments: "Probably used as much for display as for actual seating, these richly carved and gilded armchairs would have been arranged against the walls of a reception room in a Venetian palace in the 1700s." Stylistically speaking, they reflect the transition between the heavy grandeur of the Baroque and the whimsical quality of the Rococo periods.
1740 Italian (Turin) Stand at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Los Angeles - I like that there's a bit of trompe l'oeil work going on here: when I first saw this, it looked like there was a piece of fabric draped over a wooden stand, but no. It's all done by ivory inlays and marquetry work.
