The creative insight behind “unusual living rooms” comes from two small handwritten booklets, recently discovered in the Fornasetti archive. This collection of unpublished drawings and writings by Piero Fornasetti depicts suns with human faces and other unusual features. One of the unusual living rooms — “Solitario“, “sole” meaning “sun” in Italian — presents these unseen illustrations as part of furnishing decorations that form a complete interior setting.

Fornasetti has unveiled “unusual living rooms” — five different proposals for interior settings. United by the imaginative fantasy that distinguishes the atelier’s decorations, the five living rooms are titled: leopardo, facciata quattrocentesca, malachite, soli a ventaglio, and solitario. Sofas, armchairs, and benches are complemented with tables, lamps, mirrors, and other accessories, endowing a living room with an ironic yet sophisticated ambiance.

“From a collection of ironic drawings, made by my father with that lightness of his that was never sentimental, there emerged a desire to build spaces that create a special atmosphere for a time and a place that will once again be shared,” explains Barnaba Fornasetti.

Although diverse in inspiration — architectural, natural, or purely graphic — the decorations all pay tribute to the unmistakable style found in Fornasetti’s drawings and engravings.

Attention to detail and expert craftsmanship brings life to the original drawings, resulting in truly artistic creations that reflect Fornasetti’s inexhaustible imagination. The fabrics that cover the seats have printed trompe l’oeil or optical motifs that continue on the tubular iron structures, thereby creating subtle echoes and illusions.
