Premises that for many years held a hairdressing salon, remained empty when the owner retired then took on a new lease of life as the L’alcova interior design and furnishing company brought new colour and movement to Via di Borgo but that too is now this weekend coming to a close.
The L’alcova interior design and furnishing company who had for a number of years occupied the showroom and point of sale is permanently closing down its operations in Barga.
This Saturday, 12th January and Sunday the 13th January, Paolo Caravacci will be selling the last of his emblematic hand finished furniture and fittings.
Featured at the Salon del Mobile in Florence and popping up in some of the glossier Milan based fashion magazines, Paolo Caravacci and his handpicked team of designers have been carving out a name for themselves since 1983 with simple but very fashionable designs for beds, tables and chairs using natural elements, where the wood is seen as wood and any “imperfections” are actually incorporated into the design.
