The Baroque wonder
Discover the collection
Florea Collection is made of unique pieces capable of evoking the famous wonder typical of the Baroque poetry. The volutes, the sinuos patterns and the complex Baroque motives are the source of inspiration for this sinuous and rich line.
The ornamental themes of Sixteenth Century architecture amplified by mirrored glass and light reflections constitute both decoration and essence. Florea handmade design shows an accurate harmony of shapes and lines multiplied almost indefinitely.
Every Florea Collection item has an evocative flower's name in order to better describe the beautiful decorations characterizing the line.
