When I’m in Venice (winter is especially romantic, with cold mists and few tourists), I’m drawn to Palazzo Fortuny, the former home of Mariano Fortuny. The Spanish-born, Paris-raised Venetian was at heart an artist who could design anything, from theater sets to timeless dresses and textiles. Fortuny’s commitment to the handmade inspired me to think about objects created by artisans—not manufacturers! I’d be thrilled to have anything here under my tree, especially since I know each has been made with care, innovation and personal spirit.
