We were so touched at how our friend Anu of Nalle's House made Artek a part of the intimate summer dinner she held for her family. We love the way the pink hydrangeas compliment the vibrant blue pattern of the Meadow Flower linens and tray. Her thoughtful details, beautiful table setting, and what we're sure is delicious cooking made this evening one for her family to remember and such a gift to share with us. 

A close-up on the Artek Meadow Flower tray as an understated and beautiful centerpiece.

A peak down the length of the perfectly set table. Anu's mother hand-made the tablecloth, and we love her gorgeous mix of new and heirloom linens.

The brass wire napkin rings were made for the occasion, though you'd never guess with how delicately they pair alongside the Meadow Flower pattern.

It almost looks too pretty to eat...almost!

Anu themed her blueberry cupcakes to the evening's colors, making dessert extra special.

Such simple, yet stunning detail. 

 

Thank you Anu, for having Artek be a part of this special evening!

What I Do.

I run a PR and marketing firm that represents some of the best in design - Artek (Full disclosure!), FLOS, Alessi, MissoniHome, and more. I am a love of great design and I am always curious...what's next? What's real? That's why we are also involved in Be Original Americas.

Where I Live.

In an apartment in New York City - it's modern but not at all cold. I own a few highly functional, classic pieces, which are complemented by a collection of favorite objects from my travels, as well as curated objects from the design community.

Who I Am.

Emiliano Casarosa
Hair stylist, artist, and home renovator.
Owner of LaCasaPark.

What I Do.

Mainly I'm a hairstylist. I run my studio here [in Brooklyn], and have private clients that I see daily by appointment. But my background is completely different. I studied fashion and painting. I was an art dealer, and I ended up in my current career by some kind of default. Now I'm also returning to my sculpting and painting. I like to do everything. It's a creative process.


Where I Live. 

I have very deep interest in architecture, design, and interiors. So, in addition to my apartment in Brooklyn, I started to buy homes in upstate New York - I renovate them and turn them into rental places. They are based in a designed environment. I can enjoy them on the weekends, and people can also enjoy the design, the objects, plus they can buy everything in there.

My Artek.

For me, Artek is fun. That's the first word that comes to me. It is iconic. There is somehow new technology implemented into the design. Those little things embrace my personality. That's what I love about it. I can place their objects anywhere I want because that's how I live my life. It doesn't matter if there's a very formal corner of my house - I'm just going to put a yellow still there and it'll work.
