The continent boasts the largest variety of cultures and landscapes, even though it is one of the smallest continents in the world. Europe is also soaked in history, offering countless artifacts and historic sights from the ancient Greeks and Romans to modern day European Union.

In Search of Tuscan Treasures My sister, Elene, had the idea of purchasing a hand painted chest of drawers. She wanted the kind that bulge of out their contours in that rococco style that evokes a more graceful age. What better excuse for a trip to Italy? We were interested in antiques, but also in contemporary artisan products. We focused on Tuscany, and... Read more >>>
