Italianness – Internationality
Lovethesign has an Italian DNA and we are proud of this because Italy is a special country, this is where the phenomenon of product design was born. We know we belong to a historical and cultural context which has unmistakable contents, our creative experience and our communicative actions thrive on them. This inclination is able to expand itself, with identical passion and selection skills, to international design.
Design is also a visual fact, objects play an active part in the pleasure that comes from living a place. Beauty is a concrete need, the main part in the successful outcome of an object. Our idea of design is tightly bound to the knowledge of the history, the manufacturing processes, the great excellence that make it an expression of the genius and the evolution of man. For us, design is the elective tool in our exciting mission enhancing the value of all the spaces where we spend our time, to make them cosy and an expression of our identity.
We build together with our brand-partners synergistic and innovative solutions, able to supply additional channels to the promotion of their product, by respecting the identity of the brand we help in broadening the chances for it to be accessible for architects, interior designers and contractors during the process of making design choices. Lovethesign is able to generate connections and new opportunities.
The care for the user experience is central for us. We strongly believe that visibility finalises and builds customer loyalty if you are credible: this happens when you carefully care the very delicate relationship between what is communicated and what is actually accepted. A subtle thread lies between storytelling and storydoing, the alignment of these two elements is one brand’s reputation and it represents its credibility heritage. What’s central for us is the care for the user experience, design culture, immediacy and simplicity of use, which widens to every form of communication.
What’s an online boutique?
An online boutique is first and foremost an exclusive selection of brands and products of the utmost quality. It’s culture and it’s future. It’s the place where you can find the most prestigious brands and the latest in design. It’s the best digital experience you’ll come across. It’s the easiest and safest way to shop, no matter where you live.
An online boutique also represents a commitment to selling original products only and to collaborating side by side with brands. It’s the desire to create a community of home design enthusiasts like you, offering a personalised service and the ability to turn your home into the house of your dreams.
Why stick to home design only?
Go hard or go home. We may love exotic trips, weekend getaways and the electric vibes of a bustling city, but our ideal place is still one in the same: the house.
What I’d give to live here: We’re sure you thought that to yourself when you saw fishermen leaving the port at dawn from Cinque Terre, when you discovered the side of Brunelleschi’s dome in Florence from your window or when you were taken aback by New York’s skyline at sunset. The dream always revolves around the house. A house that needs to be decorated with passion, because every day can change the way you and your loved ones live.
How did this passion for home design come to be?
Houses grow, like you and with you. Every house has its own character, but your house has your style. And as you take care of it, you take care of yourself.
Design is our passion: but not just that. We love fashion week and Italian high fashion, travelling and city art culture, running and the park and eating (and drinking) as one should. But the house is a more rounded and rewarding experience when compared to looks out on the town or a mouth-watering plate of fettuccine. It’s what defines us. It’s who we are. Because you can’t judge a book by its cover, but the house is a full read.
So how is the LOVEThESIGN selection assembled?
There’s an Italian influence from an international market. From Milan to Stockholm, from Vienna to Lisbon, from Paris to London, and everything in between, LOVEThESIGN picks and chooses the right selection to display.
LOVEThESIGN has both a permanent selection and weekly deals. We strive to offer the best in home design, without stopping there. We also put on display the passion of the people and companies who’ve turned normal, everyday objects into works of art. Design is a culture and we’re working on spreading it to everyone.
