Last week, one of our designers, Sumitra Mattai, travelled to Como for Proposte, an international textile fair.
In addition to attending the design fair, there was time to take in the beautiful sights of Lake Como, at the foothills of the Alps in Northern Italy.
Lunch at the Villa Erba, a 19th century villa in Cernobbio.
The Villa Erba's ornately painted ceilings, glass chandeliers and the view of the Lake.
After her time in Italy, Sumitra hopped a plane to visit family staying in Montpellier, France.
While Sumitra was in Como, Lori was celebrating her bday at home with Catherine Burns' new book, All These Wonders, True Stories About Facing the Unknown, presented by The Moth. A must read! Buy it on Amazon here.
