De Simone

/De Simone

This line was created by an Italian aristocrat turned artist, Giovanni De Simone, from Northern Sicily. De Simone greatly appreciated the work of famed artist Pablo Picasso, whose influences are evident in the bright colors and simple lines of his work. His designs and inspirations now live on through the work of his daughters. This collection features scenes reminiscent of Sicilian folk art, including the marketplace, wine making, and the Mediterranean Sea. No two pieces or the De Simone collection are alike, which makes each item rare and unique. It is worth noting that due to the individual attention each piece receives, the colors and designs are sure to vary from the catalog photos.
