Cabana Magazine Launches Dazzling New Homeware Collection


Cabana Magazine is a biannual publication celebrating exquisite Italian interior design that was founded by Martina Mondadori Sartogo in 2014, and has now developed its own homeware line. Sartorgo’s appreciation for the stories behind living spaces was kindled by her father, publisher and collector Leonardo Mondadori, who favoured Impressionist drawings and ancient Roman mosaics, and who supported her growing interest with extensive travel throughout her childhood.

This globe-trotting narrative translates into the collection’s Italian-crafted dining linens, hand-blown Murano glassware and statement ceramics in rich and vibrant hues; pieces that are designed to be displayed and loved throughout a lifetime.

Cabana has collaborated with Matches to create a collection bringing a rainbow of fun to the table. The striking new pieces mix color and pattern creating elegant, bold looks. “Never follow obvious matching rules. Mix colors, patterns, old and new. Flowers should feel loose, never manicured. I prefer lots of small bouquets rather than one big central one,” Sartogo says. “And always start with the tablecloth to build your ‘look’. Then start layering and mixing. After all, one says ‘dress your table’ for a reason!”

The plates are hand-painted in Italy, the glasses blown in Murano, and the linen are inspired by the pattern of vestments from Renaissance Venice. The collection is colorful, vibrant, and unexpected in keeping with the movement to brightness in interior design. Here are some of our favorites, and the full collection is available to buy HERE.
