If it’s futuristic design inspo you’re looking for, then Castorina and Co think you’re looking in the wrong place. Specialising in original and restored vintage pieces from European post-war era, this interior store is all about one-of-a-kind furniture, limited edition items, and the kind of stuff your grandpa would lust over. This extends to include some of Italy’s biggest names in design, such as Marco Zanuso, Afra & Tobia Scarpa, Cassina and Poltronova and Giancarlo Piretti.

The showroom itself feels like a mash-up of Italian Vogue circa 1970 and Mad Men, the Europe edition, with plenty of emphasis on decadent leathers, suave armchairs, and museum-grade ornaments and art. Going backwards never looked so good.
