I returned to the Bizzirri showroom recently in Cerbara, Italy. It’s just down the road from our place in Sansepolcro. I couldn’t wait to see the store’s latest offerings. So take a look at these new photos.
From Bizzirri Casual to Formal: It’s All Good
You can order rustic with Bizzirri or something more formal such as this beautiful and elegant white and gold place setting. The showroom is a candy store of lovely tableware and housewares. A riot of beautiful colors and shapes, bold and soft. I was entranced. My husband sat in the car and made phone calls back to his office.
I spoke with Francesco Bizzirri (the son) and Mariela Bizzirri (the mother) about questions I’ve received regarding their products. One question: can I put a baking dish in the oven that I bought several years ago at Neiman Marcus? Francesco tells me that it all depends on the particular line of dish and when it was purchased. He said if he was contacted by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org, he might be able to answer these questions. An accompanying photo would be good as well.
Here, a table of deep color contrasting with stark white dishes, pitchers and interesting oggetti. Although the Bizzirri showroom in and of itself is rather stark, the company excells in presentation of its product.
I fell in love with this table of bright red and floral dishes and serving trays. Alas, as Grandma used to say, you can’t have everything…where would you put it.
This is a delicate grape-patterned set of dishes that go so well with the solid color greens.
Nobody makes turquoise ceramics like Bizzirri, as you can see by these lovely urns.
Another soft pattern paired with a deep shade of solid green. With matching candlesticks and deep carmel-colored accessories. Even the glassware coordinates.
So the above pattern is what I ordered last summer, minus the bottom charger. Photos don’t do it justice. I wanted something completely different from anything I’d had before, which meant no flowers , no fruit. The polka-dot sottopiatti (chargers) were not on display last summer so I didn’t order any. I told Mariela Bizzirri I loved the chargers but polka-dot dishes weren’t my thing. She said she could make them without the dots if I wanted a set. She can make them in the rustic gold color as well. Bizzirri is versatile that way as they make dishes to order.
More beautiful golden urns and pitchers.
The above exquisite-looking pitcher is something new for Bizzirri. It’s made similar to the crackle technique of Japanese ceramics.
Sorry about the lighting. Parts of the showroom have more light than others and I was armed with my iPhone. The blue here is deep and rich, the pattern rustic.
More distressed-finish turquoise set against very simple white trays.
Back to blue and even cobalt…the first time I’d seen that color in the showroom.
