Iron and Wood

The Itapororoca Beach House in Trancoso, Brazil is surrounded by beautiful ocean views and decorated with warm personal touches. Francesca, the owner, inspired by her art-dealer father, has spent her life briefing art, and the result is a wonderful collection of treasures from around the world.

A brilliant example is this wall piece composed of three old looms made of metal and wood, found in a little village in the mountains of northern Brazil. For Francesca, it was love at first sight. “When I looked at the pieces I thought, this to me is art!” she remembers. “We decided to bring them to our house and create a wall piece with them.”

The finished product looks like a piece of modern art. It is the perfect accent for the living room, and it tells a beautiful story of past and present combined.
