We have a style crush on Italian firm b-arch, headed by Prato-based Sabrina Bignami and Alessandro Capellaro; the duo creates projects featuring a mix of vintage (rustic marble sinks, leather trunks) and modern elements (Vola faucets, midcentury lights), as in this family house in Prato.
To see more of the firm’s work, go to b-arch.
