We’ve been fans of Il Buco and Il Buco Alimentari & Vineria, a duo of restaurants by prop designer turned restaurateur Donna Lennard, for authentic Italian rusticity—and food—in downtown Manhattan for a while now. (See: Il Buco Alimentari and Vineria in NYC: Kitchen as Still-Life.)
But recently we’ve been noting more delicate Italian tableware at Lennard’s accompanying shop, Il Buco Vita: pastel ceramics and soft-hued glassware, sourced from trips to central and southern Italy (and never before sold in the US). Here are the pieces we’re admiring for spring fetes.
