ORNAMENTS is a small Italian brand focusing on interior decoration and accessories with a strong connotation of art. It was founded in 2004 by Alessandra F. Borzacchini, who combines ready-made elements with inconsequential materials and technics that create unconventional and uniquely designed pieces.
Words such as transformability, mobility, modularity, stackability, sustainability, durability, and craftsmanship are amongst the many ways to describe the ORNAMENTS' design process.
Embroidered tables, Trays with legs made of coffeepots, Wooden wine-crates, transformed into delicate etageres, these are only a few of ORNAMENTS' offerings; all from a different point of view on interior decoration (the Ornaments' logo is an eye!), which suggests fluid, not static living spaces. Where it's creations follow you on your life's journeys. They are elegant, minimal, colorful, functional, narrative, and amusing.
In interior design ORNAMENTS' primary goal in responding to customer requests is to create environments where Harmony ties all the elements together, in the aim of delivering a welcoming, comfortable, balanced, functional environment where to live in.
Alessandra Francesca Borzacchini
After graduating from Japanese Language and Literature at La Sapienza University in Rome, traveling to the Far East, Europe and America, a precious experience in the field of fashion in Milan, and several years of study and practice in the applied arts, in 2004 she founded Ornaments as an interior decoration firm, specialized in restyling old pieces of furniture as a custom service. Since 2007 Alessandra makes one-off pieces or small series as self-producer, mixing up design, art and handycraft. Following the ready-made principles, the result is a not conventional design.
