These curvy glass designs and full-figured baskets stopped us in our tracks on a recent visit to Garde in LA.  They're the work of Italian interior designers Fabio Cocchi and Luigi Rotta of Pianoprimo , who have been creating elegantly playful household staples since the early nineties. Garde owners Scotti Sitz and John Davidson discovered the duo at last fall's Maison et Objet and have just introduced the collection to the US. Anderson says, "We love that the designs look classic but very original at the same time. Besides being beautiful to look at, they can all be put to everyday use."  Above: The large Tess Carafe , blown glass with wood handles, is $195. Above: The small Tess Carafe  is $175. Above: The  Doris Glass Teapot  is $195. Above: The Coco Blown Glass Cloche is available in two sizes:  small  for $225, and large  for $285. Above: Large Blown Glass Spoons  are $75 each, no two exactly alike.   Above: The corset-stitched  Lakota Wicker Basket with flaps is $350.  Above: The  Lakota Double Basket , made of wicker embellished with red PVC twine and a wood handle, is $350.  Consult our Guide to Italy for more great design finds.
