For this project pass, the idea to the execution takes almost two months, for the interior designer Sophie Wannenes open her first gallery, Palermo Uno.
Set in her former home and studio on the second floor of a quintessentially Milanese apartment building (think on color-blocked marble inlay, classical architectural references, triumphant entranceway) overlooking via Palermo in the city’s Brera Design District.
A decorator and vintage dealer by trade, her goal for space was to open a place that expressed her creative vision while introducing clients to the designers and artisans she has come to love, like a gallery.
You can see on the gallery the typically Milanese glamour, with a deeply saturated yet buoyant color palette, an eclectic mix of furniture sourced from the ever-fertile vintage markets populating Italy’s northern hinterlands, plus a neatly edited range of contemporary pieces by designers from both home and abroad.
The unifying concept behind the project is that everything is available to purchase through the gallery, which skews the vibe from hands-off design gallery to a cozy local shop.
